A great start

I'm full of cold!

The first (official) day of the Autumn half term and I'm full of cold - bah humbug.

Can you tell I don't do 'ill' all that well?

Fortunately it held off for the weekend just gone as we headed west on Saturday for a very special occasion. My little sister's big birthday bash!

I'll spare you the details and silly pictures of drunken maidens (not I - I was very good) but will love you and leave you with a few (literally) pictures I did take on our child free walk into Guildford along the canal.

If you walk over the wooden bridge (just a name it's not really wooden!) that takes you over the A3 you will find a little tow path that skirts you past all the industrial bit and on into town. Or you could find the tiny car park on Walnut Tree Close. Ten-ish cars max.

It's a pretty little walk or stroll, depending on how slow you want to take it and this weekend the sunlight was bouncing off the water making everything sparkle and shimmer.

Not much shopping was done due to being unfamiliar with the town centre. After many years of living there I had forgotten where to find the bargains though I did have a blast down memory lane with all the places (pubs and clubs) I used to frequent.

And a very lovely time was had, even though a very regrettable - elbow to elbow - meal (and wait) in the Jamie Oliver restaurant. When did a top chef turn into a chain?!

Anyhoo - I'm off to curl up with my hot water bottle with lashings of cuddles, tea and sympathy.

Have a beautiful day.
