Happy Friday folks and how has your week been?

Mine has been good, work was busy, which I like, we have some great events planned, one of my favourites being the Vintage Hop in June. I feel lucky to work in a job that is varied and interesting. That said, I am always happy when Friday rolls around!

Trevor has learnt a few new tricks this week, he will sit and go down on the ground on command. He has also learnt not to get on the sofa without first being invited {although he does sneak on sometimes…work in progress}. We will be attending his second training class tomorrow morning and I look forward to more good advise.

My dad got back from Portugal yesterday and he has had a brilliant time, I think it has done him good. He has enjoyed some great food, wine, sunshine and lots of lovely walks.

It’s the second week of Love Notes from Jennifer Belthoff, a really beautiful project for anyone who likes receiving snail mail {who doesn’t!}, so if you haven’t already joined up for one of the rounds, I would totally recommend you do.

Not much planned for the weekend here, I hope to read a little, maybe go in the garden, weather permitting. Do you have any plans.

Well, whatever you are up to, have a wonderful weekend!

Weekends

weekends 10 April 2016

{Sharing my weekend with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise, always a warm and lovely place to visit}

Some weekends are slow to unfold with hours idly going by at their own pace and some seem to be over before you know it. Mine has been the latter, but no matter it has been enjoyable all the same. How was {is} yours?

Yesterday my husband and I took Trevor to doggy training classes and it was, well, interesting. Initially he wanted to pick a fight with every dog in the place, including the trainers beautiful Border Collie {luckily she was very laid back about it}. Overall though I think this is going to be a good thing for Trevor, he is a terrier and they do have a tendency to think they are ‘it’ with other dogs, so hopefully we will be able to educate him otherwise. Watch this space.

Today, as promised, has been beautifully bright, so some garden tidying has been done, ironing, dog walking and pottering around the house. Truth be known I had plans to get loads more done, but it doesn’t seem to have worked out that way.

Anyway, time to dry my hair and get ready for the second part of a new series called ‘The Durrells’, last week’s was excellent, so I cannot wait!

Wishing you a great week ahead, whatever it holds, Jane x

this week - friday 30 october 2015

One word that sums up this week is RAIN…there has been lots of it. That said, the sun does appear to be trying to make an appearance as I type, fingers crossed.

Despite the rain, it has been a good week, a few extra days off work {always good} and time spent at home. Days in when it’s raining outside seem even better somehow, don’t you think?

Trevor never ceases to entertain, he is such wonderful addition to our family and an absolute confirmation that I am a ‘dog person’, who knew??

Of course it’s Halloween tomorrow, so sweets have been bought and bagged up for the little visitors and a pumpkin is ready to be carved. Do you do anything for Halloween? My son {being nearly 16} is just humoring me this year, but I can’t let go of it…not yet. We are going to watch The Shining…you can’t beat a bit of horror at this spooky time of year!

I am off to see my wonderful friend this evening for a catch up, food and a drop {bottle} of wine and hopefully a cuddle with Ted too!

Wishing you a very happy weekend.

this week - friday 9 october 2015

This week has held many beautiful moments, nothing earth shattering; just little pockets of loveliness that life offers {if we take time to notice them}.

Work was busy with promotion of Christmas events, only 78 more sleeps {sorry couldn’t resist that!}. I am already looking forward to more twinkly lights that the festive season brings. Personally, I would have them strewn all over the house all year long.

The October days are so pretty, on my walk with Trevor this afternoon the trees were just stunning, the colours took my breath away and the smell of burning wood was in the air…oh how I LOVE Autumn!

Yesterday was National Poetry Day, here in the UK, if you missed my post about it you can catch up with it here, if you like. Do you have a favourite poem?

I have been thinking about my friend Grace this week too. She is in a singing competition with her chorus in Vegas. I hope they have a fantastic time and fingers crossed that they win!

Wishing you a very happy weekend.

this week - friday 4th september 2015

This week has brought a new month and with it a definite whiff of a new season. There is a chill in the morning air and leaves on the ground, Autumn is on her way.

This week has also brought us a new best friend, in the shape of our adorable terrier cross, Trevor! He is a rescue dog and despite only having had him here for two days he has settled right in and it feels like we have always had him with us. We love Trevor.

The rest of the week has looked like beautiful sunsets and busy days at work. We have a big show coming up at work next weekend, so it’s going to be nose to the grindstone next week too!

I do hope you have a had a great week, what have you been up to, I’d love to know?
