Weekend Away!

Arrived back after my long weekend away at Mum's. Had an exciting journey back driving through, sleet, hail and rain. The temp has definately dropped. It is that time of year again...

Rayburn lighting!!

Last year we lit on the 19th October, so we have done well lasting so long. But to be honest it hasn't been too bad as we have had the front fire lit!

whilst we have been away hubby survived with just the front fire, he was at work most days so it wasn't too bad but look at the mess he left

can you see all the dust? This is the problem with coal fires and there is an art to cleaning, riddling and stoking and I don't think he has it! Yuk!!!

Let me re-introduce you to my Great Neice Madison,

she will be 2 in December

yep she is going to be a big girl, well her mum is 6ft 2ins!!!

Here she is in K's boots!!!

it was great spending time with Mum, Zoe and Madison, the next time we go up will be Christmas!!!
