wet weekend

Well, the weekend was a bit of a washout. My sister drove down really early Saturday morning, as she's come to stay with us for the week. We had planned to go and see Bournemouth Airshow on Saturday, and we didn't let the drizzle deter us from setting off early, with packed sandwiches and raincoats. Unfortunately, however, airoplanes are a bit more temperamental than I thought, with most of the displays being cancelled due to low cloud.

Oh well, we still had a great day out. We saw the Royal Navy display which kicked off the day:

Me and my little girl got close to a Golden Eagle:

And then she giggled a lot whilst dancing to music in the gardens:

Followed by a browse around the shops and dinner at McDonalds, before catching the train home. Actually, it was quite nice taking the train somewhere with hubby, we almost always drive everywhere, so it felt like more of an adventure!

Yesterday we barely left the house as it was so miserable, and hubby had returned to work. Me, sis, and little one spent the morning being creative - I made a card. I based it on this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch:

Here's the card (click on photo to see it larger):

It features one of my five petal flowers, the tutorial for these can be found here if you missed it. I'm going to send it to my sister-in-law for her b'day next month. So at least Sunday was mildly productive. And we had a scrummy roast dinner too, so can't complain!

Now I'm just waiting for my driving lesson. I've had about 10 hours of lessons so far, and sometimes it feels like it's getting easier, other times I wonder if I'll ever be able to get the hang of it! Fingers crossed I won't stall today! xx
