It's been a relaxing but somewhat damp week here. We got off to such a nice dry sunny start then the weather went downhill. At least we managed a trip out to one of my favourite places, last Saturday was Apple Day at Kingston Maurward near Dorchester.
What now seems like an age ago I used to run courses here as part of my job. It was always my favourite venue and I loved arriving really early (for me) when it was very quiet and watching the geese by the lake and occasionally deer on the lawn. Now however a visit is pure pleasure...

First stop was the animal park for a bit of oohing and aahing, stroking and the compulsory asking to take them all home.

Once we'd put our foot down and said no we really didn't have room for a donkey (I know we're spoilsports...) the little Jammers were off and away to the gardens.

We pretty much followed them round.

Until we came to the best bit... the folly.
I love follies. You can't beat a good folly for a bit of posing and playing.
I have numerous pictures of my children in this one and always have to have an updated version.

This time Eldest Jammer insisted the grown ups must join in too, so much silliness was had by all.

Just time for a lap of the lake.

View of the folly from across the lake.

And a sword?... of course.

The rest of our week has mostly been taken up with visiting friends or having friends to play here so my making has been limited which is no bad thing. Just three pretty vintage barkcloth bags which my new 'chief photographer' has just captured in the garden this morning! She fancies one for her knitting whereas I might not part with the zingy starburst one, it's my favourite colour.

Taking my little witches to a Halloween event tonight then I'll possibly be at Bridport Vintage Market on Sunday if a) the weather holds and b) the van starts - he's been very naughty this morning!
