Remember that parking restrictions can catch out the unwary - though with a little care there is plenty free parking -   you can read more here : http://www.alpinegardensociety.net/stoppress/Northumberland+AGSSRGC+Show+Hexham+this+Saturday/201/

Sadly it is only an hour earlier than I get up on weekdays. Like to be early to work so I can achieve something before the distractions start arriving.

We just got home after a lovely day in Hexham and we are having a cuppa and a hot cross bun before I go out and water the many new purchases then make my driver her well earned tea!
