yes we posted loads of postcards from this box - including one to ourselves! We went to Cardiff with both sets of grandparents - didn't end too well though as my Dad "stumbled" outside the castle walls on the last day and Mom and I ended up spending 7.5 hours with him whilst he was attended to by ambulance crew and then in casualty having about 30 stitches and 3 xrays - still, four stitches came out on Thursday and the rest are disolvable so he is ok now and doesn't have to eat just soup anymore!
We then went on to Torquay (just the four of us) where we walked into Cockington (one of my favourite places in the whole wide world) and the children and I took part in a free screen printing workshop:
can you guess which one is mine?
We then spent a few days in Plymouth staying on the Hoe and I found this in a little antique shop:
it's leather bound and dates from 1891 inside - isnt that lovely neat writing! Am wondering whether this will spur me on to try some art journaling (when I find some spare time!) or whether its just too lovely to slap paint on!
Then we stopped off at Bristol where there was another drama as there was a bomb scare in Cabot Circus which is where our hotel was and we couldn't get into the city for the first couple of hours, but when we did we spent our last day pottering around the shops finishing getting school stuff for the children, including my eldest's new school bag:
can't believe my little boy starts big school in 10 days time - gulp!
If you have followed my journey this far - thank you - and can I just say a big hello to Tiffany - thanks for following me.
Thanks for looking - already drowning under an ironing mountain from Solihull
