We had lovely weekend camping in Oxfordshire with our friends B and S.
Just as we were about to leave on Friday we had a phone call.
B and S had got to the campsite and it was raining.
B was drenched getting from the car to the office.
Luckily the site had a pod free, so we decided to take that for the night rather than get a tent up in the rain. It had lights and more importantly on a very damp and wet evening ~ a heater.
Next morning the boys got the tent up while B and me threw everything into the car for the trip to the next field. We were soon settled in.
We were next to a field of Suffolk Sheep.
We visited a National Trust property Upton House which was owned by Walter Samuel an heir to Shell Oil. The house was preserved in the 1930's and we decided a weekend house party would have been jolly nice there.
Most of the rest of our time was spent talking, playing cards and scrabble and having the odd tipple.
The kids had a great time too with their Aunt at Centre Parks. Lots of swimming, horse riding for DD and paint balling for DS. They came home exhausted!
Well, it's back to school tomorrow, but without the kids, they're back in on Monday. The pregnant colleague is nearly due so I made these little baby socks. I hope she likes them.
Holidays have come to an end :-(
Bye for now....................Clicky Needles.
