little trips

Friday we decided not to go anywhere, since Ella had a high fever and was feeling puny.

Saturday we went to Bury St Edmunds, to the market and Cathedral and parish church and Abbey gardens. It was actually a nice relaxing day because we didn't have to be anywhere later. We split up for lunch: Mom and Dad went to a tea room and had tea, sandwiches, and crumpets. Turns out a crumpet is like an "English muffin" (as we call them in the states). The rest of us went to McDonald's. We bought lots of good cheap fruit at the market.
Afterwards we drove through a couple of pretty villages, and back to Mildenhall for Chinese takeaway for dinner. Then everyone had a shower, and we went to bed.

Sunday we went to church for the first time in a long while. We passed on the fundraiser "tacos" (the 'a' pronounced like apple) that smelled like curry, and got Popeyes for lunch. Then we went to Ely to the cathedral there, and the stained glass museum upstairs. We had leftovers for supper.

Now it's about time to get ready to go to the airport. I'll miss my babies, but I don't feel at all bad about leaving. Yet. :-D

Thanks for the "rest of the story." You'll have another to tell when you get back. jc
