Beautiful day on the beach DH and I plus little foster daughter. Just playing in the sand and exploring textures and sights and sounds. Luckily we live only 20 minutes by car from a gorgeous unspoilt and nearly deserted beach and as we approach summer it is ideal for day trips. Took a packed lunch and her bucket and spade - who needs anything else? Very happy little person cried a little when it was time to go - and that was me! :) Fostering is very easy when there is no family contact! Whne your own children are all at school! and when the foster child is as pleasant as this one is. Really couldn't ask for anything more today.
Added bonus was a quick trip to the quilting shop on the way back from the beach :) did a quick reccie to see if there was anything new and there are some lovely bag kits but a bit pricey - especially when I have enough fabric in my stash to make a shop full of bags already. Bought a 'Country Threads' and a spool of varigated quilting thred - well I couldn't come home empty handed.
