It's half term already, which seems to have come round very fast. Last week was a whirl of days out, meals, rather a lot of wine and general family stuff. Sam came home from camp on Friday with sunburnt cheeks and full of stories of walks in streams, collecting fossils and singing songs round the campfire. He devoured two plates of spaghetti bolognese, went to bed and slept for about two hours longer than normal the next morning.
I've given the sock knitting a rest for a bit and have reaccquainted myself with the Rib and Cable jacket. However, it looks just the same as the previous photos, just a bit longer, which doesn't make for a very interesting photo. I've also started another garment, which is currently a big blob of black stocking stitch that I'm sure you can do without photos of at this stage.
The weather was glorious last week but less so this week. Rainy days and children home from school result in rather too much jumping and crashing in the house for my taste, so I dragged them out on a long walk yesterday in an attempt to get rid of some of the energy.
We walked a different way to our usual walk and passed this church, in a village a couple of miles from us.
I hadn't been inside before and was delighted to find this beautiful memorial to ancestors of the local gentry.
According to the information provided, it dates from circa 1380. I love finding things like this in unexpected places.
This one was a bit more recent, 1647 I think.
While the walk depleted energy levels yesterday, sadly it's raining again today and banging and crashing levels are reaching my breaking point. Thankfully the children are being taken to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean in about 20 minutes. I think I should be able to hang on until then.
