Week 45

These weeks are rushing by, aren't they?, but let me give you the highlights from week 45
The weather has been amazing, perfect Autumn days, which the bears have just loved.  I did my last walk of Tommy, oh he's such a sweet dog.  I made my Christmas cake, which was the first time in the Aga this year.  It took 14 hours in the simmering oven, but oh my goodness, it smells amazing.

We then took ourselves off to the Little House for a long weekend.  We've been putting summer to bed, so to speak there and we've enjoyed lots of lovely evenings by the fire.  I managed to get hold of some poppies that I believe are meant to go on zips. Instead I put them on the bears leads and quite a few people have commented on them.

One big plus was that while putting away my summer bits, I found a Christmas cake that I made last year, so I've started re-feeding it with brandy and I'm looking forward to eating it this year.

The weather has certainly broken now, and we've had quite a bit of rain, and some very cold walks along the sea wall.

I hope you have an enjoyable week, I've got some blog reading to catch up with, so that's a big plus for me. xx


  1. Lovely photos -I love the one of your doggie checking up on you through the window xx

  2. It looks and sounds like you had a lovely week. I bet that cake will taste amazing! xx

  3. Sounds like a super week Sandra. The Autumn colours have finally arrived here but with the wind & rain most of the leaves are now on the floor.
    What a fabulous find - now you have two yummy cakes for the festive season.

  4. Oh if only there wasn't such a big pond between us I would just happen to drop by for a slice of that newly fed Christmas cake - I believe it takes at least a year for all the flavours to blend (oh yum) - I like that the Bears are wearing their poppies.

  5. I absolutely love the idea of rediscovering a Christmas Cake! That sounds like just the kind of thing the big man in red might do himself.

  6. Lovely snaps & review of your week! Sounds like you have gotten the hang of the Aga these past several months.
