Reasons to get out and about

Busy week with the girls and so much activity in he house led to a lot of extra housework and anyone who knows me knows that housework is not a priority for me. Lots of baking to stock up and the oven to clean. I did cheat with the oven and got a professional in.

Any how vacuum and steamer came out, beds stripped, washing and ironing.afte all this I really needed to get out.

We had a lovely time at Castle Ward with friends and the girls obviously hadn't had their fill of crafts as there they were at it again and lovely work too.gave me some ideas for next summer and card making.smudge was pleased to see her friend Daisy again after one days separation!!
Note the clocks in the tree.we had such fun looking at all the creative items along our walk.
The weather seems to be on the turn so another reason to get out as much as possible to make the most of it. It was J's birthday this week which he generally doesn't make a fuss about and it also coincided with our last day looking after Miss K before she starts school.

We had lunch at Phil's Happy Coffee Bean cafe in Bangor and J got to make the whippy ice cream as a treat for Miss K. She made us some lovely gifts and another Westie to compliment Smudge.
J got a few more surprises when he got to work and all the staff had decided to celebrate with him.
Still time left in the week for coffee and craft and wonderful to see how Jeannette's quilt is progressing and Tracy has started another cross stitch. I am still doing hand sewing on my bedroom curtains as I was out more than in this week.
Just received a flyer for a craft event coming up. Managed to squeeze in a quick walk at Belmont with Julie and the dogs.
