You know I LOVE my bike.
I do love it so much.
Here it is looking very fine.

Well yesterday it was stolen!
We were at my mum and dad's house enjoying a pre holiday dinner when there was a knock on the door.
One of their neighbours saw a group of yuffs bolt crop the lock from my bike and ride off on it.
OMG how sad was I, my heart sank.
I got straight on the phone to the police.
Lovely Man got straight on his bike ( which they hadn't had time to steal) and headed off in hot pursuit.
The fiendish felon had headed into the back streets of Portsea, not a place to wander around even if you're a local.
fifteen minutes later he returned triumphant

Chased the yob down he did........he's fast is Lovely Man.

Well maybe not That Fast!
Shouted at him and scared him half to death I think ( Lovely Man can look very menacing!)
until he gave up the chase and surrendered his booty.
Impressed the local bobby with his tenacious sleuthing too.
I can't tell you how happy I was to see my bike come back to me.
I love my bike.
No damage really, apparently felons aren't partial to crochet bunting or handlebar grips. They don't use panniers either cos all that is missing, annoying but replaceable.
I love my bike, d'you know that!
And now I can pack it into the car for it's holiday adventures in Suffolk.
Such relief.
Am off to but a new lock now even huger than the one that was on there.
Then it's holiday for me.
So I'll say goodbye for a couple of weeks.
I'll be back with many adventures to tell.
Lots of love

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♥

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 yo
