Great Budworth but a reasonable facsimile. Lovely exhibition there yesterday by our friend and neighbour Beth Barlow who was showing assemblages, I suppose you could call them, mixed media pieces in boxes mounted upon various church furniture including the bier ? that the coffin is carried on from church to grave side. A nice pub lunch beforehand in the George and Dragon across the road. Full to bursting we had to eat a bit slab of coffee and walnut cake in the church provided by the friendly folk who came along to host the event and set up a craft stall and one with cheese and wine for anybody who wanted it. Phew! It was cheese and crackers for tea that night after all that! Beth gave a very interesting talk with questions from the Curate who organised the event and is keen to get more visual artists to use the space. It's a lovely old church and sadly I neglected to take my camera along so I could show you the stained glass windows, the ancient chests, the mouldy pews, the organ pipes, gargoyles, carvings etc. The weather chaos inflicted upon most of the country has hardly touched Cheshire though it has been freezing and not very pleasant. At least we haven't had to dig ourselves out of snow drifts!

Buddy Holly and Crickets ( and Clicks ) for £2 which seemed like a bargain - lots of songs I've never heard of as well as the hits. Hazel got a few bits and bobs including an ostrich egg ( with free goose egg ) for a quid, sewing sets, needles, forks, wrapping paper etc. Afterwards we went to Marbury garden centre to get some rosemary and hanging plants for the hanging basket which looks a bit sad at the moment. Then to Granma and Audrey's to keep at arms length as they have the lurgi. Collected a pile of logs from the tree they had cut down in the front garden.
