Allegedly. This weekend onwards for at least a week. Siberian winds and icy temperatures such as we haven't experienced in recent years in the UK for longer than a day or two. Let's make a lasagne while we talk weather. Being a farmer's wife, the weather has always featured in our day, many times a… Continue reading Armageddon Ice-age is coming ..
Shutter speeds, light metre 35mm roll inside Nothing beats the romance of sorting the SLR. 📷 All a distant memory, As my Iphone clicks a close-up superior to any print I collected from Boots! 📷 Change the angle? Closer still you say? I would happily... But I just ate it, sorry! 🤣
Thank goodness I bought two boxes. Half term and even 17 year old children appreciate a few home comforts, such as Eton Mess, thrown together in seconds - looking and tasting Ab Fab 🌸 But before mummy glances over at the linen apron hanging by the cooker with a vague notion she might do some… Continue reading Apologies to no-one!

Last thing at night, I would open the back door and - lucky to have stables so close - I would hear the familiar deep throaty yet soft noise he would emit at my approach. Yes I would be about to tie… Continue reading Soft nostrils and warm hay breath…

Having had horses in my life from my early twenties for the following quarter century, I knew what having broken chipped nails at the end of chapped hands felt like. It wasn't girly. They were the hands of hard work. But I welcome the… Continue reading The streets are paved with purple nails 💜
But it might leave you peckish if you haven't had breakfast... Nothing like a Shell garage heated-too-quickly snack to fill a hole, and burn the roof of your mouth.

You have to read this!! Trust me, I'm a doctor, of funny bones. Mike2all writes in such a style, recalling events in his life past and present, choosing to share them encased in a type of humour which is right up my street. I promise I wouldn't share with you, my precious friends, anything… Continue reading I just fell off my swivel chair from laughing out loud; seriously!
Wanted to mark the end of the weekend with you.. here, one mouthful for me and one for you; open wide! Actually, I've got a headache, a full-on beastie migraine. So maybe we can recreate that scene from '9 1/2 Weeks' another time (does this phone keyboard not have fractions?). I do suffer with migraines… Continue reading Strawberries & Cream…. let’s just pop that on your tongue 🍓🍓💋💋
