Hello again...

It is the last day of the school holiday's today and as a family we had just the best week. No school or nursery runs, no shopping (except nice stuff) no housework, lots of chilling out, country walks and joint crafting time. What is our secret? I have a little bolt hole that I escape to once in a while with the kids and its just fab, best of all there is a swimming pool. So here is a photos of the half term craft box...
Spot the pom poms, they just keep on growing, you need quite a lot to make a scarf look anything part way OK. Lots of goodies got produced.. The weather forecast said snow and as we had once been snowed in here, so I took extra stuff with us, sadly just a splattering of snow and quite a lot of rain. Never mind we still had a great time, lots of wet welly walks and endless mugs of Hot Chocolate and marshmallows to warm our tummies and hands up. Oh off the kids go again...
I took quite a few arty type pictures. I love the textures in this shot.
A team work project to celebrate Valentines day, between us we made lots of hearts. We even decorated heart shaped cookies, this was a particular favourite with my youngest. Due to them all been eaten up rather quickly no photo was taken of them...take it from me...yum yum!
So it was with a heavy heart we said goodbye to our beloved cottage and returned home, to be greeted by a pile of post (only one bill) an invite to my friend's opening of her photography exhibition with a G & T reception, which was happening as we read the invite. So we all jumped in the car and rushed off. It was very good, such a talented person. As an extra treat she had booked a table in a local restaurant to continue the event so all us girls went out. A great time was had by all, back home in time to start my unpacking and washing and continue with the post opening session... More goodies, a selection of FQ's. The heart one was for Valentines day, Mmmm! bit late for that now. The rest I have an Easter project in mind.
Feeling low today as its back to it tomorrow.

Sounds like you had a great week! Maybe plan something good midweek to beat the blues. My husband is away weds night so I'm planning good book, bubble bath, glass of wine...in reality the children will probably get up and the wine will be warm and the bath cold!
