Wandering and wondering

Happy New Year.....yes a bit belated I know, but I got there in the end.
We've had a lovely lazy time in our house before the kids had to go back to school. No sewing though, I must dust off the old sewing machine and get making!

Despite horrible colds, we went for a lovely wander on New Years Day to the lovely little town of Sandwich very near to us.  It was very cold, but just what the Doctor ordered a walk to blow the cobwebs away and contemplate a new year of opportunites.

We thought this flint wall in Sandwich was quite old it must be!

The New Year also brought some relatives back in the country after a few years living in Europe. It is so nice to have them on the hometurf again including a new addition - they brought back a gorgeous Cocker Spaniel too who we all fell in love with! We enjoyed a lovely sunshiny walk with them and their lovely dog.

January 7th was also my beautiful little girls 6th birthday. What a little lady she is too! She is 6 going on 16! We took her, her best friend and brother to the cinema to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip Wrecked, no Toy Story but the kids loved it!
Her day ended with her 'boyfriend' from school George coming round and serenading her some lines from a Bruno Mars song (I think I want to marry you!!) on the doorstep! She was equally shocked, delighted and embarrased bless her!!!

Such high standards at the age of  6 though! What is she going to be expecting boys to do by the time she is 16!! Lets hope she sticks with George and he keeps up the romantic gestures!
