Catching up here!
Just before Easter DS and I went south for a few days to The Wall. Weather was great, we walked, laughed and (hopefully) learnt something about the Romans!
At the Cawfields section;
At RE in Corbridge;
Yes we watched it. Did you? Of course you did.
Oh to be married in McQueen, I want to see the back of that dress.
What a loss the man himself wasn’t here to see it. Wish I could fly to NY for the retrospective exhibition starting Wednesday. Details here.
First stop today – Norham Antique and Collectables fair for some lace.
Its a lovely border village with the castle in the distance (famously painted by Turner).
Afternoon at a Salvage Yard at Ford. Came home with a Kodak No.1 Pocket Camera c1926-1932. I have some 120 roll film left over from my wedding photography days and I might put it through. DH and I were intrigued to see how it worked.
The salvage yard is opposite Ford Castle where we got married, we used to live close by – we rented and were to buy but unfortunately the house was withdrawn from the market. I do miss living in a village with the village atmosphere.
After Ford we went to Etal and boys will be boys……

“The purpose of life is to live it,
to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and without fear
for newer and richer experience.”
Its on again this year.
Lots of new categories and they have promised better paper this time. Last time this was a real issue for me – blocked my brain completely when I realised I couldn’t do as I wanted.
I’ve signed up – why don’t you go and take a look? Click on the logo below.
We are having a great Easter holiday. DS and I have been away for a few days (more later) and today we have been enjoying being at home with beautiful weather
DH was dressed for scruffy jobs and burning the last of the winters dead branches (at last the pile has gone!)
Boys playing as boys do
And flowers for Frieda her exhibition is now ON!
Can’t wait to go and see it.
Her tulips and cherry blossom aren’t out yet so I am sending some more of mine up and left a bit into Scotland.
Another tulip photo here
Even the humblest flowers are beautiful
I even wore some in my hair.
Can you imagine the pain of wearing these!
Flowers are finally starting to bloom in the garden….
Hoping the cherry blossom will be out in full bloom for my birthday (two weeks away – and I am determined to celebrate, unlike DH who sulked in March!)
