Midland Meander

Ahh… The Midland Meander! What a terrific day – a great way to spend your first day back home. It was Mom, Granny Claire, Pops and myself. We had no specific agenda besides brunch at Piggly Wiggly’s so we literally did do a meander, stopping at whatever tickled our fancy. We dropped by Peels Honey Shop and we were able to stock up on a few treats (myself for back home at Rhodes), a home store that specialises in wind chimes where Mom had the pleasure of picking one for our garden, and then lastly Nottingham Brewery. That dear brewery is just delightful! We refreshed ourselves with splendid beer shandys made with ginger ale instead of lemonade and their brand of light lager. Delicious! While there we happened upon quite a relaxing hammock-type chair that Mom could just not resist taking home with her. I’m glad I won’t be here when it’s hung up for I rather think I’d fall asleep in it instead of learning in it if I took advantage of it. I can’t wait to go back again in lush summer, or even spending a night up in the mountains.
