Alex and I went to stay with my dad in Okehampton for a couple of very busy days, and came home more tired than when we went, we now need another break to get over that one. I did take some knitting with me to start something but didn't get very far with that either. Now I have had a break perhaps I can now create things. Trouble is I have been reading too many crafting books so now my brain has gone into overdrive again as it works faster than my fingers!
Before I go any further I would like to thank Tracy for my lovely Summer Swap gift. It arrived just before we went away. The name of my blog is a play on words, my surname in fact, but like Tracy our house also resembles the name, or perhaps more like Steptoes Yard in our case but some how I don't think I would have been able to get away with calling my blog that!!! I would love to see what Tracy does with the buttons! Please feel free Tracy to knock on my door when you are next this way...........
On Thursday we packed a few things and travelled to Okehampton to stay with my dad. If you know Okehampton you will know it is a small town on Dartmoor always damp (every time we visit it rains!) and not much there, but I saw these three little piggies. Back in Medieval times pigs were allowed to roam and scavenge the street during daylight hours.
Also on the end of some Terrace Houses is this relief picture.
Mum died too soon.
I read on Sal's blog
We left quite early just really to get a parking space as the car park gets full quite early.
After we looked round the Pannier Market, we went for a hot chocolate, well it was a very damp morning for middle of June! Then we mooched around the town a bit, and went t0 the Vintage Fair and then back for a last look in the market.
I found the Craft shop and made a purchase which I will tell you about another day!
