I think I've died and gone to heaven...

Oh my goodness. I don't even know where to start.

Well, I was having this conversation with Mariah, and she was telling me about a fantastic school trip she went on years ago, to a Victorian village where everyone was in period dress. She said she watched someone making horseshoes, and visited a Victorian sweet shop, and even went down a mine!! Well, I presumed it was a coal mine. It sounded amazing!

So I decided to Google "Victorian village museum" and found this site, and now I think I have died and gone to heaven. Not only is everything Jane Austen era, but it's only a flamin' clay mine!! With a tile museum and a china museum!! With workshops and demonstrations!!

And as if I even needed an excuse to go, I saw my counsellor yesterday who told me that I should to go to a class or something, as a one off, to feed my inspiration and creativity!!

Wooohoooo!!!

And at £21.95 for a ticket that lasts twelve months it's a flippin' bargain!!

Now I just need someone to come with me... you wanna come? :)

That's how life works! Get exited about something, make a decision, get more exited about it and suddenly al good stuff connected with it comes to you, isn't life just great sometimes! :-)
sounds absolutely fabulous, but the trip would be a little costly from amsterdam, hehe.
Have fun!

Thank you Kathy and Monique! I wish you could both come too!

I thought about taking my nieces and nephews, but they might get bored while I gaze at the tiles and china all day!
