Ahoy there...

I have been hither and thither over the last few days.

Trips to my parents...

... and Sunday lunchtime cinema to see Despicable Me 2, at last; and then today we went to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

It was really excellent.  We got there super-early and were able to go into the new Mary Rose Museum as soon as it opened, avoiding the queues and crowds completely.  It was so good to see the wreck and artefacts in the new building, and to bore the kids with the tale of how I remembered it being pulled from the seabed when I was just a bit older than them!

We went round HMS Victory and HMS Warrior and had a go in a helicopter simulator.  There was a picnic, and ice-cream and then we finished the day off with a wander round Gunwharf Quays.

There may have been shopping, with White Stuff, Cath Kidston and Paperchase all within 100yds of each other, it certainly was not my fault!

So there has been very little sewing, but maybe tomorrow I will be able to show you something; although, if my To Do list is anything to go by, it may well just be name tags and Rainbow badges!

Now I need to rest my achy feet and take a look in my Inbox...wish me luck x


  1. Oh how I love White stuff - clearly a successful day!

  2. Hmm the 'New' May Rose sounds like something of an oxymoron ;o)

  3. Love the historic dockyard. And what you didn't show us what shopping swag you got?

  4. had to read that 3 times before I understood IT was pulled from the seabed not you.... lol Fun times!

  5. ah, you visited my birthplace... well done you...

  6. Sounds like the perfect day out with something for everyone :)

  7. Looks like you've had a great time...kids just love anything to do with the sea and boats done they? I cant say I envy your task of sewing on labels and badges though!

  8. No sewing occurring here at the moment... but not long until the squiddlies are back at school!
    Sounds like you are still having fun :0)

  9. aren't you a good mum!!! do they go back today? I've got 135 coming in today, including 29 New 4 year olds - this could be fun!
