A Lazy Sunday

Today we went to Tattershall Castle, we were keen to see the exhibition they are holding - The House Of Bling.
I really don't understand where that title came from and neither did a lot of the other visitors. It wasn't worth going to see, even the staff aren't impressed with it.
The castle however was worth going to see and always is. I love the castle for its architecture, the fireplaces are quite spectacular as well.

This picture shows the remains of the kitchen. I have to say that is my kind of kitchen - non existent!

After the dissappointment of Tattershall we went to the Hub at Sleaford to see the exhibition by the 62 Group (Bending the Line), and that was worth seeing.
Yesterday Linda Rudkin came to the shop to give a workshop on Flower Pounding. I hadn't met Linda before but she is a lovely lady and everyone enjoyed the workshop.
You can just see Linda in this picture standing at the far right.

Here are some pictures of the ladies working hard. They produced some beautiful work and all from a few flowers and weeds from the garden, or if you are Margaret you stop at the train crossing whilst the barriers are down, jump out of the car and scour the roadside for anything interesting.

You can see Margaret here laughing her head off, she does this a lot!

Here she is again, you wouldn't think she used to be deputy headmistress at a primary school. I bet she told all the children to pay attention in class.

Joking apart Margaret is lovely lady who likes to life to the full and who can blame her :-)

This week I have discovered that there are a few people who read my blog and don't leave comments. If you are one of these secret readers it would be nice to hear from you if only to let me know that I am not talking to myself. I do enough of that at home.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

I read it Angela so you're not talking to yourself! Good to see Margaret enjoying herself.

Surprise! Surprise! Guess who? I am not one of those people who read your blogs and make no comment! Have you guessed who I am yet? Well, I did pay attention in class with Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you. Once again , thank you and I will see you again soon.

I talk to myself in the street! Even more worrying! LOL

I was pleased to read your comments on the Tattershall Castle exhibits as sI had thought of going but I probably won't rush over there now. What a shame for the artists concerned though.

The flower pounding workshop sounds fun. I shall have to keep a closer eye on your workshop programme! I've got my eye on next February but maybe I shouldn't say too much or it will sell out. Just waiting for a timely moment to get a pass-out from my DH! ;-)
