Holiday Fun............part 3

So day 3 was meant to be a gentle ride through the countryside.
Ha ha ha ha! 
Foolish folk, what did it do yesterday.....yeh rain, quite alot, there were always going to be puddles weren't there!
Off road oh yes hardcore stuff!


Also rather unexpected, huge farm machinery dodging, we had to dive into the nearest bush cos we don't even think he saw us!!!!!


Out in the fields and into the hot sunshine we spent ages enjoying these gorgeous wild flowers.


There's nothing prettier than Mother Natures planting!


Not so pretty.


A well earned rest and refuelling stop, check out the healthy snack!


So a quiet day and an evening spent cleaning Suffolk sand off our bike chains.
Early night.
Early morning.
Thanks to those pesky mozzies, OMG the itching it just went on and on, by 4 o'clock I'd given up with sleep.
Since we were awake we got out and about along Aldeburgh beach to watch the sunrise.
What a wonderful way to start the day, there are no words that can describe how beautiful it was.
Enjoy the photos taken at Maggie Hambling's gorgeous sculpture.



A stroll back along the beach and home for breakfast.
And it was still only 7.30am!

Later we walked up the coast to Thorpness, but I'll tell you all about that tomorrow.
Love

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…

Sunday

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♥


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♥
