So we got back late on Friday evening and I felt very tired ( physically and emotionally drained) and did very little on Saturday. Sunday saw us going to see our youngest son and granddaughters. A lovely time in the garden having ice cream, playing and painting pebbles.
Yesterday ( it is Tuesday evening at the moment) saw me doing a few chores and then crafting , preparing for Card and a Cuppa tomorrow. Classes at the Centre finish this week for the Summer holidays so no more there until September - though not sure yet how that will pan out as they want to change the arrangement :-(
Today more crafting I needed a few cards for family and friends so have been doing those. Last night I went to a WI meeting. It is ok but I feel they could do so much more.
So my work space tonight - it will be the same tomorrow
Well hope to visit a lot more of you this week. why not join in , just click on link on my sidebar to get the details.
As I said earlier, DH and I went to see Mum. On our arrival I was pleased to see that she seemed quite well despite a fall she had on the previous Saturday - thankfully no broken bones this time. We stayed in a lovely B&B not far from the seafront. You could easily walk into Sidmouth - we crossed a wooden bridge over the River Sid and walked along The Byes. On the Friday we walked in the other direction - just beautiful alongside the river. We'd hoped to spot a Kingfisher but it did not oblige.
On the Thursday we took Mum out to a lovely hotel on the seafront and we had tea and cake. She was tired afterwards but seemed to enjoy it.
On Friday we had lunch with her at the Care Home and stayed until about 6pm. Had afternoon tea on the decking outside her room. I washed and styled her hair , walked around the decking with her and sorted out a few things. It passed very quickly. I am hoping to go for a bit longer the next time. We were sad to say goodbye to each other.
Loved this display by our table.
The River Sid, gently bubbling along at this point.
where we stayed - a lovely house. It's garden went down to the river.
Looking along the front on Wednesday evening. I think everyone was watching the football match :-)
