And so she's back

from outer space.

well Swansea really. A lot more relaxed than before I went!
Thanks so much for all your notes of condolence. I really appreciate it. It was good actually to go away so soon after losing Dutch. I still think I hear him round the house but not being hear immediately afterwards makes it more bearable.

Well I won't bore you with all the details of the hols - some of them will be coming to layouts near you shortly anyway. But here are some highlights.
Cousins getting together - having fun despite the age differences
Time at Caswell beach and caves
Cardiff bay
for Dr Who exhibition (not as good as it might be but still cool)
and boat trip
traditional trip to Verdis (this is cinnamon flavour with hazelnut crunch, yum!)
and walking in the sunshine afterwards
meeting up with old young friends
and old old friends (I'll send the pics pronto Sue).
Plus theatre trips and pub quizzes, swimming, going back in time at a Manor House (brilliant), mummifying a dummy (pulling his innards out and everything. Poor Jeffrey) and chilling. Bliss.
And notice the sunshine. All week. Apart from the last day - hence the trip to the Egypt exhibition.

I'll share more of my crafting news tomorrow but leave with a glimpse of my design collective class book that I did over the weekend using scrummy Scarlet's Letter paper from Basic Grey. All about our dog. Sniff. it was good therapy really. And I realised how few photos we have of him. Pet owners - take photos immediately!

I've been lurking on your blog for a little while now and thought it was time I said hello. I love your mini book about your beloved dog, what a lovely way to celebrate his life. Carole xx

Great to catch up with you again and hear all about your Swansea trip - sounds like it did you good - the pics are fab and I bet you'll be scrapping like made with that lot.

The book for Dutch is lovely.
