A little day trip to Shrewsbury...

Long time no speak!!!  This was supposed to be a weekend post - so I apologise in advance, but it's been difficult with the madness of the last few days! I've been off all round the Midlands over the weekend -  the highlight being a visit to Birmingham, leading the singing at the MFY (music for youth) Primary schools proms. The young children were so cute! 

On Saturday, I jumped on the train with Charlotte, for a lovely day, mooching through rails of charity and vintage shops in Shrewsbury! It's such a lovely town and despite being inefficiently dressed for the chilly weather, it was a lovely day...

I managed to find a vintage shop that sold satchels from THE CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL COMPANY (please someone buy me one!). I must have spent a good 10 minutes picking up the variety of satchels on display... this mustard colour was my favourite, as it's a little bit different from the 'typical' satchel.

We went passed a lovely florists in the town - the flowers put me in the mood for spring! I love looking at flowers, but I'm not so good at keeping them alive... any tips, please drop me a comment!!!! 

The highlight of my day, has to be finding 'Mollies Sweet Shop'... basically, it was candy heaven! I spoiled myself with a bag of sweeties from the pick-a-mix, and a slush puppy - which was probably a bit stupid, considering it was -2 outside!

Well, that's all! I'd definitely recommend a day trip to Shrewsbury - there's so much to do, and it's all so cute! I've got lots of posts planned, to catch up with you all over the weekend! I'll make sure I find time to get blogging (I'm having withdrawal symptoms!).

Lots of Love,
