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…

I used the damsons to make jam…

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,

Sunday Sevens 2019 #9

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Sevens, a post where I share seven or so pictures of my week beyond the blog.

Last Sunday was such a beautiful day we couldn’t resist heading for the beach, even though we were only at the seaside the day before. This time we went to Rock, where the tide was incredibly low…

We walked across the beaches to the Cracking Crab at Polzeth. The view from our table was beautiful…

Lunch was totally yummy…

Monday and Tuesday were the usual mix of work and walkies. Harry and his chums were, as usual, far to busy to actually pose for photos…

When Harry came to live with us he was scared of getting in the car, whined when he was in it and was occasionally car sick.  Since then he’s come on in leaps and bounds, but hadn’t been on any journeys of more than an hour. On Wednesday when we travelled 4 hours up country to visit the in laws we therefore decided to stop after a couple of hours at a Wildlife Trust site to have lunch and a good walk. Unfortunately dogs weren’t allowed in the cafe and it freezing outside.

Harry was absolutely brilliant on both legs of the journey.

Once at the in laws we had some lovely walks to take him on…

Lovely Husband was especially excited when we found a walk that circles the quarry…

While away we also visit both our great niece and our great nephew – unfortunately I forgot to take any pics of our great niece, but here’s LH playing with our great nephew…

On Saturday we met up with friends for a walk, who stopped half way to show us their dancing skills…

All in all a very lovely week.

Hope you’ve had a good one.

Until next time,
