Were did the weekend go to?

I guess it always does when you're having fun. We set off for Hay-on-Wye on Saturday morning, weaving our way through the countryside which made such a pleasant change, rather than travelling on the motorway. Although, there is a downside to going on the little rural roads, poor Charlotte suffers from travel sickness which isn't nice for her, luckily we were nearly at Hay before she was feeling really rough.

What a lovely little place Hay is, I just loved all the book and vintage shops. I managed to pick up some old books, maps, music sheets, buttons and some cotton reels. It's a place were you can mooch around and has a very relaxed atmosphere. I shall be going back!!!.

Look what I found, buttons galore!!

We saw this viaduct at Ledbury, not a brilliant photo as it was taking from the car whilst moving.

As we all know it's Mother's Day this coming Sunday. Which has got me thinking about my relationship with Charlotte and also with my own Mum. So last week I made this canvas of me and Charlotte, using the saying 'A Mother holds her daughters hand for a while but her heart forever'. I know she is still young but as she gets older she needs me just a little bit less as she gets more and more independent. Anyway I have another busy week ahead with Parents Evening on Thursday and yet another meeting at school on Wednesday. I have nothing planned tomorrow morning so I plan to craft and hopefully create a layout.

Take care all.


Arrgghh this spacing is driving me crazy, please excuse the gaps between the text and photos.
