A New Poppy!

We left Milton Keynes yesterday, to head back to Bolly.  It was a very slow drive, probably due to the fact that there were very few trains running.

Spotted this car on the M1.....what is it....Jap for sure but haven't a clue as to model ...

Once again the car was loaded to the gunnels.  We had picked up some stuff that had been stored at my mother's house!

The doggies just managed sleeping room ...

We stopped off at Stone and had a cuppa and a chat with Ray and Diane from NB Ferndale ...


This morning was a cracker of a day, blue skies, no wind and no degrees!

We went for another walk around Bolly and its environs ...

We headed for a flat walk along the canal, past the Clarence Mill, which is now home to offices and residential units ...

Picture perfect day ...


There was some poetry nailed to a gate allong the towpath.  I think Gwen must have been on the Wacky Backy when she penned this ...

Tow path pose ...

There was a lot of snow on the hills surrounding Bolly ...


After we got home we took a drive to Macclesfield to pick up a very important parcel that had been delivered to Elaine's dad!

We took a detour over the hills to check out the snow ...



The parcel was the poppy that we ordered after seeing them at The Tower of London back in September ...

I was very glad that it arrived undamaged, there was even a bit of genuine Tower of London moat mud on it!

It is a terrific memento and to me is priceless.
