WOYWW More Summer Visitors !

Another busy weekend - this time entertaining my Mother In Law who flew down on a tiny shuttle plane from Anglesey into Cardiff to stay the weekend with us !
We headed  down to Cardiff Bay after the Airport for a meal together and enjoyed this stunning full moon over the Bay as we headed home - gorgeous !
 We had a busy weekend with various visits and shopping outings - dodging the downpours !
Sunday brought us better weather and a trip to Picton Castle - we love the gardens there but Much Beloved's disabled buggy packed up in the woods leaving us stranded !
Two lovely ladies from Carmarthen helped us manually push our way back to the car - it is so lovely to know there are people out there willing to come to the rescue when you need it !

On Sunday Lynda & Robert came over for supper to celebrate Robert's birthday - we even managed a drink in the garden before the rain rolled in !

So on my desk this week there isn't much action - I did make a couple cards but forgot to photograph them ! I have a couple of cards I bought at Picton - thinking how I can bring them into Journal pages. I have a napkin waiting some creative future as yet uncharted territory ....

.... and the M that I have just base coated over texture page to start for my Auntie ... on the to do list for this weekend !

Have a great crafty week !

  5. Aww hope hubby's buggy is working now. Nice to see such lovely weather in Wales ;) My hubby is from Carmathen and it mostly rains when we visit!. Have a great week x Soojay 24

  6. Hi Ali, it's absolutely certain that anything mechanical will always break down in the most inconvenient place possible. Renews your faith in human nature that people came to help, doesn't it? The gardens look gorgeous. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #4 xx

  9. It's that time of year for trips out and about, if you can find a bit of sunshine. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the M

  10. Thank goodness someone came to your rescue, what a place to break down.
    The weather has been up and down recently noticeably since the children broke up for the summer! Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 19

  11. You had a good time in Cardiff by the sounds of it. We have lived in Bristol for 20 odd years and I have never been to Cardiff! Shame on me! Now it's too late and too far...
    I am sorry the buggy broke down. I hope it's fixed now. Yes, there are still kind people around.
    Apologies for the late comment. I've been so busy yesterday...
    A blog hug from me,
