We're back!

Well my back survived 11 nights in a trailer tent and sitting on fold up chairs and lived to tell the tale.
The weather was immensely kind to us. The campsite wardens told us that prior to our arrival they'd had eight weeks of solid rain!

We fitted in loads of beach time,

some higher altitude time on Dartmoor


and a wonderful zoo visit.


Dad even managed to slot in some trains one day.

The kids did their fair share of cooking and washing up. Cholesterol laden breakfast madam?
Sadly I didn't get any fabric shopping in - I was incredibly good. However I came home to some lovely treats that I'll share with you in greater detail in another post and I've been out on a little foray today bringing more treasure home with me .
But as always all good things come to an end and if I'm to play with any of my goodies then this sewing area is desperate for a jolly good tidy up.
Still never mind at least I don't have to go to work for another three weeks or so which should give me the time to get on with it when Nigel returns to work on Monday.

Hey Anne, welcome back. Looks like you had a good (dry) time. I notice your sewing room looks much like mine - must be the time of year, everyone seems in the mood for a jolly good tidy up LOL

Welcome back - you have been missed. Glad the weather was good for you. Friends came back from Padstow the week you left. They got rained out and I think possibly floated out of the camp site on their last day. Looking forward to seeing what you've purchased.
