As seen - catch up

I haven't blogged for a few days, really not feeling up to much, and leaving it too late into the evening most nights so doing a little catch up on events

FRIDAY

I heard a rag and bone man coming round the streets so grabbed my camera hoping for a good photo of the lorry loaded with scrap metal and odds and end. Unfortunately when I found him it was a little dirty white van nothing worth a photo at all. :(
Having my camera to hand I decided to photograph some of the hedgerow and found this lovely white lilac

I helped my blind friend choose a vacuum cleaner in the afternoon. We tried an independent electrical shop to start with as Lisa really wanted to support the small businesses, but they didn't have what she wanted. So decided to leave it. We walked back towards town and went into the Range for a cup of tea and as we were leaving I spied little cylinder cleaners exactly what she wanted and at a reasonable price. So we felt the Lord had lead us to the right place at the right time.

I baby sat for Neil and Gemma in the evening. Rufus was not a happy bunny when Gemma left but eventually calmed down and went to bed.

SATURDAY

Having spoken to Neil yesterday I realised that I didn't have the theme park tickets, Neil was given theirs when he paid for them but for some reason I wasn't given mine. I really think that the Lord prompted me to ask Neil about the tickets so this morning I dashed into town to Thomas Cook and got that sorted. Do hope that there is nothing else missing.

In the afternoon I scrapped this page

Rub-a-dub-dub

I forgot to take any photos so grabbed my camera and managed to snap this one of Rudi telling me he was hungry and was I going to feed him

SUNDAY

Today is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, parties and big lunches going on all over our land. We have a Big Lunch at the church. We are decked out in bunting and immediately after the service the tables are laid out in a long line just like a street party.


I take snaps around the church and I want to make this one my picture for the day. This beautiful Patriotic Floral Arrangement done by Angie who organises the flower rota hasn't she made a brilliant display.


I even decided to dress in Red white & Blue for the occasion including making a Patriotic bow for my neck


today I am grateful for being able to watch the Thames river pageant on the TV
for being indoors rather than out in the awful weather

That's a lovely picture of you!
We really enjoyed watching the festivities on TV over our morning coffee yesterday.

Those flowers look really nice - we managed to watch the flotilla on TV off and on and even recorded so we could see what we missed. (it was on from 9 to 1 here in our part of Canada).

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
