So I'm going to try and write less words and post more pictures (a picture paints a thousand words?) for one post at least.
I know that it's now Thursday but we really did have a fabulous time.
After the boot sale we made our way to a seaside village around 20 minutes from home. And were met by Marged and Dadi -
|Marged's first dip in seawater - she loved it of course!|
|It was a beautiful day|
|And we all got our feet wet!|
|We did the usual|
|Fish and Chips|
|and Ice Cream|
|and spent a lot of time smiling!|
|We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world - if only the sun shone a little more often....|
And wait for it, the day wasn't over yet.
On the way home we stopped to pick up an old friend.
|Library photo - you'll see why later|
I drove him home and Anwen came along for the ride
|I think Mami was going a little too fast for someone's liking!|
The reason why Morris came to stay with us is so that we could attend a local vintage rally. Unfortunately Marged's car seat isn't compatable with Morris' 1960's design so her and Dadi needed to find an alternative mode of transport.
God job we have one of these
|Library shot again I'm afraid.|
Unfortunately the unusual sunny skies of yesterday had left us and had been replaced by rain. Lots and lots of rain :-(
So although I did get some of this done
|Binding on Cara's quilt|
|And the girls had some fun playing on Dadi's bus|
|Some more pictures of me and Anwen having some fun in Morris.|
So the weekend didn't end there. In Wales we have a youth organisation called the Urdd and every year they hold a national eisteddfod. (click on the link to get a better explination of what this is) The Eisteddfod moves around every year and as it was only around 30mins from home this year we thought that we'd spend a day there.
Unfortunately Dadi couldn't come as a phone call at 7.00am confirmed that his colleague/best man/joint owner of Morris wouldn't be in work for two weeks. (WHY?) So it was just me, Anwen, Marged, my MIL, SIL and niece!
|We met lots of our heroes!|
|Took some funny pictures|
|Watched a show|
|And met the lady of the hour - Dona Direidi!|
And then we did some well deserved
In future I hope to keep family posts to a minimum but this weekend we did so many things that are very 'us' so I thought that it would give you a rough idea of where I'm coming from etc!
Hopefully a WIP post will come soon (and maybe even a finish!)
