Sally's parents bought me dinner at the pub last night and Hazel gave me some fun little gifts. I felt right spazzy that I'd forgotten the gifts I brought from them on Sally's bookshelf. I'll send them by post later this week. Sally's mum told me all about the canal system and the canal boats in Braunton. Her dad, who was a teacher and is now still works in the schools and I had some lovely conversations about schools and the difference between ours and theirs (not too much really). Hazel let my play with her Dr. Who toys while Sally rolled her eyes at us. :P
Sally & her adorable friend Adele took me to an AMERICAN themed resturant today for lunch. It was called Frankie and Benny's. I went out of my way to eat the least American item on the menu (sausage and mash). They did a good job of making it seem American though, lots of tradtional American foods, and the decor was much like an American resturant like Chili's... but alas no Dr. Pepper. Sal has 2 bottles of it here for me. :) I tried smoky bacon crisps (potato chips) just now...OMG. I think I have to buy another suitcase just to bring home packets of crisps. This is Amy's fault. :P During lunch Adele asks 'so is anyone going on holiday soon?' It was quite funny as I AM on holiday now. She's quite funny. We galavanted about the countryside scoping out the church where Princess Di is really buried... and shopping!

Me, enjoying hot chocolate at Costa Coffee (just for you Cari!!)
me & Hazel on the site of the medieval ruins of a town where everyone died of the plauge. How morbid!!
It uploaded the wrong photos...grrr. Oh well. Here's the yummy knight again.
The Spencer estate -Althrop House- where Princess Diana grew up and where everyone thinks she's buried on an island... but she's not. She's actually in an old church up the road. I do have photos of that church, but don't feel like uploading anymore at the moment.
