We spent most of the day shopping, getting the final lot of Christmas pressies in the Telford shopping centre. We’ve still got a few to get, but we’ve taken care of 99.9% of them all now!
We got to the cottage around 3.15 which was 45 minutes too early to check-in – we’re staying in the Flat above the Museum shop. It’s situated just a few yards from the Iron Bridge itself which used to be a toll-bridge. Two shillings for a cart and up to six horses. A ha’penny for pedestrians. No prices for a Ford Mondeo! 🙂
We took a short walk down the hill and stopped off at ‘Truffles’ for a well-earned pit-stop – Earl Grey tea, hot chocolate and a couple of slices of cake!
We’re eating in, having stocked up on M and S ready meals. We plan to start the Christmas cards tonight – we’ll see as we’re both knackered!!

I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
