...................Well apart from letting the air get blue edging on purple because the post which this is a repeat of, more or less of, (now a copy of because I copied and saved it!) I spent an hour typing and sorting photographs and adding links at 8.30am Friday morning when I published all I got was the title and the comment box! I did this three times in all! I gave up in the end feeling extremely frustrated, three hours wasted trying to blog! I gave up in the end went and watched a DVD and did some knitting watched the DVD but got frustrated with the knitting undoing more rows than knitting them! Why change things that work?
Now I would like to thank my wonderful husband who sorted me out! You won't believe how grateful I am
Anyway "What Have I Done This Week.............
On Friday the first my friend Jackie had a day in Minehead after she milked the cows on her farm. We had lunch and then we went to my local nursery where she bought some herbs for her herb patch. Saturday we didn't venture far. After doing the mundane things like washing and ironing, we cut the back lawn. In the afternoon we went to a boot fair. We hadn't been to this particular boot fair for while but quite honestly there wasn't much there for me!
Sunday I sat and watch the River Pageant and did some more knitting.
On Monday I made a Fruit cake and Victoria Sponge and some Scones. Our good friends David and Jane came for the afternoon which was lovely. Peter rang during the afternoon asking us to pop over to reconnect his cooker, and to help hang some curtain poles. Any excuse to see Caitlin and Liam!

Wednesday I added to my collection of vintage magazines. I received my recent purchases from Milly & Dottie Two more magazines. My mum had a few of these which I loved reading from a very early age. It was these magazines that gave me my enjoyment of needlework, knitting and crochet. I have added a few more since this photo was taken
I started making the banner for our Vintage Fayre. I will show everyone when Sally has seen it.

When I took a few crumbs down to the bird feeder him and his Sparrow friends were all squawking at me, jumping around from branch to branch! It wasn't me I didn't do it!
Saturday and Sunday was spent sorting the stuff we have here for the fayre. Its an excuse to get the conservatory-cum-shed sorted YET again but this time we have a date! Normally we say put that to one side for a boot fair but either we don't feel like doing one - or weather is against us - or we are just not ready because the stuff that has been sorted is buried again!
Yesterday we went to Taunton for a few bits and pieces for the fayre. So this is my catch-up since the first of June!
