.... Elephants when it is turned to the other side

Elephant Children's Taggie Toy Experiment


I made my first Taggie Toy for my Grandson. I will try to make a better one. It has too many tags and needs some wadding inside. Some people put a cereal packet inside to make them crackly. I am not sure if this would be safe for a baby so I didn't this time. I will make another one soon

Bournemouth Oceanariam Turtles

We spent a few days in Bournemouth and visited the Oceanariam  


They have enormous Turtles


I did feel sorry for the Crocodile as it looked as if he was all alone


Enormous Lizard
It was worth every penny.  We thought we would see it all in an hour but stayed over 3 hours !

Imperfect Four Leaf Clovers


My Four Leaf Clovers are dry now. To hopefully preserve them I have made them into Keyrings. The leaves have been nibbled by Insects. I hope they stay green

LANDMARK TRUST Elton House Bath October 2017


Me being very silly in the Museum
I have just returned from Bath. We stayed at ELTON HOUSE which has been restored by THE LANDMARK TRUST Charity

This is the front of ELTON HOUSE. It is only a minutes walk from

 Bath Abbey and The Roman Baths


The back of the house and the gardens are beautiful

One of many beautifully restored rooms



One of many photos I took in Bath


ELTON HOUSE Sleeps up to 10 people
We went on a Ghost Walk on Thursday evening. We heard about the many Ghosts in Bath


This bedroom was spooky. None of us wanted to sleep in it
 We saw Orbs and had goosebumps as soon as we walked into it !
I hope to return to Bath. It is a wonderful City

Kitchen Garden Review 6 October 2017




 The last of our Runner Beans were stringy so I am just using the Beans inside. I am drying the biggest Bean Seeds in the Airing Cupboard to grow more Beans next year. The smaller ones I am freezing to eat. I read somewhere that they are poisonous to eat raw. I cook them for the same amount of time I usually cook Runner Beans 


Bamboo Sticks tidied away


We are still eating Apples Raspberries Spinach Cucumbers Carrots and Beetroot

 It has been a good year for Celery which is still growing well. Our Lettuces are struggling now. This will probably be my last gardening post this year. If the sun is out I find it hard to keep indoors. It is sunny now so I am off to pick a few more Raspberries...yum !

First attempt at weaving on a loom


I love learning something new and this is it !
The Weald and Downland Living Museum run some very good Craft Workshops
 I think I will be doing more Weaving as I really enjoyed learning different Weaving techniques
