Well, today I am travelling back up to Dorset and then on to West Sussex for my granddaughters christening.  It doesnt seem five monutes ago that I was having my daughter christened.  Living down here in Cornwall whilst she lives in Chichester means that I dont get to see that  much of either my daughter or my granddaughter, which is heartbreaking but I am going to make the most of seeing them this weekend.  But then again I am lucky also that  they are coming down to stay with me the following week.  My daughter by the was is Ashley of http://countryrose7.blogspot.com/ , and I am so proud of her for giving me my first grandchild. 
Oh well, this was only a quick one, and I will write some more when I come back, with lots more pictures.
Thanks for stopping by xx

Fantastic summer weather!!!!

The last few days have been so lovely, the temperature seems to be going up and up.  Have had a few days off from work so took the opportunity to take my crochet and a book to the beach.  I must admit you do get some strange looks from people whilst sat there in a bikini crocheting japanese flowers!!!

Each day I have woken up wondering if the weather is going to break, after all it is only April, but we seem to be continnuing with fanstastic weather. 

Although the weather has been so lovely the beaches where I live have been relatively quiet, which is strange as I would have thought that  if you were on holiday in Cornwall and the weather was lovely and you had young children, the best place would be the beach!! But I wasnt complaining, some quiet time.

Yesterday I took a wander down to the waters edge to cool down, and withput really realising I had walked into the sea up to my middle............ dilemma! do I walk back out and look silly or go for it and swim................ I chose the latter, so I can now honestly say that I have been swimming in the sea in APRIL..... and I really recommend it.

Oh well, all for now,
