Enjoying Topsham

This last week has been half-term, which means that my friend Christine has been off work. Pre-Christmas we had arranged to meet and do something (especially as it's her birthday today), however as I really am not coping well at present (yes, I have just been signed off for another 2 weeks), she came up on the bus yesterday. We had lunch here (she brought pasties with her), and then we went on the bus to a local town, which is now part of the city. So a stroll round (and yes, the weather was kind), and then a cuppa and cake, and so back home. Am extra tired today, but otherwise I am so, so glad we did it. (And I bought another jigsaw from a charity shop)

For a smallish town, that's a lot of men to die in WWI
