Good Afternoon lovely people, it's time to find out what has rocked the last seven days in a positive way as it is time for my
So first up the positive in that we adapted to the new vari-focals really quickly after picking them up and they both seem to have the centres right on the glasses and same for hubby too - so we are back to seeing and they are not scratched (I've always been meticulous with my glasses because of my poor eyesight, but my last set ended up with scratches, the likes of which I've never seen before it was mad). So I'm very grateful for being able to see again.
Saturday was a day of helping said 18 year old sorting some final items for his project, printing some of his work off and cutting it so he could stick it in, nothing major but as they say every little helps. We had a grand day with a few old favourite films playing in the background, so it was a positive, albeit very very long.
Sunday and said 18 year old was working, me and hubby decided to walk to the pub again via the muddy bridlepath. You can imagine our surprise when we got there in hiking boots to find it mud free. It's the driest we've ever seen!
The views on the way up are lovely and the sun was shining in between the white clouds.
I spotted this aquilegia on our walk, there were two very distinct different varieties in full bloom. It always reminds me of when I was younger as it was a favourite of my Dads.
There was a very happy herd of cows in the field on our way up, the farmer had obviously cut the grass the day before but he'd left a huge border all the way around that he hadn't cut, so they were all clinging to the sides of the field to get their fill, it made me smile!
I also spotted this in the verge, I remember as a child enjoying picking them and counting the clock, or making wishes with it, these days I sigh a little as dandelions are so invasive and difficult to get rid of once they've got hold, I still think they are beautiful in this form though.
We also passed the flowering hawthorn, this time a scent from my childhood, as the second home we lived in had a hawthorn hedge.
The rest of the week was a bit busy and blurry as usual, even more so at the moment as I'm multi-tasking. Hubby did a volunteering day on Thursday they needed people to play passengers whilst emergency services practiced for a car/train collision, unfortunately he didn't mention the word 'practice' on our family group chat and a lot of my extended family weren't in the know. My brother said "I thought he was a bit chipper, although it did make me wonder if it was a head injury" - I literally fell about laughing when I saw this. This is the photo he took whilst on the train.
And this is the one he took when he got off the train once he'd been 'rescued'!
He managed to send me this photo in the week, which made me smile
I had a fabulous catch up with an old school friend, we are currently plotting a get together/catch up in the near future, so that is something to look forward to.
I booked impromptu tickets for the theatre this weekend, so we've got that to look forward to.
Said 18 year old is away with his girlfriend and they've got there safe, so a win win on that front.
So that my lovelies is my lot this week, I hope you've had a grand week, if you fancy joining in, pop a post together pop back and link up so we can come and visit.
