France ~ May 2019 ~ The Watermill ~ part 2

Part 1 HERE The inside of the watermill was very cozy, so I took a few shots 🙂 Nicola had left us some nibbles and cider for when we arrived. A cool kitchen and some natty eggcups in the cupboard! The snug where we sat to watch DVD’s in the evening The bathroom and our bedroom had views out into the garden Around the outside of the mill was lovely too And we made new friends Marmalade would come for tickles as long as we were outside and Fatcat stomped indoors whenever we were there and sat on Phils knee…

The Sunday Fraggle Report

I didn’t pick up my camera until Wednesday night this week, when I was treated to a magnificent sunset over the houses. That was from my front bedroom, and from the back of the house we also got the moon mixed up in it all. I took some more shots of my christmas tree, possibly went over the top there :). Managed to get a better picture of the birds on The Happy Eater tree..these are long tailed tits. Today all Phil’s kids and grandkids came for a visit, and I got a happy shot of the newest one, Liddy…

The Fraggle report

Not the best of weeks, so am late with my post, Sunday came and went and I couldn’t find the words really. regular readers will know my little cat Storm was diagnosed with renal adenoma back in September and not given long to live. But she carried on unaware of her future and we loved her lots and even hoped they’d got it wrong, she seemed so OK. But  last week she started going downhill, and though we tried convincing ourselves she was just having a  bad couple of days, by Thursday night we knew the time had come. Unfortunately…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ bits & bobs

On Wednesday although it was cold, there was a sunny day, and as I was travelling a fair way up and down the North East, I…

The Sunday Fraggle report ~ bits & bobs edition.

Well it’s slim pickings at the moment with my photography.  I’ve been working extra hours, and it gets dark here at 4.30pm so once I get home from work, sorted home work out, and had dinner, it’s being difficult to feel inspired or motivated. On top of that the weather is pants. But hey- ho I did get a couple to be going on with. Last weekend we went to the Annual Free convention held in Tynemouth, about 20 mins up the road from us. It’s (obviously) a yearly event where die hard fans of the band Free meet up,…
