I have been a lucky girl this week, I have received two bouquets of flowers. One from my husband, who thought a vase that I had removed from the kitchen and put on top of my bureau for safe keeping needed some flowers in it. My friends from our monthly craft group will recognise this vase, they gave it to me for my 60th birthday in October.
The other bouquet was from my youngest son as a thank you for securing tickets for him for his favourite NFL team who are playing at Wembly later this year. Obtaining the tickets from Ticketmaster turned out to be a bit of a nightmare so it was great to know that he was appreciative of my efforts!
I do love having flowers on display and they certainly brighten the place up.
I also finished my DH's scarf yesterday, he is really pleased with it and has christened it already.
Today we have been walking at another local nature reserve, this time Anton Lakes which is only a mile from the town centre but attracts quite a lot of bird life and is pleasant to go for a quick stroll when you don't have too much time.
This time we did see a kingfisher. Unfortunately I only had my wide angled lens on the camera so I didn't manage to get a photograph of it. My DH did take this photograph of an adorable little wren though which I really like.
Well that is all for this time, I hope you are enjoying reading my blog as much as I am enjoying writing it. Next week is going to be very busy with the kitchen installation but hopefully we will be able to get out and about somewhere and find something interesting for me to point my camera at.
