A lovely Break and Lost Tooth!

Well we have been on holiday enjoying the sunny weather in our little part of the world. Southwold was the first port of call with yummy fish and chips down the Harbour Inn - Hubby and Father in Law spent the afternoon on an Adams Brewery tour - whilst I took the kiddies for their first crab fishing session of the year at Walberswick. Alas not many crabs about but lots of gloopy mud !

This followed with one of my favourite days out of the year - The Spring Fling at the Norfolk Show Ground, this must be the 4th or 5th time we had been and it lived up to expectations again.

After trying out the machinery, it was on to a little thatching..........

I can't praise the day highly enough - £6 a person (inc a hog roast and apple juice) - full of hands on activities, giveaways from seeds to sausages, milk to keyrings and educating the children all about farming and the countryside and they don't even realise, they are too busy having fun!

Then we went to see the beautiful majestic Suffolk Punch Heavy horses at Hollsey Bay

A wonderful sight, especially seeing the magnificent horses galloping so gracefully in the fields.

In amongst all this jollity, R lost a first front tooth - knocked out by a swing in the garden - my beautiful girl's smile is taking some getting used to!!!

Lastly, I have had little time to doing any sewing, but ran this up last night...

Too nice to give away I think.....

That's all for now, until next time
