Well its still raining....

so its a bit of a stay at home day today as it is a bit cold too. Good opportunity to do a bit of blogging. I got a bit of a surprise today - I have won my first award!!!
Kernowitch kindly gave me the award, so thank you Chrissy :)) Now picking another seven might be a bit hard to do!!! But here they are:-

They are not in any particular order or preference, I like them all for various reasons and interest.

While down in Eastleigh we were out and spotted some of these creatures wondering around the countryside! There was many different breeds in the area, but we chose these ones.

Once you have caught them, you cook them and eat them :))
Hastings was a short three night visit. Played on the 2p slot machines and came away with 15 little prizes! Wooo hooo Visited with SW's oldest living aunt - if she is still with us in December she will be 98 years old!! Not a bad innings. We visited and stayed with other relations there - great to catch up with them again. Went out to Icklesham for a lovely meal on the last night there, little country pub which served the most fabulous smoked haddock mornay. Jenny and Rob came with us to enjoy the food.
We then stopped off on the way back north to see another of SW's cousins and have a cuppa with her. Then on to a place called Wendy near Royston in Cambridge to visit a miniature shop called Maple Street. Of course I managed to buy a couple or three things there. We were then ready to head right back up north to our base point and take a breather for a day or two before the next leg of the trip starts.
While blogging I spotted a little PG Tips fellow sitting on the shelf next to Tipsy Jock (I bought him last time we were in the UK) So I thought he might like to get on the blog and have a look around the world!
