Oh dear, naughty me !

Sue Wilsons new Christmas dies hit the market this week and I just couldn't resist some of them. There's still a couple I might just have to have.
Anything to make Christmas card making a tad easier! Well that's my excuse.
Andy and I are on holiday for two's a stay at home one this year, doesn't seem possible this time last year we were on a cruise and today we were in Alanya in Turkey, visiting Said and the Magnavat waterfall and it was very hot! The past few days we've been decorating our hall/stairs, tomorrow we shall finish the papering and put everything back.
Tuesday we took a little drive out to Cratfield too see where myself and 6 friends are staying at the end of September for a crafty retreat.......the place looks lovely. We then went onto Aldburgh and had fish and chips sitting on the sea front.

Next we took a two mile drive along the coast to Thorpeness.
The House in the Clouds to the right of the picture is a converted water tower.

Poor horse looked totally cheesed off. !
To round off the afternoon we treated ourselves to this...............
Scrummy it was too.
Along from Thorpeness on the beach (ha, I mean pebbles!) we found the clam sculpture.

If ever in Suffolk both these places are well worth a visit, you can find them off the A12 in between Woodbridge and Lowestoft.I have some new photos to scrapbook at last!

Anyway, hope you're having a lovely bank holiday weekend even if it is a little chilly.
