Smiles on Friday - Week #133

We had friends staying for a few days this week.

The weather was mainly kind and didn't stop us  enjoying ourselves.  We did lots of catching up, eating and drinking.

We spent one day in Stratford-Upon-Avon where we had a lovely boat trip on the River Avon and another day visiting Oxford.

This photo was taken from the top of  the hop-on, hop-off tour bus in Oxford  during a short stop.  I was amused to see lots of these taxis around with Periodic Table written all over them.  A little bit different from the normal black cabs aren't they!

I'm linking this post to A Stitch in time blog, Smiles in Friday.

Tomorrow I'm going to Coleman's  in Rushden  with friends for a workshop "Christmas in August".  We  make four cards using the same stamp then take the stamp home with us.  I'm looking forward to it a lot.  On Sunday I'll have two football matches to watch back to back.  The perfect weekend for me.

I hope you all have a good weekend.

Hi Barb, just popped across from Darnell's blog! I wanted to say "hello, new friend" I'm happy to be your latest follower and hope to visit as often as I can - although I am going to be without internet for a whole month from next Friday - so I'm off to have a look around now, before I go. I have enjoyed looking at the photos here on this page. Have a great day! Hazel xx

Oh you had a lovely time with your visitors. I've never been to Oxford, but it's on my list of things to see. I love the taxis with the Periodic Table on them. Very scientific!
Have a great week,

Haa Haa! on first glance these looked like they had tape measures painted on them...perfect for a sewer!! I have had a little bi of wine tonight though. Don't they look great.
Been too long since I went to Stratford.
Your workshop sounds like fun.
