Where are my keys 🔑 ???


Saturday 10th to Friday 16th October

A little trip out to Burford Garden Centre 🌹🌵 What some lovely things they have there – if you have lots of spare money to spend!

And then I saw this …

Later in the week, and two walks in one day (one ending with a coffee sat outside Nero’s in the warm sunshine ☕️☀️) must have been a bit too much for me I think! as I lost my house keys at the end of the second walk. It was dark by then so I had to drag Leah to come back out with me so that I could look for them, luckily there they were still led right in the middle of one of the paths in our town. Phew.

And just because this is funny and makes me laugh, watch woman pranks husband


Are there a few people that you would like to do this too?!

Hello 🐐


Thursday 1st to Friday 9th October

Have fun in your new house Hannah 🏠

So the usual trip for my clinic appointment to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham was cancelled due to Covid. Weird to just do it with a telephone call, slightly impersonal. I know they would be there for me if I needed them though. I love the QE 😍

I was lucky enough to have another day out, to a farm park this time not a zoo!

I had a little chat with the animals! 🐐

Ah, when you actually find some charity shops in a nearby town that are willing to take quite a few bags of your donations – 😀 it’s just the simple little things that please me!



Friday 25th to Wednesday 30th September

A trip to the zoo.

I can’t remember the last time I went 🤔 I think it must really be quite a long time ago now!

So here’s a little photo shoot from my trip 📸

It was quite enjoyable to have a day out and to do something different 🙂

Now, have a look at this lovely butterfly 🦋


Tuesday 22nd to Thursday 24th September

It looks like Covid-19 is coming back already 😱

Boris was back on the TV for his ‘address to the nation’, the first one for a while.

“The virus has started to spread again in an exponential way. Infections are up, hospital admissions are climbing.”

Oh goodness 🦠

So here’s a quick recipe in case we get locked down and all want to start cooking again!!!

Apple Cookies – ready in 20 minutes!

These easy to make, soft cookies are bursting with bits of fresh apple and they are irresistible 😋


2 eggs

100g (3.5oz) sugar

100g (3.5oz) butter, room temperature

350g (12.3oz) flour

1 and a half tsp baking powder

2 apples, chopped

half a tsp cinnamon

quarter of a tsp of vanilla

Powdered sugar for serving


1. Using hand mixer beat eggs with sugar and vanilla until light, pale and fluffy.

2. Add butter and continue whisking until incorporated.

3. Separately whisk the flour with cinnamon and baking powder. Add a pinch of salt.

4. Combine dry and wet ingredients to make a thick and smooth cookie dough. Add chopped apples and stir to incorporate into the mixture.

5. Place spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment covered baking pan, then bake at 180C/350F for 20 minutes.

Monday 14th to Monday 21st September

What a beautiful week of weather, oh to have been away at the seaside 🏖

And even better to be staying in this …

Look at this incredible campervan conversion 😱

But this is the nearest I get 🤷‍♀️

So instead I just kept pottering around outside whenever I could. I made this new little area in the garden.

I’ve taken the peas out now and just let my strawberries take over the recycling bin. So 🤞 for lots more 🍓 next year.

I love this pretty little flower.

Oh and I also went walking. I always look out for the birds on these telephone wires when I’m passing.

At the beginning of August there were this many!

Zoom in to see the birds! They seem to meet up here every day in the early evening!

Such beautiful blue sky’s we’ve been having ☀️
