Two week’s worth of Sunday Sevens today – on a Monday, of course:)
- The husband has been hard at work in the evenings finishing off the bits that need doing before we exchange contracts on the house. We finally almost have railings on our bedroom balcony!!
2. Exploring a new local walk with Tess. I love the way the sun creates flare through the trees.
3. We discovered the derelict building that The Boys have been playing in for years!
4. Another trip down to Exmoor to get to know some of the other villages that we are not so familiar with.
5. We tried out one of the local pubs.
6. We had a stroll through what will hopefully become our neighbouring village very soon. Could there be a more quintessentially English scene?
7. Popping out with a friend the other day could be an expensive exercise when I spotted an all-singing, all-dancing coffee machine….
8. Just after The Hunt galloped at a rate of knots through the fields behind us, we were happy to see a deer that had avoided capture.
9. The view across the fields is ever-changing with the seasons and I caught this rainbow streak as it briefly coloured the sky.
10. No.1 Son called in after a night out with friends in the area. The ‘phone rang mid-haircut….
11. Lobster tail for supper. You’ve got NO chance, Tess!
12. Our local Farm Shop has just extended its café, so I had the perfect excuse to go there.
13. The Farm Shop also has a Trading Barn attached and I picked up this sock box for a fiver. Obviously, I now HAVE to make a ninth pair for myself to fill that last cubby hole.
14. Perfect! Well, almost…..
15. Turns out that handknit socks are far too bulky and the lid isn’t even close to fastening.
16. Talking of socks, the third Christmas pair are blocked and ready to wrap….
17. …..and the fourth pair are already on the needles.
18. I made this Polo Neck, so called because it’s neither a cowl nor a scarf and is all the better for it. It sits nice and snuggly against the neck because of the double rib and doesn’t let in any draughts.
19. I finished this poncho whilst watching Marple. It has been quite the marathon and just needs blocking before I can photograph it properly.
20. Well deserved, as it was quite a feat, that poncho. Prosecco with Pomegranate seeds that travel up and down with the bubbles….:)
21. I moved swiftly on to the gloves that will be gifted with the poncho.
22. Instead of casting on the second glove, I cast on a Polo Neck for myself, allowing just two evenings to complete it in time for the 24th Annual Christmas Shopping Trip to Bath with my daughter.
23. And here’s proof that I did it!
24. First stop, as always, was breakfast in The Pump Rooms.
25. A trio of musicians accompanied our meal.
26. “Quick”, I said, “the bride is in shot – smile!”
Turns out there was a wedding party having breakfast just behind us.
27. The moon is visible well before sunset at this time of year, although this was taken just as the sun had dropped below the horizon at 3:55pm. Days are getting short in the Northern hemisphere.
28. Finally, a festive-feeling shot of berries taken at the other end of the village. Christmas will soon be here!
