Hip, hip, hip, hip hooray
The sun has got his hat on and at last it is Friday (again).
Good afternoon - can you tell I'm in a good mood?
First bit of good news - I've finished the dollies I want to take to the craft fair later in the month;
The second bit, MrSunshine has returned to Suffolk and I've spent the day out & about.
This morning it was into town to collect some bits I forgot to add to the shop yesterday! and whilst I was there it would have been rude not to go into the charity shops. I spotted this book in the window of the first shop - its one I've wanted for a while;
I headed off round the rest of the town and got to the last shop just seconds too late - there was a gorgeous F&M picnic hamper being bought :( for just £5 - heyho just not my turn for one :(
The postie had been when I got home - some new violin books for little son and a book for me - I've seen this on several blogs & also in Coast magazine. Whilst we've no money for the real thing, pictures will have to do instead;
This afternoon I headed out with Country Girl to the Emporium at Thorpeness - a favourite haunt of ours. The normal pattern of browsing, buying & tea followed. A couple more Ladybirds have been added to my collection;
Thorpeness was lovely - warm & sunny and quiet. I guess of the weekend weather is as promised tomorrow it will be busy with daytrippers & weekenders. We wandered over to the Mere for a look and a photo opportunity;
You can just see the House in the Clouds & White Mill in the background.
Not many people out of the water today - again I suspect that might be different tomorrow;
Loads of swans on the water today - they started to come over & look at us to feed them - so we didn't hang around. I remember them being rather unfriendly when I was small. On the way back to the car, we passed this gorgeous vintage car - I'd love one of these - don't stand a chance, I don't drive & I can't see MrVV trading his modern car in for something with no mod cons, however gorgeous it is;
I was home in time to take the dollies out for a photo session in the garden before the boys arrived back from school;
This one ^^^ is my favourite
Have a good weekend folks - lets hope its a warm one for all :)
