Happy events make a happy blogger.....

So sorry that I haven't written for a while, haven't really got into the habit of blogging yet and must have obviously been busy enough to forget.

There have been lots of social events which is really enjoyable, especially during the day when the sun is I don't miss going to work one little bit :o)

I went with my darling daughter and three grandchildren plus a friend of the girls to an interactive art installation for children. It was called The Cloth Place and everything there was made of fabric and the children were told to explore and play freely. So the three girls worked their way through the farmyard which included almost half size cloth cows, pigs and more. For some reason they thought the rats were dirty enough to gather up and put in the washing machine then peg out on the line by their tails, very funny!!! Upstairs was the cafe with yummy cloth cakes and by the hot counter they cooked and served me material bacon, eggs and chips. Then they donned hats and served behind the butcher's, greengrocer's and fish counters. All this kept them totally entertained for a couple of hours, some of which I spent with LittleOne, just finding our own space to sit while children charged around noisily. A great day out.

Met up with the ex-work team for a lunch at our favourite riverside pub and it was so nice to catch up with their news. We've already written the next meet-up into our diaries.

Spent a Sunday at our largest town centre park for the annual summer Music Day, this was also with my darling daughter and all four grandchildren as Sool was performing there.

I've done some gardening this week with the help of Olympian and Comedian, think they worked harder than I did though!

Today I finally finished sorting out all the 'house clearance' stuff and it should all be gone to the various charities by the end of next week.

And tomorrow I'm at another of the parks for another summer event where I will be exhibiting some of my artwork and helping to man the stand run by the art group I go to........hope the rain holds off!

This isn't everything of course, but I've run out of time to write anymore as I've another pair of baby trousers to make out of the sleeves of a no longer needed jumper, so as you can see I've been busy and it's all been relaxed fun - just the way life should be :o)
