T is for Trains,Trees and a Three year old.

On Monday my three year old grandson came to stay for a couple of days so off we went for a little trek in and around our little village.Lewis and his two brothers love coming to stay because we have a steam railway literally on our door step,you can see it from our kitchen window so as you can imagine it is a little boys dream and a good few big boys as well.These are a few of the photos I took hope you enjoy them.

I think trees have such character.

This is our very pretty village church.

A very cheeky face.

Filling up with coal.

My friend donkey.

T   for Teepee.

One very long hill to climb,there is 12 grit bins on this hill all full ready for the winter ,do you think they are telling us something.Lewis opened everyone just to make sure they had not forgot one bless him.

The top at last.

Can you see the Tunnels?

Railway Track.

Twisted Tree roots.

Tumbling river.

Trees at Twilight.

And one very Tired Three year old,night night Lewis sleep Tight.

            Dentist in the morning not looking forward to it at all,got to have a filling and some work done to a root canal filling I had done 7yrs ago.But the pain will not be as bad as the pain I had 7yrs ago that was dreadful ,I would rather of gone through a week of labour,giving birth is nothing compared to tooth ache.
    Hope you are all well take care Love Jill xx

My weekend.

         Friday evening I went to bed feeling rather yuk,cold,stuffed up and headache,then Saturday morning I got up with a real sore throat and headache,but after breakfast and some paracetamol I pulled myself together and went to see my friend Denise.She lives about 20mins drive away and had invited me along too the village coffee morning with her.It was cold so a nice cup of coffee was just what we need along with a nice cake.I won some body lotion and pencils on the tombola and bought raffle tickets,no win there tho.Then we went to a town nearby to collect a new guitar for Denise and do some browsing,bought some material for the project I have on the go at the moment(more about that in a while)its nice to wander around the shops with someone who is interested in the same as you instead of the hubby outside making you feel guilty that you've gone into a shop and may take more than 1 second to look around,I'm sure you girls know what I mean.
        Saturday afternoon I sat in front of  the fire and did some sewing,I hardly ever sit down during the day but I have done it for 2 afternoons on the trot now,could become a bit of  a habit this winter.I did get up and cook a chicken roast for our evening meal so Im not lazy altogether.My sewing came out again after meal time and I didnt move again till I went to my bed.
        Now, as I was waking this morning still not feeling 100% I thought Im not doing much today just going to potter but while I was sat eating my breakfast and the sun was shining on the windows, no rephrase that dirty windows I felt ashamed that they where mine.So out came my bucket and cloths and now they are gleaming front and back and the outside doors,when Id finished them and was having coffee I decided to do some tidying in the garden while the sun was out.After what was going to be a lazy day again turned out to be a busy one but I sure feel better for doing something and Im sure it will help me sleep better,fingers crossed.

        The project Im on with at the minute is a wall hanging for christmas,I did one a few years ago but I think when I sorted a cupboard out a while ago I must of binned it along with some other things because I cannot find it anywhere,never mind I am enjoying doing this one.Easy really all y ,ou have to do is stitch around santa and the toys and any other bits you want to so anyone can do it.Dont you think he is a fine looking fellow Santa Claus ?I do.when Its all finished I will show you,Im sure I will get thumbs up from my 3 little grandsons Billy,Lewis and Scott.
       Well I will say good night and sweet dreams and go and do a bit more sewing before bed,keep warm see you later.Love Jill xxx  P.S sorry the first pic is a bit blurred and the wrong way around.
