Harrogate, Llangollen and Lincoln

All in one week!!!

Last night Gav and I went to the Llangollen Fringe Festival (or part of it) to see the.......Da da....
 ...Legendary English punk band...

... here... at the Pavillion in Llangollen
Of course, this is what they look like now.  The festival organisers managed to botch up the sound and i think even the band got a bit annoyed with them, but eventually they managed to get it right so it was a reasonable gig!!!
Sunday and Monday this week was spent at the Harrogate Home and Gift Show.  What made it much nicer this year was that we stayed with our lovely friends, Jas and Helen in Leeds on the Sunday evening, they took us out for a fab Italian Meal.  It's only about twenty minutes then into Harrogate from where they live, so it was much more relaxing for us.  We managed to find loads of new suppliers, which was great because we have lots of money to spend!  He! he!  Well.....what would you do faced with all this eye candy?

 The displays of some the companies were ideas in themselves, i loved all the cabinets and ideas for displaying their goods, came home with my head humming and a need to get started on some change in the shop.

 Hmmm.....which gorgeous scarfs to choose? !!
 And....tomorrow...we're off on our travels again to Lincoln to Tony and Monica's Garden Party where Edgar Broughton is playing in his garden!!!   We'll meet up with a few of our friends from the wedding, we can't wait, we're hoping we might have a bit of time to visit the cathedral and have some lunch in the old part of town.
Nicci's here helping for the summer, she looked after the shop and Lizzie whilst we went to Harrogate and she's here again this weekend whilst we're off to Lincoln, so she's having a day off today - which is just as well because she was late in last night having been out with friends - and we're off to Bishop's Castle this afternoon for a nice walk around a visit to the book shopand some special mother/daughter time.....bliss!!!

A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present,
and the hope and promise of the future.
