Sunday Sevens – 5th June

Crikey! June already. Another Sunday arrives so quickly and time again for Sunday Sevens. Sunday Sevens is the brainchild of the wonderful Nat at Thread and Bobbins  devised for bloggers to share seven photos of their personal week. This one has been full of lovely sunshine – summer is finally here 🙂 Although who knows how long for?

  1. Last Sunday we had a last day with our lovely daughters before they headed up country.

2. Monday was a bank holiday, so we took a leisurely stroll to Bellever  Tor…

Even the granite rocks look different when it’s dry.

 

3. … and down through the forest…

4. Returning to the carpark, this plastic lizard made us laugh.

5. On Wednesday I went to Chudleigh, where it turned out to be ‘Love Chudleigh week’. I found a lovely young lady by the ticket machine in the carpark who insisted in paying for my car parking.

6. A lovely gesture, but what I loved most about Chudleigh, was the name of this dog groomers…

7. On Thursday the plaster was dry around the aga, so the ceiling and walls could be painted….

10. Yesterday we went into into Exeter  When I asked where the changing rooms were in John Lewis – yep, that’s how rarely I shop for clothes – the lovely lady I asked turn our to be the personal shopper, who had had a cancelation that morning. So she  put me in the personal shopping changing room and kept returning to bring me new  sizes and new clothes to match what I liked.

11. Finally we rounded the week off with an impromptu BBQ with our lovely next door neighbours…

Opps! More than seven photos, but all in all it’s been a fabulous week. Let’s just hope the sunshine stays for another one.

  1. You have to love John Lewis! Did you buy much?
    If it weren’t for the fact that LH appears to have put slightly warmer clothes on and swapped the bottle for a glass, I’d swear he hadn’t moved all week. 😉
    Love Fido Sassoon – that’s not Mr. Hicks just inside waiting his turn is it?

    1. Ha ha – yes, we just leave him at the table all week and hand him a fresh drink and a warmer sweater when he needs one.
      I bought two pairs of trousers and two tops. I was on a mission to by something for a ‘casual’ do we have to go to, since my wardrobe only contains very scruffy clothes or posh frocks and nothing in between,.
      No, not Mr Hicks at the groomers, although the lady was so nice when I asked if I could take a photo, I’d be sending him there if we lived nearer.

  2. My cousin owned a dog grooming business called “The Mutt Hut”. We tried to persuade her that “Doggy Style” would be easier to remember! It’s lovely to be able to use the garden after all that time spent looking after it, isn’t it? A personal shopper sounds wonderful…

    1. LOL! Oh yes, Doggy Style would have been much better 🙂 You’re right,really enjoying the garden now – despite heaps of weeds that have sprung up because I was far too busy enjoying lovely eldest being hereto do the weeding.

  3. Ooooh personal shopper! I’ve heard that those experiences are amazing but I never managed to have one 😦 Love the thought of the young lady paying for parking; ‘Paying It Forward’ seems to be quite a big thing over here! I’ve had 2 people at work buy the shopping of the person behind, so kind! Always nice to see Mr Hicks 🙂

    1. Buying the shopping behind is a lovely thing to do, but it does feel very odd when a stranger offers to pay for something for you. It was a lovely gesture, but even though it was only 30p it didn’t seem right the young lady paying for my parking ticket when I could perfectly well afford it – of course I can still pay it forward to help someone else, but I would never have accepted if it had been her money.
