The winner is....

The winner is French Knots.   I am so thankful for all the lovely comments and I wish I could knit quick enough to send you all a calorie free cupcake, instead I want to thank you for actually taking time out of your day and leaving such lovely comments.  I indeed had a wonderful summer and your good wishes made it perfect...I thank you!So we returned last night at 9.00pm and the children went to their beds very sleepy and slightly grubby...I then ran around like a mad women getting all their school stuff ready and unloading the bags from our time away.  This morning we had tears (mostly from me) as the little ones went off to school after our seven weeks of 'full on' time together...  we spent most of it by the beach and despite lots of rain we still managed to get a swim in most days either in the sea or the pool...our last week took us to the end of Britain for a camping trip, we had a lovely little spot in the woods and the kids really got back down to basics just playing with sticks and helping Mom cook beans on the fire ( a windy night for sure). So I am home and sadness fills my heart as I can clearly see the changes in the season... the leaves are dropping and there is a chill in the air...

I HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF CATCHING UP TO DO THEN ITS ON WITH THE SEWING AND KNITTING...Oh my and sorting through all those summer photographs...

Well done to French Knots.
I am so glad you summer was a good one. My girls are back at school, some eagerly others a little apprehensive. I too am back at work, it's good to have the routine back but I do miss the lazy days and the laughter of my kids..oh well only 8 weeks to go...

Looks like you had a very lovely summer. As I live Down Under we have just hit spring and all the gloriousness that it brings. Wouldn't it be great to live in the northern hemisphere for half the year and the southern for the other half? Then we wouldn't have to go through the dreariness of winter. But I suppose we would also miss out on those great winter days when there is nothing to do but stay inside and craft.

So lovely to have you back again Suz...can't wait to hear all about your summer in person soon (yipee : ))... it sounded wonderful and your boys will have some memories stored away that they'll always treasure.
Hugs to you all

Just what I needed to cheer me up! Thanks very much :) I have been watching the rain and feeling glum about how dark and cold it is but now I'm feeling less of a misery.
Your camper van looks like a brilliant den for an adventure! x
