Hello lovely ladies! Happy Friday!
Isn't he a cute little animal? He (or she) is called a quokka.
The card was sent to me from Germany and it has that lovely stamp on it about Freedom of Press.
So, what have you all been up to this week? I will show you what we have done. (Never a dull moment in our household).
We went to buy some essential oils and I met Jacqui who I had met at the Intercambio Spanish practice. We arranged to get together this week.
The book I read (Death at Eden's End) is set in the Lake District, in Derwentwater. A place that I have visited many times.
One of our grandchildren was being baptized in the UK and people had arranged a video link, but at the crucial moment (typically just as he was being 'dunked') the connection failed. It had been video-d so we watched it later.
Monday I went walking again and I managed to go to the post office to buy more stamps.
Tuesday is market day in our village and we both went and had a quick look. Hubby had bought some trousers a few weeks back and he likes them a lot, so we looked to see if that vendor was there again. Yes, he was, so he bought two more pairs. (And a face mask as you can see).
I used my new pan again. I really like it.
Wednesday I spent a day in the kitchen. I had planned a roast dinner that day, as I had found a local chicken (corn fed), so I did an old fashioned roast dinner. (Yes, in this heat!) And it was lovely! I also cooked another lasagna, as Jacqui and her husband were coming the next day and i wanted to have it ready.
My sister sent me the black and white photo of us when we were children. (I'm the older one on the left). I will blog about that (and the building in the background) on Tuesday.
Yesterday we really had a fantastic day. Jacqui and Toni came. We didn't really know them, but we discovered we are on the same wave length and it 'clicked' and we had a really good time. We showed them around near our house (they don't live in our village) and we found this 'nest'. At least we think it is a birds nest. It has a small hole in the top. I'm sure Kate will be able to tell us yay or nay.
That was my week. How has yours been?
Of course I will put some funnies at the end. A mixed bag this week, interspersed with some words of wisdom.
Wishing you all a fab weekend and a good week ahead.
