We parked on the very top floor of the car park, T's request, and once out of the car spotted this fairground ride towering above the shops.
Never, ever, ever would you get me in something like that. It certainly was a crowd stopper though. Lots of people stood and stared just as we did at those who had to sit so high up, waiting patiently at the top whilst others first got on and then off again at the end.
S chose something a little more sedate.
We wandered along the market stalls
and I bought a set of Chinese lanters which we hung up around the dining room later on in the afternoon as we prepared our Chinese meal. This didn't involve any food preparation as such. More along the lines of just opening of plastic containers!
Unfortunately we were too late into town to watch the traditional Lion and Dragon dance held in the Civic Centre car park but we did encounter them as they paraded through the town.
Back home we baked 4 heart shaped cakes which T and S then iced and decorated with grated white chocolate.
One of the market stalls was run by a lovely lady who had made all the jewellery she was selling.Lots of REALLY LOVELY things and it was all very reasonably priced. I could have bought most of the items she was selling. Anyway in the end all I bought was a necklace for a friend of mine as part of her birthday present. As we walked away T asked if he could borrow some money from me, about £5 should do it, as he had seen something he would like to buy for a friend and for his Dad.
Did he buy something for them?
No he didn't. He went back and bought me the 2 things I had said I really liked.
As a Valentine's gift.
Did I cry?
What do you think?
