Wet fun in a hilltop town

Minx, Monster and I set off in a state of high excitement today for a summer holiday meet up with the Hilltop Folk in their natural habitat. A day at the beach had been ruled out - thanks to the, unfortunately accurate, weather forecast.

The dismal weather didn't stop us having fun.

There was a game of musical dance round the old-man-dog.....who joined in with great enthusiasm :)

There was a lovely healthy lunch, complete with expertly soft boiled eggs and candycorn ;p

We then donned wellies and raincoats and collected various dogs for a walking tour of the sights of the beautiful Hilltop. Even in the rain this is a gorgeous town and we've vowed to return on a sunny.....or even dry!..... day.

Then it was back to Trash Towers for a movie, nestled in every bit of bed linen the beasties could lay their hands on, and Trash and I were able to talk knitting, quilting, families and blogging - while the dogs snoozed around us :)


If you look closely you'll see the gorgeous quilts made for the Trashlets by their Gran - the photo just doesn't do them justice. In fact, the combination of these quilts and Trash's fabric stash may just have sparked a little sewing urge.......fingers crossed!

Our hostess did us proud - she's obviously had expert training!

Thanks for a fab day Trashy - it was sooo great to see you all again and we will definately be back for more - I'll bring the couscous ;)

Glad you had a good time. Nothing like a good duvet party to make the day go with a zing.

Your cous-cous was undoubtedlythe best ever. No-one can boil water like you ;-)

Gorgeous quilts but tell us more about this couscous. Sounds my sort of recipe if it just involves boiling water...

Sounds like fun to me. I need a map so I can visualize where all you girls live.
