Weekending

I had little visitors over the weekend, so we spent quality time around the dining room table making and chatting and of course eating.  We had a wonderful time with the sequins, that we were all very careful with, picking out the beautiful array of colours and shapes.  Such a lot of fun for pennies.



 
The girls are so excitable at the moment we are only 29 days to our holiday to Walt Disney World, Florida.  They are beside themselves with excitement, it is such a joy to watch them and to be part of it all.  We have made dining reservations and have a planned itinerary with fast passes now been added so we don't have to queue as long for some of our favourite rides.  It is wonderful to watch our daughter relive some of her own memories of holidays as a child and pass on the magic to her own little family.
 
The girls loved their ponchos and were very willing models.
 

 
It was a beautiful sunny day Sunday although a little chilly, so pop on your jacket and have a stroll along the dyke with us.  I will let the pictures do the talking.
 



















 
 
Hope you enjoyed our little stroll?  Take the weight off your feet and I will put the kettle on.  Of course there is cake, the walk has worked up an appetite. 

See you soon.

  13. Aw, how cute making butterflies with the granddaughters! I love their ponchos as well. I'm sure you are getting excited for your trip. Are you mentally packing yet? I need a sit down myself which I promised myself today at work. Too busy lately and need to sit in my recliner and rest a bit with a cup of tea, which I'm boiling water for right as I type. And a delicious cookie to go with it. Take care my friend!
