The Locket's Pay us a Visit.

On Thursday, after much pleading from our children, Lucy Locket and I got together again, this time at my place. The kids were soooooo excited to see each other again and immediately disappeared into various parts of my house, leaving Lucy and I free to have a cuppa and a natter.
We did a shared lunch each providing a bit of this and a bit of that.
No sooner was it out, than the monsters devoured the lot and I only just managed to get a picture.

The young ladies about to go into year 7 went off into the bedroom to do some sewing and private chit chat and then left us and went for a walk to the allotment.

My eldest and Lucy's youngest got on really well too. Little Fred is soooo cute and my no.1 was so good with him, showing him how to play on her prized possession ( a DS)
Isn't that a sweet shot?

After re-filling the dinning table and dragging the roller blading queens in, we all sat down to watch a movie. There were bean bags and cushions all over the floor, not to mention children, popcorn, chocolate biscuits, etc, etc.

One of my daughters seems to have escaped the photo shoot......little minx!
And before they knew it, it was time to go home. There was much protest, Fred tried to attach himself to the table leg so he couldn't go home, and just look at these 2 hugging!!

Don't worry chicks, you'll see each other next week I'm sure.
Thank you Lucy and the lovely little Lockets for a fab day.
When the children are happy it makes me feel happy to, and having another adult to chat crafty things to is just the icing on the cake.

And finally a picture of Harriet Hare that I made from
here . It's was made with "help" from youngest daughter.

Magic! Having heard all about it from Lucy it's fantastic to see the pics of your lovely day. Rather fancying that lunch and the smartie-topped cake! You've really made me smile. Emma x

We all had such a fantastic time! Thank you so much for having us round to play! You are the most lovely family and we are all desperate to come back again! Daisy hasn't stopped talking about Quilty No.4 and has been moping around saying how much she wants to see her again and Dot has been buried in the book that Quilty 3 lent her - she finished it yesterday and also found the missing needle deep inside her ladybird! Fred is now eagerly waiting for the postie to arrive with his very own Blokus game after loving playing with yours and his two new best friends were so sweet with him. Oh, and Daisy wants to do Clog Dancing with No.4 now!

Thank you all again for a really lovely day!
