Off to France

Hi Peeps.  Yes you have guessed it by the title that I am off on my travels again today.  This time it is to see my lovely daughter and her husband in France.  The taxi is picking us up hopefully at 11.30 am this morning.

We will be flying back next Thursday 9th in the evening.  I am not sure how much we will be going out and about this year as they have a shop to run.  They closed it last year and we went lots of places but it isn't fair on them or their customers to close it again.  They will probably take it in turns to go in and open up.  I have got to go in one of the days to have my spend up in the shop!!!  It will just be lovely to see them and hopefully the weather will be kind to us (Daughter just email it is 39 there) and we can get some sun to our bodies instead of going rusty!!!

I do have three DT cards appearing, one tomorrow and two next week while I am gone.  I have scheduled them.  Typical that all the Challenges will probably be finished for me to enter them by the time I return!!!

There will be a PATTIES CREATIONS CHALLENGE tomorrow at 6am UK time -  DREAM VALLEY CHALLENGES  on Monday 6th July at 11am UK time - CREATIVE CARD CREW on Tuesday 7th at 6am UK time.

Hope you have fun and all keep well while I am away.

Yorkshire Here We Come.

Hi Folks.  Hopefully all has gone to plan and as this posting goes live I am getting on my coach for a four day trip to Yorkshire.

Today we make our way on the outward journey from Hertfordshire to Yorkshire.  Our first stop in Yorkshire is Harrogate for the afternoon, then we make our way to our hotel in Huby - near York for the evening meal.

Friday we take the coach to Pickering and get on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for a lovely train ride across the moors to the coastal town of Whitby .  We have the afternoon at Whitby, returning to our hotel in Huby in the evening.

Saturday we have a full day in the city of York visiting all the museums and shopping, returning to our hotel once again in the evening.

Sunday we leave the hotel and visit the 18th century stately home Castle Howard.  After seeing the Castle and landscape gardens and having lunch we make our way home to Hertfordshire.  Hopefully we will make it home by 8pm.

Then there is all the unpacking of the dirty washing - toiletries and putting all the suitcases away until the next trip away!!!

Have a lovely happy four days until I speak to you again.
