SELINA LAKE’S HOMESPUN STYLE MARKET

So we packed up our wares and scooted off down to London to spend a most wonderful day chit chatting, meeting friends old & new and generally oohing & ahhhing at all the wonderful stalls that surrounded the hall.

I took a few quick snaps as everyone was setting up but if you would like to see more then wing your way over to Selina’s Flickr page HERE.

A TRIP TO THE SEASIDE

2 Adults, 5 Children & a caravan….it was difficult at times but we went to Kent to visit my Dad & revisit the area we hailed from, pointing out all manner of interesting sights to our small ones.

Grandad’s workshop…a most interesting playground
