Week 26 ... The week that was


Without a doubt, week 26 was monumental.  So lets see what else happened other than the EU vote.  Maria came over which the bears loved, they also got to talk to her over the fence. We had dinner out at Prezzo's and although I'm not really someone who has a lot of alcohol, I probably have a glass of wine every few weeks, and the odd Pimms or Aperol spritz, I ordered a G&T, but it was made with Gin, Apple juice, and Elderflower and a sprig of Rosemary.  Goodness, it was so lovely that I'm going to try it at home, especially as I'm slightly obsessed with Elderflower water at the moment.

Also, my sale goodies from Emma Bridgewater turned up. We bought the bears a football, which lasted all of a few minutes, before teeth got to it. We also took them to the park and had a fabulous time, even met another Lakie, and they were off lead for ages. Well, until they started following another dog and his owner and not listening to coming back when called lol.  Simon  fixed the new lights up outside, and we visited some garden centres, so I've started planting my tubs.

But of course the biggest news of the week was the election.  Simon stayed up all night with the bears, not that they were interested in keeping him company.  The news and outcome that has followed, has kept Simon gripped ever since.

Today is the first day of Wimbledon and although its dry so far, its certainly very grey, and I believe today is meant to be the best day of the week! Come on summer, where are you?

Have a lovely week all xxx


  1. Certainly a busy & eventful week.
    Love all the photos.
    I do wish the papers would stop all the 'doom & gloom' - the country voted and now we all need to pull together to make things work. It will be interesting to see how the country moves forward.

  2. Love those dishes, especially the red ones. It sounds like a good week, even if marred with a jarring development. Wishing you clear skies this Monday a.m.

  3. At least you had lots of good bits round about 'that'election! Xx

  4. Sorry, had to laugh about the football..that's a new variation on "kicking it over the fence the day you get it and never seeing it again"

    Wishing you a good week

  5. I had to laugh at myself because I scrolled back up to find the football . . . I was looking for an American football! LOL Hope you have a great week!

  6. I have seen that plate with hearts on another person's blog - I really like the heart bowls. How about we trade some weather moments, we will give you our intense hot sunshine & you give us some glorious rain.

    1. oh yes please ... actually, if we could maybe merge the two weathers, it might be ok xx
