As always the most important number is how long till we get our next Marillion fix - it is now only 15 sleeps away - I'm so excited!!!!
My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary - we had a family meal in their favourite Chinese restaurant attended by 17 people.
and then a week later we took them to the beautiful island of Guernsey for a little holiday.
This beautiful cottage was our home for 9 days.
A highlight of the holiday was a day on the beautiful island of Herm - it only took 20 minutes to get there by boat and we enjoyed beautiful weather that day - a glorious 20C. We made our way to Shell Beach which was a 45 minute walk from the harbour.
Coming back we had to negotiate the Rosiere steps to pick our boat back up, what a bad number collector I am because I was so busy trying to stay upright on them that I didn't count them and I cannot find anywhere online that actually says how many there are - but there were a lot!!
We also spent 2 nights in Manchester and went on an elephant hunt around the Trafford Centre - there were over 100 elephants and we managed to track down 85 of them. Here are some of my favourites -
I also held my first fundraiser of the year - I was allowed to have a stall and run a raffle at my parent's sheltered housing's weekly coffee morning. We raised £214 for a local charity Children with Cancer Fund, we are now busy getting ready for another one in November.
Craftwise I made 9 Christmas cards, 11 other cards, 10 post it note pads, 2 layouts and a 20 page 6x6 album for my parents.
