We were busy enjoying our time in the Lake District, last week, and we didn't have internet connection so I couldn't post my Friday smiles on Annie's Blog, a stitch in time.
We had lots of smiles during the week so I'm adding a few to join in with Annie's weekly fun.
We were told it was free connection in the lodge where we stayed but it was useless. As a result I almost didn't get in touch with my lovely blogging buddy Chris (Pear Shaped Crafter) and her DH, who have a caravan nearby. We arranged a day out but planned to phone to make arrangements.
DH and I eventually decided to set out for our day out and half way there Chris managed to connect with my phone so we all met up at Farfield Mill in Sedbergh where we had a great day together. Lots of crafty things to see and lots of chat. It's a super place for a good crafty day out.
The previous day, DH and I had visited the Motor Museum, Ulverston, and I smiled when I saw this clock over the entrance... .wish I had one at home as I could often do with turning the clock back!
I'm adding a few pics of MG cars especially for Dolores's Alan who is an MG enthusiast and has a vintage MG. We've just GOT to take him to the museum one day, he'll love it.
Alan also has a Wurlitzer Juke box in his hall ... much more spectacular than this one.
My DH, Dave, couldn't choose from this menu and loved the prices. That clock certainly works! Please may I have sausage, egg and chips, a mug of tea and a small cake?.....
that will be 2 shillings.... which, in todays money, converts to 10p!!!
Yet another classic MG
We stayed in this lodge which is so spacious and comfy inside and faces the lake
Each day we were greeted by the ducks and swans who were obviously used to being fed by the visited. I loved the white one but the others seemed to shove it out of the way so I made sure it had it's share of the food. I bought special wild bird food instead of giving them crusts.
This swan was so persistent and friendly and kept peeping through our balcony.
