Renovation project - Waxing, Wine and Wilmslow Artisan Market
Last night was lovely we babysat for the first time, and realised I am not very good at it, apparently babies sometimes make a noise in their sleep and this doesn’t mean they need getting up and feeding, this will be handy to know for next time.
I catch up on the blog this morning and baby poppy decides to help, it’s so nice she sat on my knee and seemed to watch what I was doing, though cutting and pasting is harder when you only have one hand.
We went for a trip to the artisan market in Wilmslow, http://www.theartisanmarket.co.uk/ this is an amazing market in a small Cheshire town and if you ever get to visit the UK I would highly recommend it, there are many beautiful villages in this area and a lot of big name over paid Manchester football players live around the area, you can sit at a pavement cafe and people watch for hours.
The stalls at the market were wonderful and we got chatting to a couple who owned a pie stall, called Great North Pie Company http://greatnorthpie.co/about so if you did look us up, hello your pies were amazing!!!!!
You may wonder how a pie can be amazing but when you consider a pie with a title such as Short Rib of Beef, Potato & White Onion Cream you begin to understand what we mean.
The other amazing pie stall was Lane Ends Farm, http://www.laneendsfarmshop.com/ we also bought one of these and I have never seen so much beef in a steak and ale pie, I’m sure there must’ve been half a cow in this pie!
There were other stalls that had a selection of handmade food and goods and I think I could’ve spent a small fortune on the nick knacks (had we had a small fortune to spend and a car big enough to carry everything!).
In the centre of the market there was a live band and some amazing food stalls (yes food did play a big part of the day!)
the queues were quite long so this helped the decision on what to eat, the stall with the smallest queue, this was a bratwurst, OMG it was amazing as you can see!
The couple of hours spent here was really nice and it will definitely become a regular feature on our trips back to the UK.
The afternoon was spent at the beauticians, I have still not trusted my French enough to find one in Huelgoat, so my visit to Prestige beauty in Reddish is always looked forward too, and I was able to get an appointment with the fabulous Bobby Jo.
The evening is to be spent with friends so lots of wine, more food and good company round off a perfect day
