We've had friends, S and B staying this weekend.
We went on Saturday to Coughton Court a National Trust property in the next county up of Warwickshire. A really lovely tudor house with super gardens. We went up onto the roof and had a good look around.
The gardens were great too and contained some fab-u-lous Gunnera in the bog garden.
Here's a rare picture of me (!) so you can get idea of the height. I'm 5"3' and I fitted comfortably underneath it, although I am quite well camouflaged.
We had a picnic lunch and a poke around the National Trust shop and I fell in love with this blanket made from recycled wool which then came home with us.
When we got home we had a jolly nice Cremant with some Creme du Mure and an English Strawberry. Yummy!
B very kindly bought me some citronella candles for the garden ~ just my colours.
Unfortunately we didn't get to use then Saturday night because it was too chilly to be outside.
Instead we played cards and Scrabble well into bed time. So what? I hear you ask.
I got an eight letter word in Scrabble (used an s on the board already) ~ dragnets. This is the FIRST TIME EVER I've managed to get all my letters out and get the extra points. Woop, woop!
As always we had a super weekend with lots of laughs.
I've had a good week off and got the Tea-Cosy finished.
As you can see I've folded back a brim because it was a little bit too tall. Incase you're wondering ~ yes my tea is hot!
My squares for June's bit of the Friendship blanket arrived nice and early.
Mine will be underway soon.
I need to say a big "Hello" to my Dad who had a hip replacement operation this week. He is back home and walking about, so "Get well soon Dad".
I've had a refreshing half-term break, but today's weather has been miserable, rainy and cold, let's hope it warms up again.
Hope your week is a good one.
