Hello from Sunday night everyone.
We had the most marvellous weekend round here.
Our friends Nick and Sarah drove down from The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, to have Sunday lunch with us. I haven’t seen them for a full year and so was very excited. When R invited them, I asked if Sarah would like to come to the Sunday boot sale with me and, surprise, Nick said he wanted to come too. Poor Robbie. For him, car boot sales rank right up there with…say…pulling teeth, but he was the best sport in the world and he came with us.

After lunch we decided to walk down to the village church to visit our Knight Templar, Thomas Moore, and his lady Isabelle. As you can see, we got stuck in the rush hour traffic…both ways…lol, but managed to make it to the church. ๐Ÿ˜€ Where we had to get past the gate guard, and we found Thomas and Isabelle right where we left them last time we visited. I love this little church and these effigies and the remains of the Medieval frescoes showing Thomas and Isabelle being escorted to heaven. I’m stitching a cross stitch of Isabelle so did a bit of a study of her likeness for my project.

Then a nice walk home, and cups of tea, and too soon Nick and Sarah had to leave to drive the hour back to Gloucestershire.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend in your parts of the globe. What did you all get up to? ๐Ÿ˜€
