Wow. I can't believe it has been so long since I last wrote anything. It has been a busy few weeks. I spent a lot of time preparing for the Weeting Steam Rally, which to be honest turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. I spoke to lots of the other stall holders and they all said the same but still it was an experience. And I was in a better position than some who didn't manage to cover their costs. And I met a lovely couple selling soap who sent a bar over to cheer us up.
Following the weekend I popped over to see the inlaws, (brother and sister not parents), and spent a couple of days being looked after and fed and playing with my great, (yes thats right), niece and chatting with her mum. They had come down for the weekend from South Shields to see Dad/Grandad. I feel I should be in my eighties when I say i'm a great aunt not in my twenties. Funny old world huh!
However the best bit of news for the week is my parents came to see me today my Mum was ever so excited as she had something to bring me but wouldn't let on what it was. My Dad came in with what appeard to be a rather heavy box and they both sat on the edge of their seats while I sorted the baby things and made a pot of tea. When I finally got round to it I thought my Mum was going to explode. I am now the proud and very excited owner of my very own rolling mill. I still am not quite sure why my Mum decided that she wanted to get me one or what I did to deserve it and I couldn't quite believe it when I opened the box and pulled off the plastic. What a fantastic end to the week. When I have got it properly set up and had time to play with it i'll post some pics.
The only thing I'd ask for to top it off would be a phone call from the hubby. Maybe tomorrow hey!
