I love Newark, I spend most of my time looking up at the architecture, not a good idea with the cobbled streets, and my lack of balancing skills!
There was a food festival on when we were there, lots of people milling about and a lovely atmosphere. We went for a walk down by the river stopping for coffee and cake, of course!
Newark Castle, I used to love visiting when I was little, it always seemed so spooky!
This is Butterworth Market, it's a lovely building with a mixture of shops.
On the Market I met Laura, who makes the most lovely crafts......
And we went into a Retro shop.....
Vintage Vixen, it was mainly full of vintage clothes but there were a few household items too.....
Little Owls Nest was full of up cycled and new crafty goodies....
We had a Grand Day Out, just laughing and enjoying our time together. Big Sis has worked long and hard looking after adults with learning disabilities, and she is sooooo loving her retirement! Her shifts had meant we didn't see each other as much as we would have liked.
If our Dad would have still been with us, he would have been 89yrs old on our Sisters Day! We always remember his birthday, and it was good to be together, he would have loved that!
My Sisters have been a fantastic support to me over the last few years. I'm their Little Sis, we are all different, with our own quirky ways, but we love each other dearly. Together we seem to make a whole!
Hope, if you have a Sister,you to have Sister Days too!

p.s. Big Sis had left home by the time I came along, not sure if it was the prospect of sharing a room with a crying baby, and Posh Sis and I fought like 'cat and dog' when we're kids! if your children squabble, there is hope!
p.p.s. Sorry, I've run out of time, Posh Sis has taken the girls out in her posh car and they are due back anytime now! Will let you know about craft fair on Wednesday! :)
