Crazy Mom Tats and CHATS!!!

Crazy Mom couldn't have chosen a BETTER day to come to Stratford. The sun shone all day and the town wasn't too crowded either. 

Her Majesty the Queen picked her up from Leamington Spa train station along with me acting as the chauffeur.

Now, I hear you ask - HMQ?  Yes, HMQ sitting on the dashboard of the car.  Must explain that this is a recent 'jiggly' that a friend round the corner gave me (Joanie - they've arrived in England now and I'll be looking for the corgi too).  Crazy Mom (Sandra) also gave me a new jiggly For my 'jiggly' addiction (see link). which is the same design as the one Joanie sent me a while back but Sandra's has got a pink dress!!!! They are the most energetic of the jiggly family on my windows!!! Oh, she also gave me a TON of beads AND a present which I sent back to Atlanta with her!!!!  More about that will be revealed at Tat Days!!!!  We are plotting a wicked plot, the pair of us!!!

First stop we made was for an enormous cup of tea chez Eborall and then we set off for the town!!!

We 'did' Shakespeare's Birthplace (I'd not visited that for many, many years) which is a really interesting building. Then we grabbed lunch in a place nearby and finally got to the Holy Trinity Church where Shakespeare is buried along with his family.  

We ended up back home in the garden for another chat with 'you know who' and Tilly who was very, very gracious and allowed Sandra to 'actually' stroke her!!! She's a timid cat.

Sandra's GOT to come back soon as we didn't 'do' the theatre or that area of the town.  So, Sandra's bosses, you NEED to send her to England again to work!!!!

Lovely pictures - could those possibly be tulips in your garden? - how wonderful.

Jane Eborall said...

It was pretty last minute, Pigmini, but would LOVE you to come next time. I know you could usually do 'last minute' too!!!

Jane Eborall said...

Not my garden, Maureen. Wish it was!!! That photo was taken outside Hall's Croft which is one of the Shakespeare Trust properties. They really, really look after their gardens beautifully.

Pigmini said...

Looking forward to it!!

Jane McLellan said...

How wonderful to meet up like that!

Crazy Mom! said...

We had a GRAND time!

Jane is the best guide, and so much fun (she paid me to say that)! The weather couldn't have been better, and everything was in glorious bloom.

Give my best to you-know-who and a pet to Tilly! See you later in the year!

So envious of your lovely visit! Oh to be a fly on the wall betwixt two scheming tatters....hee, hee. Glad you had a great day for an even greater visit.

It's so amazing that travel is now part of her new job - and she had a personal tour guide, too! Quite a reunion after your last trip across the Pond, with another coming up!
