Boys and their toys, a bear and his jumper....

On Monday I had an unplanned trip to Teesside. Son in law Steve was due to have his race day at Croft the following day and Libby wanted some company while he raced around in various cars. And to point the video camera at the racing track and hopefully catch a car or two. I am not a particular fan of fast cars really (prefer motor bikes) but it was quite a fun day. I am not that good at videoing. But did get a fairly good still picture of Steve in a yellow Ferrari! (with my camera)

It was a sunny day but I was glad of a warm coat gloves and scarf. My fingers were numb by the end of it. We had lunch after the morning's activity then went to a farm shop on the way back to Bradford There were some lovely llamas

and a very nice pregnant donkey

I love donkeys they always look so gentle. It took us ages to get home due to the traffic at Wetherby and on the M62

Biddle is pleased he has got yet another jumper

I can now post a picture of my challenge doll. She didn't do very well but then I didn't expect her too. I still cannot get to grips with faces. I am just going to have to practise practise practise. But I did enjoy making her and that is the important part. I am not good at joining in things as I never win at anything but you have to be in it to win it as they say.

She is my interpretation of Dallandra a wise woman of the Elves in the Deverry series of books that I frequently reread.

I have just began another doll from a pattern that I bought several years ago but there is nothing worth showing yet.

it's Easter weekend and the cricket season begins today so its bound to be cold

Wishing you and yours a lovely Easter weekend! I hope some chocolate is involved.

Actually Wendy, how is Easter celebrated over there?

Could you please tell me how you added your ticker to your blog? I made one and tried to add it, but it didn't work. :(

The race track looks like fun, even though it wasn't your thing. And doesn't Biddle look smashing in his new jumper! I love those stripes!

Biddie is looking stylin'. I bet Chia Kitty will be jealous!
