Finally ....... a minute to blog

Happy Wednesday folks!

Welcome to the new followers who've joined me recently ....... it's so nice to have you along. Thank you for spending time here.
There's not a lot of craft going on in the old Craft Lane this week I'm afraid ....... I'm enjoying a nice relaxing week spending quality time with the family.

The cottage is beautiful ... a real home from home with everything we could possibly need and more .....


This was waiting for us when we arrived on Friday ...... soooo good with a nice cup of tea after the drive down ...... yum!!
 
Here's bit of a whistlestop tour of the week so far ...... Cheltenham at the weekend  for the Food and Drink Festival.  Lots of good food, fine wine and a 'zebra' burger sat in the park ......


Sunday was Father's Day ..... and we had a lovely day in Bourton-on-the-Water.  The kids took hubby for a drink ....... Cheers!  Happy Father's Day Grandad


We sat by the river after a nice lunchtime meal out  (we went Italian even though they beat England the night before!!!)


And the afternoon was rounded off with a family game of football ........


Could this be the next David Beckham? .......


Monday was a busy day ...... a trip to Thomas Land over at Drayton Manor .......where we rode on buses, cars, planes, troublesome trucks and of course Thomas


We even met the Fat Controller ......


Tuesday we were in Birdland in Bourton, home to, amongst other things,  England's only collection of King Penguins ......


There was also pretty flamingos .....


Owls .......


 And Chris found a friend too .....


A nice refreshing beer by the river while the little man fed the ducks .....


saw the end to another beautiful day in the Cotswolds ..... this is the life!!


Oooh ....... a rare picture - our two together ......


And I think the little man enjoyed his day .....



Well, I think I've gone on long enough about the holiday .... thanks for sticking with me.

I'll leave you with a little crafty something ...... last month's ATC's for the monthly swap that I'm part of.  The theme was ANIMALS .....


I went with frogs .... not my favourite creature but these little guys are soooo cute .....


They're all from a Penny Black 'T' for Transparent set, which I think is called Toadily Happy .... and they've been coloured using a mixture of pencils, Copic Markers and Distress Inks.


The sentiment on the last one is from the Dylusions stamp set ... The Right Words, stamped and then each line cut individually before positioning onto the ATC


Phew!! what a busy few days ..... and the holiday's not over yet.

I'll be back later in the week with the second half of our Cotswolds break.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy your evening.  It's football and a bottle of red here ...... cheers!!

See you again soon
