Here I am!

I have finally crawled out of my little hibernation session and emerged from under my cosy stone into my beautiful bright and sparkly bubble once more.

Life has been trundling on by in my absence as is to be expected.  We've had a few lovely days out including a visit to Exeter Quay...

It was one of the few sunny days we have had of late, we even had ice-creams!

We also had a brilliant visit to Teignmouth Museum.  I do like visiting such places with groups of friends, but sometimes just having time with my kids to look at the various objects on display is so much more rewarding.  We loved trying on hats...

Looking at the displays (and trying all the hands-on stuff)...

The teens have dressed up as "Chav's" for their youth club meeting...

We have had various hair colours...

Smiles and cuddles have obviously been in abundance as per usual...

We have walked along seafronts and been in awe of nature...

and admired true beauty in the world around us...

Lapbooking has been done in dressing gowns...

I have taken photographs...

and we have had a fabulous time on the Moors...

I've even managed to find time to do a bit of creating.  I'm knitting a cardigan for Taisia as she is in desperate need and money is in short supply...

and I've been crocheting, YES CROCHETING (!!!) a blanket...

All in all life has been a big fat down, now picking back up to being fully wonderful again.  Oh it's good to be back!
