This weekend involved a wee trip
to see Katherine, my friend-who-crochets. We had a bit of a jaunt:
So much yarn! strokey strokey, lovely lovely.
It was very hot, so we bought chilly drinks in a real old fashioned newsagents – not only selling papers, drinks and confectionary but also greetings cards, fishing nets, footballs, colouring books and Thomas the Tank Engine toys.
