Boxing Day 2012 - weather not too bad, - good enough for a walk around town and a chance to get some fresh air & walk off the Christmas over indulgences!  ... joined by Steph and Rob we visited the site...

The town was quiet, the Old Silk Mill looked great on a day like today, - so peaceful & quiet ! ....  it started to rain on the way home, - thankfully there are 3 pubs en-
route which were all very busy but provided adequate shelter!!!  ....  work to the cottage due to start again early in the new year.

Nothing much to report yesterday Thursday 13th,  work continued digging foundations which had to be observed by an Archaeologist (just incase we found a Roman Villa or something!  .. thankfully we didn't -!!)

I wasn't going to stay around for long  ..... it was fffffrrrrreeeezing !!!!!!!

I headed off to Stratford upon Avon Christmas market  ... much more fun :-)
Loads of goodies there, but best of all my dear friend Judith was selling her wonderful soap, and as she's so photogenic I couldn't resist adding a picture to the blog !  "Hi Judith!"

This wonderful soap will be complimentary to guests staying at Crafty Cottage
