Once back in London Red and I parted ways and he started his tour and I made my way to my mum and her partner's house in Essex.
My focus here was to spend quality time with my mum and other than a couple of trips to surrounding shopping areas, we mainly stayed in, drank cups of tea and chatted.
The first morning I was here it had been raining over night and I was able to take some photos in their garden......rain drops and all.
Mums hydrangeas were looking incredible in full bloom, the blossoms looking like little cups full of water droplets.
While here I also had time to work on a couple of my stitcheries for Bric-a-Brac.
