I used to be good at posting my Sunday Sevens every week, not necessarily on a Sunday, but every week nonetheless. Oh well! Not any more!
The cricket season sadly came to an end last Saturday. But the photo below is from about 2 weeks ago when H was asked to help out and play for the Yorkshire Under 14 B team. Blue skies but I watched from inside as it was a bit chilly!
I’ve been on a bit of a winning streak at golf lately! Hope it continues as I’m playing with the President in the final of the mixed knock out competition on Monday.
What is it with animals? They always think our chairs and beds are theirs!
I won 2m of jersey gingham in Karen from Did you make that‘s Ginghamalong Prize Draw I’ve made a top which you may have seen on my IG, but i’ll be blogging about it soon. There’s lots more ginghammy goodness on her blog if you want to take a look!
Chilli lasagne before it went in the oven – yum yum…it’s making me quite peckish looking a this again!
I’d been missing my gym buddy as she’s been on holiday, and I ended up not going to the gym for 2 weeks! It’s not the same on my own. Here we are a bit red faced after a spin classs.
I’ll never be slim whilst these are sold at a shop on the door step to the hospital, that is open 7 days a week!
Having a sort out of my magazines…. I subscribe to Love Sewing and also Sew Direct. All the supplements for love sewing had gotten mixed up. I spent ages trying to sort them out before I realised that there is a square that tells you which issue it’s from – I’d been scouring through the magazines trying to find various patterns to match the magazines. Doh!
Our last Family BBQ of the summer… but i cooked the burgers and sausages in the oven. I thought the smoke from the BBQ would attract rain clouds.
Chocolate brownie pizza – whatever next!
Crazy workman next door had been sawing a piece of wood on his van roof! I had to look away and was glad when he was safely on the ground.
Me and my GB tried out a new class Clubbercise which involved a dark room, loud music and glow sticks. We had brain ache as we struggled to keep up with the moves, but it was great fun!
3 Days before my nieces posh wedding I discovered the dress I bought (yup bought!!) accidentally when out shopping, along with a matching hat, was exactly the same dress that my sister in law had bought – hubby’s brother’s wife! Disaster! So I decided to wear my Vintage Sewalong dress that had been to the races twice, but I needed something new for my head.
I fell in love with this and the cream colour went perfect with my dress.
The Tall Boy, no I’m not sat down!
The sun setting at Headingley when we watched England beat Pakistan in the last One Day International.
All dressed up and somewhere to go!
The dessert at the wedding, almost too good to eat.
This is Lorraine from the golf club. Those who went on the mini meet up in Halifax will recognise her. Do you recognise the fabric too? She made this very cute dress which fabric bought on the day.
Ooops! I had an emergency on the golf course last week. I’d not stitched the elastic down properly at one side of my skort so it almost fell down when it came undone. Luckily my hair bobble saved me from an embarrassing moment.
This is Leonard. He was a patient of mine around 12 years ago when he fell 30 feet off some scaffolding on a building site and sustained a severe head injury. He’s lost a huge chunk of his memory, and has a severe right sided weakness. It took him a long time to reach a point when he was able to be well enough to try and track down who helped him, it was especially difficult as he couldn’t remember anything about it. It was an emotional time and was lovely to meet him.
(I told him about my Sunday Sevens and he was happy to for me to share this with you).
Changing landscapes below as the fire station is demolished.
A funny one to finish – can you make out the bras stuffed with plants on the railings!!??
