Here I am chatting with a blog friend I met online many years ago and we kind of hit it off and are friends via facebook/email too and I got the chance to meet her while we stayed in Bromsgrove....her blog was lucyinthesky ☺☺
Smile for the blurry shot lol
we left Bromsgrove and then drove to Skipton to checkout yarndale.....creative festival celebrating all things woolly and wonderful
and I got to meet Lucy from attic24.typepad.com she is quite famous and does beautiful crochet
and lots of knitted socks hung up!!
and I got to meet the famous Christine of winwickmum the sock lady with a great book check it out winwickmum.blogspot.com.au/p/super-socks-book here
and I took a few snaps of yarn bombing
cute sheep knitting lol
and think these were attic24 lucy's mandalas.....check her blog for pattern
On we drove to Blackpool which even Paul had never been (he is an ex UK dude) and found this cute B&B and the lady was very apologetic that we had the top floor and poor Paul was having to carry the cases lol but what a lovely room for the night
and the neat en-suite
and yes......look at those stairs and another lot down underneath
and sweet Lucy of lucyinthesky gave me these .....flying scotsman ale, tea and stitch-markers.....we have since drunk the ale and was delish Lucy.....also sharing the tea here at home now.....and the little stitch-marker which had a small silver snail on it lives on my handbag....☺☺ xoxo
Now in Blackpool they have this Illuminations every year and is apparently world famous illuminations.visitblackpool plenty of info here.....
and this was the tardis all lit up and daleks......
The street was bright with lights
the weather not so bright lol
and dogs are allowed on the trams and a lovely couple gave us their tickets so had use for the next 24hrs....neat
going out on the piers they have it is like being in los vegas without the gambling.....busy busy and lots of music and lights

we still had fun though lol

and a massive lit up rollercoaster
walking back to our B&B
Next morning we took another visit into the town via bus and ended up doing a HUGE walk lol
but there is the rollercoaster in the rain....

looking back as we decided to head back to get our car.......the park was actually about to open even though the weather was FULL ON
Now can you see The Tardi and Daleks?
Off we drove, negotiating roadworks
