    have fun with the kids at the tennis taster.  Tennis was the first racquet sport I played and I was 9years old when I started playing.  I never had any lessons but learnt via reading tennis books from the library, watching tennis and practising.
     
    I played for many years but my Squash and Badminton over took my Tennis as I become a Squash and Badminton coach, and played for my county and started and ran a huge Badminton club.
     
    Isn't it nice when people like what you make.
     
    I'm trying out my new Camera tripod to day as it was a birthday present I received on Wednesday.

    hello all,
     
    Oh i do ache today after that long trip But we had a good day. Didn't see any Amish things at all Linda but we were on the very border of Pennsylvania. My husband likes fireworks but in Virginia they are not allowed to sell fireworks that leave that ground. In Pennsylvania they can sell any fireworks they like as long as they are not let off in that state. Which of course causes a massive loophole in the law. The border of Pennsylvania now plays host to a few big firework companies who ask for your drivers license to prove you're from out of state and make you sign an agreement saying you will get the fireworks out of state within 48 hours. Whilst back in Virginia they think they covered themselves because you can't buy the fireworks here so they don't stop you setting off any fireworks you want. So we have a very expensive 4th of July celebrations planned. It does help that Alia's birthday is the 3 rd and my husbands the 5th
     
    We also visited a chip/crisp factory where you can buy the crisps fresh and see how they are made. We also stopped at an apple market which is like a farm shop.. We bought lots of fresh peaches, blueberries, homemade damson jam (never find any damson's here to make my own and it's my favourite jam) some fresh honey and last but not least I went to an import store and got my fix of orange squash (they don't sell squash here usually, just a powder mix you can add to water) some British chocolate, Bisto, pickled onions (all dill pickles, no pickled onions here) english mustard, brown sauce, baked beans and custard powder. oh and some jaffa cakes
     
    It's going to be very hot in the 30s today so I'm going to sit out on the deck and do as little as possible, we are just going to have chicken with some salad for dinner. 
     
    I do hope your father in law likes his book Eliza, so frustrating when you put so much effort into a gift that they show no appreciation for. 
     
    Good job on tidying your craft stuff Suzie You should get the men to go into work on the next dress down Friday with a sleevless top and bra straps showing because I'm better they weren't given the same rule.
     
    Your amaryllis looks great Linda at the moment my lillies are blooming well.
     
    This is a picture of the outdoor cushions I made this week, still need to make the bench cushion.
     
    have a great day all

    Had a little time thought I would practise some more pyrography still a little shaky it's a lot harder then it looks because you have to hold it higher up otherwise you will get burnt it means you don't feel like you have got great control not like drawing with a pencil..Lisa x
