I hope you had a great Easter weekend. We have had a lovely couple of weeks off and hasn't the weather just been the best. The first week of the Easter hols was spent down at my parents, visiting friends and generally catching up with family. Last Sunday we set off from Mums heading for Windsor were we spent a lazy afternoon by the river and just chilling in the park. We had booked into a Premier Inn (at a cheap rate) at Heathrow so we could easily go off on Monday morning to Legoland.

We had lunch in this little cafe.

We cashed in our Tesco clubcard vouchers and ordered 3 tickets for Legoland. It is so much cheaper to do it that way and most of the people in front of us had done the same, as it is so expensive to go into these places. Les and I had been to Legoland before we had Charlotte so it was great this time going with a child, although she didn't want to go on any of the water rides!!

It's hard to tell from this photo that it's all made out of Lego.

I loved this little fellow, which was on the crazy golf course.

Crazy was definately the right word when this little one was attempting to play golf!!!

The clown was my favourite figure and thankfully in the shop you could make him up.

On Tuesday we headed down to Bridport, which was a bizarre little place, but very picturesque. The weir and marshland was on one side of the road, and then you crossed over to find the sea and Harbour. Again another warm and sunny day, sitting eating fish and chips at the seaside is just the best thing ever, love it, although my waist line doesn't. haha

In the afternoon we went to a little place called Broadoak were we had booked into a real working farm for a couple of days. Again the views were breathtaking and of a night time it was so quiet and peaceful, but by nine o'clock it was pitch black outside, because of course there was no street lighting.

This is the view we woke up to.

The last photo (promise) is of Charlotte on the beach at Lyme Regis.

I am running out of time and do have some 'She' art girls to share with you as well as a layout, I know I can't believe I have created so much over the weekend. I definately think we need more Bank Holidays for us crafters.

I will be back in a couple of days to share my stuff with you all.

As always thanks for stopping by.


P.S I don't know what is going on with this spacing it is driving me crazy. If anyone knows what is causing this leave me a message, pleeasssseee.

Another week has gone....

by, I think I must be getting old as the weeks just seem to disappear. Last week saw parents evening. We were able to look through the work Charlotte has been doing and the amount is unbelievable, these children work so hard. Her report was very good, and is gaining confidence all the time, she also likes to help organise her teacher by doing jobs for her.

I've had a few projects on the go, but to be honest aren't really pleased with any of them and am not prepared to even show the layout on here, unlike me really but I just seemed to have lost all enthusiasm at the moment. This is one of them, that isn't really finished but I'm just left it as it is for the time being.

The 'She workshop' starts on Monday and I'm looking forward to watching some of the videos and techniques, although I won't be able to play along as I will be at my parents house and need to travel really light this trip :( So I'm off to Mum's on Saturday for a week. We are then taking Charlotte to Windsor and Legoland which she is looking forward to, Les and I went around 9 years ago and had a fab time. She is going to love all the models and buildings built of Lego, I'm not sure whether she will want to go on any of the rides, but we will see how it goes. From there we are spending a couple of nights on a farm just outside Lyme Regis, it looks fab, you can help them collect the eggs in the morning as well as watching them milk the cows. It should be an experience to say the least!!. The real reason for going is that I want to go fossil hunting again, I have been before up North and it's such a buzz, this time I have booked us onto a tour and then plan to go independently at a different beach.

This Friday is the last day of term (thank goodness) and as it's Easter they have asked the children to make a decorated bonnet. This is what we have come up with, naturally I have helped quite a bit, but I'm pleased with it, and she looks so cute in it.

I hand stitched the little chicks on so hopefully they will stay put.

Right be good everyone.
