Target Practice

What do you do on a sunny afternoon - some target practice of course! The boys got this garden archery set and as yesterday was really nice, and not windy, they decided to give it a go! They had great fun!

A photo of one of the marigolds that I planted in the garden this year.

We are off on holidays this weekend, so I shall not be around for a couple of weeks. We are off to the Peak District for a week and then to the Keswick Convention for a week.

So Stobo

Stobo was fantastic!! I had a great time and I now feel so chilled and relaxed. The facilities are great - pool, steam rooms, hydrospa etc. I had some great treatments - facial, body massage, manicure and pedicure. It was strange at first going about in robes, but you soon got used to it. We dressed for dinner though and the food was fantastic.

After dinner there was a lovely drawing room to sit in and relax and chat and catch up on each others lives.

School's Out

for Summer. Yes the boys finished today for eight weeks holidays and of course it was raining buckets! I do hope the sun comes back. We thought we needed cake to celebrate so I baked this

I had a go at some needle and wet felting today and I made this

It was a multi-coloured bit of roving which I needle-felted, then wet felted to firm it up a bit and then finished off with some needle felting to shape it again. I thought it would make a nice trinket bowl for putting rings or earrings in.

This weekend I am off to here for a weekend of relaxation and pampering. I am going with a friend - we are off to celebrate our 50th birthdays - hers was last June and mine is August this year, so we thought we deserved a treat.
