Holiday fun........part 5

Did you have a good Bank Holiday weekend? 
Last week of the holidays for me, I must admit the thought of going back to work does not fill me with unbridled joy! I do love being at home.
I like exploring new places too.
Southwold turned out to be one of our favourite places on our holiday.
Lovely little town with a lighthouse right in the middle of it, I mean in the back gardens!


Southwold also boasts a rather gorgeous tea room
Tilly's tearoom we had delicious teacakes and coffee before we headed off for one of the most gorgeous beaches ever.

Now if I tell you about this beach you
to keep it secret because too many people would spoil it!
How stunning is this and that sand was powder soft.

Looking back you can just make out Southwold pier and 
somewhere in that water was a seal.......... watching.

Covehithe is a secret gem on the Suffolk coast constantly changing thanks to erosion.

We came across many tree stumps on the beach.

And spent a wonderful few hours walking along the waterline picking up treasure.

The beach passes a nature reserve with it's lake just feet from the sea.
Teeming with birds and wildlife.

So peaceful

We walked until the sun was setting, letting the atmosphere soak into our souls.

I'd go back in a heart beat.

And that's how we felt alot of the time on this holiday.
Relaxed, peaceful, restored.
Suffolk we'll be back.


  1. Hi Sue , just been catching up with your holiday photos....gorgeous.
    I've never been to Suffolk , except Lowestoft when the boys were babies. Would love to explore further.
    Your sunrise pictures are my favourite...they make that sculpture look amazing.

  3. Thank you Jacquie, it was so worth the early start to see the sun on that sculpture!

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♥

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…
