Preston-On-Wye, Hereford

Last weekend my partner and I had the joy of a long weekend away with the two dogs as little man was off on an awesome adventure to France.

We rented the most beautiful cottage which had everything and more you could ever need.  It was surrounded by countryside and half an hour from Hay-on-Wye the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains which has part of the Offas Dyke walk.

So here is a photographic imagery of our weekend.

For those who follow the progress of our puppy this is some nice shots to show just how big his paws are and how big he is getting, but oh so cuddly.

I managed to get a little crafting of the crotchet variety in with my never ending blanket!  I also could not resist taking a picture of some Welsh fleece blowing in the wind!

On the way back from our weekend we stopped off at a lovely walk in the Forest of Dean which is only a short trip from home.

Finally for those that know my family will know that we have been blessed with three truely and much loved dogs, with the fairly recent addition of Indie in October of last year.

However sadly our oldest and dearest dog Ebony passed away and is now watching over us have the time of her life with all her other doggy friends.  R.I.P. Ebony we love you dearly xxx


  1. oh Sara, Preston-on-Wye is stunning! So sorry to hear about Ebony - she looks a beautiful dog x

  2. Beautiful photographs as ever, I am glad you had a fantastic break, I did notice somebody was missing and was very sad when I got to the end of the post. Ebony was a beautiful looking old girl, I know how sad and painful it is to lose a beloved furry one. Better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. xxx

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
