The weekend that was…

hard work , well at least for me. Saturday weather wise was horrible with the cold drizzle rain that even if you just popped outside to the dustbin you seem to get very wet and as I’ve said it was very chilly. So we stayed indoors but not just to ‘play’ like being here on the PC or reading a book, watching a film on TV oh no it was decorating for us. We started working on our spare bedroom a few weeks ago it was just a case of change all the furniture…not difficult, go to the store view different ideas, place an order, pay and then wait delivery.

Ok that part of it was easy but then the old furniture all had to be emptied and clothing etc had to be kept somewhere until the new furniture was in place again that was easy. But then came the bit about the room being decorated and that’s where this story really struggled…we both hate and that should be typed with a capital ‘H’ painting etc. Anyway we were forced into it at the weekend because the new furniture arrived Friday and was taking up space in the dining room..

So there you have it Saturday and part of Sunday was spent with a paint brush in my hand and yes I complained and moaned with every stroke of the brush..but here we are Monday morning the sun is shinning and the paint work looks good. So now all we have to do is to start getting things back into place finish off a top coat of paint on the door frame and all will be done…can’t really understand why I made so much fuss!!

The photo of the Lilac bush is taken in my garden and at this time of year looks so pretty, smells beautiful and brings happy memories for me of my childhood when I lived with my grandparents in Wales where they had two magnificent Lilac trees in their garden.

See you soon and whatever you’re up to stay safe..


The Big Cat Sanctuary…


Before I tell you about Tuesday here’s a photo of my clump of Alliums now in full bloom…these lovely plants are all supposed to be the same height and growing nice and upright!!…as you can see they have decided to do there own thing and are anything but the same height and forming the nice ‘clump’ I had planned…

Anyway back to Tuesday of this week when I was very pleased to be able to join with 5 friends from a Photography forum I belong to, to pay a visit to The Big Cat Sanctuary in Kent.

It was a wonderful opportunity for us to take close up photo’s of these lovely large wild cats and of course we were again so lucky to have a beautiful fine sunny day. I will be adding another page to my photo album with lots of the photo’s I took that day but in the meantime here a a few to keep you going until I sift through the 400 odd photo’s I took and decide which ones to put in the photo album.


A quick post…

to say ‘hello’ and show you a few photo’s. We had a really busy weekend with so much to do and although we seemed to be on the go all the time I’m not sure that at the end of the weekend how much we have actually accomplished..

Anyway I did manage to have the camera with me most of the time and on Friday we went to visit our friends who have moved to Suffolk to live. On the Saturday we went out for lunch to Hall Farm Shop restaurant where we enjoyed a superb meal of lovely fresh produce including finishing the meal with home made delicious ice cream…anyway at the back of the car park was this lovely church which is in the village of Mary St Stratford and if you would like to know the history check out the link Stratford St Mary Church

Also as it’s a working farm they have a lot of animals around and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this little family…I just love how they all group together for their afternoon sleep…

So I think we can say that Spring really has arrived at last and here’s some photo’s to prove it..

Thats all this time round but I also wanted to let you know that I’m working (slowly!!) on a new web page and I will eventually transfer the blog to my site but I will of course let you know and give you the link!

In the meantime many thanks for your visit and for leaving me your comments which I appreciate and enjoy reading..

Stay safe..
