Hi! A belated happy Sunday Sevens!
Fancy having this in your back garden! A 253ft chimney, known as Wainhouse Tower. Those of you who watched Happy Valley will have seen it or maybe not noticed it. Despite it’s prominence it’s quite hard to get a decent photo of the tower – I’ve been trying for ages – but last week I went to a job nearby just as it was getting dark.
It’s open to the public on bank holidays and other selected dates and those who dare climb the 403 steps will be rewarded with an amazing view over Happy Valley!
Quite a bit of rain last week. H and I went out for a run/jog but it was a definite run past this puddle before any cars came and splashed us!
I won the first prize in the Easter raffle at the golf club. A much better prize than the wine I didn’t win last week! Or was it the week before!?
Shopping for a new suitcase – H went to Austria with the school on Saturday. I might need a big one too for my golf trip! Only 16 sleeps!!
On Saturday I had 2 forgiven pieces of post. Some goodies from Del and a quilting pattern from Kate. This cheered me up as I was gutted that I couldn’t see H off on his trip as I was working. Thankyou ladies! 😔 (the feature pic is my sewing box after it’s had a tidy up and a home found for my new quilting ruler. It’s perfect for sewing up the splendid sampler blocks).
Curry night out with some work buddies.
Whilst shuffling the vehicles round at the start of my shift I spotted the most amazing sunrise. It didn’t come out too well and I wasn’t able to persevere for a better one, sorry.
The cafe featured in Happy Valley is in Elland which is in ‘my patch’. When they showed it they had the real staff serving on which i thought was brill’. And best of all it opens on Sunday mornings when every where is closed!
I tried to cut out a pattern whilst parked up in Elland. It was a bit tricky and I soon got a call so had to abandon that idea!

Cheerio for now!
