I won first prize for this blanket I made last year. That was my only entry this year. I just didn't have time to do any more.
Today we went to the Blackpool Air Show. We sat in the warm sunshine, after a short shower, on the promenade steps and watched the old and the new planes, the helicopters and the Red Arrows all showing off the wonderful things they can do. (Sorry no photos of the planes as they didn't turn out too clear).
There was a slight breeze and the sea was calm and yet other parts of the country were being battered by Bertha (hope they're ok). As I'm typing this I hear the wind getting up and see my plants starting to get a little shaken.
I'm glad we went to the air show this afternoon as it may get cancelled tomorrow if this wind gets up any more.
I've got some treasury work to do tomorrow so won't be going anywhere.
Also this week-end saw a Punk festival and there were some amazing sights. Some of you may remember Punks the first time around, I know I do, (but was a bit young to be part of that scene, not that I wanted to) with their safety pins, tartan trousers, spiky coloured hair etc.
I felt a little threatened by the punks back then because, to me, they looked quite aggressive but these two don't and were happy to pose for photos. I love the colour of their hair. I wonder how long it took them to get ready this morning and if the were jostling for mirror space.
I'm now going to close the curtains, snuggle up on the settee and watch some TV.
See you soon.
