Good Morning lovely people - tis Friday - the first Friday of February and it's time to see what's
First up is my Mum, she is an amazing lady at the best of times, but she doesn't half make me chuckle, here she is in the butchers. As she is watching her weight she wanted to know if they did chipolata sausages - as the butcher didn't have any she got him to make her some! Like I said amazing!
It was lovely to catch up with my sister, Mum and later on my niece last Friday. We put the world to rights in the coffee shop before heading into the garden centre to have a wander. We enjoyed smelling all the scents from the scented candles. I'm not one for having them in the home, but enjoyed seeing if they did actually smell like freshly cut grass!
Here is the three of us outside in the garden, me and my sister having to bob down as my Mum is only 4 foot 10 inches!
The gardens at the garden centre are beautiful, part of the historic gardens of Wentworth Woodhouse, I love gates and loved this one in particular
My Mum had a new coat and my sister tormented her by putting up her hood when I was trying to take a photo - hence the blurry shot we were laughing so much!
My Mum was not amused!
Eventually I did manage a decent one of them both
We spotted deer in their enclosure
And the first signs of spring - I love snowdrops!
We giggled at this deer who appeared to have his head on backwards
And these two were being naughty when we got to the bear pit
I loved the tones on the day - really beautiful but so very very cold.
Saturday found us in Sheffield, searching for a new guitar for said 16 year old, there is a second hand music store that me and hubby had been in previously. He found two he liked and finally picked one that fit the bill.
We spotted them taking down the Grosvenor Hotel which used to have the Wapentake club underneath, famous for all its rock music and an old haunt of hubbies, sad to see a landmark go.
On our way back up we spotted a Chinese Dragon dance taking place as part of the Chinese New Year Celebrations
At home I set up with plenty of paints with said 16 year old, he was working on his art book and I was working on my Wanderlust pages.
Here is one of my finally finished Wanderlust pages - it took long enough but I was happy once it was done.
I received mail art from Donna
Tuesday I was on a course in Sheffield on Employment Law, it wasn't very interesting so I needed a good start to the day as it were, a strong coffee did the trick!
Wednesday I got home to fabulous post from the lovely Chris, I put out a plea recently on our group on UK Scrappers and on Facebook to see if anyone knew where I could buy reasonably sized fabric letters. There were a few ideas but nothing that made me jump for joy as it were, until the very lovely Chris - yes that's the lady who sent me the gorgeous journal before Christmas, sent me a message to say she had dies that were about the size I needed and could she send me some - so this fabulous parcel is those letters arriving including the negative which I'm sure said 16 year old will be able to use - Chris - thank you, you are a star!
Hope everyone has had a fabulous week and looking forward to the weekend, if you fancy joining in pop a post together pop back and link up and we shall come and visit.
