Here I am again. It's been a long time I know. I was behind with my ABC/ATC Group so I had to start by making my letter 'N' card, which I have now done and posted. Here it is. 'N' is for 'Naughty but Nice'.All the pictures are of Thorntons' chocolates, red, gold and black for decadence and another 'N' is net.
Now to my UK break. It seemed to fly by this time. The weather was just great. I arrived on Thursday late and just had time to take 2 photos of the hugely grown Kitty!
She was a bit surprised by the flash! It took her a little time to get used to me but she was soon smiling happily.
Jack is as adorable as ever and we played lots of great games. He came into my bedroom on Friday morning before school, which was lovely. Sam's Mum Rene looks after Kitty while Jack is at school so that Sam can help Jason out in the office. He needs it as they are so busy.
Rougham Air Show
On the Saturday, we went to the first day of the Heart Radio Air Show at Rougham, not far from J and Sams' house. Although there weren't many planes on the Saturday, we still had a great day. It was dull in the morning but sunny and windy in the afternoon and we all caught a bit of sun. Kitty slept most of the time and Jack went on rides, watched the planes, played acrobatics with his Dad and generally charged about! Here are a few photos from the day:
This is one of the traction engines that were there. It pulled that super little green caravan. I wanted it!
This lad in an army helmet too big for him, was riding one of the vehicles that rode into the show ring. I wish I could send it to his parents!
Jack didn't really understand why these 2 men were dressed as women! They did some clowning about in the ring but mostly just wandered about making people laugh.
One of the light aircraft at the show. This one was very colourful. Some of them joined in the display later.
We spent ages mooching around the traders' stalls while Jack couldn't wait to get on the fair rides. Here he is enjoying a 'rocket train' trip.
Jack at the bottom of a slide. Don't you love the spelling on the sign? You'd think someone would tell them!
Jack drove this 'Little Rover' jeep. Well, the lady had to run round with him and steer as he was too busy looking at what was going on around him! Here he goes over the 'jump'.
Such concentration the second time round. Do click on it to enlarge. You can see his expression then.
I had fun with the netting:
One of my favourite shots of the day. Jack the Hat.
I needed a much bigger lens for the air display! This jet made a great noise and performed some super tricks. Jack was impressed.
The wartime Dakota was easier to catch as it was larger and slower. I like this shot of it coming over the trees.It didn't fly into the tent!
This microlight was a bit of a contrast! It was so windy, I wouldn't have liked to fly in it. Most of the war planes were coming on the Sunday, but we were going somewhere else. I did see the spitfire fly over Jason's house though, from the garden, on its way to the show.
Jack on Jason's shoulders.
Kitty with Sam and Jason, after her feed in a 'tea' tent. What a smiler.
Jack climbed up Jason's body with his feet, then stood on his shoulders!! His Daddy is very strong.'Look Gran, No Hands'!
I loved the colour of this blow up slide. Jack enjoyed himself on it too. I made a montage of his time on there. This is my favourite:
We were about ready to go home but decided to have an ice cream first. Everyone was tired:
I love this shot of Jason and Jack walking back to the car and the one below with his Mum.
Jack was a bit distracted by the cut corn!
Back at home, there was a hedgehog in the garden, he'd been spotted a few times before:
Jack and I filled in the time before bed making this very very long snake out of pebbles! Jack is down at the head end.
Daddy looked after Kitty.
Jack decided at the show that he was going to marry me when he grew up. No matter how we tried to explain that he couldn't he was determined! I said he might have to dig me up first!
Here is the quilted wall hanging that I made for Kitty, hanging on her bedroom wall.
One thoroughly stuffed Kitty ready for her bed. She sleeps 12 hours most nights! A huge change from Jack, who's always been pretty random in his sleeping patterns. He is much better now though, but does wake up around 7am, whereas Kitty goes through until 9 or later.
I think that's enough for one post. I had a great day, as did we all, though we were jolly tired by the evening.
