Trip down Devon

I've already done another trip to Devon before I managed to post about this one a while back now, but the summer's been so good, it seemed rude not to take advantage. I just pottered about with mum, doing the usual - here are the highlights.

A note about these pyjamas - I've had them since I was fourteen years old. The t-shirt started life as part of my regular wardrobe, and only got relegated to the pyjama league many years later. I remember getting the t-shirt as a birthday present (along with a vintage over-dyed navy blue Levis denim jacket) and going shopping with mum to get it, from a vintage shop on Slater Street in Liverpool. I think it must have been one of my first vintage items. Mum had to leave the shop after a while - because of the smell! - it was no John Lewis. So, vintage shops have come a long way since then, and so has this t-shirt. Little did I know that when mum moved from Liverpool to Devon, she packed up this old favourite pair of PJs so that I could sleep in them when I stayed over.
