Enough of all that, the main consequence is that I have not done any sewing of late, so I really have to get into catch up mode. The village show is getting closer and I have to sew up the baby's cardigan and finish that piece of stitching, but I refuse to panic. My DH says that I am so laid back sometimes that it's a wonder I don't fall over.
I did manage to go outside and take a photo of another Lily, they are beautiful and the scent is to die for. Just don't get any of the pollen on anything it's a so and so to get rid of. I was going through my photos to find something to put on my blog and found a couple that I took a couple of years ago. I took them from one of our bedroom windows, I thought they were pretty, a reminder of what is to come. I know we don't get anything like the snow some of you get.
The top photo shows part of my garden and 3 of my neighbours cottages, they are thatched cottages, and are very pretty, but my DH says he wouldn't like to live in one because of the risk of fire, I wouldn't say no.
This is a view over part of my village looking towards the River Teign and the hills beyond, I just caught the sunset and its reflection in the river. June lives about 2/3 miles up river. The larger house to the right used to be the Alms Houses, it is now divided into 4 flats for pensioners and is now known as Church Houses.
I did stay up and watch the closing ceremony of the Olympics, that was a marathon, I thought most of the acts were ok, did you see Muse, they come from the town 2 miles down river from me. The singer Matt Bellamy bought a large house for his Mum and Grandmother here in the village. I thought Eric Idle was funny, his song should be our motto 'Always look on the bright side of life'. Roll on Rio! We do have the Para Olympics to look foward to in a couple of weeks.
I hope you will forgive me for not checking my blog friends posts recently, please don't give up on me, I know some of you have been unable to reply to me, I am doing something wrong on the set up, I will check into it when my brain starts working fully. Thankyou for visiting my blog, whether you are an old or new friend, you are all very welcome. Try to get back to you a little sooner next time, so take care of yourselves.
