This weekend in pictures...

We went for a family meal at a lovely pub next to this river...

We went to The Regal's open day to see how it's coming on - it looks great - gorgeous Art Deco details everywhere (See my other post about The Regal here)

And we went for a walk and a scoot around the village..

This week I'm planning to re-open my Folksy shop with a big sale on my cards and prints - watch this space!

What could be better on a rainy afternoon than a movie on the telly and crumpets toasted on the fire! (Slightly burnt crumpets that is...)

Scrapheap Challenge!

Part of Mark's work is a big scrapyard - the boys love it (obviously..)

It's a bit post-apocalyptic with flowers and trees growing through the bits of scrap steel

I love all the typography and peeling paint - more photos over on Flickr here

By the sea

We had a weekend in North Cornwall.
It was great.
Then we had to come home...

Second puppyhood...

Molly our Big Dog (French Mastiff cross) is on medication for hypo-thyroidism and has a new lease of life! She has reverted to puppyhood in a big way - see below photo...

Luckily it's a very pink ball of wool that I wasn't going to use, but now I'm a bit worried that she's going to start gnawing on the doorframes like she did when she was little...

That was the day we brought her home - she's grown a bit in the last five years...

Stars and leaves

We had quite an eventful weekend - what with this - it's not every day we drive out of our road to be greeted by armed police...
Our little village is back to it's peaceful self now!

I'm doing a lot of little collages at the moment, but I'm having real trouble when it comes to scanning them - my scanner isn't very advanced and it doesn't seem to like the colours of the paper I'm using - any advice happily received!

Better go and pick my little treasures up from school now...

Bye Bye Blue Sky

It's windy, cloudy and a bit chilly today- Autumn is back!

In other news I'm swimming the Channel.
In small increments and in the comfort of my local pool.

Have a look here to set your own swimming challenge- it's great if, like me, you have a serious will power shortage...

'Best Day Ever!'

We couldn't stay at home when the sun was shining so we left home at 6.30 this morning and by 9.30 we were on the beach!

As was everyone else...

Smallest Moody said it was the Best Day EVER. (It was pretty good!)
