We took the dog for a walk last night and ended up going past North Foreland lighthouse and down through the fields to Elmwood Farm.

You couldn't have asked for a better evening.

I took this photo on my mobile phone and I haven't played with it at all, pretty good if I do say so myself, trouble is the place is so photogenic you couldn't do too much wrong.

We went away in the caravan the other weekend down to Cottington Lakes at Deal, its a nice site with lots of space, a bar and for my motley crew - lots of fishing.

So while they were very happy catching fish, I chilled out, relaxed and caught up on some reading.

We then had a BBQ and our friend bought her fire basket along, so we had a real fire and toasted marshmallows which the kids loved.

What a very relaxing weekend.

I am not very good with pastry and do try and avoid making and cooking with it. But my hubbie decided he fancied a quiche and I really don't like shop bought ones. So I braved the pastry making and look at the result - fantastic, only problem was it didn't last long!!!

Margate Harbour

This is a shot of the new Turner centre from the Harbour Arm at Margate. This was quite a difficult picture to take as I was trying to hold my nose at the same time, as the stench was unbelievable.

It made me feel quite sick for a long time after.

We had decided to have a wander along the Harbour Arm last Friday but unfortunately they was nothing open apart from the cafe but the smell was so bad we beat a hasty retreat into the old town. We found a few interesting shops open and had a nice chat with a few people, but it needs a shed load of money to transform the area. The architecture is there, some of the old shops would look wonderful repaired and used again.

We live in hope, Thanet Hope.

P.S Don't forget the Kite Festival at Margate Beach this weekend, it was truly amazing last year, fingers crossed for nice weather.

I thought I would show you a picture of one of my creations. I bought the allsort beads and assembled them on a bracelet. I have made a necklace and a stretchy bracelet as well. As soon as the littleun goes back to school I am going to try to make the allsorts myself - should be interesting. I have also been experimenting with shrink plastic, it has lots of possibilities - watch this space!
