Never seen anything like it in my life….

Home again , home to exercising in the pool plus a visit the chiropractor….long story, not a good week ‘back wise’, now having to contend with ‘weak hips’ lol.
Home to cool very cool weather interspersed with a few sunny sort of warm hours minutes. Home to my own bed – what is it with us oldies and our own beds. There was a time when I could sleep anywhere ….not these days.

Anyway……. I think it’s time for a bit of light relief



The Golfer has a some of these hiding out in our garage – wonder if they’re related 😊

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week.

Afternoon Tea with a difference

Some more photos from the archives plus a little story to go with them.

Years ago bloggers had loads of fun organising ‘virtual’ events.  
A bit like pandemic events these days – just like in real life except online😊

One of these was to be an Afternoon Tea.
So when I was talking about this to a friend she laughed and said
‘that sounds lovely…fabulous fun!
then followed up with ‘ but wouldn’t an actual tea party be lovelier?
We could have cake and little tiny sandwiches with no crusts
and cups of tea and all that!
And you know what, we could have it outside in the garden 😊

So I let her run with the idea just to see what she’d come up with
First of all she fancied ‘Low Tea’
Served on a low table on the deck

Low table for Low Tea!

Then it was to set a little table up down near the garden – Champagne Tea she called it.      
No cakes and pastries- just strawberries and cream and drinkies!

Champagne Tea in the garden!

Ready for Strawberries and Cream - and Champagne!

But not everything went to plan.  
It was supposed to be a nice day but somehow the weather didn’t turn out to be that good.  Just as I had everything set up a very fine rain started to come down
Strawberries ready to go – the roses were looking good

Strawberries and whipped cream!

Then my dear friend (yes the very same one I’ve been talking about recently) walked in the door not feeling too well
No food had been prepared so she’d made a quick change of plan

And had popped into the local bakery – hey presto
Cream Tea  – casual home style

A cream tea (also known as a Devonshire tea, Devon cream tea or Cornish cream tea)is tea taken with a combination of scones, clotted cream, and jam

We ended up on the deck having scones, whipped cream and jam (with butter for me).   
Plus a few chocolate bits I had in the cupboard
Fabulous  Fun!

There’s always one…..

I’m sure most of us who’ve had cats in our lives have had at least one who’s decided that ‘you are theirs’. They don’t just live with you and the family, they want to own you and you alone.

Kiera was one of those…..so much so she had the nickname of ‘my brown shadow….wherever I was she would be there…..as close as she could.

Meet Minnie ….she’s been providing my smiles recently
She reminds me so much of Kiera

Fun Friday – the day you forget the worries of the week.
I think we all deserve a smile at the moment 😊
