Firstly, my blog has a new look. I've worked out how to link to pdf files so am putting up free charts in a tidier way than just putting them up as pictures. I hope you enjoy them. Please bare in mind they are still covered by copyright and while people can come to the blog and take them, they really shouldn't be emailed to others or uploaded to other websites..and you know which ones I mean!
Secondly, I have a finish! This is a little Aran cardigan for my granddaughter. I'm starting to become a crochet addict!
It's hard to get a good photo..we have rain, hail and sunshine one after the other and the light is naff.
I went away last week for a few days to visit relatives. I got some great photos! I wonder if anyone knows where I went?
I visited the town where my mum lives and there were some really great things to see. I mean, who would have expected to see a chair in a bus shelter?
And with it being the Remembrance weekend, there had to be some poppy day photos!
Isn't this amazing? It's certainly original!
And what soldier would be without his trench? The effort put into this is amazing!
We actually stayed in a seaside town nearby. You know me and the sea. I love it. I think I was a mermaid in a past life!
The tide was out but look at that sky. It looks like a watercolour waiting to happen only much prettier!
We didn't just get sea, we got to see the Remembrance day parade and displays. The place we stayed has a lot of history regarding the UK forces which I wasn't aware of so it was great to learn about it!
I was especially impressed when everyone applauded the veterans. I wasn't so impressed when some of them turned out not to be so old. Young people with injuries from war. We never learn do we? My son wants to join the army and I have to say I have mixed emotions about it. What mother doesn't? I come from a forces family but it doesn't make it any easier!
And then we found a pelican. I wasn't too sure why there was a pelican there but here he is
We finished off with a trip to the most amazing garden centre. I can't show many photos because my younger son is in them and I won't add piccies without his permission.
It was definitely Christmassy!
The bears were moving and playing music and all the little kids were dancing to it. It was soooo cute!
We got up really early to get to the airport when we were coming home which meant we got to see half of the supermoon in the dawn light. Clouds covered the bottom of it and it looked quite eerie. I'd packed the camera so no piccies. I was glad to see it though.
As we got in the car we heard geese and as we looked up we saw hundreds of geese all flying in for the winter from their summer home (Siberia etc). I miss the migration flights. I'm a Norfolk girl through and through. It was magical. It may have been the last time I get to see them it so I like to think those geese were waiting for me. It was a wonderful experience despite being another goodbye. I feel so blessed to have been able to see them. It meant a lot to me.
Right, I have some Holmsey's Winter Wonderland to stitch so I'll love you and leave you . Thank you for visiting!
