The town is tiny, so it wouldn't have been so bad if the shops I wanted to visit hadn't been as far away from each other as it is possible to be. Just as well I am reasonably fleet of foot, for an oldie.

As I was making my way to the Health Food Co-op I saw two very smartly dressed little girls with their parents, they were just leaving the market place. Something clicked in my brain and before I'd reached my destination I had the answer... I remembered where I'd seen these twins and their mother. The mother writes the Remembering the Old Ways blog - which is filled with beautifully evocative photographs.
The twins were dressed in beautiful matching winter coats and their mother wore a lovely vintage jacket and skirt.

As I walked back to the other end of the town I fell to thinking about how beautifully turned out the girls were. I know that my own children would have fought against being dressed like that, my grandchildren would definitely rebel. They like to choose their own clothing each day.
Thank goodness for school uniforms. No arguments on school days!
I didn't have time to take photographs yesterday. These photographs of Louth are some I used in one of my previous blogs, years before I began 'Parsonage Cottage'.
Nothing much changes in Louth. Shops may relocate, others go out of business, new ones come in.
The market is held on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with a Farmers Market on the 4th Wednesday of the month, Food Market on 2nd Friday of the month, and Craft Markets 3rd Saturday of the month through the summer. Then, of course, there is the cattle market and that is held once a week 'up the hill'.
Truly a market town.
These are just a couple of the old terraced houses. Lovely, characterful places.
Purchases made, I was back at the car with ten minutes to spare.
We were soon heading home.
