At last, we have summer! The weather has been glorious all this week and is set to continue, at least until the weekend.
It is a wonderful year for apple blossom, there are masses of it everywhere and the local cider makers are very pleased.
I have been neglecting my blog and all of you recently, I do apologise.
There hasn't been any stitching going on, instead lots cleaning, painting, generally getting ready for this:
Yes, it is time for a change, they call it "downsizing". We say "time for a new challenge".
We have enjoyed our time in the country for nearly 20 years, but now we are ready to move closer to the civilisation; shops, bus stops, library.....and into a smaller house, with a smaller garden
It looks like a buyer for our house has been found and we are now starting to look for a new home,
not an easy task. Moving into a smaller house will mean having to dispose of some our treasured furniture. More to the point, will there be enough space for all my stuff?
There was lots a viewing of houses yesterday, more to do tomorrow. No time to sew...
So, I will at least share with you some pictures from last week's visit to Barrington Court, where DD, grandchildren and I had a lovely picnic.
