As ever we took full advantage of the free vintage buses which always replace the usual public buses on the first day of a new year in our little city.
It is always fun to travel on the old buses, although sadly it is now much more appealing to the younger members of our family. How frightening is it when "vintage buses" are the ones you remember as a child and you read notices inside which have no meaning to your children ("Does that include ipods?")
Adverts painted on the side of buses seem laughable now, if only a house was that cheap!
We departed in the shadow of King Alfred
and joined the vintage bus crowds in front of the Guildhall before enjoying a little Christmas voucher spend in town. Such a lovely way to spend the first day of a new year; being together and not spending any money.
Here's to Twenty Twelve and many more happy moments to enjoy and share!
