On yer bike!! ;-)

I am here, having a very nice cup of coffee before taking a deep breath and walking up the hill!

Or should I say cycling.

This is Fat Lemons Cafe and you can't miss it if you are down in Ticklemore Street,Totnes.

It's so yellow!
But then so was the day!
I do believe that Devon has missed out Spring.. but sprung right into summer!

Mind you there was a little bit of purple thrown in for good contrast!
A reminder that it really is spring.

It appears that Fat Lemons is under new ownership since I last visited and very friendly people they are too!

But I must away!

I have a date with the market!
And naturally I find myself here...I could get to this special place with my eyes shut!!
But I'd be a bit daft keeping them shut...wouldn't I?!
Ones eyes need to be sooooo wide open upon arrival!

And of course the stall is alive happy and jolly!
(Just like the owner!)

Here's your eye candy, girls!

Thank you Amanda!

Yes, I made a small purchase...but I will keep you guessing on that one...because...
Tis time for a bit of...

This 'n That!

Except ...oh dear is that the bell for my lessons ?

You are going to have to wait for part two of the Totnes Experience!

It's greedy to have too much of a good thing all in one go!

Have a great weekend!

What a wonderful morning for Fat Lemons and the market ... I would've been going there myself this morning (nothing like Totnes market in the sunshine, followed by coffee at the Waterside Bistro or Fat Lemons) but I have ear problems and it is making me feel very tired and I just couldn't face going out today. But there will be more sunny Fridays before summer's out ... well, I hope ...

Looks a very colourful day out.

Love the old shop bike - they always remind me of Open All Hours!

Hi there, It was a lovely surprise to see you two today. Thanks for the virtual visit to Amanda's stall. We were (unusually) quite early visitors to the market today and so I missed those folf who were still setting up.

Hi Sal,

I always love to hear from you, so nice to pop over and find the happiest yellow bicycle ever!
I haven't discovered this lemony haven yet, maybe I will take the Magpie there when I come to your parts in May? Hmm, now there's an idea...

this is my patch said...

I love yellow. I'd love a visit to Fat Lemon's Cafe. It's a great idea to do everything yellow. I'm surprised you didn't have a lemonade Sal! x
