Posted Postcards.........




Some postcards and an ATC already on their journeys ....It's funny I was making lots of reds and orange cards in Winter and now moved onto the blues in Summer ....my theory must be right then that I go to warmer pallette when I'm cold and cooler pallette ...etc......x

Happy Birthday Ryan...Happy Solstice.....Happy Monday (not the group)......



AWWW...Cute ...I remember those days as if they were yesterday.....
Please note the hat ....



Still wearing a hat .......



Part of the clan ......






It is my eldest son's 31st birthday today .......can't believe where the time has gone .... he was born on the Solstice ...the longest day in more ways than one !!!....Happy Birthday Ryan.... love you .....xx

We went round to his place yesterday for a double birthday BBQ as it was his girlfriend Cassi's birthday yesterday too. He has just moved out to the sticks in a lovely typical English country village. The row of cottages were part of converted stables. They look out onto a lovely communal grass area then at the front is an old churchyard and church .....very quiet !!!.........perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
Happy Solstice.......xx

Nearly the Solstice.........


Not long to the Summer Solstice.....wish I was going I have never been to the solstice even though Stonhenge is only about 30 miles away ....maybe next year .......it's the only time they allow people into the stone circle ....when I was a child you could picnic amongst them but now when you visit the stones are protected by a rope circle to stop people touching them ...OUTRAGEOUS .....I am a stone toucher as well as a tree hugger ...still you can touch the stones at Avebury.....xx

Ruby's ATCs and Singing Sophie in Sherborne ...oh and a Sombrero...



Ruby would like to know if anyone would like to swap ATCs with her. She has made 5 for swaps ....my camera has run out of battery though and my phone has started taking strange coloured photos any ideas why ????so will post pics of actual cards when all equipment playing ball again ............She is just too cute in the hat and clip on earrings that we got from the jumble sale ...

Ruby being creative ....
video..

Drove a 150 mile round trip to watch and listen to Sophie singing in Sherborne Abbey last night . The group were singing Rachmaninov's Vespers by candlelight(all in Russian too ...)It was quite amazing in such a beautiful setting..... Ruby came with me ...........although I'm sure it wasn't her chosen music style she was really good and listened for over an hour ...well done that girl or girls should I say....the sat nav took me a strange way home through the heart of Dorset lots of narrow country roads ........quite picturesque in the day I guess but not ideal at 12 O' clock at night......sorry my camera's battery was exhausted when I went to take some pics of the event ...story of my life ....had to use my phone had the cheap seats as you can tell!!!.........






Augustus or Artoogus as Ruby calls him......sporting a fine sombrero that we got at the jumble sale .....

along with a bag full of wonderful colourful scraps of fabric look out for new work ......it was a blog givaway that I was so lucky to win thank you Heloise ...xx


On the road again


Yes Augustus and us have arrived back from my beloved Wales....he had such a fab time that he has now taken a welsh double barrelled surname no less !!!!We went to a Rugby match in the capital of Wales....he did his best to sing the Welsh national anthem but it was a bit difficult......we have both decided that we will go to welsh classes to brush up on the language ....he had a ride on a horse and stayed in a caravan in a field ....went to a horse show and even drove the car.........oh and I nearly forgot the most important bit Augustus FELL IN LOVE ....with a pink haired tattooed one eyed mermaid ...
He did have a love rival though (see pics below) but I think Augustus is far more handsome ....we had to leave her though but I am getting in touch with her person so watch this space .....
Meeting Daz
Meeting Comet
He wanted to be one of Bramble's pups
Oh Heck Comet's a big horse....

The love rival ........!!!


COME ON WALES....................!!



Meeting Llew...........


bit of culture in Cardiff........




Back on the farm........( he had to wear his Welsh flag like the supporters)


Having a rest with Daz and Kirsty my niece..........
My Dad, brother (on Comet), Kirsty and me and the dogs of course ....
