Frogs >>>>>>> the bain of my life last Saturday .... I was merrily stitching on the CA as I had promised to DD1 and I set too, to do the left hand large motif thats at the bottom of the photo ... when I realised that the small section in the middle was one thread out AGGHHHH soooo I duly unpicked, as you do and re started again .. zoomed round the whole motif to find I then was a stitch to close to the top as I had forgotten about the bead that was supposed to go there AGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ... by now I was ready to lob the whole piece across the room ....... the kettle went on and I found some chocolate AHHHHHHHH .....

We also were visited next door by Mr Hedgehog and I managed to sneak round and take a photo .... he appeared early for his supper that my next door neighbours put out every night for him so I got chance to watch him having a right good old nosh ..lol

In between all the animal antics and the stitching I had to sneak some cards in as we had a cousins wedding on Thursday ..up North by the "angel of the North or near Newcastle for those not familiar with it .....
I also did one for DN (dear neighbours) for their DD's and SIL 25th wedding anniversary.....
We travelled up on Thursday afternoon for the wedding which was being held at a very posh hotel up there called the Close House Hotel...... the grounds were fantastic for any one who plays golf too ....
The bride looked gorgeous and had us ladies, traipsing down to the lake to set off some lotus flower candles .... I tried to get a good shot of them but hey hoe you get the idea ......

we travelled back the same night and driving down the A1 in the pitch black is not my idea of fun seeing as I was driving back ..... needless to say have been resting ever since as it was 2.45am when we got back and I have been rather ouchie since but it was worth it as we had a fabulous time and it was great to meet up with all the family again :)
