Then I met Mr Crafty and we got married and I began to feel very guilty that he was not only my husband but also my chauffeur. So I bit the bullet and started to learn.
With the test looming some practice was in order. We were in Stratford upon Avon for the weekend and so I suggested we took the A roads back home to London and I would do the driving. We found ourselves going through the most picturesque villages imaginable and eventually stumbled upon the market town of Wilmslow which is like something off a chocolate box. And wouldn't you know they were having a Handmade and Vintage fair!! What a very happy stumble!
Please excuse my terrible pictures - I am no pro photographer at the best of times but having done my first stint at 70mph I was a little shaky!
|The market square was packed with lovely stalls selling all manner of delightful items|
|Gorgeous sweet shop - I was sorely tempted by their cake pops!|
|Coffee from a camper van - genius!|
|Vintage ice cream van serving the most delicious rum and raisin ice cream!|
And the end of the story? I passed my driving test at my first attempt two days ago so taking the scenic route delivered in more ways than one!
