We arrived home in the early hours of Saturday morning. We travelled back through the night to avoid the traffic. We have had a good holiday and have enjoyed relaxing and being away from work. Unfortunately the British weather let us down and we had rain nearly every day.

It was a little sad being in Cornwall this year. I have so many happy memories of family holidays spent there with my parents and this year may have been the last time I will visit. As I have mentioned in earlier posts we are in the process of applying for our Australian visas and next year we are hoping to move there.

Amy got to see the Dr Who exhibition she was so looking forward to, this is her with one of the many 'monsters' on display.

We did have a few days of good weather there and we managed to get on the beach a few times. Amy was able to practice her surfing skills ready for her new life in Australia.

Thank you to everyone that has continued to visit my blog whilst I have been away and dropped there entrecard and for all the comments left. I am going away again on Wednesday, this time for 5 days. We are going to a family wedding and taking the opportunity to have a few days away. After that things will be back to normal and I will be catching up on dropping and commenting on all your lovely blogs!

Hi LizzyT,
I came across your blog while looking for knitting blogs. I absolutely love your posts and all of your craft work/pieces. Like yourself, I am a knitter too. I am trying to begin knitting again as I take lengthy breaks while I'm attending grad school. My knitted pieces usually find their way to friends and family for gifts and holidays, but I'm hoping to have time to fully concentrate on my love for knitting and produce many pieces.

Your process of moving to Australia is interesting and must be so exciting for you and your family. I hope everything works out for you!

Please feel free to like my name to see my blog. It is just about family, current events, the joys of daily life. I'm going to follow those instructions on how to add a third column - thanks!

Fellow Blogger,

Looks like a lovely holiday! I would love to see the Dr Who exhibit some day...that statue that your daughter is standing by is from one of my all time favorite Sci-Fi episodes (ANY series) called "Blink".
