Guess where we had lunch today? OK, not much guessing involved as the box says it all; yep, we managed a trip to Bettys in Ilkley, although the boys weren’t exactly playing ball, which is a shame as they are normally quite good at sitting and eating nicely in restaurants. We persuaded them to sit still with the promise of a trip to the awesome playground nearby that they love, I like to see it as rewarding their good behavior and not a bribe, it makes me feel better.
I brought back a few treats, as you do.
We then stopped off at Fents in Skipton for me to buy some new tweeds. It’s one of those places that is chock-full of largely things I’m not interested in, but the tweed section had me drooling. A lot of the tweeds were familiar from my favourite Ebay seller who is based in Keighly and I assume gets his supplies from the same Mills (they are largely remnants and end of lines), in fact the red tweed above is exactly the same one as I am using for the Foxes, so that’s a bonus.
I even found some Liberty Tana Lawn at – get this – £7 for the meter!!! Really can’t do better than that, a second trip may be required.
Now I’m now off to have a sneaky early glass of wine and sew some Fox capes, we have another busy day tomorrow with some special bits planned for the boys and my Brother might be popping in tonight. I really am enjoying myself 🙂
