I’m quite excited about this weekend, Dan’s coming to see me in Bedford again. He comes tomorrow (Friday) til Sunday, and because I’ve been paid I need to go and pay the Council tax and various other quick shopping trips that get sorted once you’ve been paid.
I want to show him the Embankment, and the shopping area, and the markets and all sorts of things. For all that I intend to move away from Bedford I do quite like the place.
Bedford is a historic place, all sorts of stories are woven into the place. You can find the ancient town walls, see the house that John Bunyan lived in, see the site of the old jail, walk along the old railway. There’s the country park, where you can watch people rowing, windsurfing, sailing or fishing. There’s the big park in the middle of town too, right by the leisure centre. That’s a good place to just sit when it’s sunny.
It’s beside a fast road from Cambridge to Oxford, which also links it to Milton Keynes. Additionally the train station is on the main line to London and North to Nottingham and beyond. It’s quite the little hub really!
Now I just have to think of where I can take him and things we can do in town. Shouldn’t be hard really. I’ve lived here several years now, and what I don’t know I can find out about this weekend.
