Sunday Sevens 24th February.

Last weekend I joined friends for a walk and Sunday Lunch. The part of the A59 that by passes Clitheroe has been closed at weekends due to the building of a new round-about ( much uproar from residents), so this normally extremely busy road is eerily quiet on a Sunday and you can walk down it ( or indeed sit on it) without being squished by on coming motorists. We managed to walk part of the way to the village of Worston along the road, pretending we were in a zombie apocalypse. 🙂

Meanwhile my other half was decorating the bedroom, and what a grand job of it he has made too. I am super impressed! We went for a teal, mustard and white colour scheme ,which is a change from the pale blue & white it was previously. If your interested, the wallpaper and paint is from Twitter Lane in Clitheroe, the bedding and curtains are from Dunhelm Mill and the free standing lamp is from Next.

At the moment myself and my work colleagues are experiencing an unsettling time at work. Our department will be reducing its hours to Thursday to Sunday in May. My current hours are Monday through Thursday. Oh dear! Anyway we have to apply for the weekend jobs in April ( if we want them) and by then we should also know if redundancy is an option. So it’s looking like come May, I will be either working totally different hours…or be jobless! Neither are a very pleasant thought. I’m going to make the most of my weekends whilst I still have them and am still earning money. 🙂

On Friday I visited Mum in Cumbria with my sister, niece and nephew. The weather was lovely so we had a walk up Askham Fell and made friends with the fell ponies. The sky was blue, the gorse was in bloom and smelt of coconuts.

And yesterday was even more Spring like in Lancashire. It was actually t-shirt and ice cream weather. Wil, Hugo and I did a 12 mile walk and discovered an old pack horse bridge. Long may the sunshine continue!

Thanks to Natalie at Threads & Bobbins for devising Sunday Sevens, a collection of seven or more photos from the last 7 days.

Bedtime blues.

Inspired by a post over on Louisa’s blog, Duck In A Dress , I thought I would share with you my favourite room in the house ~ the bedroom. 🙂

The reason it is my favourite room is probably because we ( or should I say the other half ! ) decorated it in relaxing blue and white. Blue is my most prefered colour and I really do love our white floorboards, though they are a bugger to keep clean….2014-05-24 16.41.49

We have an old clock on the wall which we never wind up as it is incredibly noisy! I love the feature wall which is blue with white and pale gold flowers on stalks that look a bit like lacey cow parsley. The wall paper was from Homebase and I think they still sell it.

Our cat Slinky seems to almost permanently live on the bed , hence the fleece at the bottom. I really want to get her a cute cath kidston pet bed , but I doubt she will even use it. I can almost forgive her. 🙂

I recently purchased a mirror for the dressing table from a little shop called Chillimoon in my local town and my lovely blue chair came from Sew To Soul
