My Sunday in pictures

Hello Lovelies,
yesterday was just another ordinary Sunday. Ordinary but at the same time very special, with so many people and things to be thankful for.


A leisurely breakfast... Porridge for my love and I :0)

10 AM.....

 Ripple appreciation...It grows :0)


 fresh air on the way to the DIY shop

 It was cold in the gardens behind the war memorial, with ice in the water where the sun hadn't reached.

 But there were still a few brave favourite colour...ummm.

 Windmills, waterfalls and pretty bridges are among the many things that make me smile.

 After a while the cloud gathered and the wind was chilly....time to go.

12 midday.......

 Defrosting with my favourite books.

Delivering hot chocolate.... Eldest was braving the garden to work at sharpening my dad's old chisels. It's 26 years since he passed away and it's so nice that they are getting another lease of life.

I only popped out to the compost bin with the veg peelings and refilled the bird feeders.........

 Our feathered friends need a little help right now.

 A very simple Sunday dinner...lots of veg, and there are some sausages under the home made Yorkshires too :0)

3.PM ..........

 planting this year's Amaryllis....I love this ritual of growing a big beautiful flower. Slowly watching it emerge and finally bloom, through the darkest months of the year.

 4 PM..........

 A warm mince pie and a cup of tea....just shop bought...Morrisons....but nice and tasty and not too sweet.

5 PM.......

A simple trip to see the Christmas lights in town....we thought they looked really beautiful this year........

It was freezing and the moon shone brightly in the cloudless sky..............


 I nice balanced tea. Sweet and savoury crumpets....ooops there seems to be a lot of comfort food around here at the moment :0)

7 PM..........

 crochet in front of the telly. I do love a bit of Strictly

8 PM.........

A relaxing soak in the bath before the Sunday night rush.

A simple family favourite sort....I am truly blessed.

  1. Lovely, lovely day. Thank you for sharing with us. So fun.

  2. I have been enjoying your blogs for a few years now and it's only today that I realise we live in the same area. We only moved to the area a couple of years ago and like you really love living here. Did you go to the switching on of the lights on Saturday. My husband was singing in the choir, who sang just before the switching on.

  3. What a lovely easy day - perfect start to the week. We are new strictly fans here - loved Anita x
