Rain, rain, go away,

I have just typed a whole long page and lost it ---- arrgghh !

Well we should have been camping on the school field tonight, but due to the weather it has been postponed until September, good job really as we have just had a thunder storm ! So I have managed to clean the house from top to bottom instead.

Off to High Lodge tomorrow night to see Katherine Jenkins, so please keep your fingers crossed for a dry evening for us. I have been busy making picnic food, smoked mackerel pate and meatloaf to go with the breads and cheeses I have brought and some tiffin and coconut ice for dessert!

Have had a great week, we headed off to Bluewater on Sunday, it was very busy as the sales had started, but we still managed a bit of shopping and a nice meal in an Italian restaurant, poor Jonathan ended up having to use his walking stick as his knees are not up to that much exercise, the plan was to stop at Ikea on the way home but we ran out of time.

Then on Tuesday Jonathan had a off !! Shock, horror, it's been a long time since that has happened and it was lovely, he did the school runs with us (which Henry loved) watched Evie and I swim and then we headed into town and had lunch at The Angel, then more shopping. We came home with a nespresso coffee maker that we had been looking at for ages, we have a fantastic kitchen shop in Bury called Marchants where all the staff are so helpful. We now have a redundant Gaggia coffee maker that has joined the ever growing pile of car boot sale stuff in the garage.

I have been doing a little bit of making:

this is a cheap canvas that I have altered using a Jenni Bowlin set of calender cards and is now in my study, and this:

which is a lift of one Anna did for Easy Craft Projects, how cute is that ! It's going to go in Evie's room. Have also made some anniversary/birthday and christening cards ready for the rest of the month.

My best friends son is being christened on Sunday afternoon and I am going to be his God-mother, so exciting, hope to have some photos to share of that next week.

My lovely husband has just arrived home with some beautiful pink roses for me, so I am off to make his dinner. Have a great weekend xx
