Hello to you.
How are you all?
It's been one of those weeks when nothing happens for days, then it all happens at once.
I've had a cold the past few days that seems to have knocked me a bit...but I seem to be getting better now. Slowly.
I've been hooking away at yet another blanket. My colourings are inspired by Cath Kidston.
I spent last weekend in a field in Shrewsbury, England, at a music and comedy festival. It was good fun, with a sleeping bag and quilt we had a very warm nest to sleep in after a fun night listening to music and eating Mexican food.
The weather here has been very changeable.
A rainy day to start the week. It does make the fennel and cobwebs look beautiful.
The mountain ash (rowan) tree is laden with bright red berries. The birds seem to love them.
These photos are from today when we've had temperatures in the 20s.
I'm not the best of cooks but even I can manage a crumble! I used rhubarb and elderberries from my September harvest, I always enjoy cooking more when it's my own home-grown produce.
Yesterday was so sunny we all decided to go out for some fresh air. We are very lucky to live not too far away from such lovely walks.
Can you see me waving in the shadow? The last photo shows my brother, my daughter and my brother's girlfriend who are visiting us at the moment from down south.
My brother and I are very close and I love having him to stay - makes me feel like a happy child again, sharing memories and laughing at in-jokes together.
My partner broke the lid to this coffee pot! Initially I was not amused, but don't you think it makes a nice vase?
I couldn't bear to throw it out.
I will finish on my car boot sale bargains bought today. Maybe not to everyone's taste but I love my deer and picture.
"Tina" by J H Lynch my very beautiful lady £30...I know I know hardly a bargain but I looked her up tonight on eBay and she's going for £80-odd.
Little deer part of a box for a £1 which I filled with all sorts of vintage china, books and CDs.
Thank you very much for the well wishes and comments as always.
Hope you've had a lovely weekend, whatever you've been up to.
