Hubby had last week off work, we hadn't got any holiday plans as such so decided to have some fun days out instead , but , I still haven't posted about an outing from a few weeks ago , so will do that first and then come back to last weeks later . There will be some cute pics though .
Recently hubby discovered that there was a local military history museum not that far away from us , it's amazing how things can be on your doorstep and yet you still don't know about them .
So , off we went to Thoresby with the intent of looking around The Queens Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum . We also took along a picnic for afterwards , thinking we could spend some time in the ground of the Hall later .
Sadly ,we timed it to go when they had an event on , so would have had to spend £4 each to have our picnic in the grounds. Bit of a pain as entrance to the museum is free , so we sat outside the courtyard for lunch instead. We may go back at another point for a walk round the grounds.
I'm not particularly interested in the military history side , but Hubby and the Boy are , and it made a nice trip out . I did however take quite a few pics of the colours and uniforms , well, fabric and thread have to come into it somewhere , right ?
The details on these pieces were amazing , just wish I could have gotten closer to some of them , but they were quite high up on the wall .
Not done much stitching over the summer holidays , in fact I haven't even picked it up over the last couple of weeks . The holidays have flown by though , I can't believe the kids go back to school in a week and a half . I will be back soon with more photos of our outings.
Thanks for dropping by ,
A Finish and Part of a House
