Sunday Sevens 2019 #33

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog.

Although there’s been heaps of rain and lots of flooding again this week, it is finally beginning to look a bit like autumn…

Harry blends very nicely with the changing colours of the ferns, which means it’s time to play Where’s Harry? He’s visible in all these photos – I promise…

As well and torrential rain and sunshine, we’ve also had thick hail – well you know what we say in the UK, If you don’t like weather, wait 15 minutes.

To help keep warm I made some Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Soup…

This year the fungi seem to have been reluctant to show themselves, but finally they seem to be appearing. Unfortunately this cascade of toadstools looked much better in real life…

Once more I’ve mostly hidden inside this week apart from going out for dog walks, but I did make it out to book group. We discussed The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neal Gaiman. Some people very much enjoyed it, but although it was inventive, I felt it was far too much of a junior school age children’s story for it to be presented as adult reading matter.

Hope you’ve had a great week.

Until next time,

Sunday Sevens #24 2109

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog.

I didn’t mention it last week, because I don’t like to advertise that my friends are on holiday, but we’ve had the best sort of guest staying with us for a ten day vacation that ended on Tuesday this week.

We had a wonderful time with an extra fur baby in the house. And in the woods…

And on the beach…

The beach trip above was also a day out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Which included a trip to the cracking crab for a celebratory crab baggette…

There was more celebration this week when I met up with a friend for late birthday cuppa and cake at Lifton Farm Shop. I just love their dancing chickens…

This week, of course, was the beginning of September. Autumn really seems to have arrived in the UK. There’s a distinct autumnal feel to the air and fungi springing up in the woods…

I also spotted lots off these. Not sure what they’re called, but I distinctly remember my mum  having to cut a heap of them out of my hair when we were kids, because my brother threw them at me…

The autumn fruits are also ripening early. I’ve been picking blackberries in the woods…

Harvesting lots of damsons from our damson tree…

But our haul of plums wasn’t quite so good…

20190904_090512

I used the damsons to make jam…

20190904_090355

But, not being a fan of blackberry jam, simply ate the blackberries with yogurt…

And finally I’ll leave you with a pic of Harry watching Ashley and Sully on Britain’s got talent.. He does love his dogs on TV…

Hope you’ve had a great week.

Until next time,
