Sunday Sevens -22nd November

Sunday’s here again, so time for another #sundaysevens. Sunday sevens was devised by Nat at Thread and Bobbins for bloggers to share photos of their personal week. I enjoyed reading other’s Sunday Sevens so much, I’ve been joining in for a while now.

  1. Having finally bought the right paint last weekend, Lovely Husband painted the guest bedroom.

2. While LH painted, I tidied our junk room – forgot to take a before, but tidying up took all day Sunday.

3. More tidying up in the week – this time out in the garden. The passion flowers missed a trim months ago, because the mistle thrushes make their nests behind them.


4. A rare sight – Lovely Husband with a needle and thread – mending the curtain from our ensuite.


5. On Friday I went to Cowslips Workshops’ craft fair with my crafty chums. Lots of lovely enticing christmasy stalls. Blacker Yarns were also there with the irresistible bargain bin – which not just enticed me to buy wool, but to cast on another project. Oh well, it is wovember.


6. On the way home we saw the most beautiful rainbow.



7. And, of course, the week isn’t complete without a picture of HRH -who’s finally off the antibiotics 🙂 Fingers crossed he can stay off.


Hope you’ve had a great week too.

  1. Well done to Mr. Hicks. I see he loves a wallow – I think it’s a golden retriever thing isn’t it? I know our goldie used to plonk herself down in any bit of water she could find – the muddier the better – and often put her head under too although, bizarrely, she didn’t like swimming.

    1. You really do need to get your head in the right space, don’t you? There’s loads for us still to do. Was going to paint that wardrobe this weekend, but just can’t get my enthusiasm up to do it.


  2. Are you using chalk paint for the wardrobe? No sanding required so not too bad a job. Mr H-L can wield many a fearful looking tool, but a sewing needle isn’t one of them! How lovely to have birds nesting in your Passion flowers so close to the house. Did you see them fledge? Bet hosing Mr Hicks down is a bit more of a job than popping our Yorkies in the kitchen sink…..

    1. Yes, chalk paint – so goodness know why I don’t just get on with it. LH only resorted to the needle and thread, because he’s fed up with moaning about the curtains and me saying I’m not going to waste time mending them, because I’m going to make a new pair. Unfortunately didn’t see them fledge – we must have been away, because they’re right outside the kitchen window. But maybe a good thing as Hicks sits in the sun there and might have picked them up if any had ended up on the ground. Fortunately the people who live before us fitted a hot tap outside, so Hicks at least has a luxury shower 🙂

  3. Gosh a lovely Mister who knows how to use a sewing needle. Jackpot!! Lovely that HRH is off the meds and doing okay, long may he last! The yarn you bought looks beautifully soft – every time I see posts of you Ukians going off to craft fairs I want to follow – we don’t have any good ones hereabouts!

  4. A busy week, Bekki. Glad you got on so well with the decorating, tidying and gardening and managed a great outing to the craft fair as well. You do seem to get plenty of those where you are. Another knitting project to be fitted in! I’m sure you’ll take it all in your stride. And how great to see your LH doing so well with his needlework. As for Mr. Hicks… it’s good to hear he’s doing so well and enjoying a nice outdoor bath.

      1. I think you’d better start setting your alarm clock a couple of hours earlier each morning. I can just imagine you knitting at 4am! A few cups of tea or coffee will help. 🙂
        Anyway, I’ll look forward to seeing the finished product. It looked really lovely. 🙂

      2. I used to write regularly at 4am – but don’t think I’ll go there with knitting – famous last words? Think it’s coming on ok, but it’s really curling over as I knit – never had any knitting so dreadfully behaved – so hard to tell what the fair isle’s looking like.

      3. Oh dear. I’m looking forward to an update on this badly behaved knitting. I’ll be checking posts later on this week. I have to sort out my writing schedule this week and get into a fixed routine. I’ve managed to keep off WP for most of the day. But I’ll set aside some regular time for that too, eventually.

      4. You seem to have your routines all sorted out nicely, and you have so many projects to fit into your day. I’m trying mornings for my writing at the moment. I particularly dislike dark winter evenings and constant electric lights. Roll on spring. 🙂

      5. I’ve had writing routines for all sorts of times of day – depending where I’ve been at in my life. Unfortunately right now there is only a loose routine and certain activities keep encroaching on each other’s time. All I really need though is an extra 24hrs in every day 😉

  5. Aaaw Mr Hicks looks very relaxed in that puddle/stream – glad to hear he’s on the mend! I am extremely impressed with your LH; painting and sewing in one week! It’s nice to see that you’ve managed to get a bit of sorting done too, your garden looks very pretty 🙂

  6. Hi Bekki, good for you two for getting those big items off your to do list! Painting and organizing do take a certain mind-set, don’t they? And it has to combine with time + energy! Lovely about the bird nests. And what a beautiful rainbow! Mr Hicks sure looks like he’s enjoying his dip in the water. :-). Take good care in the week to come.

    1. You’re right, the weekends go so fast, putting in a big job in just throws off all the other things you need to do. It was really magical having the mistle thrushes there to and froing with worms for their babies – I do hope they come again next year. The rainbow was complete and so vivid – you’ve never seen four grown women getting so excited over a rainbow 🙂 Hope you have a fab week too xx

  7. HRH sure is getting better, enjoying the water and outside again. Lovely to see that.
    Well done on all the work around the house, you all have been pretty busy. Its looking good already, and I love the garden, it is really a place to enjoy and sit outside on a pleasant day.
    Have a great week and take care. 🙂
