Horrendous journey yesterday as the police used the M20 to Folkestone as a giant lorry park (called stacking) because there was a problem with the Channel Tunnel. This meant that all the slip roads to the motorway were closed and I had to drive cross country like everyone else, so the traffic was awful. Still at least they have done away with toll booths on the Dartford Crossing of the River Thames and everything is now number plate recognition and payment online, which has speeded the crossing up - brilliant.
This morning I have been to Sports Day at L's nursery where she ran really well as her "fast button had been switched on!". There was a Mummy's relay race and our 'Mummy's team' ran so well that they won and each were given a huge bar of chocolate. We will enjoy eating some of it later!!
I have finished one or two crafty things. I made two more of these:-
On the left is one for Ellie and I thought that B might like on and so the one on the right is blue for a boy.
I have finished my embroidery and had it mounted professionally here. Apologies but the picture is slightly out of focus!! This seems to be happening more often so I must look at the manual.
As embroidery class has finished for the summer, I wondered what to do next. I rather fancied some goldwork - loads of bling - but in the end settled for Mountmellick. I am slightly out of my comfort zone here as it is not delicate embroidery, which I actually prefer, but I have to try everything.
Now to take L for her swimming lesson and then later this afternoon I go and watch P at her tap class as it is the last before the holidays. Should be fun and they grow up so fast. I realised that this week, as it is 10 years ago this week that my lovely husband Chris, died. It was a slight shock when I realised that B will be 10 in January (Chris died before seeing his first grandchild). Double figures already and then a teenager. Where does the time go?
