Tomorrow, Marc comes to stay with me for just over a week, I will collect him from Wolverhampton Station, prompt, when he arrives on the 12.37 train…… and from there on our adventure will begin …….. I don’t know who is the more excited …… me and Marc or The Monkeys! I have scrubbed the house like there is no tomorrow to meet with the de rigueur standards of Notting Hill ……. after finding me on my hands and knees cleaning the utility floor Lucy remarked that it was if the Queen was coming, to which I had to reply “But ”He” is!!!!”
I have planned a very full and robust “Wolverhampton Staycation” for us, although nothing is written in stone, we can change to suit our whim and mood ….. however we will start off on Friday with a trip to…… wait for it ….. Hobby Craft, Home Bargains and BM Bargains, followed by a buffet lunch at Cosmo at Bentley Bridge! LOL, I know how to give a guy a good time, but for all of central London and it’s pleasures ……it does not have such delights …… (well, not without travelling out a fair way). So Dianne will probably hear our girlie squeals in Florida! Hopefully, we will find a few bargains and treasures that we will be able to share and create a few projects with during Marc’s stay, that I can then post.
Other trips on the horizon are to Bridgenorth and Ironbridge, AND a nights stay in Shrewsbury ….. not only for it’s historical interests BUT for the QVC outlet shop where we plan to purchase a matching fleece wolf jacket each to cement our friendship even further ………
However, no matter how heady our days may seem, all Marc has specifically requested is to travel on the Banga bus, but I have warned him that it could get bumpy and he may have to pay an all be it discounted fare as his bus pass may not actually cover “village” buses!!!!!
When we are taking things a little more gently, there are also the delights of the village to enjoy …. we shall be fine dining at the greasy spoon and the newly opened village “Kitchen” https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Kitchen-bilbrook/450649748374462, as well as The Woodman and Codsall Spice ….. as I said, I know how to treat “my man”! There is a Teddy Bear Hunt for which we are already entered, and one afternoon we are off to paint a plate/mug at the local Codsall Hive http://codsallhive.co.uk/
