It was whilst I was looking for details for our day out last weekend I found something which we could go to this weekend.
We left the car near one of our favourite parks and took a stroll along the river. This was busy with people in kayaks
and when I saw this chap all I could think of was the theme tune to Hawaii Five-0.
When the children we younger we would come to this park and feed the ducks and yesterday we saw a new sign advising other items which are better for them to have.
It's good info to have for a future visit but we weren't at the park to feed the ducks or any of the other birds we saw.
Outside the church was a colourful display by a group of primary school children. It was all about the rights of children. Access to food and clean water, a safe place to play and being able to go to school were all mentioned.
Also outside were these faces cut from plastic bottles which reminded me of boggarts.
The art work on display ranged from paintings and sculpture to stained glass. I liked the way these flowers were displayed entwined around an old metal gate.
We visited this church a 4 years ago on a heritage open day and it was the stained glass windows which caught our attention then. I couldn't get a good photo of them yesterday. This was because of the sun, so I'm not complaining, so I concentrated on some other smaller features.
Back home in the afternoon I spent some time in the kitchen baking Dalek shaped biscuits to go with our
Dalek straws. All of this was in readiness for the start of the new Dr Who series which we all sat down and enjoyed together.
I thought we needed something to go with our biscuits and as it was butterscotch pudding day there really was only one contender. I could have spent longer in the kitchen and made something from scratch but decided on the trashy option instead.
