See you there!


By the time you read this, I'll be on my way to Yorkshire to help set up for this year's Yarndale festival.  I love the setting up as much as the festival itself and ooh, it's going to be a good one this year!  I've been very excited to read the exhibitor list and see that there are going to lots of new exhibitors as well as familiar faces - don't worry, I'll be sure to tell you all about it (whether you like it or not!) when I get back.

DJ Winwick Mum

Another weekend already!  I hope you're having a good one!  

It's been another busy week here - small daughter is still loving high school  and had a new friend over to play (it's been a big relief to know that her first couple of weeks have been a success and yes, they're still at that age when they "play", which is lovely) and big daughter went back to university this weekend.  She's not very far away from us and it suits us all very well for her to come home whenever she feels like it, although I'm not sure that I always appreciate all the washing that comes back with her, or the food that disappears from the fridge when she leaves again!

You'll see that the title of this post is "DJ Winwick Mum" - no, I'm not about to become a disco queen or take to the airwaves, but as I was writing it struck me that all of the things I want to tell you about are connected, so I hope you'll forgive my DJ links! :) 

First up, Yarndale looms ever closer - it's next weekend!   Are you coming up to Skipton?  You are going to be stunned by this year's Yarndale Sock Line if you are - there are so many pairs of socks and they are all beautiful.  Such a range of sizes too, we're going to be keeping toes cosy from the tiniest to the largest pairs of feet and that's amazing!

First week back

Hello, and how are you?  

Safe and dry, I hope - the weather this week has been quite wet and wild, the tail end no doubt of the hurricane which has battered the Caribbean and east coast of America.  Whilst a bit of heavy rain here has been nothing compared to what people there are going through, it makes you realise that we are all connected in some way on our small blue planet and we have an obligation to keep it safe so that we can keep all of us safe.  I send my thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by Hurricane Irma and hope that it blows itself out soon.

It's also the end of the first week back to school for us; this year it's been the same but different as small daughter has gone to high school and our school runs to the primary school are over.  Am I missing them?  Not at the moment!  Neither is small daughter who has thoroughly enjoyed her first week at high school and is looking forward to next week already.  I have to say that the first morning's achievement of being up and dressed by 6am wasn't repeated, but we've not had any issues with getting her out of the house on time!
