Taking a blog break while house sitting

Just to let you know that I'm off to look after my sons house while he and his family are off to Ireland to sort some of the details for their wedding next year ...and also have a few days at Emma's family caravan.
Jake is so much better and I cant wait to see him... if only for a day before they are away. ...A big thank you from all of us,to all who kept him in their thoughts.

 I thought I would take the oportunity to have a Blog  rest... and  hopefully I will return to the keys with energy and some crafting to show ...maybe ... and some knitting projects too.

Thought you might like to share this day at the beach ....not planned but we had sun for a whole day...yes I kid you not ... and I had picnic munchies in the freezer....we actually only spent money on icecream ....thats what I call a good day out....and the boys really enjoyed themselves.

 Barneby and Ellie are gradually being introduced to the others and making friends with them too. With some there is little hope that friendship will grow but as long as they learn to tollerate each other thats fine.

This is Rusty and Barneby ...Rusty was a sleep ....Barneby thought he would wake him..... and then found a nipple !!!!! Rusty let him know that he was not  his mum and found the whole thing a little unnerving as you can see from his face. 
They are good friends but Rusty keeps forgetting that he is so much bigger and stronger than the little ones when they play fight.













I'm off now .....will be back in a couple of weeks or so ....
Take Care xx

So very nice to meet you! I am so looking forward to getting to know you and being a new friend and follower.
This world of blogging is amazing and yet we all need to take breaks from it now and then.
I myself have really slowed down this summer because of so much to do out here on the North Forty.
Glad you had a nice day at the beach.
Enjoy your stay at your sons.
See you soon
Maggie

Hi Angie
Just been reading your diet blog and thought I would add my findings.

I have been on a non wheat/gluten diet for a few weeks now and have lost weight, I know its a bit of a faff having to buy special stuff but I think it works.
I buy a loaf of 'Brown Genius' bread from Tesco and keep it for just me, also Asda do nice biscuits non gluten and non wheat and pasta etc and lots more.
If you read up on the effects of wheat and gluten it has some really nasty side effects if you are not tolerant of it.
Even the thyroid can be affected.
Just thought I'd pass it on, it worked for me.
Have a nice blog break
