Sunday Sevens ~ 14th April.

Hello and welcome to a Sunday Sevens. This is a collection of seven or more photos from my week. Exciting stuff eh!

Coffee Table ~ We have acquired a coffee table at last! I can’t tell you how fantastic it is to have somewhere proper to pop my brew/wine instead of the floor. Hurrah! Also it’s great for displaying my cacti coaster tree. πŸ™‚

Rhubarb Cleaner ~ Thanks to my friend Jo for gifting me a bottle of ……. Method Anti-Bac wild rhubarb cleaner. The kitchen smells so delicious ly rhubarby after cleaning. And as a big fan of all things rhubarb, I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. 😁 Method Anti-Bac is probably available at most supermarkets. Jo bought it from Booths.

Cheese Easter Egg! ~ Speaking of Booths, Wil found his perfect Easter Egg there. It’s not chocolate, it’s cheese. πŸ™‚

Waffles and a Walk ~ The kids are off school for the Easter break ,so enjoyed scrumptious chocolate waffles at The Chocolate Works in town on Friday, followed by a canal side walk at East Marten near Skipton with my sister and niece & nephew.

This gravestone at St Peters in East Marten belongs to a lady with the name of Easter.❀️

Smelly Dog.
Yesterday Wil, Hugo and I did a pub walk to The Red Pump Inn in the village of Bashall eaves. Hugo decided to snaffle down quite a few sheep poops. We suffered his stinky trumps all evening. :/

Thanks to Natalie at Threads & Bobbins for devising Sunday Sevens.

Around my town.

Clitheroe Castle.  One of the smallest Castles in the country.

So I thought I would let you see a typical ( ish) saturday wander into town. I live in a small town called Clitheroe in Lancashire. Situated at the foot of Pendle Hill, Clitheroe is probably most famous for its Witchy connections, and was once memorably described by a character in the TV Show Lost as ‘The Arse End Of Nowhere’, so there you have it.lol…………..

Anyway here are a few pictures of our wander into town today. πŸ™‚ We walked into town via the castle grounds. The park is somewhere we have been avoiding just a little bit , as we are no longer dog owners. But it is a beautiful place and it was sad walking through there, but full of good memories too. Sorry for being a big softie these days!

We headed over to a hidden gem, Cheesie Tchaikovsky Cheese Deli which you reach down a ginnel off the main street.

We bought a local blue cheese called Blacksticks Blue and then headed to our local for a quick drink. Wil enjoys Real Ales and there is a great selection here. It is usually full of friendly hounds to pet too……but we saw none today. 😦 Finally we bobbed in to see Wil’s Mum and sat in her conservatory. The sky was blue and it had turned into a nice day. I’m so glad the days are finally getting longer. Cannot believe it is actually March already. Have you been out anywhere in your neighborhood today?
