Well were are you all? I am back and seem to be the only one posting this week LOL!!

I was going to wait to go to see Zac on his 10th Birthday tomorrow and see if his posters where up in his new bedroom, then this poster caught my eye as I put all the Lenovo info paperwork away having had my new laptop!!

I am afraid no tissue or crepe paper in this house :( !!!!

I found a cookery page and will make this apricot  recipe tomorrow !..Apricot Clafoutis....need to get rid of some double cream!!

18th August - Skies from last week

Sorry I didn't participate in last week's challenge 'Century'. To be honest I have no relations who fought in World War 1 and had a busy week as Carol was home on her own for a week from Wilts so we were out a lot and then busy getting ready for visitors who came on Fri and have just left today Mon.
We had fab weather again last week so Carol and I spent the day out, here we are at lunch time at a cafe on the beach before we fell into M&S for some serious retail therapy!!!
 We spent the weekend with our visitors keeping to the sea as much as possible as they live inland in Somerset nr Bath. Pat is one of my college friends, we have known each other 51yrs!!
Here are my sky photos from last week. Zac and Xanthe saw this and we quickly got my camera out, it was a sunshine and showers day for them!!
 Saturday sky in both photos

Sunday evening sunset as we were eating our meal, I kept having to jump up and take another photo!!

 and our sky today just after saying goodbye to visitors and off to find the bedlinen and towels to wash!!

Xanthe this hot summer!  Just loved her sunglasses!!

It was moving day yesterday for my youngest son and family. We arrived at 7am to take the children off to our house for the day!    It was too early for Zac and he was a pretty unhappy boy til we had breakfast in Sainsbury!!
 It looks as though it was too early for another man too!!
 We had to export all Zachary's lego models in our car!!
To try and get a family photo was too difficult!!
 Mum finally got smiles from them as we finally left
It was too hectic when we took the children home about 6ish to take any photos, they had moved into their new home but with boxes absolutely everywhere!!
We ended an exhausting day with a fish and chip supper and a glass of red wine!!
