All very child friendly and it wore him out. Later we walked back through the grounds to have a quick visit to the house. There were extensive swathes of wild flower meadows, wonderful trees -

My photo of the house does not do it justice so go to the website link.
Later in the week the 50+ Adventure Club had it's annual BBQ and games evening. Why did we pick May this year as it is usually a July event! It was so cold when the sun started to set.
We barbecued with a great deal of smoke and the rounders were set up though the grass had not been cut and so we had the advantage that the ball did not run on.
However we had a good evening.
I took delivery of this; any ideas?
No, not a board game; this will be really useful for crocheted Granny Squares as they can be pegged out (in a pile) to flatten them. Unfortunately no squares to demonstrate at the moment!!
I have almost finished my latest 'Dreamcatcher' and it needs mounting.
but have started crocheting another project; more about that in due course.
I finished and posted off some surgical gowns and pyjamas for this charity and each time I make for them I think about the child that may get to wear them. I am currently making another batch with fabric donated by Higham Piecemakers.
I went over to Cambridge yesterday to work on my 'Cambridge Allotment'!! My son has dug most of it but one side needed tidying up.

Busy week and weekend ahead. On Saturday the 50+ Adventure Club are going on a coach trip to London, that I have organised. Sunday I am 'support' for my eldest son as he rides in the Tour of Cambridgeshire complete with road closures for drivers. What does 'support' do? Well I am to provide him with his water bottles, with a tablet in them, for re-hydration so I must be at a particular point at a particular time. Hope I find it alright!!
