Tomorrows agenda!

Hubbo is working tomorrow and I have been working most of the week, so me & little dear are going to watch Toy Story 3 tomorrow morning as a bit of a treat. I then need to get into the workshop to do some sewing for some orders.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I can tell that the end of term is approaching, as I have been making on mass lots of 'Teachers Gift sets'. Lucky teachers that what I say.

Also another big seller has been my doorstops, I have been that busy with these I thought that they had been featured somewhere without me knowing.

Also with it been end of term it has been little dears first sports day, the team colours top was that big on her it looked like a dress. Bless her she came third in her sprint race.

We also made a trip to Foxhouses in Derbyshire on a recommendation from Diane to set sail little dears new boat. We had a great afternoon which was cut short by a family arriving a little bit down stream with a dog. It was a young dog which was not well trained and it jumped all over us, then proceeded to poo in the stream and the owners just let it float down, pass there own children and onto probably 100 more kids further down stream. Disgusted I was!!!

Family holiday!

This was our home for 2 weeks in June. My Mum & Dad every year pay for us all to go on holiday together. Very informal, no set itineraries, free babysitting for each of us (us & brothers & sisters). Perfect! This year we went to the Vendee region in France, it was great, very rural and quiet.

I have to say my favourite town/village was Vouvant, absolutely picture perfect and so quiet. On mine & hubbos free pass we took our selves off for a picnic at the side of this lake.

Next blog post may contain some of the car boot finds!

What's going down!

We did manage to make it to York to celebrate our wedding anniversary, but the weather was really horrible I did not manage to take photographs. We had a great day, a lovely meal, lots of shopping and great company. The CK stuff and the DVD were a wedding anniversary present from hubbo.
We spent the rest of free weekend watching the Darling Buds of May DVD before we had to collect little dear from my sisters. We have also just returned from a 2 week break in France with all my family, it was really great and we even managed to find a car boot sale!!

My intentions before we went to France was to start up some home brew, but unfortunately the Elderflower were not in full bloom and when we returned it was a little to far gone so we will have to see how it goes.
Little dear helping out, can you get arrested for encouraging your child to produce home brew?

Next photos will be of France, Jam making and maybe some crafting!!
