Easter been and gone already!

Having the kids off for Easter seemed to go quickly, sunny days, no rain and lots of chocolate but best of all, seeing family.
Seeing my sister in Salisbury and visiting Grandparents, who put on a good easter egg hunt in their garden with great clues was fabulous.

The Egg said "Don't Eat Me All At Once" 
mmmmm! Is that possible!!!!


Upton House was another visit in the holidays, just the other side of Banbury.
Definitely worth a visit, the kids did a trial game which led you to clues around the house and gardens, great fun.

You should have seen the kids faces when they were given an easter egg each for bringing back the game. We are going to come back in the summer with a picnic and spent the day there.

Crafting Again!

I have had a peg loom sitting in my cupboard for a year - naughty I know. So I thought I would let my daughter have some fun and make something. She decided to make a scarf, I have a photo of what she has done so far.....
Not bad, if I say so myself!

Brackley Craft Fair

Last Saturday was my local Craft Fair, the weather was kind to us, so that brought more people out.
Its early in the year and people are still watching their pennies. Mind you, its school holidays and I have had to buy school shoes for the kiddies, which cost an arm and a leg, as you know. So even I wasn't spending.

Its a friendly Craft Fair and some of the stallholders are really good friend's, like Sarah from Noahs Ark Crafts she had the most colourful stall there, here's a photo to prove it...

another friend, Lucy Tustian who makes lovely items using Stained Glass was there too.

Next Craft Fair is in June, so I better get making.......!
