Round our village

Following the village trail, looking for clues, seeing history all around us, hunting for signs of spring, sharing the fun with friends
Ending with treat bags of Easter goodness
and stick-sword battling !

Love of cross stitch
Dusted off the stash ( yes I have a cross stitch stash too ) subscribed to a magazine and now I am a tad addicted

Last week, my Mum turned 60 and celebrated her 43rd wedding anniversary too.
We gifted them a night in a hotel, The Kings Arms in Kent, such strong family memories, my Nan worked there, my Mum too, my Dad was barred in his youth, my uncles drank there and many a family gathering was held.
What my parents didn't know, is that we were there too, along with cousins, brothers, aunties and friends.
Surprise !
Such a lovely evening, full of the warmest of wishes, the brightest of blessings and love, so much love.

My children

The ladies in jackets, delightful.
Happy Hens.
Grandad helped them into their new gear, talking to them, sorting this, checking that, worried now they will think, they have, not only a personal shopper but a stylist too !

Happy Mail

It's March, happy days.
Lighter evenings, bursts of sunshine, bulbs flashing their stunning colours, still having fires to fight the chill but hope is rising.
