Walking, crafting, baking and working

This week has been so enjoyable for a variety of reasons. Very busy at work but lovely weather to be out and about in the community.

Julie and I managed the half marathon walk this year again.Well!!!!I think I registered wrongly as they seemed to think I was running when I only planned on the walk hence when I was finishing they were a bit confused as runners were coming in alongside me falling off their feet and I was walking along pleasantly chatting to Julie.

The summer study got off to a great start with our Precept 40 min with 12 ladies attending the first evening and enjoying getting to know each other over a cuppa and craft after. The summer is always busier for me and as well as coffee+craft I have individual specific craft times and this week it was scrapbooking.

 Scrapbooking takes up so much space or it least it does in my house but then I probably have enough paper and embellishments to furnish a shop. Anyway with this particular hobby because of the space it is a max of 3 persons in a session . I am way behind on holiday photos so working on USA trip which was a family reunion in 2011 where my cousin Kathy invited everyone to her home!!! We had a fantastic time and if you are reading this Kathy it will be a time we will never forget I doubt it would be possible for so many of us to get together in the same way again especially when most in USA.

J and I went to have a look at the seashore celebration in Bangor browsed the stalls and then spent some time looking at the arty pods along the front. These are a change from delapidated buildings and very enjoyable to look at.

Mountstewart garden fete was also enjoyable until the rain came but we were leaving at that point anyway. I got some new chutneys and J some new flowers for the garden.

Lots of baking to catch up on this week to stock freezer and cover for all the folk who frequent my home for whatever reason.  Thanks to all of those who donated to Kiwoko charity we raised £22.65 for the month of June. We will continue to collect donations each month.

I got so involved in my hobbies most days even after work the moon was certainly the last thing I saw as not in bed before 0100hrs most nights.
