Thursday 30 October

Started off a bit grey and never got any better. While taking the dogs out Andrew came up and moved some cows into the field nearest the gated field on his side. Bye Bye girls. Decided to go to Chesterfield and by time done usual chores it was 11.30 before we set off. When we got to Chesterfield found that there was a continental market as well as the usual Thursday flea market. It was a bit drizzly and still felt cold. Chris has been charged with getting a trophy for the Bakewell Photographic Society and there is a stall in he market hall that specialises in them. Had lunch at M&S and went to Wilkinsons before heading back. Stopped at Dunelm and Morrisons and Chris popped into an electrical wholesalers to pick up some bits. Came back via Holymoorside and Beeley as we suspected the roadworks in Baslow would be causing havoc. After tidying up sorted out emails and phone calls and had dinner before phoning sister to check on dad who will still be in hospital for a few more days as he regains strength. Then sat down to watch Silent Witness before retiring.
