A Brilliant Week....

26th September 2016

My two gorgeous girls travelled back to Blackpool with me, we had brilliant weather and it was so good having Alba here.....



....first 'paddle'...


....chewing on grandma's thumb!


Alba is such a delight, so interactive, lots of laughs and such a joy to be around. I know, I sound like a very proud grandma!!!

Saturday afternoon I went to our yarn bombing group, the time flew, lots of chat and laughs and we had 2 very young yarn bombers making pompoms...

....we meet in a local coffee shop and have delicious coffee, hot chocolate and cakes.

On Sunday we went on a coach trip with the 'Friends of the Park' to Holmfirth, the village featured in Last of the Summer Wine, Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax, an old mill just outside the village has been converted into a film studio.

There was a Food and Drink Festival which we thoroughly enjoyed, we bought wonderful cheeses, breads and biscuits....



....listened to live music...



.....walked around the village and generally had a very enjoyable day....

....this Heron was standing so still thought it was a model, then it moved its head...


...this made me smile...


...a very old roof...


....a child's throne....




...this made us smile!


Dry stone walls fascinate me...



...views from the top of the village...



....free circus skills for all in the park...


.....beautiful stream running through the village....



...duck's bath-time!


Hoping to do some 'arty stuff' this week.....
