My Week in Review to the 29th April

I'm linking this post up with The Sunday Post at The Caffeinated Reviewer.

A fairly brief Week In Review today as we are mostly packing our car (read that as cramming every available corner!) in preparation for renewed wanderings tomorrow. Yay! The potential panic from last week's post has been averted. We managed to get the trailer tent tyres replaced thanks to the folks at MandM Tyres in Marsh Barton. Their while-you-wait service did involve a bit of a wait as we arrived at a busy time. We were directed to a nearby cafe which, unfortunately wasn't due to reopen until tomorrow. However the woman there preparing for their Big Reopen was happy to make us each a cup of good coffee On The House and even brought us out biscuits. How amazing was that? If you find yourself at a loose end in Marsh Barton, be sure to support the Snack Station on Clapperbrook Lane. Admittedly, you probably won't get a free drink, but they are Very Nice People!

Also VNPs are our friends Josie and Jim Tipler who, together, are folk duo Milton Hide. Their brand new EP, Little Fish, was launched in Sussex yesterday and I was lucky enough to be offered a review copy. Great harmonies and I love Josie's lyrics! Take a listen to this YouTube of Home Is Where Your Heart is and visit the Milton Hide Facebook page to find your nearest gig.

  1. I always find it so awesome when people step up like the woman in The Snack Station did for you! It's nice to be reminded that people are in general good.

    1. You're right! I felt a bit guilty that we probably won't have a reason to go back that way for quite a while, but I hope the new cafe does well. In my book, they deserve too :-)
