Five on Friday

Good Morning,

Well here we are it's Friday again, and it's half term, this term has flown by...we have been busy looking at secondary schools for pickle, had a break away which was lovely and just generally getting back into the swing of normal routines.

I have a mixture of photos for this weeks Five on Friday..I am joining in this link up which is run by the lovely Amy at Love made my home, and I really hope she starts to feel better soon.x


Here are some of the ducks that we got the pleasure of knowing on our weekend break..


Halloween prep has started in our house, I have been collecting stuff for many years now and this year we have so many decorations to put out.  Pickle is trying different face painting and I have even knitted some Halloween theme socks..


I managed to dust off the sewing machine to make these pretty patchwork cushions for Autumn.


I brought some pretty Liberty fabric, and I have the patterns to turn them into something nice to wear, I just need an extra 6 hours in the day to do it!


Autumn is well underway and the garden is starting to look sad, but these to are in full bloom.

Well I really hope you enjoyed my photos, and thanks for stopping by to catch up, hope to see you again soon!

Have a nice weekend!

A Lovely Weekend...

Good Afternoon,

Well we had the most lovely weekend, it was so relaxing and just what we all needed.

We got a lovely caravan, overlooking the lake so each morning the view was so pretty and we really enjoyed watching the ducks.

Pickle had fun making friends with them, and then they kept following her!

We went for walks around the lake and woods, did swimming both days and I didn't have to cook once yay!

It so lovely to have family time without any distractions, and just spend time together making memories.

We go to a nice caravan park, tucked away in Sussex, not far from us but it's so relaxing and pickle always enjoys just being in the caravan.

I even manage to finish Halloween sock number one!

I finished my pumpkin spice sock last week too.. so pleased.

And yes we have Halloween pumpkins already, hubbie picked them up the other day...

I can't believe pickle finishes for half term on Friday, it seems to be going way to quickly, we had applied for her secondary school, now the long wait to March.

We have had some lovely sunsets lately, here is one from last night, the photo doesn't do it justice as it was much more pinker then this.

I hope you all had a great weekend, and have enjoyed my little post. Thanks for stopping by

Tuesday Thoughts

Good Afternoon,

Been absent again due to illness!, hope everyone is well...

It's colder now and I have to say tights and jumpers are out and being worn, now there is no turning back.

Well managed to finish my new patchwork cushion covers for Autumn..

I am so pleased with them, and they will go perfectly in our lounge.

Mittens the cat has been as cheeky as ever, she has grown so much..

While I was feeling unwell at the weekend, I managed some more rows of my Cupcake blanket, I find this so relaxing as it's only tow different kinds of stitches.

Halloween is coming to the shops at the moment, I don't like all this Clown business going on, I have to say!, which when I read about people jumping out on people, make my worry.

I am looking forward to a breakaway to our favourite spot and seeing this view again soon...
It's time to spend together as a family and relax.

Well I hope you enjoyed my post today and thanks for stopping by

A Busy Weekend

Good Afternoon,

It's a really lovely sunny day today, but it was certainly fresh this morning.

Well we had a really busy weekend, we decided to decorate the dining room some time ago, and this weekend we finally got round to it, the walls have been painted a lovely fresh Ivory Lace and the woodwork is white satinwood.

We had to get some new dining chairs and I am really happy with these new additions.

Here is the finished room (well still got to put up the curtain pole and curtains)...

After decorating I managed to cast on my halloween theme socks yay, happy face!

I love weekends, spending time together, and getting the house organised, but it seems the weekend goes way to fast.
I did cook a Sunday Roast yesterday with Apple crumble for pudding, no pictures as it was gone all to quickly by hubbie and pickle.

With nights getting darker earlier, my blue fairy lights brighten up the kitchen.

I am so happy as Strictly Come Dancing is back and  I love it, I have watched it from the first series, so Saturday nights are now back to Strictly nights!, I will however miss Downton Abbey this year, but I will just have to watch it on Sky demand instead!

Hope you all have a good Monday, and thanks for stopping by
