Friday Smile

I'm joining in again with Annie's Friday Smile on this dull snowy day. Popover to Annie's blog, a stitch in time, for some more.

I'm remembering the super sunny holiday I enjoyed last July when Donna and I visited Dolores in Slovenia. What a laugh we had together and it was so HOT, Hot Hot!
Having lunch at the restaurant atop Slovenia's highest mountain we had  forgotten the hats and sunscreen so we were trying our unglamorous best to keep the sun off our delicate English skin.
Remember Cole Porter's song about Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun? Here's his inspiration! Well at least I didn't tie knots in the corners of the hanky on my head!!

 Three crazy women had such a hoot crafting in the early hours of the morning... we hadn't even had a drop of anything other than TEA!
Just so if you really don't know us, here you can see us looking nearer to normal and we're not really crazy, we just love having fun!
It's Friday so SMILE!

hahhaha... you guys must have had a blast! Was it some other Englishman who said.... "Who has more fun than crazy people?" if not.... well, it should have been ....

My sister and I say it all the time when we are shoveling horse poop on her little farm in 100 degree weather .... well, that and other silly things we do... like moving a mountainous pile of pine logs, by hand, in the same heat....acckkkk!!

I am smiling, Jo. We went to Spain for a wedding in the middle of August, and forgot the sunscreen too. We did have sunhats but they did not really go with a posh wedding outfit. So we were moving from shade to shade. Great time was had by all. xx Maggie

Brilliant - it's been a typically gloomy winter's day but I have had lots of giggles thanks to you and all Annie's smilers! Also I have been straining my brain trying to sort out the maths of my quilt!! Now I know why I am not really a quilter. Ha ha -- I love a challenge. Fab photos there Jo - what a happy bunch. x Jo
