We're Back and two Awards passed on..

Due to Hubby being self employed now (and work is going ok at the moment), he decided that seeing as work was a little quiet that we would have a few days in Chesterfield to visit his Aunt and some friends. it was a bit of a whirlwind visit but we came back today. Tiger has been fetched from the cattery, Sop0hie is playing up in the attic, hubby is finding something for dinner at Tesco and I am contemplating the washing! We visited Chatsworth and Bakewell, had a good drive round and the skies were very blue and the sun shone, a little nippy but then it is April. We were fed and made welcome and it was brilliant. We have had instructions not to leave it another 8 years before we go back again! Everyone now has children of the own and it was quite manic with all of them running around as they are all 7 or under and I lost count how many the final total was. Should now at a glance being a teacher but my Child counting radar is turned off for the next two weeks!

I did not do any sewing at all, did buy a few bits but nothing to get excited about and now I have come home with renewed vigour to make Sophie's new curtains and finish my latest swap entry. I did manage to do some reading back at the hotel which was a nice change. I will update you all with crafty stuff before the weekend. I was naughty and did not take any photos while we were away but sometimes you just don't feel like it do you?

I am a bad blogger because Kitty gave me this award ages ago and it got lost in all the pictures in my file, sorry Kitty!
I can not remember the rules for this either, detention for me.
So I am going to make up my own....
I would like to give it to the following as I would like to say thank you for your kind words about my ramblings on this blog:
Inkberry Blue
Lesleys Creations
Primrose Corner
April - Cakes Makes the world go round.
Bliss Country Life
They are all have very different blogs and their links are in the sidebar because linking here at the moment often causes problems with blogger and I then lose the whole post which is very annoying.

I was also lucky enough to be even this one from JoJo just before I went away. So I am going to pick 7 bloggers who I value popping by and saying Hello :


Tiny White Daisies


Cathy's Crochet Cabin

Pink Penguin

The Chocolate Cat

I hope that some or all of these will be accepted, it is only a bit of fun. I am now off to tuck Sophie in bed and do some sewing.

Take care

You're welcome to the award Andrea - it's much deserved. I appreciate all your comments.

Your spontaneous break away sounds just perfect ... now you just have all the washing to do!

Thanks so much for the award! How exciting. And I'm so glad you had a good trip. It's good to get away sometimes, even if it's just for a short time.

Aw! Thank you for the award. Now, just to figure out how to put it on my blog.....!

Glad to hear you had a good trip, I'm at the frantically packing 'oh my goodness, how little time do we have left, and how much to do' stage, before a week away!
