A wet Jubilee Tuesday.

Last day before back to work, goodness how time flies!!

Today was the usual walk with the dogs, only this time H came and he collected a lovely array of wild flowers which was put in a normally unused vase.

Next me and H went to MIL's and used her incredible knowledge and equipment she has for card making which she loves doing, to make a very special card for my parents incredible 50th wedding anniversary next month.

The picture my lovely Aunt kindly sent me of them on their wedding day which we scanned and then did all sorts of cutting, sticking, embossing and raising up of pictures and ha presto one unique card.

Then to round the afternoon off me and H made some gorgeous fairy cakes/mini Victoria sponge cakes with a scrumptious chocolate butter cream filling.

I also wanted to share our other find of the lovely white rose bud we got for Mrs P. The seed that my kind work colleague gave me which is packet that looks like a matchstick box, but in fact held 6 seeds that when planted produce a chilli plant. I also took cuttings from my purchases from Malvern Flower show and they seem to be growing well too.

P.s. Many thanks for your kind thoughts about Mrs P.


  1. That's a great card; its more personal to receive a handmade one than a shop brought one. 50 years is a wonderful achievement - I hope they have a very happy anniversary.

  2. ohh - I hadn't seen your card til now. You've done an amazing job! I love that you've used a picture from their wedding day. The house move is going slowly - we exchagned last week (yeah!) and looks like we'll be in at the very end of August/beginning of Sept. Just hopping to be in for the beginning of school! Hope you're well x

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 .
