Not the sort of day that I had hoped for, wet and dreary when I got into town.
The food market was making a brave attempt to attract customers but nobody was really in the mood to buy much, least of all stand around to eat it, although I would recommend the roast potatoes. The workmen are putting together the decking for Nottingham Riviera which looks like it may be a wash out if the summer doesn't arrive soon !
The fountains just added to the dampness of the day.
So I trundled down to Costa and had a quiet spin with occasional company from small children asking what I was doing. Managed to fill a bobbin the ply up two more, not my best spin/ply but I rarely spin from fleece and these two skeins still need a good wash.
Finished the day by calling in for tea with Wikkidknitter and one of his friends and took the opportunity to tidy and tie off his bobbin lace sample
so neat :-)
Then bumped into an Indian customer of mine from my day job on the way home who wanted to know what was in the bag, I explained it was a spinning wheel and we embarked on a discussion about Gandhi , sadly I had to decline the offer of coffee and make a dash for my bus.
Tonight we have tried to reserve a room on a French Hotel only to find that Great Britain, UK, England, Angleterre, Grande Bretagne etc not listed as a country that we can travel from!
