Wonderful Weekend

 Oh what a glorious weekend we had here in the South of England.
I even put my shorts on for a little while!
What did you all get up to?
What did I get up to?
Well, as the evening get longer we've been popping out to catch the sunset.
This shot is taken from Hayling Island looking across Langstone Harbour towards Portsmouth.
Beautiful isn't it.

Saturday we headed to Petworth House to enjoy the magnificent grounds.
Still some gorgeous daffodils in bloom.

The most amazing trees.


Some of them had holes in the trunks that we stood in!

Petworth is famed for it's deer and they didn't disappoint, well they did a bit as they seemed very cunning, whenever a camera came out they didn't run away they just turned their backs!

The scenery was stunning.

Lots of photo opportunities 

Oh and one staring competition.

It was a wonderful day time to spend together relaxing.
Next time we're going to go in the house too.

Sunday we spent in the garden pottering, one of my favourite ways to spend the day.
These lovely cherry blossoms are in my next door neighbours garden, pretty aren't they.

Howard chilled out too!
He's good at that.

Time for some hooky fun to of course, just a few coasters for our new coffee table and some little motifs for a bit of a secret project I'm toying with.

And finally a little gift for one of my bestest friends in the whole world.
Cute and quick to make, it only took a couple of hours!
I found the free pattern here

Anyway today saw us all back in our woolies, brrrr chilly.
How was your weekend, did you get up to anything crafty, or go out adventuring? 
Do tell I'd love to hear.
Next time I'm talking spinning.
See you soon!

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.

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.

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 …
