off I go to....

Hawane Farm to be exact! I'm flying this evening!
As I don't normally get much further than Majorca it's really
quite an adventure for me. I will be going with my Mum and staying
with a couple of her friends that live and work there.
I will be getting creative with the kids as well as hopefully
creating a mural, so hopefully I will have lots to show on my blog
when I return in October!

Have a great couple of weeks everyone!
take care.

home for the weekend

This weekend I've been at's been a while since that has happened.
Was very nice to potter, hanging about with my nephews, eating takeaway, reading and cooking my first successful cake ready for my husbands birthday!
I can't quite believe I've made an edible cake!

I also popped round to Bagthorpe Gardens with our new neighbours....
the gardens/allotments are just next door to my house....
it feels much further than the mile or so we actually are from the
city when wandering around there. Very peaceful!

A very wholesome weekend....
a big contrast from my husband's weekend. He was at Bestival dressed as Lady Gaga!

the last wedding of the year!

It's been wedding year for us this year...we've had 7! They have all been so so brilliant!
Lots and lots of fun! It's so so special to see close friends and family get married.
Here's some pics that I took at my sister in laws wedding last weekend.

All their planning was certainly worth it.
The wedding service was very special, complete with a super gospel choir.
There were tears a plenty!
The marquee looked fantastic, complete with a dressing up box, kissing booth, cake table. There was also a raffle, barn dance, a pub quiz and singing from the very talented Mary Leay!

It was a perfect day and I'm so proud to call the new Mr and Mrs Leay family.
