Busking – 1/2 Price today

October 7th, 2011

Rather than go back into the city and spend more money on things that I really don’t need, I decided to stay in Guildford today and accomplish pretty much the same thing.

Mary had teaching this morning, giving me a chance to sit and knit for few hours. I also wandered a few stores and otherwise relaxed. After lunch at Wagamama’s, we wandered through the Guildford Museum. Because of the government’s commitment to history and the arts – the museums are free. I was able to spend time looking at two of my favourite things – needlework and implements –

On the street – A regular (the keyboardist)from Threepenny Bit with a couple of extras were busking. Wonderful, fun foot tapping tunes to make one’s heart glad. I picked up their CD for £5 and tossed my small loose change in the case.

To put a great end on the day after finding a pair of shoes and Clark’s, Mary and I spent the evening doing needle work.
