Week Twenty


Last Wednesday the BBC Antiques Roadshow rolled into town!


It was a very wet day, and we went down at about 9 am to West Somerset Steam Railway Station and there was long queue with a variety of bags, and some things not in bags.........


I took my teddy bear and dolls.  I just missed seeing Hilary Kaye.  The gentleman I saw was informative of my bear, which is a Petz Bear which although rare not worth much.  Been loved too much!  His fur is rough and his stuffing is escaping and his growler doesn't growl anymore, but he is my bear!  Petz only lasted a few years and there isn't much written about them.  The stuffing is wood wool.

Not much about the dolls.

Weeks Eighteen and Nineteen - part - 1 of part four


Last Wednesday we had the best day out ever!  We were all up and out by 5.45am and in the car to be dropped off at a 24hr hour Asda store at 6.30am for breakfast.  Only trouble was breakfasts were not being served till 8am, so we a look round the the store and was restrained about buying!  Unless you count snacks.  After we had a breakfast we booked a taxi and was taken to........

  
......a recycled airfield


To a stage with the letter "J"


and to a stage with the letter "K"


We went to see
Harry Potter

Just to say this post is rather photo heavy so I have decided to split it up over a few days.


After queuing for about fifteen minutes we went in to a room where everyone was given and explanation if what was going to happen, and watching a slide-show of different Harry Potter posters from around the world.  We the sat in the cinema and watched a little film.  The screen then rose up to reveal a large wooden door.  After a few more words the doors were opened.
