The weekend was fabulous in the UK. For a few hours on Saturday we went to watch Dad drive classic sports cars around Mallory Park race circuit. He had so much fun, and so did we. The children thought their Grampy was a real race driver in his green overalls and helmet and were shouting and cheering for him to overtake any other car that he got he near. My husband thought that it looked so good, that I now know what to arrange for him to do when it is his 40th birthday. (Less than 2 years away now darling!)
After leaving the race track behind we drove up to Otley in Yorkshire and had a super time with an old friend and her family that we hadn’t seen for over 2 years. On Sunday they took us up to Brimham Rocks where everyone had such fun climbing all over the rocks and looking for Fraggles, and fortunately despite the looming black clouds the rain held off. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Now back home it is half term so the children are looking to be entertained. We collected some leaves the other day so we will do something with those today. I will post a picture soon.
It was my sisters birthday on Friday and I made her an apron and embellished a couple of tea towels with patterns out of Amy Butler’s In Stitches. She seemed really pleased. I loved them so much I will be making more.
