5 hours at Eurotunnel!!!

We rearranged the holiday we had to cancel a few weeks ago and were booked to go on Eurotunnel yesterday morning.After problems on Friday we had an email on Saturday morning saying to turn up as normal.We started queuing on the M20 at 10.25am and finally boarded a train at 3.40 pm.What a farce.There were lots of families with young children.No Eurotunnel employees to help.The whole place was totally gridlocked with no one going anywhere.I had a glass of rose and got out my knitting!!!
We finally arrived at our cottage at 7pm.Now to relax for a week and then face it all again next Saturday(hopefully not,fingers crossed because we then have a six hour drive in Britain to home).

I have brought lots of things to do.Shawl elephant to crochet(from Edward's Menagerie),a cross stitch picture to for my granddaughter who is going to Uni inSeptember,four books to read ,magazines and a puzzle book.Maybe ,I will not manage it all!!!!

Where are all the butterflies?

Here in North Wales we have seen very few butterflies this summer.Only Cabbage Whites.We have a buddleia in full flower which normally would be full of butterflies .Not a single butterfly all day.
What is the butterfly situation where you live?

My latest finished project.

Do you remember I won a load,well 26,mini skeins in Josie Kittens giveaway in aid of BHF.What to do ??So I decided to do granny squares and I must say I am pretty pleased with the result.They were very bright colours so I edged them in navy.I have not decided what to with it yet.I really enjoyed doing it because every square was different.
Life goes on here.C is now better following his steroid injection.We didn't go away but had a lazy week in the garden enjoying this glorious weather.We have a holiday booked to Montenegro in September which has to be paid for by the end of the week.Our confidence has been knocked.Do we risk it r do we cancel.Decisions,decisions.It is pretty clear our insurance will not cover us if it happens again.
