Sorry I haven't been around

It's been all go here and both David and I have a virus of some sort at the moment so we're feeling a little out of sorts.

Back to our holiday, seems a long way off now, but we had a fabulous time. Here are a few photos from our travels. The first photo our lovely friend Sarn took at Silletts Cottage on our annivesary:This is me with Brighton pier in the background:

A view of Sheffield Park house from the lake, the house is not open to the public but the gardens are and they are beautiful:

I adore this photo of David. It was taken whilst we were on a steam train on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex.

And lastly a photo of me taken in the chocolate shop in Buxton, Derbyshire when took a trip there whilst at my sister's in Cheshire:

The reason we haven't been around is that whilst we were in Cheshire we had a phone call from an estate manager in Suffolk to say she had a bungalow becoming available and were we interested. We took a dash over there and loved the bungalow so will be renting it from 18th July. We still have to sell our house but we have high hopes. In the meantime we are busy sorting out everything we've accumulated over 19 years! Lots of trips to the dump and charity shops. We've finished the bedroom and nearly finished the bathroom so that's good. With us doing it now we won't have to worry so much later on when we do sell the house and it will mean more weekends in Suffolk - yay. Our bungalow is only about a 5 minute drive from the beach so we're very excited about that and it's in a very quiet location.

I haven't done hardly any crafting although I did sort out my crafting stash and bits and pieces I hadn't used for a few years I gave to a nearby secondary school who were very pleased with everything.

That's all for now. I'm rather stuffed up with cold so will rest now, hope to write more soon.

Take care
