Regent Street Motor Show - November 2013

I went up to London today and walked up Regent Street to see the Motor Show including the cars that will take place in the Veteran Car London to Brighton Race that will take place the following day (Sunday 3 November 2013)

There were some modern cars on display too.

Halloween 2013

As I may have said before Halloween is not my favourite time but I made a special effort and made some almond cookies, perfect for Halloween.

Littlecote House weekend 2013

My school friends and I like to meet up for a weekend to catch-up on everyone's news, go out and about and find nice places to stop for a coffee.   We went to Littlecote House this year.  During out weekend we did a trip to Marlborough and Hungerford on the Saturday.  
On the Sunday we found the Littlecote Roman Villa and Orpheus Mosaic and then to the local village pub for lunch.  It poured with rain while we were there and we got absolutely soaked.
