It seems ages since I've blogged but I have had so many problems with my computer that I've felt like throwing it out; if it wasn't for the fact that I can't afford a new one then it would be gone. To be honest though, she has done me proud as we are both getting on in years, so until she heads for the big cyberspace in the sky then I'll stick with her!
We also had another major expense that we didn't want when the car broke down. Tony said that it had been driving funny for weeks so we thought as it was so old we'd have to get another or risk being stranded somewhere, so last week was spent looking for another car.
We eventually got one on Saturday afternoon so on Sunday we decided to go for a drive to test it out. I didn't want to just go up and down the motorway so we decided to head for Bakewell which is probably an hour and a half from where we live. It is so beautiful there and although it is only a little village it was so crowded. The area is well known for hikers and climbers but I didn't imagine that there would be so many people about this early in the season.
Here's a link to the village if you'd like to see what it's like.
I didn't let on to Tony that there is a lovely needlework shop in Bakewell until we happened to walk past it. We did go in and look around but as we'd just had the expense of the car I was quite happy just to browse but later on, just before we went home Tony took me back and ordered me a new sewing lamp that I'm eagerly waiting to be delivered.
All the stitching that I've done seems to be for exchanges or PIFs so no pictures to put up but now everything is done I'm thinking of stitching a LHN chart that I've wanted to do for ages, just got to decide which one,
