Today Was a Win

 Sharon - thank you.

Today was a win. I dropped bear off at school, had a quick wipe over the car and then off and met my friend. We were looking for charity shops. I want a vase and she wanted, well, to have a look. We had a wander around Hebden Bridge with their market, and then went on to Huddersfield where we had a wander around there. We had a lot of gossip to catch up on.

It was nice to get out and about. Kirklees have some great covid signs, by the way. I keep meaning to take pictures of the six footballs or two cricket bats that demonstrate the two meters we should stay apart, but I found this.

Felix and Bolt are the Huddersfield Railway Station Cats with a significant internet following - their facebook page is here.

I drove 62 miles, some of it down extremly narrow, single car width lanes with passing places. I went up some serious hills and down them. I took corners that were ridiculous and I had an absolute blast. I even got up to around 55mph on the dual carriageway at one point. What is even better, I didn't buy much. I picked up some black bread for DH, which he really likes, but I didn't pick up anything else. That, for me, is a big win. 

Then I had a wonderfully quiet knit in Morrison's car park while I waited for bear, and then drove home. I made dinner straight away, got washed up and now I am abot to collapse.

It's a win.

Hugs and good health to all.


  1. My daughter used to see the cat every morning on her way to Uni in Leeds - I am surprised she didn't bring him home.

  2. What a lovely day, spending time with friends is so important and you still have a vase to buy. Valx

  3. Sound like you had a great day out. I visited Huddersfield for the first time a couple of years ago and found it a charming city with lots of quirky shops - and yes, I did follow the granite trail for an hour to look at unusual building materials in the city centre's fine buildings.
