I'm baaaaack!

Did ya miss me?

Actually, we've been back since last Saturday. We had a lovely, restful time in Cornwall but now I'm absolutely frazzled again trying to catch up with everything.

So this Saturday Sky is a bit of a cheat. It's not the Saturday sky here in less-than-sunny Essex but a Saturday sky - in gloriously sunny Cornwall. Showing a cliff face at Porth Beach, near Newquay, two Saturdays ago to be precise. If you look closely, towards the upper left-hand corner, you can just make out the crescent moon.

Catching up with my emails is taking the longest. If you've written to me I will - eventually - reply. The biggest problem - well, it's not really a problem and it's self-inflicted anyway - is the volume of emails I get from Gathering Threads, a thread crochet Yahoo! Group. Several hundred a day! But they're all so wonderful - interesting discussions about techniques, thread suggestions, lovely pictures of everyone's creations and then, of course, all those fabulous lacey patterns that I just have to try. Assuming I live to be 943.

Anyway, I hope to be back on schedule for next Saturday's sky. And once I edit the rest of my holiday photos I'll post a few more of those as well.

Just so's you know

After all the panic that ensued when The Crochet Dude disappeared for over a week I thought I'd better let you all know that DH and I are off to beautiful Cornwall (woohoo!) tomorrow morning, long before dawn's even thought about cracking. Wouldn't want to trigger a major search and rescue operation or anything.

We'll be back very late on the 23rd... Yes, I'm afraid that does mean you're all going to have to get along without my
Saturday Sky for two whole Saturdays. I know. I feel your pain. But just think of the lovely time we'll be having.

Oh, and Dude - don't go off like that again without telling all your BlogMoms (male and female) where you're going and when we can expect you home. Now don't fuss - it's only because we love you.

Saturday Sky with Station

Dovercourt station, a ten-minute walk from our house, is the second last stop on the single-track line between Manningtree and Harwich, named the "Mayflower Line" because the captain of the Mayflower, Christopher Jones, was born in Harwich.

There used to be one further stop - the "Train Ferry" at Harwich Harbour, which carried railcars to Zeebrugge, until the service was discontinued in 1987.
