Christian HE group

I belong to two groups( Dart Valley HE group and Devon Christian HE). Because Julia is out every thursday participating in the Arts Awards group( bronze award moderation is looming!) we don't go to evey meeting. Actually there are three groups! (Teignbridge and Torbay).
Anyway, if we wnt to everything we would never be at home(except maybe on tuesday!) and we would also be a lot poorer because of how much diesel costs! We pick and chose what suits us and this week we went on a visit to Compton Castle(near Paignton), weather wasn't great but was to good to catch up with folks and meet new faces.

Sew Mama Sew giveaway day

One of the things that is great about the internet is all the creative stuff going on- to inspire and encourage, and provide great materials and patterns.
Each year( or maybe more often) Sew Mama Sew coordinate a huge number of give-aways from various crafty bloggers.This is my second year(time?) of commenting on various blogs in the hope of winning some crafting goodies.One that I would particularly like to win this year is from SewTakeAHike!! she has a gift voucher to a great store SuperBuzzy, which has lots of Japanese stuff( who would have guessed that they like sewing so much!).
Any way here is my post, it is my third chance in the draw! I really hope I win!

Here is the link to the sewtakeahike blog ( not very good with all this technical stuff!)

A busy week!

The week started with a phone call from Daniel and a trip to Totnes to collect him from the station.Monday took us to one of our favourite places- Little Dartmouth and its rocks, caves and little bays.

Daniel rigged up his ropes from the balcony and had everyone (except me and Sophia!) going up and down!Tuesday saw Phil and Daniel out in the kayaks.Then on wednesday I collected Hannah and Sophia from the station.           

We had a lovely time all together,Lydia insisted on a Watson children picture!

Daniel went back to Portsmouth on the Thursday and on Friday Hannah and Sophia joined Phil, Julia and myself on a home-ed group trip to Greenway House, a beautiful place to visit on the lovely River Dart.
