The week began with the 50+ Adventure Club Spring Walk and a pub lunch. A lovely sunny day though there was a cold wind at the top of a very steep hill, which did sort 'the men from the boys' so to speak. I have to keep walking on these occasions and keep my head down and not speak to anyone, so got up fairly quickly.
|The way down even though everyone looks as if they are going up!!|
The next day was my weekly Nordic walk and we watched nature quite a lot but still managed to walk 6 miles. I love this picture -
That same evening I whooped with delight as I saw that these had returned to my bird feeder after a few years away.
|Goldfinches - my favourite!|
but we also had to visit the swings as well!! I think he was a little daunted by the hundreds of school children receiving a free tennis lesson!!
Last night I went to a local meeting of the Embroiders Guild to hear Jacqueline Wilson give a talk on Smocking. Very handy as I had my Smocking Group this morning and the talk has given me some ideas. I want to use it in clothing for myself but have to find the right medium, but in the meantime my granddaughters may receive some more dresses.
I spent £3 this week buying this book, and having had hysterical laughter over the bikini on the front cover I actually found a pattern inside that I liked. The hysterical laughter was brought on by the memories of knitted woollen swimsuits that sagged around the ankles when they got wet!! As the yarn suggested is no longer made I phoned the lovely people at the Wool Warehouse who were extremely helpful and the parcel duly arrived. Very exciting.
|This is all I will show at this moment|
A free weekend is coming up so I MUST finish my May Mini Mania as there are only about 10 days to go and June is just as busy!!!! Heeeeelp.
