Dancing and Digging

Well hi there!
What a glorious day Saturday was, dancing was frankly hilarious, first time out this year and many, many hairy moments and hot.......... hot.
Winchester was looking beautiful.

This is me taking a break for a spot of lunch in the shade,
i think you'll agree I really rock that tights and flip flop look!
And yeah that is my costume.

No more photos cos it's difficult to dance and take pictures LOL!
There are videos but the're not ready for public consumption just yet.
So after the dancing came the digging.
down on the allotment the peasants are very busy.

Covering the strawberries, or watering Mum.......not sure.

Look at these stunning California poppies, what a wonderful colour they are, we shall be collecting the seeds from these for sure.

Tomatoes, now that's exciting because last year we were way to late and only got a tiny crop.

Mum's pigeon proof fence!!!!
We'll see, I don't think they are quite that stupid.

Early sugar snaps.

Men at work.

First pickings of the strawberries.

Desperate measures to protect the currants, not pretty but hopefully effective. I'm really pleased with how the currants are coming on and can't wait to harvest a bumper crop.

Nothing nicer than spending the evening in the warm,
 hands in the soil........growing.
Hope your gardens are growing beautifully.

Busy week at school, all Jubilee fever and flag waving!
See you soon.


  1. Great to see a normal working allotment and not a styled 'country living' one that's all pretty but not effective - everyone needs a plastic bag wigwam!!

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♥

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♥
