So without further ado, a couple of fun pics to let Grandma, and you all, see what we've been up to!
We celebrated the 60th Anniversary of Meg's Infant's School with an evening fete and a visit from the Mayor of Newcastle. The kids had great fun, especially Joseph who got to see friends from the Infant's school that went on to other places for Year 3. They were all delighted to be able to ring the new school bell and play in the field until it got dark. We had a few crafty stalls along with the usual Trash and Treasure, plant stalls and home baking. I took along some of my crocheted Christmas decorations and some bags of granola. I figured that this was easier than baking and decorating heaps of cupcakes. Amazingly, all the bags sold very quickly! Smallest Boy was delighted to have his first ever pony ride - can you tell?
The weather has certainly been heating up and we've had a couple of cracking storms this week due to the humidity.
I'm very close to a ta-dah of my latest Granny Blanket, which will be heading to Scotland as soon as it is done, to welcome my wonderful friend Claire's new baby. Hoping to meet him via Skype soon!
