Today we went to Derby to do a dummy run to the train station, and see how long it takes to walk. We keep being told how far things are, but we have yet to notice. We are either getting faster at walking or others are not used to walking. We managed the walk from bus to train station in 12mins.
We can leave for the 10.25 bus next Tuesday when we venture to Biggin Hill.
We had a browse round the huge array of shops (think there are more shops in Derby than there are in Cornwall).
Had lunch in Patisserie Valerie (our new favourite place as coffee is always lovely and hot).
Had to take a picture of this Santa Grotto
Came back before rain started.
