It was a craft fair visiting, plant buying, Grand Prix watching, jam tart eating (we always have jam tarts at this time of year..why do they say "Spring"?) kind of a weekend.
And a sock heel turning, bunk bed dismantling, making and unmaking weekend. A holiday planning, discussions round the kitchen table weekend. A back to school on Monday weekend
But it's exam term now, and this time last year we started the tradition of a Sunday night drivetime: as a kind of buffer between the studying of a Sunday afternoon and the getting up for school the next morning. We all pile into the car and go for a mystery tour before heading home for some Sunday evening TV. We started out last night and we ended up at the barge you can see in the top picture. The light was beautiful and it fitted with my other weekend photos. It was a good trip.
Me on Monday?
Hiding my guilty look! Yes: I couldn't bear to leave the Granny squares staring accusingly out of their bag any longer. Today I'm putting down the socks and taking on the task of sorting my squares. As you can see, I have the odd loose end or two to darn in..
And I'd like to ask everyone to keep one of our number in mind this week. Some of you will know Gail from Storytelling Sunday, and she waves on a Monday when she gets the chance too. Please cheer her on this week as she faces surgery and radiation treatment. We're behind you every step of the way Gail!
