A cake eating lamb and autumn, but no fireworks.
It doesn't take long to get from Market Drayton to the top of Adderley locks and Simon and Allisons splendid little farm shop.
If you look closely you will notice the battered remains of one of Allisons glorious Victoria Sponges on the ground, the culprit?
The pet lamb which has appeared in several of the tabloids and is now booked to appear on Blue Peter, fame appears to have gone to his head and he has developed a taste for the finer things in life, perhaps a glass of champers next?
The locks looked beautiful with the autumn colours, shame the autumn leaves that had fallen into the cut kept getting wrapped round the prop, I seemed to spend as much time in reverse as in forward, a quick burst of back'ards usually clears them.
Saturday evening provided us with a sunset display
that easily outshone the firework display from Adderley village, sorry, I wasn't quick enough with the camera to get any pictures of the fireworks.
