My little bit of this big World

Being spoilt.

It was Mothering Sunday last weekend, we did not do much, both daughters have their own family, and it's right they should spend the day with their children. Plus I never like going out on such busy days. I did get gifts, yarn for socks, I love the summer colours of both.
 Something nice to eat, these have gone and they were lovely
Hubby got me this lovely tortoise, for my garden.
 I got 2 needle felting kits to try, just simple ones to start.
 Plus some tools, I used the refund from the cancelled course to purchase these, as the course was a Christmas gift from hubby to me, I have not added these to my stash list. I just need the time to start them.
I did a very sneaky cast on with my Leftie shawl on Sunday afternoon. I should have finished my jumper, but this called. I decided not to use the burgundy, just loving these colours, not my normal choices. 
Sunday was a lazy day in our sunny garden, it was not as warm as it has been, but the sunshine was brilliant. I pottered for hours, doing a final tidy before we are away to Spain. Hubby had to get out the leaf sucker/blower to pick up the huge pile of petals fallen off the Magnolia tree over night, the tree gives us loads of work at this time of year, I don't like to see the petals on the lawn. It's the same later in the year when the leaves drop. But the tree gives us so much pleasure.
We are now packed, enjoying a lovely cup of coffee before driving to my brothers house, we leave the car there and he will take us to Bristol airport to fly to Spain. Our nearest airport is Gatwick and then Heathrow, but we don't like either place, plus I get to see my brother for a short while.
I loved the yarn above I have packed the yellow one to make socks whilst away, and I have a few books on my kindle, so plenty of relaxing things to do.
