Can I go outside now?

Finally the weather has broken and it's beginning to feel like 
Do you feel that strong urge to get outside?
I do and when I'm stuck in work all day I kind of get twitchy and slightly crazy.
But walking here by the sea restores my sanity.

This was Wednesday

A fog hung over the common giving everything a haze.

The boats in the harbour were hidden.
But it was lovely.
And then as I headed for home along the path I found the Blackthorn all in bloom.

Just wonderful delicate blossoms

dancing in the hazy sunlight

they are so pretty and full of detail, I love the little stamens!

It was a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of the day.
I always feel restored after a mooch across the common!
Anyway important matters are in hand this weekend.
A Birthday party!
For my Lovely Man
On the menu

And mmmmmmm

All taken from here, such a good book,
 full of delicious recipes and Delia's fail safe instructions.
I've just rediscovered this book after my mum found this one in a charity shop (smells of mothballs, but hey!)
My first copy left with the first Mr Webb if you catch my drift!!!
Anyway moving on, it's a great book and I'm glad to have it back in my collection!

So busy, busy, will be whizzing around town on my bike collecting ingredients this afternoon. 
If you're in Portsmouth look out I'll be going very fast!!
Have a great weekend  I'll be back with some hooky news and birthday pictures very soon.

    Don't know why you've had trouble commenting, it's the mystery of the blogosphere, but it's very annoying, so thanks for persevering! Still trying to find the time to finish my boat pattern, nearly there now though! ♥

    hope the birthday celebrations went well :)

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!

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.

 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♥
