Mask Making and The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

I thought I'd do a very quick update on the rest of my week as I seem to have done loads!
On Wednesday Evie and Hermione went to a mask making class at Cannon Hall, the theme was 'Masked Ball' and the class was held by local textile artist Diane Bates. 
Diane is a lovely lady and all the children really enjoyed themselves making masks and making lots of mess, infact I think all the Mums and Dads did too...I know I did!!
Unfortunately I can't find a website for Diane Bates so the link I've put up just gives a brief background of her life and work, if you're nterested in seeing some of her work you'll find loads of pictures on Google Images.

Then Wednesday evening it was cinema and pizza for us, We went to see 'Step up 3D' The new Shrek film was our first choice but it wasn't showing anywhere local, anyways Step Up 3D was actually pretty good ( I once watched 'Step Up 2-The streets' when We had a Sky Movies trial and really really enjoyed it much to my elder daughters amusement).
Thursday saw Me,Scott and Evie visit Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which is about 10 minutes drive from where We live and in the 6 years we've lived here we've never once visited it.
We had the disabled lady I look after with us so We couldn't walk the entire 2km walk around the park but We had a good look around all the bits that had disabled access and decided that its well worth another visit in the near future.

Thank you again to everyone who took part in my giveaway. Taz and Bethany have both been in touch and their parcels will be in the post on Monday.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Love! Thank you from the bottom of my dark heart. (ha-ha) It was so nice to see you stop by and your words of love and support mean so much to me. I probably sounded nicer in my post than I really feel. I got such conflicting feeling going on. You know the old Angel and Devil on opposite should thing. Anyway your words were a blessing and are cherished still.

You're pics are great. The kids are adorable. How I would love to go to England and see the beautiful countryside, museums and old architecture.

Have a wonderful, loving weekend. Biggest of HUGS to you....Tracy :)

Oh lush, mask making, my daughters words lol!
Great minds hun, I didn't take part in the envelope project but was only thinking this morning how great it would be to do something like that, perhaps we should put our heads together.
