Sunflowers!!

 Oh my goodness I can't believe its over a week since I posted here.  I had a fabulous weekend away for my Wedding Anniversary ( thanks for all the good wishes) and we were so lucky with the weather, it didn't rain once.  We well and truly spoilt ourselves with two delicious meals out and had fun on the beach and visiting various places.

Since I have been back I have been really busy and not had any time for crafting till today.  I wanted to have a go at Vera's challenge over at the Lily Pad, its quite a simple card but my mojo is playing up at the moment and its all I could think off.  Lets hope it returns soon!!!



Here care three quick photo's, we went to Hix's Oyster Restaurant in Lyme Regis and this was my starter. 


Doesn't it look pretty on the plate, a real work of art and delicious too, this is pureed beetroot with goats cheese, toasted hazelnuts and wild garlic flowers!!


This is the main course and a view from our table out across the harbour and a view off the cobb at Lyme.  My meal was a crab curry, very messy as the crab was served in the shell but really delicious so worth the curry fingers!!


This is hubby on the beach at Charmouth fossil hunting, although its sunny we had to keep our jackets on as there was a cold wind,  it was well worth the hunt , he was lucky enough to find a really rare ammonite.

I promise I will catch up with some blogs this week as things have quietened down a bit now.

Oh goodness, you are making me hungry for something nice and spicy! Those meals look delicious and I am extremely jealous of the view! I love those sunflowers on your card Sally, and the beaded one is extra special! Welcome back, and just know that I will also be absent from commenting as we start to load up the seafreight for our journey back to South Africa!

Lovely card Sally, and it looks like you had a great time in Lyme. My uncle had a bungalow just outside the town with beautiful views across a wood that was filled to the brim with bluebells every spring. The area holds some very happy memories for me, Jo x

So glad you had a great time away. The food does look delicious. I love how you gave that center flower the focus with its dimension, color and pretty pearls. Welcome back!
