Autumn has continued to be so mild, and although most of the leaves have fallen in the sunshine the countryside still seems to be golden. A truly lovely season.
Sandra (aka Wild Daffodil) and I had a lovely walk in Dalby Forest. The larch trees had all turned a rather fabulous colour they almost shone.
Poor Daffy, I lugged her up a big hill to see the Bridestones and then back down again and then said “Now we shall go and see the Nissan Hut”, just as it was getting gloomy. But do you know what? The muted evening light took away the starkness of the Nissan Hut as we approached it.
The pine needles have stared to fall on its roof and it is beginning to settle in a bit. Who knows in ten years time I may really like it.
Sandra whose wardrobe matched the season!
Temporary graffiti. ” Not me Guv!”
We had a great day out in Scarborough, taking in the sawdust hearts.
The sounding of the Last Post affected us both. I intend to return before the exhibition closes and I promise to take lots of pictures.
Mr E and I went off to Hull and met up with youngest son who was celebrating his birthday there with Ms G, they had been feeding the sharks at The Deep.
An unexpected bonus for us.
Thankfully this has been a quieter week and I have had time to recoup energies.
Knitting wise I have finished the grey (groan) jumper for Baby J and I jazzed it up a bit with some rather jolly buttons.
Three frogs and their eyes do joggle. How cool are they? So its back on with the black and white yarn and a jacket for Baby J. I had completed the back before I was asked for the grey(groan) jumper. So I can only lay claim to doing the left front this week.
I shall try to find some really bright coloured buttons for this one.
And so it is the weekend, and the adverts on UK TV for Christmas have begun. I actually found myself looking forward to them coming on TV this year. Some of them are little works of art. My Favourites are this
and this one from Sainsbury’s
So that means it’s time to think about Christmas. No nay sayers here please. I know it is not everyone’s favourite time of year but I like it, and I ignore the commercialism. Although I love these adverts I still shop local.
The Repair cafe is tomorrow so we will drop by and see if we can help. Next year I hope we shall be able to play a full role again. And next week is the Harrogate Knitting and Sewing Show and I have my ticket!
Right now, it is time for my family history group.
Have a great weekend, and do join in the natter.
