Well it was pay day this week so I decided to treat myself. I'm sure for many women this would mean shoes, make-up, a night on the town..... Nope I've booked myself on a coach trip to Ally Pally and bough a couple of balls of yarn. Last of the big spenders eh!
I also took a trip over to picturesque Lavenham in Suffolk. I've heard a lot about this place, not least because they have a renounded Spinners Guild. Unfortunately I wasn't there for spinning but it was a lovely place to have a look round.
Lavenham was very prosperous in the 15th and 16th centuries thanks to the wool trade. It would have been nice to have had a bit more of a look round but unfortunately they weather wasn't that great and I had things to do.
It's been a long week and I'm now looking forward to my armchair upstairs and some knitting ;-) Perhaps tomorrow I'll have the energy to block my mams shawl.
