Bearing Gifts

My daughter and grandson visited this weekend and came bearing gifts, a beautiful chest of drawers. 

I have given it a temporary home in the entrance hall until I decide where to put it.  I have dressed it with a vintage hat stand , a couple of my winter hats and a plaque.
I love it already and think it could be useful to have somewhere in the hall to store all those hat, scarves and gloves that end up in a basket at the bottom of the stairs.  Time will tell...
We had a wonderful time crafting together and working on the plans for the wedding whilst Bertie was in bed.
Bertie too had a holiday of his dreams doing all of his favourite things.

2 sessions at Tiny Tots Village, the soft play centre once on Saturday and another session before heading home on Sunday.
A trip to the park for a run around and to feed the ducks.

Sandcastles built on the beach and a ride on the donkey.

Finally a trip to the fairground.  A wonderful weekend had by one and all, some wonderful memories to treasure.  Hope you all had a good weekend.
See you soon.
