Hope you all made most of the lovely weather starting in May and then the Spring Bank Holiday. Above is a picture I couldn’t resist taking of Bridlington’s sandy beach in May, full of visitors enjoying themselves.
In April we had a visitor, Elena Lisina, the Russian doll artist, who stayed with us for a few days, and was also visiting other friends in England.
We had a short weekend break in May and went over to Douai in France for a wedding, which lasted all day and night, ending up with a game of croquet before breakfast!
A day out in July took us to see Vina Cooke’s Museum of Dolls & Bygone Childhood. A Museum dedicated for doll lovers, truly wonderful!
