Well, it's Saturday again already. Can't believe that another week has gone by. It's been so special having the family here again, but they go back on Monday :( Never mind, they'll be home again in early June for the wedding!
Daughter who is getting married was on the phone this morning, very excited, as they have booked a vintage camper van to take the bride, her dad, (hubby!), Ruby, Eli and my eldest granddaughter, to the wedding venue. The camper van is called Ruby, so they thought it was very appropriate.
Ruby the Camper Van!
My eldest granddaughter and I went out to lunch today and then we went to see the film "Red Riding Hood". If any of you have ever seen the Twilight saga, then it was a little bit like that. I really enjoyed it!
It was really interesting to see Julie Christie, the 60's screen icon, playing the grandmother in this film.
On Thursday evening we held a quiz evening for Children's Hospice South West where hubby was once again the Quizmaster. About 80 people attended and it was a real fun evening. We always provide supper and at the end of the evening we had raised £635, so another good result.
Last week we held a Fashion Show in aid of Save the Children and raised £1,000, so it all helps. It really is wonderful how people support us again and again for these functions.
I have been trying to keep up with all your posts during this past week. The saddest one was from Desiree from Driftwood Ramblings who told us that her daughter, Linda, had lost their much loved puppy, Romeo. Apparently, Romeo was out for a walk with the family dogs and inexplicably bolted through a fence onto a road and was knocked down and killed.
The good news is that I have just read today that Linda has turned this into something positive and, first of all adopted Coco, a rescue pup from the same Animal Shelter, and, secondly, she has taken to raising funds for this very worthy cause.
It's amazing how with our blogging family we share the ups and the downs of family life. I don't know about you, but I feel that I know each and every one of you. I know I can say with confidence that if I ever needed it, you would all be there with your support and encouragement.
I was going to post a few photos for you today, but I think I will save them for my 'Sunday Snaps' feature if that's alright with you.
See you tomorrow!
