What happens when your friends husband…

...leaves the keys in the front door and exits the house via the garage using the garage remote control?  Other than the obvious that your friend can’t get into her house it also means that we get to play at crafting for even longer – never a bad thing in my mind.
Today Moya, Lynne and myself went up to Exmouth to a workshop being run by Anja Thys (Ophelia Crafts) and we had a wonderful time creating two cards and decorating a sweet little journal notebook.  We were also shown two other card designs which we could make at home.  Details of how to make these cards can be found on Anja’s You Tube channel.  Anja also treated us to some lovely cherry upside down cakes and coffee – a very enjoyable morning and one we intend to repeat each month.  Anja runs workshops on various days and if you subscribe to her newsletter or e-mail her she will let you have the dates and times.
After the workshop we went to Darts Farm for lunch.  I’d never been there before but Moya and Lynne had – it is definitely somewhere I would go again.  There are lots of locally produced goods for sale there as well as gifts, clothing and toys.  I picked up a couple of relishes and snacks while I was there which I am sure will taste delicious.  After dropping Lynne home I went to take Moya home and was all set to go in for a cup of coffee but we discovered that her husband had left the keys in the door and wasn’t due back until late this evening.  So it was back to my house for an evening meal while Moya tried to contact her husband to let her know what he had done and where she could be found and collected from when he finishes work later.

Looks like you had great fun. Glad you weren't stopped by bad weather.
We love Darts Farm and often call in on our way onto the M5 to go home. i bought some rosebud tea there last time, very unusual and delicate.
