Grannying and Glamping.

Golly I have had a busy few weeks. We have had the lovely privilege of having my daughter and family stay for two weeks. Her hubby is studying hard for his CFA stage 3 exam, which takes place this coming weekend. This meant that we were able to celebrate her birthday together.

Ayla in her favourite pose - being held and fingers in her mouth! Just like her mummy 26 years ago.

Here is my daughter cradling her lovely bag of wool.

Butterfly gloves knitted by older sister.

Spent a rather cold afternoon at a local park and then curry for tea and birthday cake.

Then this weekend gone we went glamping, in Somerset. Our older daughter introduced us to this wonderful website Canopy and Stars. Here is Mollycraft.

We had a wonderful time chilling out - no wifi, no television just a cd player, books, crossword books and knitting.

Mollycraft was a show wagon. She probably was once owned by a circus.

The ceiling is painted in keeping with tradition. The tourers like to see countryside outside their windows and also enjoy nature inside.

Saturday we ventured into Wells. This is somewhere we have never  visited, but oh what a delightful place. We were told of a market and that's why we initially went.

Then we went to The Bishop's Palace. It is 800 years old and obviously home to the bishop. The gardens were stunning and we were there with the sun shining.

There were many wonderful views of Wells Cathedral from the gardens.

This is the part that the bishop lives in. Suggested to Mr P that he should change his religion and see if he could make it to bishop!

I didn't want to leave the gardens but we needed time to visit the cathedral.

I don't know any architectural terminology but I loved all the lines and all the angles they made.

After the cathedral we then went to visit Vicars Close - this street is the only one in Europe with all its old houses still standing.

Back to the Molly for some wine, dinner and knitting. This is my latest project it is a Fern Shawl. No not a hat.

I'm really enjoying creating this garment. Long way to go yet and it will surely need blocking. Sunday we went to a local national trust and sadly time for home. Unfortunately today has not been quite so good. It started with a car running into the side of me as I was cycling to work. Amazingly even though I went onto the car bonnet I have only got very bad bruising and no broken bones, also Wrennie should be ok too.
