Then we got up on Saturday and it wasn't that bad. So we went to Liverpool to see the final weekend of Art Turning Left, well worth the visit, so we were exceptionally glad we didn't allow ourselves to be put off. The level of the river was very high, very grey and very wobbly, gorgeous. Of the many great things in the exhibition was a participation section where we were invited to stitch anything we liked onto a length of golden fabric, so I did!

We had some financial success at the Tate too, our Art Pass meant paid half price to get in to the exhibition, saving £4 each. Dan had also read about a parking deal so we saved £3 on parking by using the Liverpool One car park and just asking for a voucher when we arrived at the gallery. We also asked in the shop if we received a discount with an Art Pass, the guy didn't know but said "let's give it a go" and there we were, 10% off! We should have tried it in the cafe too, didn't think of that, we did enjoy a delicious lentil hotpot there, well worth a visit.
Sunday morning was gorgeous and Dan decided he wanted to go to Ambleside, so we did. We had a poke round the shops and enjoyed the fresh air. In one of the shops I found £5 on the floor, I told the manager who replied "lucky you". I felt a bit weird about it so when Dan suggested giving it to charity she said that they had a charity box. So that's what we did, shoved it into the mountain rescue box. I know it would have boosted the savings to keep it, and I probably would have done had I found it in the street but I didn't, so I didn't.
