This cow was ambling along - he did own the road and was holding up all the traffic. If you've never been to the New Forest, ponies, cows and sheep regularly roam through the villages and roads.On the way home I spied two antique shops and had to stop and browse. I didn't come away empty handed!
After all those wet Sunday mornings it was great to go car booting in the sunshine. I have never seen so many stalls at our local one and managed to find some nice things so some of these along with my New Forest purchases are now on my website.My best find was a souvenir cup of St Enedoc church near Padstow (where John Betjeman is buried) which I visited with my mother and daughter recently at Easter. I don't know how to link to a previous post (perhaps someone could let me know) so also here is the photo I took of it then. My mum will love this cup.
I must just mention that is my daughter's 23rd birthday today. It is the first one that we have spent apart as she is on holiday in Budapest. I'm really missing her but at 9.30 pm I'll toast a glass of bubbly to her and remember this moment all those years ago.
