On the sunday caught ferry into torquay which was lovely looked round the little shops had a cream tea and just enjoyed the sunshine and people watching they call it the english riveria and it felt great , the ferry back was choppy as unbelievably it was overcast the whole time in paignton whilst the rest of the country enjoyed heatwave we went to the only place it wasnt we drove down to totnes then home next time we are going to salcombe as told very nice cant wait , really you cant beat the british seaside love it , my pics won't upload will add later

crochet and a cake called herman

Have not blogged for ages have not had time , so here i am and going to show a little of my crochet ,its only a practice piece so the colours are a bit odd ,soon I'm going to start a blanket for my daughter as she wants me to crochet her one ,I've only been to 2 classes so not doing to bad as left handed that's my excuse anyway ha ! one of my problems is counting into each hole as I'm so carried away i do to many then have to undo or my teach does she is very patient as cack handed that's what they call me , please comment on what you see good or bad as all helps . the other thing that i have had this week is a friendship cake called Herman he is a sour dough cake who i have to stir so many days when he bubbles and feed him with the ingredients off the recipe that came with him but i think as we went away the weekend he may have died I'm going to continue and will see in 3-4 days time the outcome I'm meant to pass some on ,I'm rubbish at keeping things alive i killed my orchid which was a present within weeks i looked after a hamster years ago went round to feed it and as there flat was so cold he had froze to death i felt so awful i cried loads did find out few weeks later i was pregnant so hormones and dying hamster didn't go well.

Just over a month ago i got told about this zumba class, i had heard of it and me and my friend thought we would go as part of our fitness madness thing we have going on,  Oh my goodness love love love it considering i have no dance coordination  yes i do end up going the wrong way legs arms not quite going where they should but not the only one so its ok, i only actually know two of the songs shakira and greek dance where your in a circle ohh i cant remember the name the rest never heard of but love them so catchy and i feel for that one hour like shakira ( i wish ) ha shaking my booty and every other bit of me  .So saying this ever so slightly chuffed have added one of the songs we do this is not  us ok just you tube and dance is similar to ours they all adapt .
