It was lovely to see him again, even though we are due to collect him next week for his month's "holiday" for Easter we wanted to go down to take cards and gifts (money! what else? for an impoverished student?) see him and take him out for a meal. My brother came along too for the ride as we had a spare seat in our car.
I took along my stripe scarf to knit while travelling down.
During the walk around the seaside my brother "joked" about the chances of my finding or coming across a "wool shop". He ought have known better! I promise I had nothing to do with it! entirely coincidental! In fact it was my BROTHER'S free choice as to which direction we walked .. smack into first a large fabric shop! and just around the corner a "wool" shop! hurrah! I couldn't resist a couple of photographs to add to my blog!!
