Our very short outing with dh went very well, went out to dinner that thursday evening with a couple of his colleagues who is taking the same exams the next day. Quite a very good fish restaurant near the hotel where we stayed. The next day while they went to school i drove to a friend's place, my very first time to go alone with the car in the mainland, atleast about 30 minutes drive. I was quite nervous but i am really happy with the navigation system, i reach the place fine and back in the afternoon to pick up hubby for home. All the time, i am at the steering wheel and feel more confident when hubby is beside me, though i tend to make mistakes when he's in the car with me but still for most of the time i prefer if he's with me. But i really need to get use to being alone as it will be the case when he's away for work.
Yesterday came our friends for the weekend, mother and son. Actually quite a sad story with these two. It was the father's funeral last friday, died of cancer after 10 months discovering about it, he was only 43 years old. They were divorce for more than a year when it was discover and he has a new girlfriend. To make the story short, our friend the mother of the child isn't welcome to visit or whatever and isn't welcome for the funeral too. That's where i went to last friday.
The kids would really like to go and and play outside but it was too cold so we took them to one of the open museum here(not many are open here this time of year), to Ecomare. Thought we will be on time to see them feeding the seals but we didn't
manage it. Took most pictures outside, with the seals. If anyone interested you can see or read more about Ecomare on their website. fom left, Çhris, Grace, Julian & jocabel.

They're back home now and she called me an hour ago that they had enjoyed their stay.
As for STITCHING...here is my first update for the "Home is where...". I am doing this project with Tinna and just seen her update which she started from upper right corner while i did the opposite, lower right corner. Next update will be next weekend!!
Finished the fourth quilt block. Will be sending to South Africa tomorrow, hope Leandre's friend will like it. This will be the last block for the a while as i need to complete a couple of items for exchanges and try to work on a few projects that was started last month.
Thank you all so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them all.
