why I love Blogging

as already reported here, Gina, Dian and I had a little outing on Tuesday. Until I discovered Blogging, I was always a 'Lone Op Shopper'  and tended to only visit the same few shops.  After-blogging, I now have shopping-partners and travel much further afield.

Yesterday was a perfect example, not only did I visit many shops I had not been in before, all 3 of us found one we didn't even know existed! how exciting is that.  Gina has posted details in the previous blog.

I thought I was being pretty restrained in the shopping yesterday, but I did come home with a few more knitting patterns, a book on a Royal Doulton Exhibition (which I visited in 1979), a funky souvenir velvet cushion cover, some more pottery and the most beautiful glass with hand applied raised painting of flowers. 
And, we are planning to do it all over again after Easter, in another different place!
