A day to remember
Bit of this
We finally make it to Tintern Abby which has can now be ticked off man about the house's hit list. The best bit for me though was our stop on the banks of the Severn. I love the expanse of river bed the receding tide has exposed. Now I put seeing the Severn Bore on my hit list.
The village hall is filled with mums with children, sprinklings of teenage girls, 2 men and grannies. We are here to experience the wonders of a big screen and Mama Mia. Pop corn and alcohol plus ice-creams can be consumed in the interval. The raffle was won by nearly all one family who sportingly throw several tickets back into the hat.
Oh I won my own raffle prize, we are to be grandparents apparently. Emotions rush through me that surely have the force of the bore in full flow. No chance of throwing this one back into the hat and all of a sudden I decide that I don't want to.
Bit of that
