Mr P is home.....

Mr P returned home safe and sound Saturday morning at 9:30am
Apparently he had a delay at Binghampton but apparently the flights are not allowed to land at Heathrow until 6am and the weather people in the States had a fabulous high wind that was blowing towards England and they wanted to catch that as it would save them an hours flying... therefore saving on that all to expensive aviation fuel...

Mr P brought home some local publications for me to see... and a couple of menu's from eating establishments that he frequented... I have never seen so much cheese... with everything!
He also brought home some goodies for all of us...

Apparently Crochet is a really big thing in America and he brought me home a couple of publications and a case to put all my hooks in... and all the coloured hooks...
I am well and truly set now... and if they will deliver to the UK I am ordering the Crochet world magazine... I know American crochet is slightly different to English but its quite amazing as I seem to be able to work from either...
he also brought home a bead tray so that I can lay out my designs before I string them up, which I used yesterday and it is really fab...


Jamie had a lovely Betty Boop bag and baseball cap... not sure where they have been whisked off to but if I catch sight of them I will take a picture, and Daniel had a fab Thomas aeroplane set and a John Deer Tractor on a low loader with a silver lorry to pull it...

Mr P was adamant that he was not tired and went off to mow the lawn....
I gave him a hand and we got it done.... needless to say he went to bed at 1:30pm and slept soundly till the kids went to bed at 8:30pm... I think he was tired!

I wish I could shake this cough...
its really getting me down, especially being woken at 3am suffering a coughing fit that ends up with me sleeping on the settee....

Well its 9:40am and Mr P is still in bed... Danny doesn't do lie ins so I have been up a while... Jamie has also gotten up... I had better get ready as I am off to the farm to take a look at the Carnival float... I had better take some paper and a pencil as they want a diagram of what the generator design should be.... and then I had better call in and mow my mums friends lawn... I need to pick up 3 bags of compost and drop some into my mum and then I had better get home and cook some dinner.... roast chicken perhaps!

Well I hope you all have a fab long weekend
and I will chat to you again soon
Take care
x Alex

Love your crochet world magazines! I have ordered Stitch n Bitch-The Happy Hooker, from Amazon last night, as I read so many great reviews for this book, I just hope I can follow the American patterns alright, and I hope I don't get confused when I come to follow English patterns, oh dear! Is it terribly confusing, or can you work the patterns out easliy? xxxx

Hi Alex!
Thank you for dropping by - I am very excited about the seaside swap and will be exploring your blog posts over the coming weeks!
It would be great if you could join in with the Afternoon Tea. I will send you the suggested days of week and time frame currently being explored by everyone who is interested.
Happy bank holiday!

Quicker than I thought, here are the suggestions for Afternoon Tea:

A Monday, Tuesday, or Friday possibly at The Bath Priory Hotel (which has a carpark), and sometime between 15th June and 10th July.

Let me know how this sounds to you. My comments come through my email first, so if you'd rather I contact you about this via email, leave your email address in the comment. (don't worry I won't publish the comment!).
Happy days
Denise
