Visiting Mum - Saturday

[Saturday 17th July]
Spent the day with Mum in the East Midlands.
Started off in the morning with a visit to Ashby, and were lucky enough to catch the Farmer's Market there. They have a pretty good mushroom stall there, where I availed myself of some Scottish girolles, and I also bought a keg of Norbury's Worcester Cider.
On the way back from there we stopped off at Breedon-on-the-Hill. I must have driven past it hundreds of times, but don't think I've ever actually been in before. It's quite impressive - they have some Saxon stone carvings in there of weird and wonderful mythical creatures which are over a thousand years old.
Had lunch back at the house, followed by a wander round the village in the afternoon.
In the evening we went for dinner at a Chinese restaurant called Golden Dragon, which had a surprisingly good vegetarian menu, considering it's sort of in the middle of nowhere (near a big junction on the A50).
