It's nice to be on holiday

Hello Everyone from a rather rainy England today.  We have had some really lovely weather but today it has decided that the gardens need a drink.  We have been up in North Yorkshire for the last week in a pretty little town called Whitby.  Great connections with NZ for my NZ readers as it is where Captain James Cook sailed from on his discovery voyages to Australia and New Zealand.  Lots of history, lots of interesting places to visit and LOTS of hills and steps to walk up and down.  It has been lovely and we drove back down to Derbyshire today and will be based here now until our return home.  There was a great craft shop in Whitby and I got some good bargains on some lovely papers.  Trouble is  paper weighs so much!!!  Next Saurday we head up to Doncaster (which is also in Yorkshire) to a large craft expo.  I'll let you know how I get on.  Hope you are all enjoying your crafting days and thanks for checking in today.
