#Project365 34/52

This week started with our trip to Bristol – you can read more about it here.

Lots of walking as the Harbourside and the city are not close to each other.  I’m so glad National Express let us get on an earlier coach home, I don’t think I could have walked much further, the soles of feet and calves were aching badly.
While we were having a rest a woman sat near by noticed me rubbing my feet and suggested getting some gel insoles from Primark. We headed off there, the insoles were £2.50 but new daps and canvas slip-ons were only £3 or £4. I couldn’t decide which colour to get, navy, white or burgundy..plus a pair of red daps..mmm decisions..oh what the hell chuck them all in the basket.. Four pairs of comfy everyday shoes for under £20. They’ll be great for our holiday and light to pack.

We bought a potty for Ash to use at our house but we’ve not seen him this week. His other Nanna and Grandad had him this weekend. Hubby’s night shifts run into the weekend and the last thing he wants is a two and half-year old shouting and banging while trying to sleep!!

TRAVEL: Bristol

In September last year I won an overnight stay and River trip in Bristol via Gold Radio, it also included National Express coach travel.  The River trips are seasonal so I opted to wait until the new season this year.
I contacted the PR company dealing with the prize in April and arranged for the trip to be on 19th August.

I also won Sunday Lunch with wine with the Hotel’s Walters Restaurant via Twitter. I contacted them and asked if we could dine during our stay instead and they were happy to oblige and offered us the 3 course set menu with wine – 2 prizes rolled into one. Continue reading
