It actually was but don’t tell anyone I said so!   Here is a photo of tha ‘island’ with tha Abbey at tha top. There are shops an bars an restaurants, as well as hotels, around tha bottom.  The golden statue of St […]

Wibur’s Travels – Choc teddy friends

Exeter on a Sunday was a great idea! Easy parkin (shops don’t open till 11am so nice and quiet), and plenty of space at tha launderette. If only Wally the Wise  Owl would stop flirtin with Audry tha Sat Nav. I’m not jealous (I have Olivia) but it does make her lose concentration an imagine we are in tha middle of a field sometimes. We made it safe an sound anyway an left Mark to do the laundry with his […]
