I have really enjoyed blogging these past two months. I have been thinking of reasons why I started, & I have come to the conclusion that it is because I am using it as a diary. It is a great way of writing down what the little men & I are up to. It will be nice to look back in a years time or more to see how much the little men have grown & for them to read as well (once they can read!!!!)
I also love showing my knitting & crochet projects, though I haven't had much time lately to do any. I hope you people out there enjoy reading my blog & I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment or two to let me know.

Yesterday we went to Tunbridge Wells with Jo. The town is divided into two halves, the top end where the shopping mall is & the bottom end with the High Street & The Pantiles. I much prefer the bottom end with its individual little shops & cafes, so this is where we headed for.
First we went to Hoopers Store, I love the kitchen department.
These bowls & plates would be great for a children's party ......
The little men enjoying a cold glass of lemonade.
There is a wonderful kitchen shop on the Pantiles that I could spend all day looking around
Then we walked back up the High Street & of course we had to go into Kath Kidson. I was very good & didn't buy anything this time.
Look at this sweet crocheted tea pot & cups that was in a childrens shop.

She invited us over to see the new arrivals, which the little men were very excited about.
Beckie suggested we take the dogs for a walk. Thinking she meant just to the end of her lane & back I said "yes great", little did I know.....
View looking back to the village
We walked past some beautiful country houses ......
The view towards Snape Woods ......
The little people had great fun splashing in the little stream ......
Little man no. 1 hitching a ride with baby P ......
It was a lovely walk & the little people enjoyed it, though everyone was pooped out at the end & I was gasping for a nice long cold drink.

Today the little men & I went to the Heathfield show with friends Beckie, H & baby P. I have never been before, why? What a brilliant day out for the family, so much to see & do. We packed up a picnic of cold chicken, sausages, french bread, crisps & yummy goodies.
The boys loved watching the monster trucks flattening cars!
Yummy food, why does it always taste nicer outdoors?
Loved all the animals on show & for sale, I was very tempted to buy some Quails, they are so sweet & their eggs are yummy too.
What a handsome chap & very proud of himself.
Oh how I long to have a place like my parents old house that is big enough to have hens & ducks & to have a vegetable garden, maybe a small orchard too.
There where lots of stalls selling local produce, cheeses, breads, jams & wines to name a few.
Boys taking it easy......
Boys & their toys, maybe one day......
There was a bouncy castle & slide for the children that was very popular, though rather expensive at £1.50 for 2 slides.
We all really enjoyed ourselves & the weather stayed nice too.
