I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

Shadow Picture

This is my favourite shadow picture. It's of my daughter "Roxy Simmons" and her husband, up in the mountains, on the day that he proposed to her. Sweet huh?

Tomorrow I am taking a day off work to go girlie shopping with Dons. I am so excited - it feels like I'm going to be playing hookey from school - having a day off in the middle of the week like this :o}

We're going to go to Exeter. I hope the weather stays as lovely as it's been for the past few days. Having said that Dons and I always seem to get good weather when we go to Exeter. Hennes here we come - hurrah!

Thanks Dons :o}

No, Roxy, there is no Primark in Exeter yet - something I am rather pleased about because I have been stopped in the street in Exeter to be asked where I got my (Primark)clothes from. If there was a Primark there they'd know only too well! hahaha

I could always take my camera to the Barnstaple branch for you? I don't know if they'd like me taking pics but if I explained what it was for, then maybe they wouldn't mind.

Yes primark is a cool shop. As far as I can tell from the Ipswich shop they have stripes, stripes and yet more stripes this season. Oh, yes and a few polka dots! More up to date than Top Shop!

As for shadow pictures, and that one being your favourite one....just how many shadow pictures have you got GOW?

Happy Easter. I rang up to see that house but they aren't doing viewings until next week....fresh on! So, if it's still available when we get back, which I doubt because it's a bargain (another old woman moving/or moved on), outbuildings, walled gardens...you know the thing....everything everyone else wants too...

I had no idea that Primark was so cool! I bought Sid a couple of t-shirts there once, yonks ago and have walked past my local branch a zillion times since without going in!
Oooooh... I'm going to have to check it out when I'm all back to normal. :o)

great photo, what a cool idea.

Hope your shopping was good. My parents lived near Exeter for quite a time, lovely city.

I had good shopping with my mum on Thursday, lots of charity shops in Uckfield. Nearly did those in Eastbourne in Friday, also with my mum, but spent most of the time searching for her cos I lost her!

Yes, Primark rocks! Even my very trendy nieces shop there.

B. they hardly ever have it switched on!!!
