It's summer

The weather is glorious - seriously glorious - and we have been making the most of it.

Yesterday we headed to Kingston lacy for a lovely walk. We couldn't believe it as we were the only people there for the first half an hour. I think maybe it was quieter as people thought it didn't open until 10.30 and also it is not a colourful time of year It was very green but there were no snowdrops or daffodils or camelias or rhodos and so it was - well green. The house looked fab with no one around though

We were going o go to another National Trust property an hour and a half away but as Kingston Lacy had just been green we decided not to and, as I am a water girl at heart, we had a lovely walk around Lymington, the coastal path, the salt marshes and the marina.

We planned a nice quiet afternoon but the nosepiece of my glasses broke and so we went into town to get it fixed and I did something I have been meaning to do for a long time - I ordered new glasses - two pair. My current glasses go back to 2016 so they have done well worn every day for pretty much 6 years.

 

I haven;t done a great deal of scrapping that I can share yet but I did make this little tag book

This was made with a stunning template from Chunlin Designs
