Never usually get the chance to get this near, but there was two of the sleeping on the bank at the fishery so I sneaked up slowly and got various pictures from different angles. Liked this one best.
We finally found somebody to come and clean the gutters, hubby weighed the contents of what was in them, nearly 4 stone in weight, wonder the gutters were not in the garden.
Took the children out for a run around. They stopped and admired the scenery at the bottom of the hill. You can read more about our evening here if you wish too.
Well it is the last week of the school holidays here, Fifi goes back to school on Monday, though she has reassured her wee brother she will fight with him before and after school so he does not miss her too much. So we made the most of the opportunity and did some baking, you can read the post here
Have been bidding my time till we saw curtains for the living room that we liked, saw these on here and thought they were just the right colour with a row of appliquéd poppies approx one third way down. Also they were in the sale so a good price for a lined curtain. They are actually more a scarlet red than they have come out and look great with the red floral wallpaper on the chimney breast. They look great up. Still looking for a dark wood small half moon table for the corner of the living room and replace the electric fire but again I will see the right thing at some point.
Took my camera along on our walk round the fishery not expecting to see anything any different that I have already shared with you before this, but could not help but be in awe at the amazing colour of the sky reflecting in the water. The sun was shining just right on the houses in the village, and I thought it just looked very picture postcard. This is as it came of the camera, nothing at all enhanced. How could I not share it?
There is a small shed at the end of the garden that we are hoping will be a chicken shed come next spring, but if it is going to be it will need a new floor and new roofing felt. Might need to rethink and buy something for them or maybe not bother.
