Bizarre.....

I do try and do gardening but i really know nothing about plants, we've had these plants by the front door for years and today i noticed one has sprouted and looks very strange, i dont know what they are but sasha decided to go and take a closer look .....

We were more than a bit suprised today to see a squirrel in our garden, we sometimes see them in autumn on the way to school but have never seen one near our house, so we quickly managed to get a photo before it scampered away .....

Last Night.......

We had such a lovely evening, rich had the night off work so after dinner we went to crantock which is the next town along the coast from us. We could usually walk there but as it was high tide the sea comes inland to form the river gannel which then separates newquay and crantock.......
The first photo is the view we had to our left, a bit too bright as the sun was low in the sky...

This next photo shows the view of the river to the right, the houses overlooking it are on the newquay side and are all amazing, we often sit discussing which we'd have if we won the lottery !.....

Lastly a photo of esme still enjoying the sunshine at 8 pm when shes got school in the morning ....

This week......

Im sorry if people have been checking for new outfits but im afraid there wont be any untill next week as this week there just hasnt been enough time to sew. On sunday my little girl esme slipped on some glass while rockpooling (we live near to the beach) so we spent the afternoon at the hospital, she got sent home from school on monday and had to return to the hospital. So as shes been on crutches weve been going to school in the car, we usually walk and that gives zach our dog his daily exercise but ive been having to take him out at other times in the day, so ive not had my usual long stretches of sewing time......

 Esme and her crutches....

Cherries......

When i was little in the 70s when it always seemed to be warm in the summer , my mum thought it would be fitting attire for me to wear a swimming costume or bikini at all times. My friends used to laugh when we were older when they looked back at photos of birthday parties from when we were 7 or 8 and they were all dressed in floor length party dresses and i was there in my swimming costume , i remember having a pale blue towelling one with a high neck and a chunky white zip up the front and i remember playing on the forbidden building site in a purple bikini and falling off a plank of wood straight into a ditch full of nettles. One of my favourite things to do at that time was sit up the apple tree in the garden reading, so i thought i would take a photo of this 1970 ish waif (who sits on my shelf all year round in her swimming costume) sitting in the cherry tree in our garden.......
