Where Have I Been ?

A HoLiDaY, CuB CaMp and turning the BiG 40! A busy month I Had!

Lets start at the very beginning......

Half term week saw us spend a lovely week in Derbyshire in a little village called Kirk Ireton. The weather was mostly great, but the one wet day saw us head for the Emma Bridgewater Factory.

Where we took a factory tour and then decorated a cereal bowl and mugs which turned up back home a few days later fired and glazed and looking lovely -
I may have bought one or two things from the factory shop..........

The following week saw me getting ready for the annual District Cub camp which stayed dry and reasonably warm - a couple of days to recover then.............

39 no... now 40 !

A quiet celebration and lovely meal in Southwold with hubby. I was very lucky, lots of lovely jewellery

A fossil watch, some more Pandora charms for my bracelet and lots of pretty summery coloured jewellery.

A  lovely selection of seaside fat quarters and a lovely superduper Brother sewing machine with 294 stitches! This time of year is just so impossible for craft I find, so must make time to use new machine!

I also have a lovely bunch of friends who have organised a trip for us all and children to Go Ape and a champagne picnic. Also tickets for me to go to Chelsea flower show next year and a cooking course with Humble Cake cookery at Flixton, near Bungay - Yum ! Plus, sewing books, chocolates, wellibobs and Fat Face vouchers - what a lucky person I am :-)

Lastly, summer really has been here this weekend......

Friday night I relived my youth watching Spandau Ballet live at Newmarket races - Tony Hadley singing "True" live was wonderful.

Lastly a picture of rosy, summer loveliness and a cottage gargen at its best - not mine unfortunately, but my Aunties so I will be using her as my consultant on cottage garden planting next year !

Well, I've caught up at last! I hope you are all enjoying June x
