Lavender Shawl

In July I drove past the most beautiful Lavender fields.

Inspired by this I decided to cast on some yarn I had purchased from a company called Mo & Co based in Yorkshire. They were new to yarn shows and they exhibited for the first time at Yarndale.

The yarn is 90% British Mohair from Angora goats kept in Yorkshire and 10% British Blue Faced Leicester.

The colours were completely perfect purple and lime green I was looking for.

Here is the journey of the shawl from beginning to end which was photographed at Slimbridge Wetlands Trust.

I look forward to many hours of wearing this and showing it to the yarn suppliers at this year's Yarndale.

Harbour day out in Bristol and the meeting of Wallace and Gromit.

Myself, my son and my mum decided to take a visit out to Bristol Harbour, here is a photo diary of our lovely trip all images taken by my 13 year old talented photographic son.

After a slow meander along the harbour we then went into the M Shed which is a great museum that encompasses the history of Bristol along with great views, graffic images and an exhibition on Wallace and Gromit.

Finally my gorgeous boy took images of myself and my mum without our knowledge, it is funny seeing them in the fact we both walked the same.

Hope you enjoyed our day out.

Cotswold Farm Park, (Adam's Farm)

During the incredible summer weather we are experiencing here in UK myself and my son headed off less than an hour from home to Cotswold Farm Park, which has featured each week on Countryfile.

Here is a picture diary of our trip.

The park is open from 10-5 daily and camping is open from April till October. 

I can't rate it enough it was the best break and camp I have done and hope to go back.
