That's it - finished for the summer - whoo-hoo!!!

Well Sarah broke up for the summer on Monday, the two younger ones yesterday and I've just been into work for a couple of hours to do the last minute invoice paying and banking so I can rest easy now until September - Yee Haaah!


I'd like to say this is the weather we're enjoying right now but sadly, it's not. However here in mizzly, drizzly Taunton at least we have power and running water and the house is dry and secure which is more than can be said for the poor devils in Gloucester where we used to live.


Sunday will see us heading down to the south Devon coast in our trailer tent for 11 nights. Nige intends to stick a couple of canoes on the top of the car and return to Bigbury on Sea where we took the kids canoeing last summer - check back to my post of 30th August last year - I can't seem to get blogger to make the link - grrrrr!!!!!


My only two reservations are the weather - but at least the long range weather forecast is predicting dry if somewhat cool - and the state of my back after sleeping in a trailer tent for 11 nights.


Still nothing the chiropractor can't sort out when we get back eh? :o)


So now, apart from the mountain of ironing, all the housework that needs doing before we go and the packing, the one thing I must do is sort out some portable handstitching to take along with me to while away the hours


I have a germ of an idea in English piecing over papers - right, I'm off to draft some hexagons and diamonds - watch this space.......

Hoooray for vacation! Can't wait to hear about your camping adventures and to see whatever handwork you decide to take with you!

Have a really good break- you deserve it. Funnily enough I think that sometimes the best family holidays don't need sun. Ok a bit, but providing you are all together and having fun then that is the most important.

Even though the weather isn't to your liking, I am sure that having free time to do as you please is wonderful. Plus it is a good excuse to spend time indoors and quilt! I hope you have a wonderful time camping. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

Here we are home again and you are off for a wonderful holiday. I hope you get some sun. It was great fun to chat for a few minutes - wish it could have been longer.
