A day out and a finish

It's half term here in Leicester so on Wednesday The Husband, The Boy (a.k.a. DS) and me went to the Black Country Living History Museum.  We have been several times before and it is a great day out.  Despite all the modern attractions of the X-Box, Wii, Nintendo etc. the Boy really enjoyed going down the helter skelter on the fairground and was fascinated by hoop rolling which he went back to more than once.

I also finished my Dad's birthday quilt - a week late, but what's a week between family?  He was pleased with it anyway.

We enjoyed the Black Country Museum when we went a few years's a nice reminder of how things used to be.
