15 June 2015


Well it was wet and miserable all day here. Stopped raining from time to time but that didn't make it a bad day because I had FUN, FUN, FUN.

Crazy Mom Tats had been working in London most of last week and she caught a train to Leamington Spa on Saturday where I picked her up and took her to visit Anne Hathaway's Cottage. We were so lucky as a friend who's a guide there was on duty and we got a splendid tour of the house. After that it was time to have lunch so where else would you go except the nearest pub - The Bell (Shottery). 

We then went back to Chez Old Git's and had a cup of tea before heading back to Leamington and Sandra's train. 

This lass is a great friend and it's always good to see her. I stayed with her in Atlanta last year (and the year before or thereabouts). We talked our little socks off while we were together and I'm blogging this today because we covered Tat Land too in our natterings!!!  This blog is titled 'Tatting and not a lot else' so what do you expect but something a little different from time to time!!!!

So, here are some pictures of the day (all taken at Anne Hathaway's Cottage) but there'll be more tomorrow!!!

It's fun when other bloggers turn up in different windows! - these are lovely pictures, and I'm glad you both had a great time together.

That is the world famous Anne Hathaway's Cottage in the background, Madtatter80. Had to point that out in case you thought it was my house!!!!

It is strange seeing Sandra, whom I have met and stayed with in the USA stood infront of one of the most familar places from my home town.

Jane, you have some of the most interesting visitors! And, from such a long way away!
I'm glad Crazy Mom resisted smothering you with a pillow (her blog intro seems to say she is a closet smotherer)!

What fun! I hope to do some visiting in a year or so. I'd love to meet more of my tatting friends in person!
