Saturday 24th to Sunday 25th September
A trip to Banbury with Gary this Saturday afternoon. We just had a nice wander around the shops.
On the way in we noticed that one of the car parks had started to be knocked down. So on the way back we stopped to take some pictures!
It seems silly that this car park should hold special memories for me. But on a Saturday afternoon when I was a child, I always used to go into Banbury shopping with my mum and dad and sometimes my sisters or a friend. We used to walk around to White Lion Walk and buy some freshly made jam doughnuts from the bakery there (you could actually watch the machine that injected the jam into the doughnuts!), my dad used to like to go into the deli that was also there and buy some ham off the bone! I never used to get any pocket money but I was usually allowed to buy a book (which almost certainly would have been Enid Blyton as I had a great collection of her books). And so this was the car park which we always used to go into.
So yet another piece of my past that is now disappearing 😦
Happy Birthday Hannah 🎁 But she wasn’t around to celebrate her day with us 😦 She had gone away camping with Julie 🏕 (yes camping – at the end of September! so rather them than me 💨🌧) so Sunday was a day spent not doing anything too exciting.
But then there did turn out to be a bit of excitement in the evening. Unusually I found out it was going to be a curry Sunday 😁. Haven’t had one for such a long time, and then it was on Saturday evenings!
A chicken, cauliflower and green bean pasanda with sweet potato in mustard seeds as a side dish, rice and a garnish of chopped tomatoes 😋
I want to do a sponsored walk/trek for my chosen charities. It is something I have wanted to do for a long time and especially now after having my transplants. This year has kind of just passed me by, especially after getting the news that we had to leave the house we are in now and at first I really had no idea what we were going to do 😦 It’s kind of turned our lives upside down again. But I am now starting to tell myself that next year could be the year when I will actually achieve this 🤔
Here are some long distance paths that the British Heart Foundation recommend for their walks. Will I be found along one of these next year? We will see …
