I went to the farm shop to pick up the basket (and a few more things!), it did look prettier than in the photo too, it just got opened for the goodies as soon as I got home! Whilst I was there they had a stall where you just put in a donation and took whatever you fancied. So I found a beautiful embroidered folder that will be home to my knitting and crocheting patterns, some fairy wings that have been secreted away, and some material I have had my eye on for a while too!
And then to top it off, sat in the conseratory this evening, I hear a roaring noise, and then voices from on high! Before I could gather my thoughts Sophie (sat naked on the trampoline) points up and shouts "BALLOON" Sure enough, the lowest I have ever seen a hot air balloon over houses, they were desperately trying to get it to rise, with the heat on virtually constantly!! Sophie was very upset she couldn't get to have a go in it! The photo doesn't do it justice, it was further away by the time I got my act together and grabbed the camera!
