Our arrival in Melton Mowbray!

The journey was good, we stopped off for a bite to eat at Rutland Water to pass some time and then settled in to our "home" for the next 2 weeks! The Old Guadaloupe Farm House is gorgeous!

We unpacked the car, got accustomed to our new surroundings (running around like lunatics as we investigated the rooms and views) then set off for the sunny sights of Tesco's where we spent a small fortune!

Once back we did some unpacking then tried out the pool table!

We finished the evening off with a nice curry and a bottle of wine, we felt really at home as we sat around the huge farmhouse table. Later on we just had to try out the hot tub and relaxed in the bubbles to watch the sunset over the hills.

I didn't mind being woken at 7.30am, especially when you can open the curtains to views like this!

Weather forcast is not that great today, not really sure yet what the day will bring but I am sure scrummy food, wine and family fun will play a big part in it all!

Another wrap bracelet......

 ...and some waffle.  Not been up to much, been like a couch potato most of the time and been sat enjoying the Olympics! Last night I was productive whilst I watched and made another wrap style bracelet using some newly acquired stringing materials! I am quite happy with the result but think a pewter coloured beads instead of the little silvery ones would have been much more effective. (Perhaps I will have to add those to my next wishlist!)

My hydrangea is in full bloom and providing some much needed colour in the top border in the garden. 

.....and Amelia has been composing!!! LOL

Not long now before we head off on our holidays, cannot wait. Wellies and waterproofs at the ready.
