St Helen's Church Sibbertoft

The girls have gone Kumihimo mad, they cannot stop making the braids and as soon as breakfast was over they were threading up to start another!

Yesterday afternoon we were talking about our ancestors and decided to make a visit to the church in Sibbertoft where some of them are buried. The girls were excited to see the headstones I knew about and even managed to find some I did not know about.  I think it is so important to know where we come from and both girls like hearing the stories about their relatives.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
