We took Harry and Sam (GS's ) to the cinema on Thursday to see Monster Uni- we all enjoyed it including our granddaughters and their mummy. Afterwards we went to our younger son's house (he has the girls) and had a party tea for Sam. Had a pirate themed party. Sarah (D.I.L.) also organised a scavenger hunt and masks to make. Had a wonderful time.
On Friday DH took the boys to a local park where they were able to play cricket, football and go on some climbing equipment etc. They also had a picnic. later that evening we took them to Frankie and Benny's for tea. Not sure I would go again but they enjoyed it.
Saturday was a trip to another park, another picnic and paddling in the stream. Forgot to take fishing nets but in a way I was glad as all the kids were catching little fish and putting them in water bottles- poor fish. Afterwards we popped to see my Auntie who lives nearby so that she could see the boys.
Sam - thinking :-)
Not sure what Harry was doing - :-)

In the stream looking for treasures.
A bit of skills practice. Sam is actually a very good footballer.
Saying hello to Auntie and reluctantly being hugged for the photo :-)
During those few days DH also started to teach Harry the basics of chess and we also made and painted dinosaur fridge magnets.
All too soon it was time to meet their mummy and daddy. We met at Denby Visitor Centrephoto from internet
where we had lunch and had a short tour of part of the factory ( most of it closed for two weeks for holiday) We all made a little pottery frog and then decorated some pottery. A great time. Then it was time to say goodbye. It's strange when you get home- you are tired but the house is so quiet and feels very empty- especially at night knowing they are not tucked up in our spare rooms. :-)
Looking forward to seeing them again at the end of August when they come here on their return from their holiday in France.
Yesterday I had a yummy parcel in the post. I'd seen this business on Facebook
I really like their products. This their ethos
why have to purchase large quantities, when you only need a little. We believe you should be able to choose just the right amount for your project, which is why we offer our pretty fabric and trims in a variety of sizes and amounts.
I was looking for felt to start making something from the book I won (see earlier post) and they do a sample card of all the colours. So I sent for that plus a felt bundle - (Candy Felt) and some gorgeous lace. Their service is brilliant.
Aren't they gorgeous. Their fabrics are lovely as well. I shall definitely be ordering more.
Well that's it for now! Have a great weekend. Back soon.
