Visit to Coleton Fishacre

For the un-informed this house was the home of the D'Oyley Carte family( of Gilbert and Sullivan fame!).
The visit was with the Dart Valley home ed group. Julia and I enjoyed meeting new folks, and I braved the narrow Devon lanes in the van! The weather was mixed but we found a dry place to eat our lunch before the rain stopped in time for a walk. Lovely garden and fantastic views.

Hannah's visit

it was lovely to have Hannah staying for a week with us. it gave us the chance to catch up with all her news, plan Christmas visits and book a cottage for an Easter holiday with her, Dan and the baby!
We also went out in Jireh( see Phil's blog) and had a trip to Dartmoor and the river Dart at Dartmeet.As you can see from the pictures we had a great time.

My Birthday jumper-completed.

This lovely green wool( a mixture of alpaca and wool) was purchased with birthday money from my kind mother-in-law. The pattern was from'Knitty' an online knitting magazine. The jumper was knitted on circular and double ended needles, from the top down!
I am looking forward to wearing it this winter.
