Shine on, you crazy diamond...
Well the sun has kept shining and we spent a lovely day in Portsmouth, with a look round Gunwharf Quay and a long-awaited trip up the Spinnaker Tower.
It looked quite a long way up, and a long way down, but we are hardened tower 'climbers' and the children have happily crawled and walked the glass floors of the Auckland Sky Tower, so this was a breeze!
The dots at the bottom are the tables outside the cafe below. With clear blue skys we could see over to the Isle of Wight, along the coast and inland, and made promises of trips to HMS Victory below another day.
...and here's a treat for you ladies!!
I managed to find a super pack of 5 pairs of baby socks for £2 in the Next outlet store, so I am looking forward to trying to make some mini owls.
No sewing tonight, it was a very long day.
