...and we're back!

Oh my goodness, that was a long break.  When I last blogged regularly it was early summer and now it's autumn.

I've hardly sewed, hardly blogged and haven't commented for nearly 3 months.  We spent August at my mum's in England and had an amazing time - the weather was kind for once (the warmest summer for 7 years). While I normally try not to do too much on the computer when we visit, my laptop died anyway and I only got a new one today.  Hopefully, normal service can now resume.

So what did we get up to while we were away? Well here's a whistlestop tour.

There were days at the beach - sunny and rainy.


We had a couple of days in Cornwall visiting Port Isaac, Polzeath, Padstow and Boscastle


We spent the bank holiday weekend in London during which time we queued...and queued and...well queued!


There were visits to the natural history museum, the maritime museum where Zaki indulged his inner pirate and the rare breeds country park.


...and well England was just really pretty...and green.


We're now back...and it's signifcantly cooler than when we left so here's hoping I can get some sewing done soon. I admit to feeling a little overwhelmed and not knowing really where to begin, let alone where everything is!

Still it feels good to be back...let's hope it's for keeps this time!
