Sunsets and marmalade!

This weekend we managed to get out and about. 
By bike and on foot, enjoying the exhilarating weather.
Camera in hand of course!

Friday took us to Southsea, a lovely walk from our house.

A delicious cuppa at the Coffee Cup along the prom.

Watching the traffic.
Then down to business.

Catching that setting sun.
Our beach has some beautiful grasses and plants growing on it,
throwing myself on the stones I watched the sun set over the Isle of Wight.

Boy it was cold, but stunning!

South Parade pier, looking almost beautiful LOL
A shrine to seventies architecture NOT the most attractive building in the world.

Sunday saw us doing a spot of bird photography,
here we are all set up, waiting
and waiting and waiting.

Bit tricky doing the washing up around the tripod.

Quite like this practise shot of fennel seed heads.
Then how much excitment
A bird!
A Blue Tit
Oh, not a great shot.

Starlings on the flats behind our house.

That was it.
How frustrating.
However, the advantage of setting up in the kitchen is that you pootle around making deliciousness.

Grapefruit marmalade

Not a huge batch I admit but absolutely gorgeous.
And finally a spin along the seafront,
Blimey it was windy

But worth it, it's always worth it, 
to be outside spinning along on my bike enjoying the fantastic views!
Hope you had a lovely weekend too.

  2. you live in a lovely place - wish i could walk by the sea...

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

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♥

Five Photo Friday

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♥
