Have been down south, first visiting my pal Helen in Biggleswade. I love Helens home, it is full of dogs & chickens and quirky items so I took some photos indoors and in the garden.
Helen is a fab cook and made us pulled chicken which was gorgeous and has inspired me to buy a slow cooker!
Also it was Halloween so a pumpkin was carved.
As the evening came Helen and I went out with our cameras to catch some autumnal colour and the sunset. I took some shots from the car window as we travelled.
We parked up and walked about to get some detail shots and Helen sneakily took one of me!
Then we went back and had the lush dinner, and had a few wine’s and Tia Marias, then to bed and the next morning we went out to the tree nursery we spotted whilst out and about and took some more photos.
I left Helens on Saturday morning and travelled down to Leighton Buzzard to visit Ben & Lewis. Lewis wanted to go on a boat on Wirren Lake at Milton Keynes so off we went to the park and the lake.
We did quite well at peddling out into the lake, unfortunately the wind was quite strong, the rudder didn’t work too well and we couldn’t get the damn thing to turn round to head back in land. It got quite stressful trying to steer, and I got a BIG headache when I was peddling really hard (must get fitter!!!) so we ended up waving our arms in the hope of being rescued, and just drifted on the lake in the hope we wouldn’t crash into the water skiers. Luckily (?) there were 2 young lasses in another peddle boat who were having the same problem, so they were yelling and waving their arms about, and the chap in charge came out in a speedboat to tow them first, and us second back to dry land. Lewis was well impressed with the speedboat ride, as was I!
Nice view on the lake though 🙂
Anyway, now I’m back home, and have a week off, got lots of things to get sorted, and hopefully if the weather isn’t wet, can get out and about for some more togging.
Laters gaters 😉
