Hello......... Here in the UK last weekend was a bank holiday, so as tradition dictates it just had to rain, we were fairly lucky on Saturday as the sun did come out for a while so we took advantage of this and headed off the sand park for a picnic.
Even Mutley had some doggy picnic food to enjoy.
The park was very pretty but unfortunately my little mobility scooter ran out of charge so we couldn't really explore to far. I never did make it to the sand park bit, but my nephew 'L' went off and played there for a while
I'd love to go back there again, and explore further, the park runs right along by the sea
with lots of quiet seating dotted about, it even has it own amphi thearte.
and you can also access the beach, oh I do love being by the sea, fortunately the rain held off long enough for our little pottle about, but as we got back in the car the heavens opened.
On the way out of town we drove up the hill and stopped off at the new WW1 memorial arch which you can read more about 'here' .
here's one more shot of the gorgeous yarny Poppies
For we were on a mission, to buy school uniform as my nephew is off to the Grammar School, next week. We didn't have much luck finding age eleven trousers and shirts, but I did much better getting these super cute knitted slippers, just in the nick of time as it's been freezing cold ever since.
Aren't they fab, and super snuggly, I love everything about them stripes yarn, flowers and buttons
I also bought a cardigan in the most gorgeous purple colour made from a amazing yarn which has different colours through it that looks almost like ribbon.
Happy Happy !!
Not to worry my sister had a bit more success on the uniform front the next day.
As for me Sunday was a day for hunkering down avoiding the endless drippy rain, the perfect weather for a spot of crochet, my latest make for the Craft Club exhibition.
and as for Bank holiday Monday, well just look at it !!!! welcome to Summertime
So instead I focused on my pretty new miniature Rose
which at £3.50 was cheaper than buying a bunch of Roses and hopefully this will last a lot longer.
then there was more crochet snuggled up under the duvet, I managed to complete this make over the weekend so more on that another day.
Even Merli gave up on his favourite summer snoozing spot by the pond and opted to keep me company, it's still raining today, come on Summer where have you gone.
