I intended to post a new blog last week, but an unexpected stay in Hospital has thrown all my planning! However, we did manage to get to Leek Flea Market on Saturday.

It was also a Farmers' Market, though it seemed to be all meat, sausages, eggs and things like that. I don't think I would have fancied the meat here, which was is the full sun. (Not that the sun was actually very warm, and there was a very cold wind!)

There was the stall with the usual eclectic array of stuff....

.....but the Baby walker, or whatever it was, looked very uncomfortable for the poor baby! Someone said it was french, which could have accounted for it!!

There was a doll and a teddy - I had a doll just like that when I was a small child.

It was so cold there I had to buy a scarf from Oxfam! I tried to take this photo of me looking in a mirror that was on one of the stalls. I'm wearing the scarf, and was very glad I bought it!

And lastly it was so cold and I was very tired, I took shelter in my favourite cafe to wait for Mr.G who is far hardier than I am! And yes, I did have a piece of the cakes there, plus a good hot cup of coffee!

I think the dessert and coffee might have been the best part of the trip. We haven't had any cold weather yet, and yesterday it was 77* and sunny. I am glad we are finished with the 90* days we had so many of over the spring and summer, but I am not ready for cold yet!!

That baby walker looks very uncomfortable.

I am sorry to hear of your hospital stay - or was it Mr. G?

I love that mirror. And I'm sorry to hear about the hospital stay - but I guess you're all well and back now, right?

So sorry to hear about the hospital stay. I hope you are feeling back to good health. In the picture of you with the mirror I see your poor ears are cold! Where are your earmuffs? Glad you bought the scarf.

On another tack, it was a beautiful mirror and so good to see you in it, out and about. Glad you had an outing before the rainy season begins in earnest.

Take care.

I hope that the hosptial stay was not for anything serious.

What an interesting place the flea market is!

I hope you're okay!

That sounds like the best part--the cake and coffee at the end.
