Vintage Magazines

Few weeks ago I made the decision to sell my vintage magazines.  

Before anyone asks it was an easy decision to make because I am keeping my favourite ones which are the Needlewoman.  I find them the most interesting I get  more use from them.

The sale of the magazines are here

Our Holiday........Part 2

This time last week we were coming to the end of our holiday. Despite the weather, rain hail, thunder..... Apart from spending time in Dartmouth, visited Dittisham, a place we know well, we visited Bygones and The Model Village in Babbacombe near Torquay a place I first visited with my grandparents when it first opened in 1963 and we took our boys in the eighties. We also visited the House of Marbles where there is a very large fascinating marble run


The photos are here

Our Holiday....... part 1

This time last week we were half way through our holiday. Despite the weather, rain hail, thunder..... We spent time in Dartmouth, visited Dittisham, a place we know well as my parents lived there for nearly twenty years.
We even saw a wedding and the bride and groom travelled up the river dart to their wedding reception, on the way the groom opening a bottle of champagne with a sword.

We were very disappointed with Totnes. We went to Totnes on a Tuesday when the locals were suppose to dress up in Elizabethan costume, there was precisely three people dressed up!

I hope you don't get bored......... Make a cuppa and look at the pictures

They are here
