Wow – what a whirlwind few days! Blog land is keeping me very busy (not what I’d planned for at the beginning of the 6 week school holidays). Thank you to everyone who’s liked my blog and my shark pattern since I published a picture of it back in April, then finally found the time to type… Read More The Mermaid Tail Pattern
I wasn’t going to write anything today – but it’s been such an extraordinary day I can’t resist. I woke up this morning and carried out my usual task of walking the dogs at 6am. Another car was parked where I normally park in the completely empty car park, but I didn’t really think anything… Read More A Parallel Universe?
Just around the corner from where I live, and I kind of do mean just around the corner, I could walk there in maybe 30 minutes, drive there in 10, there is the most amazing field I have ever set eyes on in my life. Every year in June and July, we are very lucky… Read More A very purple field
A bad week for the iMac and Photos behaving themselves. The new camera has been put to good use (it still doesn’t have a name though), but could I get them into my blog easily?

Well as soon as I decided to start taking photos – half… Read More Playing with clay, amusing the kids and making a yarn bowl

There are 50 Shauns hiding in and around Famous Landmarks in the capital – so on Bank holiday Monday we… Read More Hunting for Shaun the Sheep in the City
The Easter holidays were almost over, previously we’ve always gone away – Lanzarote last year (the kids still talk about the mini club man Martin on a daily basis), Dubai the year before, Egypt the year before….. you get the ideas. Time to escape the Great British weather and get some sunshine. This year, my… Read More A few nights away up North
Today we went to Kew Botanical Gardens. I’ve always wanted to go – and it was lovely there. It’s English Spring time – so not a huge amount in flower apart from Tulips, Magnolia, Rhododendrons and Blossom – it was still beautiful. Rather than a load of words – here some pictures.
So I was walking around our local town about 4 weeks ago and spotted these great shoes – for UK people – they are Startrite, normally at £35 a pair. This little shop was selling them for the bargain price of £5 a pair, and much to my great delight, they actually had my daughters… Read More Sometimes a Bargain isn't quite as good as you think!
