Clarity Belfast

Good afternoon all, and thanks for popping in.

I do hope that your weekend is going well, yesterday it was Clarity Belfast and what a wonderful day it was. I do love coming over here and catching up with the girls...

I am so lucky that I have such lovely friends, Sharon, Linda, Angela, Norma and Sandra really know how to spoil us.

Look at the ladies all hard at work, well I do crack the whip!!!!

Linda and Angela are such fun....

We started our day with a warm up card

And then moved on to our main project , a 3d picture frame,

Look at the wonderful pieces of art

Then it was a nice quick and easy card to finish off our day

We did have the most yummy malteser cheesecake and strawberry pavlova too....well it wouldn't be a Clarity workshop without afternoon tea....thanks ladies.

And then out for a meal, perfect way to finish off the day

I must admit I slept like a log.

Michael, second on the right, is our official tour guide...and he provides us with a route map and ares of interest to visit. Thanks Michael, you are a star...

So today we have travelled south and we are now hooked up in our campsite for tonight, we stopped off at Castle Ward . What a beautiful place, the house is amazing and full of history...

Honestly if you get chance to visit, you really should, the gardens are wonderful too.

Some of the scenes from Game of Thrones have been filmed there

Look at the view

Oh I must just tell you on our journey through the Mourne mountains today we saw a man walking his Reindeer....oh yes he had two beautiful large Reindeer on leads and was walking them down the grass verge,,,,I thought I was seeing things....

Tomorrow we are heading a little further south , and then back home on Tuesday.

Adam has just phoned to say that Eric is feeling much better so that is good news.

We have baked potoatoes cooking in the oven, so I am just off for a shower , take care all and pop back soon.

Much love and hugs
