A weekend in Cambridge

Finally after my knee op we felt we could travel to Cambridge to see our son,his wife and our three grandchildren.We had awful journeys there and back but I survived.Part of Saturday we spent in the Sedgewick Museum with the dinosaurs!Whenwe got back Ella(10) disappeared upstairs to her room and we didn't see her for ages.Anyway after tea there was much whispering with Mum and Dad and she appeared with presents for us both.She had knitted C a case for his mobile phone and me a little container for threads.Both had applique on them.This is what she had been doing in her room.We were so touched and the best news is I have a knitting granddaughter!!
Sunday morning we went to Cambridge university Botanic garden which is magnificent.(see above pictures).Everything was much further on than here in North Wales and the winter garden was superb.It helped that the sun was shining and it was really warm.They have a grass maze and Ella,Angus (3) and Matt (Finlay (6) was at a party) spent almost an hour chasing round it.We sat in the sun and watched!
Too quickly it was over and we were on our way back home having had a lovely weekend.

  2. Lovely gardens and congratulations on having a knitting grandchild and sewing as well.

  3. Oh you were quite near me - well 30 miles or so. It does seem to be warming up a bit down here but not quick enough! I love going for the day out in Cambridge especially in the summer - the river is so pretty.

  4. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. We used to live not too far from Cambridge and I always enjoy visiting so it was nice to read about your visit. How lovely that your grandchild made presents for you:)
