Flaming June!

Can you see the rain on the window screen and the complete whiteout?
Yes, we decided to take a flask of tea, some bickies, a book (for wonderful man) and some crochet (for me) up to a viewing area on the Buttertubs Pass road. A couple of hours of peace and quiet, beautiful views and a spot of crocheting, no phones, no TV, no radio, just a little quality time together. Well it was'nt quite like that. We did have a couple of hours of quality time together sat in a rain cloud with the rain bouncing off the bonnet, and the howling wind rocking the car!

This is sneaky dog. The face says it all. "Can we go home now... pleeeeease?"

This photo was taken last Sunday. This is what we should have been able to see out of the window screen.

This is nice big chunk of Wensleydale, with Hawes just visable in the centre.

Oh well! Looking on the bright side, I enjoyed two cups of tea, one mini battenburg cake curtesy of Mr Kipling , too many Hobnobs to count, the latest Country Living magazine and made this little pinafore for my crochet bunnys.

I'll leave you with a couple more photos of the view we could'nt see!

This is child #1 taking it all in, and no he hasn't got a strange black growth on the right side of his face. That's sneaky dogs nose!

Isn't it awful - we are glad really as we have dadoing all day and sanding and painting. Just cleared up at 7pm - we have lots loads of buddlia branches and some of the trailing fuschias are a bit tatty. You wouldn't believe it but last night after adding pics I decided I would delete the old ones of the garden as it was when we arrived. I have had them for ages and once I had added the blog pics and deleted them I thought I would freee up some space on the PC.
