Climb Every Mountain ........

Hi folks, finally got round to writing my Blog.
I'm being lazy and have managed to download my pics onto my netbook.
Well I've finally got  to the top of the mountain.
Woolfest weekend was the pinnicle in what has been a very hard climb .
The Wednesday evening before Woolfest I was calm as anything . No butterflies about towing the caravan , nothing. I even slept like a baby .I towed the van up to Cumbria without a care in the world .
On Thurday afternoon after I'd finished setting up I had the most overwhelming feeling of joy and elation. I can't put it into writing how powerful the feeling was but it was good .
I'd finally done it , I'd got to the top.
The weekend went brilliantly.
 I'm afraid i've only got pics of the stall
Because we were so busy I didn't have time to take any more .
We had the best Woolfest ever and it was good to be back after a two year break .
I made some new friends and caught up with old ones .Sadly some were missing this year but i'll be catching up with them later in the year :0)
Now the hols .
We made the 340 mile journey down to Cornwall with a slight detour, on the way down, to see our eldest . We did the same going home and it was good to catch up .Wish he lived nearer ,though we do catch up on Skype now .More of that later .
We had a lovely time but wished the weather could have been better. Cue Pics :0)
 Seaton Beach
 This the view of our apartments from the beach. you can see how close to the sea they are.
 This is the view from the balcony of the apartment at dusk.
 There was full moon whilst we were down there. It looks quite tropical doesn't it .
The sea on a very rough day .
It was brilliant being so close to the sea. every night I was rocked to sleep by the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. I think I was a mermaid in a former life . I just love being by the sea .

Now as I said earlier we have signed up for Skype .It's great. We can now see our two Grandbears ,who live 240 miles away , more often . We've missed such a lot of their growing up with them living so far away . but now we can do Grandparent things with them . The other night we even showed the youngest how to knit left handed  . He was thrilled to bits .
Another bit of news is we've got a new caravan .The old one is giving up the ghost. I'll be sad to see it go as we have travelled a lot of miles with it but it's got to go . We'll be picking up the new one next month when I'll post pics Well there's a few kilos of freshly dyed wool waiting to be reskeined ready for Fibre East later this month so i'd better get cracking :0)
