Collections

Would you believe that I have just spent two days, dusting, re organising and placing in a large plastic bin, and filling it with dolls that there were too many of, plus other bits and pieces, and it still looks overcrowded. Oh well there has to be something here for any one looking through the house to see. Nightmares.

Morning walk and a bit more of the garden.

we walked along the cliffs this morning, a bit of wind and quite warm but the threat of rain. Home and not much rain, although the wind has got up. I took the photo of the mulberry tree in the orchard, it was glowing, but after this wind it may not have many leaves left. The Gaura Lily in the back garden was waving its leaves around but probably doesnt show here. I am doing really boring stuff, and will be for weeks I imagine, packing the odd things up. I dont think I want to go there.

Around the garden

The evening light has made the trees in the orchard look rather spectacular, autumn at its best. I like my little arrangement by the back door but must plant those seedlings in a pot tomorrow, it is supposed to be sunny. I am cleaning out shelves and cupboads, not a nice job but has to be done. I think if I take it slowly it wont be quite so bad, but what to keep and what to throw out, having lived in this house for nearly 60 years it becomes a problem, especially as I have always been a bit of a horder. Love these photos.

Wet morning in the garden

Taken from the bedroom door this morning. I cant believe that I wont have this garden in the future. It has been very damp, no wind to speak of. All the yellows from the trees this autumn are really spectacular. I am trying to clean out cupboards but today I shopped and I have been trying to get a few more flowers done on the baby blanket I am making it is taking me forever. feeling a bit depressed as well. Ponies now listed for sale. Trying to be up beat about it all but not easy when I have lived all my married life here. Silly me, went to get some plants to put in pots, have to make things look a bit cheerful. Onwards and upwards.

A damp mornings walk

Big drops of rain as we went into get the mail and papers this morning, but we decided we needed a walk It was lovely, really only damp but there was enough rain to run off the front of my rain jacket and wet the front of my jeans quite thoroughly. Home and drying my jeans by the fire. Into a nice warm pair of track suit bottoms. Not going any where so no one will see. I did some washing and have tidied up one shelf, lots more to do. In doing so I found loads of collected seeds I threw some poppy seed around the garden, hope they come up, I have kept some incase I have a garden in the future.

Wrinkly sea and shells

These photos are from yesterday, it was a lovely day then but now it has been grey all day and this afternoon it rained. we need some rain. I have been tidying up, ironing and doing some embroidery. I have been told that my cataract will be done on the 9th of June. Not brilliant timing as the place goes on the market either this week or next and as it is 'expressions of interest' I have no idea when people will want to look through and as I have so little sight in one eye any way I'm not sure how I will manage. Trying not to panic. It would be nice to know where we might live in the future but I dont know that either. Trying to be positive.

My daily stitch this week.

I had a lovely mothers day, lunch with my younger daughter and her family, had a cuddle with my latest great grand son, now 4 months old, all smiles and giggles. Came home with lovely presents from Mille and Mason. Home to flowers from my other daughter and a phone call from my eldest son.
