Friday saw me Nordic walking round the villages where I was brought up so a great deal of reminiscing. When I lived there the village was slightly tatty round the edges, but now is very gentrified but looked wonderful in spring sunshine. We walked under the windmills ...

We finished with a pub lunch here
Saturday saw me on 50+ Adventure Club outing to Tamworth where I had organised a session on Landpaddling, but I was NOT taking part. It did look fun though.

|Tuition - how to do it|
I got the idea from crochet group as teacher, J, had made one. She got the pattern from here and though there was an English translation it was difficult to understand. However kind teacher that she is, she typed it up for me. Now who shall I give them to - hhem??
Now that the snails are finished I have been able to get on with my Attic24 cosy stripe blanket.
Finally my back garden needed tidying up and I had bought some plants here that needed planting. Whilst planting I took some photos of plants that are special to me.

I often talk to my plants (no I am not a crazy woman, they do seem to understand) and warn them that if they don't grow I will dig them up, but this bush has a different meaning to me.
