Hi there I thought I would gather last week’s pictures together and make a Sunday Sevens post. 🙂
Last weekend I came upon an Honesty Box selling eggs whilst we were walking in Rossendale. As one of the entries on my 25 Before 45 ~ A Bucket List. is to make a meal from provisions bought from an Honesty Box, I left the requested £1 for six eggs and the following day we made pancakes for breakfast. So yummy but I am not sure one ingredient purchased this way can warrant me crossing it off my list?
Spring is on its way for sure now. 🙂 The snowdrops are almost over but blossoms are appearing on the trees, Daffodils and Crocuses are brightening up the parks and Celandines and Daisies are popping up everwhere. It feels good!
The decorating is over for a couple of months. Upstairs is pretty much done now. All that is needed are some more pictures for the stairs and landing. I am pretty happy with these framed retro Lake District Views we found in card form from Love The Lakes in Keswick.
Only a little over 3 weeks until we are off to London for some Birthday celebrations. My little sis is going to be 40! Eeeek ! So we are all booked into ‘The Big Smoke’ for 4 nights in April. So far we have a theatre trip planned and of course an Afternoon Tea. 😉 . Hoping to book The Sky Garden for amazing and FREE views over the cityscape too. And maybe use a water taxi to Greenwich. Decisions. Decisions.
So I have been scanning my London Guide books for things to do. Any recommendations?
Sunday Sevens was devised by Natalie at Threads And Bobbins.

My favourite thing to do in London is a trip up the river from Embankment to Hampton Court, but that is probably because I love nosing into people’s houses and gardens!
We are stopping not far from embankment so that is definitely something to think about. 🙂
It’s slow and relaxing!
Beach combing on the Thames, sure to find some amazing stuff. I love the pictures this week especially the one with the snowdrops and the pancake!!
Is that beach combing called Mud larking? Thanks for liking the pics. The pancakes were good and its always lovely to see snowdrops. Just wish they lasted a wee bit longer.x
Yes mud larking!
Have a wonderful time in London, I’d love to visit the Sky Garden too. Hope you get to see many sights! I’d also like to visit the Shard! 🙂
Love seeing honesty boxes, but when we pass one they are always empty! I would love to own a chicken, I’m not a big fan of eggs but would give the eggs to my family. I think chickens are so cute!
Your decorating looks good. Those look like really steep stairs!!
Thanks for sharing your Sunday Sevens, I’m trying to compile one too 🙂
Thanks Christine. I am looking forward to London.Couldn’t live there but its great to visit. I am hopefully going to book the Sky Garden next week. Tickets are free and come out 3 weeks inadvance.
Its not often we come accross honesty boxes so it was exciting to see one to be honest. 😉
I had a pet chicken when I was a kid…but it got killed by a fox. 😦 We know people who keep them though and they have had no probs in town.
Looking fwd to your Sunday Sevens. 🙂
Great 7 snaps Shazza! Spring does good in our soul, can’t wait for the cold to be over either!
Have fun in London, I am sure I’ll be reading your adventures there here in your Blog. Birthdays, decorating, and travelling sounds all great…Seize the day!
Thank you. 🙂 Yes we all need the Spring to show itself now. Im looking forward to London! X
Lovely pictures, I really like the one with the castle in the background.
The Lake District cards look great, those vintage ads are gorgeous, so cheerful.
I hope your trip to London is great. Check out the Kensington Roof Garden, free to visit when it’s not booked for a private party: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kensington_Roof_Gardens I see someone has already mentioned mudlarking, which is great fun, sometimes London Walks do guided walks with an expert who’ll let you know what you’ve found. One of my favourite things to do in London is wander along the south bank from the aquarium/ London Eye past the national theatre, watching street performers, checking out the huge book stall, along to Tate modern and a wander over the wobbly death eater millennium bridge.
That walk sounds really lovely and I will chek out The Kensington Roof Garden. Thanks for the info Naomi.X
You’re welcome, have a great trip!
Wow can’t believe there are flamingos living in the garden. 🙂
Amazing isn’t it 😀 you can’t see it from the street at all, but there’s all that going on above your head.
Great pics. And yes, it’s definitely felt as if everything is coming to life this week – or at least over the last few days. The crocuses and daffodils seem so abundant this year. And, if I may judge, no, the whole meal needs to be made from the honestly box. Sorry x
Ha I kind of agree. At least two ingredients anyway……..x
Tell Hugo Hicks is sure his garden is just as good in it’s own way xx
What lovely pics! I adore the spring blossom! What a great hen house!
The National Portrait Gallery is free, and a Thames bot trip is a great idea.
Hi Emma , yes I have been the gallery and a boat trip sounds fab.x
I think your (feline) foreman must be saying you missed a bit! I like the framed postcards, they’ll look great on those stairs.
Thank you. Yes she’s a good foreman. Not to bossy!
Don’t you love Spring (and honesty boxes?) 🙂 🙂 So much promise! Have a great time with Sis! We’re ‘popping’ down to Anglesey today. A first 🙂
Oh lovely. Will you go to Beaumaris? Have a great trip.:)
Wow, beautiful pictures! Isn’t it great when spring is just around the corner!
It certainly is! Thanks for the comment.x
