I seem to have survived the night and woken up feeling exactly the same - the new 40. Thanks for all your lovely words - I did indeed have a great day and to top it off it is raining here today. Wonderful. Sad to say Darlington Estate has gone down the gurgler - well it had yesterday. We have been there a few times in the past for others birthdays but yesterday it wasn't busy - is that a sign? - and everything was rather mediocre. I would score it about 10 out of 20 I think. Shame but there are still lots of lovely restaurants around - maybe we have been spoilt? Still deciding what tagine to cook tomorrow though. It is doing its 24 hour water soak as per instructions. Let you know.
I shall be doing my draw on Friday when we go to Bruce's to watch the rugby -I would have photographed the basket with the 60 goodies in it but will tomorrow so you can see what someone will score.
A little play for another page for my Stonehaven book in the style of holey moley -above is the front cover - those are brown metallic beads on the side not red. The fourth and final page is hand sitching so that will take me a bit longer and then I will attach eerything - not quite decided how yet but it will appear before too long.
This is a round stone page with hanging stones....
and this is the back cover with some tiny knitted inserts.
Now we are off to Fremantle to see what we can see - last of our Easter break
