Evening all - apologies - it has been a rather busy day I'm afraid - too much work and no play!
Means your Rocking post is late
So first up - weekend walks by the dam - proved very fruitful on the nature spotting front. Can you see him?
I also found this little guy on our jaunt, enjoying the sunshine and the walk along the wooden bridge!
Me and hubby managed a selfie, but I look tired, I know I do - 45 hour weeks working at maximum speed means I look absolutely wrecked - but I did enjoy the walk!
This is at the end of the walk, an old water mill, which still works producing flour that you can buy and take home to use. It's such a lovely building and not far from where we live.
It was gorgeous to walk through the woods, they were much cooler under the tree canopy
Next up a class with my Mum, she said she fancied having a go as neither of us have done structured class before, despite me wanting to do one for a while. So we headed over to do the class. It was really good, I don't think I've ever done such a precise class, or turned out such a good piece of sewing. I must admit I'm a bit of a 'it'll do' kind of sewer, so it was good for someone to slow me down and show me that undoing and sorting, results in a better piece!
Here is a sneaky shot of my Mum in the midst of sewing.
I was very apprehensive as we set off, but I needn't have worried!
And this is the bag I did the following day all on my own! I was really pleased with the finished item!
Sunday morning sandwiches were nom!
A morning walk treated us to this view
and more flowers from hubby!
I managed to do a scrapbook layout - that is 2 in two weeks, sigh, - I really need to sort this!
The working week has been stressful and fraught, but I'm at Friday with a bank holiday in front of me. Said 16 year old had shirt signing day on Thursday. The end of his uniformed education at the least and the closing of one chapter.
He has 10 more exams after half term, but has now been officially stood down for study leave and as I'm late posting, I can confirm that we had a fab mass this afternoon and an Oscar style ceremony afterwards with the kids.
And that my lovely people is the week that was, I hope you had a fab one, if you fancy joining in pop a post together pop back and link up and we shall come and visit.
