Sunday Sevens 2019 #1

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens : A post were I share seven or so photos of my week away from the blog. Sunday Sevens was invented by Nathalie at Thread and Bobbins.

Since we’ve had Harry, we’ve started to re-explore the old dog walks we used to do when Mr Hicks was young and spritely.  Last Sunday we walked along the river at Fatherford – haven’t been here for several years…

Lots of lovely trees to play hide and seek behind.

After our walk I managed to fit in a little patchwork…

Unfortunately our afternoon walk on Monday was disaster. While walking with a friend who has a young and incredibly excitable dog, her dog took her feet from under her and she broke her ankle. No pic to show you – well it would have been mean to start taking pictures.

Tuesday evening a friend’s daughter came round for me to turn up her ball gown.

It was so lovely – I really should have taken a pic of her in it! Doh!

On Wednesday we had the first snow of the winter. Not a lot, but enough to stop the school buses running and for my friend’s boys to bring their sledges on a dog walk.

With the weather turning colder, I made some soup to warm our cockles…

Thursday we had more snow – most of which was unpredicted and fell just as it was getting dark and people were travelling home from work. (I would have said ‘rush hour’ but if you’ve ever been to West Devon you’d just laugh.) Lots of people in the South West were stuck in their cars overnight. Fortunately we were tucked up safely at home and on Friday we  had a lovely snowy dog walk on the moor…

In the evening we walked to the pub, only to remember half an hour later that I’d forgotten to move the casserole to the bottom of the aga. Fortunately my lovely next door neighbour had come in her car, so gave me an emergency lift back home. I caught it just as it was about to completely dry out and start to burn. Here’s my share rejuvenated just before we ate it…

On Saturday we rounded the week off with more snowy dog walks…

So that was my week; sewing, cooking, looking after an animal and not going to the ball. Just call me Cinderella.

Hope you’ve had a great great week.
