What a horrible wet day it is! It was pouring with rain this morning when Bonnie and I went for our walk on the beach, thank goodness for waxed jackets, trousers and hats!! The sea looked steely grey and angry and it was so misty you could hardly see the Isle of Wight and it's only 3 miles across the water so it's usually very clear.

Well I've cleaned the oven and hob (usual Monday morning chore ... yuk!), and I've pickled the onions that I prepared yesterday so this afternoon I am off to my Village Stitchers, a stitching circle that I belong to, I must be mad going out again in this weather but I haven't been for the last two weeks so I feel I ought to show my face.

I've got a busy week this week, I have to get the house cleaned through and the freezer stocked up as we have friends coming for the weekend on Friday, my Brother and his family are coming down from Oxford for the day on Saturday and my eldest Son and his family may also come over, so all in all there could be 15 of us to feed on Saturday!

It was my friend's 60th Birthday at the end of last month so as a special present I stitched this for her, it's done in cross stitch taken from a photograph, I've had it framed and have to say I'm really pleased with the end result, I just hope my friend likes it.
Right I'm off now to brave the elements again.
