Our passport for the Ironbridge museums meant that we didn’t have to wait for the queue at entrance as we could go through like a fast track go. The first bit is an introduction video – with so many people coming through the video had started before we got in so it was silly staying for the beginning when we’d already seen the end.
We started our day at the bank. The exchange rate is set at Blists Hill I think it worked out that we got 40 new pence to a Victorian old pence. I thought i had just about got the hang of it until we got to one of the little shops and I got all in a muddle!
After Blists Hill we popped into Telford to go to the supermarket as we needed a tray for the pasta bake that I was making for dinner. Chris and I went for a walk around the shopping centre. I bought a new handbag as the popper on my Fatface one that I’ve been using for two weeks ish to make sure that I don’t carry too much. I bought a black cross body one with lots of pockets and hopefully it should be okay to work at least until we get home if not longer. Give it 11 weeks and my handbag will resemble a changing bag so for now it’ll work for me I’m sure.
Following dinner back at the hostel, Chris and I played Jenga and I won which was insane. Then we played Scrabble. I was winning for nearly the whole game until about 5 turns from the end then Chris over took and left me for dust! Our Sidekick then somehow ended up playing Chris at Scrabble. I ended up being the dictionary to assist him. I think we got it to about 24 points between them which when I was closer to 30 behind Chris clearly Our Sidekick and I are a good team.
