For the past few months I've been going to a floristry workshop, something I would not normally think of doing, but a friend suggested it and so we went. Last night was the final one and I felt really sad, as it has been one of the most interesting, enjoyable and strangely soothing things I've done. Mostly down to these two girls. I'm already looking forward to the Autumn ones.

Stop and stare 14

It seemed as if time stood still when I saw this scene. I couldn't help but stop and stare, imagining what pastoral England might look like in the 1950s, not the 21st century. I hope to be doing this when I retire.

Celebrating . . .

Yesterday we celebrated the Queen's Jubilee. We had a tea party at a friend's house and I ate my bodyweight in sandwiches, scones and cake, it was delicious as you can see. I'm not particularly a royalist but I cannot help but admire the Queen at 86 and the 60 years of her reign.
