Newark

On Saturday a friend and I went off to Newark, Nottinghamshire.  It is getting on for an hour away but quite an easy drive – apart from the roadworks which have become a permanent feature of the A46.  If you like cones do come visit!

First stop was the lovely wine shop that is Ann et Vin.  I had some loan glasses to return but needless to say picked up half a dozen bottles whilst I was there.  We also had coffee and delicious apple cake too.

One of the wines I picked up is a Valentine present for my other half.  The label is so pretty – you can see what it is like here – isn’t it pretty.  The bottle I bought is actually rose and the hearts are pink and shiny.  I love the heart on the top.

I love the packaging of this wine - ideal for someone you love!

Wine purchased we had a mooch round the town.  I love the little signs that are in so many shops these days and added two to my collection.

Shopping!

There is an Oxfam bookshop in Newark and I picked up Nigella Express for £2.99. I have used it today to make sweet potato and butternut squash soup – more of that to come.

By the way, the lovely little cat sign is from Rose and Peck, which is in The Arcade, a beautiful proper old arcade too!

If you fancy a visit to Newark do stay at the lovely Compton House – Lisa will make you feel right at home!

Snow

The first snow came on Monday, 14 January.

Most of it was still around when we got a second heavy fall during the night of Friday, 25 January. It was thick on the ground on Saturday but rain during the night meant that by Sunday it had virtually all gone. Now we are left with sodden ground and still can’t garden and the poor goats could do with wellies!
