Home to roost by Sue Webb ♥

Do you ever get a day which makes you want to just be somewhere quiet!
My job involves being with approx 30 lovely children everyday, boy are they noisy!

I'm lucky I live 5 mins from this lovely spot, which is a haven for wildlife, next to the beautiful Langstone harbour, although it is next to one of he busiest roads in Portsmouth the traffic noise just melts away.
I head here nearly everyday to look at the sea take some photos, think and relax.
How do you relax?


  1. it's so important to find your "quiet". I used to relax by running, but my days are so full, by night's end i just can't even think about slipping on my sneakers. it looks like you found a beautiful place for a little peace and to recharge. xx

  2. I know fitting everything in is a real problem isn't it. I always seem to be chasing my tail, trying to snatch a minute to do the things that I want to do along with the things I have to do! My running shoes are a little bit full of spiders it's so long since I've put them on! I do think about it though, surely that counts doesn't it!
    How do you recharge? ♥

A beautiful day here in Portsmouth. A hint of Spring in the air and the first outdoor spinning of the year.

It felt good to be outside listening to the birds and soaking up the warm sunshine on the deck.

The cats thought so too! Ghetto having a stretch.

Lord Howard(as he is now known!) relaxing! After an hour sitting in the sunshine it was on with my walking boots and off to the sea.

First stop Milton Common, the sky full of Brent Geese chattering as they flew overhead.

The Solent was particularly sparkly today.

The Hard in Old Portsmouth looked higgledy piggledy and colourful.

Then a final treat as I wandered home, a glorious sunset. A day to lift the spirits and make me glad to be alive! Hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend too. Love ♥Sue♥

Back in the zone

Hello So it's been a while but I think it's safe to say that I'm back in the zone! The spinning wheel is out and I'm loving it. Loving the calm rhythmic movement of fibre flowing through my fingers, watching the bobbins fill with gorgeous colour, enjoying the meditative process that spinning is. I've been spinning some beautiful Alpaca and silk that I dyed AGES ago. It's very soft and fluffy but spins up really well wanting to be thin and sophisticated.

I've also been admiring this beauty, I know a rainbow landed on the rug! It's Milk Fibre, it take dye amazingly well, it's incredibly fine and slippery. I tried spinning it 'neat' but it proved impossible so I'm carding it with Merino.

What do you think?

I'm really pleased, I'm a carding newbie but again it's a wonderful process which I find completely absorbing.

I'm planning on carding each rainbow colour separately I'll let you know how it goes.
So how are you all? Hopefully f…
