Day out in Cheltenham

Gina has sent me this beautiful corsage (thank you Gina) so I can wear it when I join the bloggy friends meeting up for our Bloggers Convention in London on Friday which Lucy Locket suggested here

Yesterday we travelled up to Cheltenham to take Ali out to lunch to celebrate her birthday. We visited a shopping centre/mall with a clock that performs on the hour. It spins round collecting balls and this triggers bubbles from the mouth of the fish. A little mouse also pops out at different points around the clock face. Then we walked around Cheltenham and found some lovely shops. I found some unusual tea spoons from the Whittards shop to add to my collection.
We then stopped for lunch in an Italian Restaurant where the food was delicious. The journey up to Cheltenham only took us just under 3 hours and 3 1/2 hours to come back and that included going on the M25. Before we left Ali showed us a very funny clip on YouTube but it is one of those catchy little tunes that stays in your head. :-)

I have been knitting like fury for the last two weeks to make my bunny for Heleen in the Bunny-hop-Bunny-swap and she's nearly finished. I haven't posted any pictures as that would spoil the surprise.

I love the spoons, whittards is one of my favorite shops!
And although ive never seen or read any of the harry potter films / books, the youtube clip was incredibly catchy!! And over 36 million people have watched it! Gosh we waste so much time!
