Rain and Sunshine

These were our days this week. When it was grey, dull and rainy
we stayed stayed at home, kept warm and cosy, and did our usual
pottering about. We cleaned, sorted and rearranged closets, rooms
and the dining table. We also baked, crafted, played and ate big, hearty,
warming meals in the evenings.

When it was bright and sunny we went to the playground,
picking up flowers and fallen leaves along the way. We've made
a little autumn posy with them and they're now proudly displayed
 on our mantel. We also had fun at the city farm and yesterday
 we had a slow, happy meander down a section of Abbeydale Road,
admiring lovely things on shop windows and finishing at
a beautiful tea room with beautiful and delicious things.

It's been a cold and busy autumn week with lots of rain
but we've had sunshine too which was wonderful. We've had
good fun both indoors and out and we've tried something brave and
new: swimming (for me and Lulu) and driving to new places (me).
 Markie used the word 'delicate' to describe a figurine. It's not
brave but it's new and we're just as proud.

We hope next week will be a good one too and we'll all
stay healthy. Hope you do too. See you soon!


  1. It looks like you had a lovely weekend, full of good things and something for everyone in the family. Good for you driving more! I hope it's going well and feeling natural to you.

  2. It sounds as though you had a wonderful week. Your autumny collections are so lovely, I especially like the arrangement that you made. xx

  3. I really like the look of that urban farm, especially all those lovely plants to sale. And you have such a great collection of vases and jugs! x

  4. What a lovely week. I lived near Abbeydale Road as a student...I bet its changed loads (no tea rooms then!!). I spy peppa pig...LittleR just loves peppa!
