Blue & Lilac Christmas Card
Afternoon Blogging Buddies!
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. We've been looking after our Grandson today so it's been a busy day so far, his Dad's just been to pick him up so peace has descended!
He's a good lad, he's only 4, we do enjoy having him, even if he does wear us out!!
We are still recovering from our day out on Thursday to be honest, we did far too much walking.
We went firstly to Fleetwood, had a browse around the market, there's a craft stall on there so had a look at that, then onto another craft shop in Fleetwood, quite a big one, sells the 'Papermill' card and paper so bought a box of that.
Then onto 'Freeport' for a mosey round the designer stuff, not for me I have to say but I do like looking, they have a craft shop there to.
Then we went on to Cleveleys, had a walk around the shopping area and a real good walk down the prom, it was a lovely sunny day,we followed that with a spot of lunch.
We thought we'd call into Blackpool on the way back down, now I have to admit, Blackpool is not for me, too noisy and too crowded, but being as we had to pass through it to get on our way back home we thought we'd give it a go.
Our intention was to hang around to see the lights, if only to give the M6 time to clear a bit from 'work' traffic, but by 6.30 I'd had enough and wanted to start back home, I wasn't that desperate to see the illuminations, seen them many times before when I was younger so we gave it a miss and set off home.
We'd had a good day, it was a change, we seem to end up doing that trip about every four years, and that's enough for me, I prefer somewhere more 'gentile' these days, I must be getting old!
By the time we got back, I was well and truly 'cream crackered', ready for a brew and bed, I didn't take much rocking I can tell you!
So onto crafting......
