August was a Fabulous, Busy Special Month

Its been a few weeks since I wrote anything, because August was a very busy month for us.

We had cousins over from New Mexico in the USA for the first couple of weeks in August, and what was lovely about this, wasn't just seeing family, but how you start to look at your country through their eyes.  They spent a week up on the North East Coast, and we were worrying about how cold they would be and worrying about the rain get them down.  They however thought it was lovely and "refreshing", which I guess if you live in constant heat, it probably is.

When thinking of what to do with them we decided on Stratford upon Avon and Warwick castle.  We all really enjoyed the falconry and the jousting, and to top it all at the end of the enactment of the battle of the roses, in August, it started to hail!

Then the following week we went upto the Scottish Borders for my Dads 80th birthday celebrations (his birthday was in June, but we know how to make a birthday last in this family).  We had such a lovely time, that part of the country is so beautiful.  While we were out and about I was finding crafting examples all over, which was so lovely.

So September is already nearly half way through, and it suddenly feels like Autumn is coming in fast..someone pass me my socks please!



  • Hi Clare just a few lines to say thank you for my order of buttons and the freebies you included. Really appreciated. Great service and quality. As a North Easterner I’m glad your family liked our famous coast, it is beautiful and we’re so lucky to live here.Take care.
