I've been snuffling along this past week with a rather knock out bought of lurgy that Mr Y kindly brought home with him from school. Snuffles and sneezes are an occupational hazard in his job :o) To tick me off even further, I've woken up this morning with a cricked neck which is making even the simplest of tasks painful.
I therefore have very few words for you today (you might consider that to be a good thing!) but I couldn't let the glorious bank holiday slip past without a mention. We certainly made the most of it! It involved some gardening, a BBQ, the historic car run, a trip to the ice cream parlour, DIY (it was a bank holiday after all!), sewing, knitting, crafting, baking and birthday celebrations. (The pictures have loaded in a random order - sorry).

I hope you all had a great weekend, whatever it was filled with, and think, in just 17 days time, we get to do it all again!! :o)
