Ummmm funny how the sunshine is back today - it seemed to spend lots of time this weekend hiding behind a cloud. However that didn't stop MrVV & I having a great weekend away in Cambridge. We walked miles each day - Cambridge is just that sort of place. Saturday was a mix of tourist stuff and shopping. Mainly kitting out the boys & MrVV who seem to get through stuff so quickly. Yes I did treat myself to a something in CK with my birthday money - shall show you that later ;)
Whats comes into your mind when Cambridge is mentioned??
Bicycles everywhere - these were outside Kings College - can you spot the porter in the distance?
Punting on the Cam - perhaps one day I'll get over my fear of water and have a go.
Rowing - perhaps these beginners will have more luck than this years Light Blues?
Willow trees with new leaves and banks of daffodils
More punts and the trees in blossom by one of the colleges (can't remember which one)
I love the houseboats - some are amazing with their on board gardens and collections of random things.
After a full english breakfast on Sunday, we headed back into the city. We walked along the banks of the river, sat people watching, watched some mad people abseiling down the side of the Guild Hall and then walked some more. Once our feet were worn out and our wallets empty, we headed home. I spotted my favourite bicycle parked just near where we'd left the car;
Just loved the leopard print :)
We arrived home mid afternoon and we met with bemusement by MIL & big son - they asked why we were home so early and we replied it wasn't that early it was about 4pm - then the penny dropped - they'd forgotten about the clocks changing!!
I suppose you'd like to see my CK purchase?? Well I saw a postcard at the weekend that said a girl can never have enough shoes, chocolate and handbags!! So true!
I fell in love with this bag at the beginning of the year and finally on Saturday as I had enough money, I gave in. I might have bought a few other bits over the weekend too but I can't show you today - as they are for swaps and my giveaway (more new on that later this week).
Right the sun is shining and the washing bin overflowing so I'd best go and do something domestic!!
See you soon
