My rellies have been staying with us for a few days, I don't get to see them very often so it was lovely for me to have them here.
Hubby took one of the days while they were here off work, and by some amazing luck it turned out a beautiful hot day - very surprising as the rain had woken us all up during the night because it was soooo loud! Anyway, the blue skies of the next morning were a very pleasant surprise and we didn't need to think up an alternative plan after all. We went over to Audley End, which is such a great place to visit on a nice day as the gardens are just fab to wander around - I'll sort out some photos to put on here later.
My cousin came over on Saturday and we'd all planned to head out for the day - but the weather was so lovely we decided we couldn't be bothered to make the effort and that a day slobbing out in the garden would be much nicer! I even managed to find enough stuff in the freezer to have a BBQ without needing to go out for a hasty shop.
We weren't totally lazy - the croquet, boules and koosh all came out to play during the day, but generally we did very little. Apart from being by the sea I'm not sure there's a better way to spend a sunshiney day - we're too far away from the sea here, and anyway, my rellies live across the road from the beach when they're at home and don't have a proper garden to sit in there, so being in ours was a treat for them.
I managed to get out of my chair for long enough to take a few photos
back soon with some August Crafty Template cards,
Thanks for looking
