Having spent most of Thursday morning in tears over work-related issues, I forced myself to take a complete break this weekend. Mark and I pottered over to Startford on Avon yesterday. We found several great 'Antique/Junk' shops where I found a lovely Spode plate for a bargain price. We also spent ages in a fabulous vintage accessory shop that was tucked away in a side street.
Today we did the food shop then organised ourselves to do a completely new walk in the area. This involved a couple of miles of the Wychavon Way, then a spell of canal-side walking before returning to Droitwich via some lovely quiet lanes.
Here are some of the canal boats moored at Hanbury Warf (on the Birmingham to Worcester Canal)
We even found a sheltered spot to eat our picnic. These benches are on the junction of the Droitwich and Birmingham/Worcester canals. In the summer it's really busy but today it was really peaceful..
I couldn't resist this view of the rather sodden Worcestershire countryside...
Tomorrow morning I'm going to have a meeting with our Deputy Head and I hope that some of the things that have been making life difficult at school will be mentioned - if not resolved.
Fingers crossed!!!! I hope that you all have a good week.
