BRING ME SUNSHINE
This morning some friends came over for the day and we all went for a walk ,to enjoy the wonderful warm sunny day ,Fergal sun bathing
The river Swale and beautiful wood land close to our house , look at that sunshine....
WE found this deer scull on the moors, bit grim but interesting , I will put it in the garden..What we had for lunch ,sausage casserole cooked in ale with Herby dumplings served with Stilton mash...nice even though I say it my self.
This is my every day pottery
After a long day and waving good bye to our friends , I then retired to the bathroom to gather my thoughts and relax ,and Look what was waiting for me to read in the bath country living ,English and the USA version, I subscribe to booth, one of my little pleasure's. This I bought at a car boot in Normandy ,2 euro es a bargain I think!
D hates this picture , He says she looks miserable! I rather like her , its quite a old picture and I think she looks serene,what do you think?
I spent a lovely hour in here relaxing , after a stressy night and busy day don't you think I deserved it? !
This is the base of an olds gas lamp that we adapted in to a soap dish holder.
This is my Press where I keep all my linen and towels , the wire basket filled with loo rolls I bought in Honfluer last summer , it brings back lovely memories of a fab place.
Last night my 16 year old camped out with a group of friends ,boys and girls, Yes I know its early March and still officially winter . I did,nt want him to go for many reasons , the cold, the dangers that my mothers mind sees, I don't know about any of you with teenagers of this age , but I find it so hard to juggle my feelings of protectiveness with letting him have his independence and to gain life experience ... So he went ,kitted out with enough provisions he could barley carry them, Supplied by a fussing me , his words as he headed to the door were ! " no mum I don,t need a flask of horlicks ", . They camped about 1/2 a mile away in some open fields, At about 11,o,clock , after me saying too many times , do you think he,s OK, ...D gave in and SAS style crept along the river bank in the dark and peered at the camp site to make sure they looked OK, his comment on reporting back to me was ,I could get bloody arrested for hiding behind trees in the dark peering at children!!!! I spent a sleeplessish night ... half listening for a phone call or knock on door( to be fare he as camped out before ,but in high summer and 200 yard from home)H e was fine , had a great time and came home covered in mud this morning with a group of friends, who got feed bacon sarnies ,but they didn,t seam keen to drink the huge flask of horlicks I prepared earlier!!!
