My Weekend

I had had such a busy weekend it seems to have disappeared in a flash. Yesterday my Dad, sister and nephew came up to visit for the day. It was great to see them all. We didn't do anything too exciting a quick trip to town and that was about it but it was nice to spend a few hours in their company.

Today, well this morning Mark and I ventured out. We were planning on a walk in the woods but we hadn't reckoned on the torrential downpour we had last night. We got only about quarter of a mile into the walk and it was just too muddy so we turned round and came back. Instead we did a quick visit to West Kennet Long Barrow it was bitterly cold though so we didn't hang around too long.

This afternoon I have been working on my meme item to send to Violet it's nearly done but of course even when it's done I won't be able to share any pictures until she receives it. Actually I am really pleased with the way it us turning out, I think by the time it's done I'll not want to give it away so I may have to make another for me!

I don't have any pictures to share from my weekend adventures (and I've lent my compact digital camera to my sister so I'll be relying on Mark to provide the pics for my blogging over the next couple of weeks). I do hate to leave a post pictureless though so just for fun I'm sharing a picture of the doll I bought myself while we were holidaying in Corfu. She has a porcelain face and long lovely flowing cheesecloth robes. My Mum was the doll collector, it's not particularly my thing but I just fell in love with this one.
