Time again for Sunday Sevens, devised by the wonderful Nat at Thread and Bobbins for bloggers to share photos of their personal week.
- Although I celebrated Mothers Day on Saturday with Lovely Littlest, I still had presents to open last Sunday, sent from the Neatherlands by Lovely Eldest and given to me in person by Mr Hicks.
2. Mr Hicks also took me for a lovely Mothers Day walk in Bellever Forest. We took a path we had never taken before and found the remains of an ancient building.
3. On the way back we found some very friendly ponies on the path
4. This year the Met Office have started naming storms they think may cause damage. So what did they call the worst storm we’ve had all winter? Nothing – they didn’t name it. There were heaps of smaller branches blow off the trees in our garden and the pines had been so shredded by the wind you could smell them. The next day we found a huge tree down in Lydford Forest and on Friday saw dozens had been blow down at Northcombe Woods.
5. In contrast to a horrible day Wednesday, spring arrived on Thursday and has been here ever since.
6. On the not so good side on Thursday, I popped into the hairdressers to have my fringe trimmed. My hairdresser works part time, so she rarely trims my fringe. All the other ladies are great, apart from this time, when someone who hadn’t cut it before cut it cock-eyed. I won’t be letting her do it again.
7. After three weeks of very intermittent dieting and reduced exercise, I returned (mostly) to the straight and narrow. Here’s two of my diet staples. Porridge with blueberries and raspberries, for breakfast – in a casserole dish as I cook it in the aga – and the makings of carrot and coriander soup – nice and filling, but virtually no calories.
Hope you’ve had a great week!
