My trip to Newmarket
|Today is the 40 year anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which decriminalised male homosexuality (at least, in strict privacy, between no more than two people, over the age of 21). I haven't seen anything about this anywhere, so I thought I would mention this here.|
In other news, my Mum and I went on an adventure to Newmarket. This was great as it was the first time I'd been out of the house in almost a month and it just happened to be one of the best days of weather in weeks as well.
Newmarket is a curious town full of horses and the rather small people who ride them. We had lunch at the National Horseracing Museum (I admit we didn't really look at the museum as... well, frankly, because it was all about horseracing). The restaurant there was nice though; we sat in the garden next to a passionflower bush and it was very pleasant.
In the shops I bought a garlic press and some shoes. I was extraordinarily lucky; I don't much like shoe shopping as I struggle to find shoes I both like and can afford. We went into the Scope charity shop to dump some old clothes on them and there they were. No size label, but I slipped them on my feet and they were a perfect fit. And they had a purse to match. £3.50 for the shoes, £2 for the purse. Are they not rather lovely?
I'm now going to have a rest and tomorrow I will hopefully continue rabbitting on about marriage (you can't wait, I know).
