The old ryhme "Red sky at night, Shepherds delight" rang true this weekend. We have been having some great sunrises and sunsets this week, but Saturday nights display was by far the best.

At the weekend, hubby and I decided to visit the Craft & Food Fair at Welbeck. It was on for 2 days and is a great place to buy individual gifts. The food is always amazing and locally produced. We came away with bag loads of goodies. The crafts are the best I have ever seen. I didn't take any photographs but I can honestly say that the standard of craftmanship on display is truly outstanding and original.

I pride myself on my thrifty ways, and was dead chuffed to have found this wonderful cook book for £1.50 in a charity shop.

Through Facebook, I had discovered that a chap from Elsecar Heritage Centre had organised an 8 mile stroll on Sunday talking about the Fitzwilliam family and mining in the area along the way. As it was free, and very close to home, I thought it was worth joining to see if we could learn something about our local history. So with a picnic lunch packed, and a beef casserole prepared in the slow cooker, we set off.

After our visit to the Cutty Sark, we headed to the really large park in Greenwich to have a quick look at what else was on offer. By now it was almost dusk. We found the worlds largest ship in a bottle behind the maritime museum.
Meridian Line. A place that has been on my "list" since I was about 10 years old.
