Hi everyone, I had a great few days in Suffolk. We went to a playbarn, shopped, lunched, went out for a ladies night and meal, lunched, had tea..... actually a great deal of eating happened!
Just a few photos to show you. The rest are on Facebook if you're interested.

Sam and I ready to go out for a meal with lots of other ladies. It was great.
My delicious pudding.
Ladies who eat a lot!! I'm right down the far end. It was Sam's birthday on Monday 31st so this was our excuse to celebrate. We went on Saturday night.
On Sunday it was a trip over to Dereham to see Nanny Maureen and Grandad Ivor - this time we ate in a pub! What shall we have today? It was roast dinners all round:
Jack loved his:
And Kitty enjoyed pouring the gravy onto each and every plate with the cute little gravy boats!
We had a quick whizz round some shops, Kitty rode in the trolley with Jack pushing - a recipe for disaster! Sam behind.
Kitty at home with a basket hat!
While Jack played on his space hopper.

On Monday, guess what? We went for lunch! This time Jack was at school so it was just Sam, Jason, Kitty, Rene (Sam's Mum) and me. We went to the Harvester and I enjoyed a superb fish and chips. Kitty wasn't really hungry so Jason quickly eat his dinner then entertained her inside and outside:
Here they were dancing to the background music!
Sam had a 'WI' for her birthday and we all had fun playing on it. Sam and I both enjoyed the tennis. I can play much better on the WI than in real life!
My photo of the trip is this one of Sam and Kitty having a love in:
I left early on Tuesday morning. At Shannon airport I waved to Jim in the queue for the plane I had just arrived on - he was heading to Worthing for a couple of days! It was Thursday before I picked him up back at Shannon!
The new doll for Ann Broderick has now been finished. I'll probably take it to her tomorrow (Monday):
Meet Bridget (as she's Irish).
Here is the back view. I put a little plait and bobble on the end of her hat for a change.
My new table
I never seemed to have any space in my office to work so Jim converted an ironing board, which I don't use for ironing as it's just too big, into a work table. I love it!
He's fixed a board to the top and it still has the pointed section of the ironing board, which I can use to iron the seams on the dolls' dresses, etc. What a clever boy! I have another order for a rag doll so I'm just sorting out the material.
I think that's about all the news apart from the incessant rain we've had for a few days. And lots of wind.
Happy Monday everyone.
Oh, the 'River of Stones' has finished and I have submitted 10 of mine for inclusion in the book they are going to make of them. I'll be happy if one is picked. xx
