Wednesday 15 October change of plans day 2

A pleasant day had been forecast but by the time I took the dogs for their walk it was raining. With an early breakfast we were able to make an early get away I had planned a walk on Baslow Edge but by the time we were ready it was still not dry enough to go for a walk. I did not have a ‘Plan B’ as I believed the weather would be fine but in the end and after a cup of coffee I decided on a retail day. So we went first to the McArthurGlen outlet centre at Junction 28 of the M1 where there is the Thornton’s and Cadbury’s outlet shops. My favourites! After lunch at the Thornton’s Cafe we headed down to Ikea at Junction 26 where we hadn’t been for sometime. Bought some bits for the cottages as well as seeing what is ‘in’ at the moment. Came back and cooked a dinner before going to Buxton again. This time we had tickets for The Orchestra, as they are known today, or Electric Light Orchestra as I know them. The Orchestra is made up of some former ELO members together with some ELO Part 11 members. The house was packed and it was a super show. I kept on remembering that the last time I saw them live was 30 years ago at Wembley!
