A dutiful wife....


It's not that often that Hubz has to be away for work over a weekend.... anyway this time he did so I decided to be dutiful and leave the comfort of my home and accompany him....

Of course a dutiful wife keeps her hands busy so whilst sitting in the car for the road trip I carried on with knitting washcloths.  One got finished and the other one started on the trip home....


 I'm sure you feel sympathy for me having to go to a place where the blue goes on and on forever.....


beautiful weather - warm enough for a paddle.  



It's very hard to be put out where I am not in control of everything - I couldn't even do my own cooking!  We had a delicious Thai meal out the first night... and Chinese the next....


On Saturday when Hubz went of to work, I amused myself by a lovely long walk.... I was enjoying it so much I lost track of time then realised I had to get back again!  


Now in case you think Hubz is just too hard on me I have to let you know there is a tender side to him... we had access to Fox Sports so I was allowed to watch him flicker through footy, rugby, cricket, back to rugby, some car racing, more footy..... 

Such fun and I squeezed in some stitching whilst I could but it was hard as it was all so rivetting....



I also had a lovely time with friends too and visited a couple of Patchwork shops in the area... silly me forgot to take photo's... but the muffin with coffee was particularly delicious.....

I had a couple of hours quiet in the mornings too and finished off this Dutch Treat Block....



... this Splendid Sampler block......



... and also this Splendid Sampler block....


It was lovely having a variety of small portable projects to take and do....

Righto, I'm so excited to be back home, with all that pile of washing and ironing to do...

  10. Thank goodness you suffered through all that torture, so you could come home to cooking and cleaning and laundry. To be forced to walk along the sea and have someone else do the cooking?!?! Horrors.

  12. That sounds like the perfect way to get away, just relax and enjoy the day with beautiful setting and stitching.
    Mine took off for the week but company plane and I can't go on that, so stuck at home.
