I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing holiday. This Easter has been very pleasant; lots of chocolate, sunshine, reading and a spot of dog-sitting. The past couple of months have been a lot busier on the work front which is wonderful however the extra hours and catching up with friends and family has meant that this space has been put on the back burner. Very little crafting has occurred. Easter has marked the end of excess focus on work and I am ready to concentrate on more creative things now. Hooray.
Summer has gone by so fast and thank goodness really...the weather was disappointing. Autumn has been putting on a fantastic show so we have been going on lots of picnics to make the most of it. Chelsea Sugar Refinery has been on the 'to visit' list for a long while.

After getting a little lost Mr. Fox and I had a very quick picnic ( we were chased off by a cold wind) and scout about. There were a family of swans on the ponds and the cygnets were super cute. We weren't keen to get close as the parents looked a little intimidating.

|Hehe the little ones keep rolling down the slope as the slept!|
|Perfect place to watch the clouds drift by|
A small visitor ventured inside a couple of weeks ago. Not sure if it was a moth or butterfly. The wings were raggy round the edges and it seemed a little worse for wear despite this he was hard to coax out the window and back into the garden. Quite the escape artist as we tried to catch him.
|Hello little one.|
|Thrifty lunch. Crumbs only evidence left from hot cross buns!|
