I'm back!

And yes, 
I did need my waterproofs!
So where did we end up, 
well it was very exciting travelling without knowing your destination.
We ended up here in the lovely village of 
Chideock
in 
Dorset!
A place of little thatched cottages.
So pretty.
Let me tell you it was a perfect birthday surprise.
Would you like to see what we got up to.

Saturday morning the view from our bedroom,
 a glimpse of sunshine. 
Quick boots on lets get going.


Quick stroll downhill to Seatown


Fabulous clouds


Lets hike to the top of Golden cap, off we go, bit muddy!


Lovely scenery


We made a new friend, he's so cute, I love his curly coat.


It's very, very high.
This is looking east.


And west


That's us!


Right then down the other side, 
come on Sue keep up.


Tony showing me the way!?!


Loads of toadstools


We think these are called Scarlet Hood


And these might be Verdigris toadstool 


So onward and downward, very gingerly in places let me tell you, 
some of those landslides are very recent, the path was VERY close to the edge!


Down to Charmouth, not a dinosaur in sight, no fish and chips either!
cafe closed in the winter.
Note to self ,take sarnies!
Quick change of plan then.
Bus ride back to Chideock then on to Lyme Regis by car.
 Lovely little town some fantastic buildings




Interesting aren't they and all three of these were on the promenade!


Very dramatic sunset, 
a glimpse of things to come!

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥

But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.
