Another unused stamp!!
A Woodware stamp purchased some time ago!!
I coloured it with my Zig Pens that were given to me
from Sandy, that had The Craft Barn.
So a big thank you Sandy, they are great to colour with.
We have just returned from holiday number 2!
A week in The Cotswolds
Not as good as holiday number 1 in May,
a week in The Yorkshire Dales.
The highlight was meeting up with the two daughters
of a very old friend. Their Mum, Josie and I had a very close
friendship and she sadly passed away 17 years ago, aged 54 years.
I sat with her through her final hours.
Debbie, the eldest one, drove for 3 hours from her home in
Sussex to her sister, Karen in Wiltshire!!
The next day she drove them, for just under 2 hours up to
meet up with me in The Cotswolds!
We had 5 hours of chatting over a long lunch!!
Some tears about losing their Mum and a lot
of laughter about what we got up to in our younger days!!
It was so lovely to see them.
Josie and I had the same sense of humour.
I was driving us one day, from a craft show in Brighton,
home to the village we lived in West Sussex.
We were laughing so much I had to stop in a lay by,
as I couldn't see the road through the laughter tears!!
I have so many happy memories of our times together.
This photo I took in Bourton-on-the-Water in The Cotswolds.
It was a lovely day and we sat on a bench along side this river.
Then we could not believe our eyes. The whole area
was taken over by Chinese groups of Tourists.
I know we were tourists, but there was only 2 of us.
There were hundreds of the Chinese and that is not an exaggeration!!
They just took over the village so we left.
I hope to get back to posting a bit more often.
I have been catching up with your blogs over the last few days.
So thank you for the messages on my last post.
I had scheduled it so it appeared that we were at home!
Hope I haven't bored you with this post.
I will return comments to those that I receive
on my blog.
I do so love reading them and they certainly give me a lift!
