Meetup in Salisbury with Davina, Louisa and Sue

Davina ('Dee'), Louisa and Sue are all members of The Angels, as I am, and we arranged to meet from 10:00am in Salisbury. We had coffee, shopped, enjoyed a pub lunch after Sue had to go to work, and after Dee had to go, Louisa and I looked around the Cathedral. It all went so well. What lovely people!


  1. Favourite cathedral in the country :-) Just gorgeous.

    And hey...the city of my birth :-)

  2. I looked at the cathedral from a safe distance when I was at the Common Cold unit. I'd love to o back and see the town properly.

  3. Have to say, Salisbury has an awful lot going for it. But then, so have places like Shaftesbury (where I am about to have a well-filled panini roll and an Americano for lunch). Brrr! It's a very cold day!


  4. Oooo I love Salisbury Cathedral too. I used to have business trips to Salisbury for many years and often wandered around the cathedral on summer evenings.

    There was a fantastic Chinese restaurant nearby, I recall. Ah... memories!

  5. I went there by train on a snowy winter's day many years ago, and wandered around the cathedral. And then saw "Murder in the Cathedral" at the Playhouse. It was my first time in Salisbury, and the cathedral in the snow is an abiding memory. One of those spots of time things, you know...

    There are in our existence spots of time,
    That with distinct pre-eminence retain
    A renovating virtue, whence–depressed
    By false opinion and contentious thought,
    Or aught of heavier or more deadly weight,
    In trivial occupations, and the round
    Of ordinary intercourse–our minds
    Are nourished and invisibly repaired;
    A virtue, by which pleasure is enhanced,
    That penetrates, enables us to mount,
    When high, more high, and lifts us up when fallen.

  6. Sounds like you had a great day! Salisbury Cathredral is one of our great national treasures. I love it.

    Truro cathedral this Christmas with the choir and the beautiful lights and installations was the highlight of my late night shopping.

    happy Christmas Lucy
