Family

We have had lots of visits from family over the past few weeks, which has been just lovely.


First my mum and dad popped down to see us for the day, which meant a little pre-dinner drink at the Old Neptune to watch the sunset - (Happy Mother's Day for yesterday by the way Mum!).
Then my sister, her boyfriend and kids popped down unexpectedly the other sunday afternoon, which meant err....more pre-dinner drinks at the Old Neptune!
















My two had a whale of a time with their cousins. My son F and my neice decided to do some paddling and got soaked! It was freezing as well, not quite as warm as the last couple of weeks! We all had a ball anyway, although there were many tears when they had to go home. Both my parents are only children so I didn't grow up with cousins and love watching our children and their lovely relationship with my sisters children, it is so special.
It was also my nephews 4th birthday last week, and as he is VW Campervan mad I made him this picture to go up in his room. I think he liked it !

Hi Helen, lovely b&w photos!
Thanks for your comment on my blog. I would love to know what books you have found helpful in learning to sew. I have a few sewing books, but I have to admit that I definitely find it easier to learn by being shown how to do it, or by trial and error, than I do from reading about how to sew!
