Fun Filled Days Part 2

DD2 and I went shopping and out for a lovely lunch on Friday. Then after picking the children up from school we went to surprise my LS for her birthday.
We were a little late as we got side tracked but finally found the venue where we needed to be.
It was so nice to see BOTH my sister’s and give my LS her quilt on her special day.


Now I can show you the secret quilt I have been working on for ages!!!!  The house I stitched on the quilt resembles the home we all grow up in.

Saturday we went to the beach. It was just a beautiful sunny day, perfect for a swim.


Afterwards it was off to buy some shoes. We could hear giggling from the kids and discovered them trying on shoes.


It keep them amused while we browsed. LOL


Sunday evening DD2 and I went out for dinner and then to see Billy Connelly. We laughed so much our cheeks were sore.

In the evenings we stitched and I finished my Easter Swaps.
