Another grey day but a cheery visit to Wimpole Hall

We had some shopping to do to start the day... Pete had a first optician visit - lucky he's got away with it for so long.... :)... and now soon to be, occasionally, bespectacled...the glasses should be ready soon, and I feel a camera moment coming on at that time :D

New spectacle frames chosen, we headed off for Wimpole Hall... at least the house is open so we could visit in the dry if the threatened rain occurred.

On our way into the cafe, this lady was weaving wool... we'd also seen our first lambs out in the field on our way in.  About 9 of them... couldn't have been more than a very few days old.

Stopping for a cuppa, we felt peckish... so shared a slice of Lemon Drizzle Cake (excellent)!! and Victoria sponge (below)... it's know as a 'cake' diet :D

A very furry resident came to greet us and wandered off again, completely disinterested in us!

Just an arty shot (cropped from the one above!)

And finally home... getting much colder today and snow is forecast over the next couple of days with the temperature plummeting again... all those Spring flowers and lambs!!
