Week 27 .... The week that was


I've started sorting through my quilting fabrics as I am hoping to join in on a online sew a long for a quilt and want to make some space.  Next, I got a lovely new throw, which was on offer.

Its been a cold week, so much so, that we had the wood burner alight; I made a lemon drizzle cake ...still practicing with my aga.

This week, was also the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of the Somme. I've been watching some very moving and heartbreaking television shows about it.  We really must remember them, and their sacrifices.

Lastly, the weekend got off to a gorgeous start, with lunch at Weathered & Worn.  Then onto the little house, where not only did mum in law come for lunch on Sunday, but there was also a little open day with the RNLI along the sea wall, and a vintage car display. A few "pirates" also came along to make it a fun day out.   Finally home and a chat over the fence with our lovely neighbours, who took these photos of us.  Thanks Maria xxx

The 1st July also marked Mum's 5th year anniversary of her passing. Goodness, it doesn't feel possible. Not a day goes past that I don't miss her like crazy.  I talk about her all the time, and happily that keeps her very much with me.

Ok, friends, I wish you a lovely week.  It seems like the sun may very well show her face this week (fingers crossed)


  1. It looks like you had a really lovely week and a perfect weekend. I can't believe that your mum has been gone for 5 years! xx

  2. Lovely photos of your week.
    The sun was shining here earlier but it seems to have gone into hiding and it's feeling very stormy at the moment (fingers crossed I can get home from work before any rain arrives.
