Birds, textiles, horses and a 'welcome home' !;-)

We've had an amazing variety of birds in the garden , just lately!

On Wednesday, I was sitting minding my own business

( Before my dear other half says it...that's rare for me!)

when all of a sudden.... ' thump' .

I thought we would need to buy a new lounge patio window!

There on the step, very stunned was a young....

The highlight of the week!

I kept watch for a while, took a few pics through the glass

then opened the door and off it flew.


This weekend sees me going off to Chipping Sodbury

for yet another of those WONDERFUL events

The Vintage and Handmade Textile Fair.

It suddenly struck me that the last V&H fair was held on the day

of the Grand National (which prompted me to

pen that horsey blog post afterwards!)

Well...this time...guess's Derby day tomorrow!!

I'm not sure if I'll be able to come up with another horse racing blog post though!

But I will return with pics,obviously...of all things textile!


Tonight, after my teaching, I have to go to the railway station

and pick up a traveller!!

I've spent some of the day 'tidying' his plot and generally

making sure that it is 'up to standard!'

Oh..and I've bought him a welcome mat !! ;-)

I can't wait to hear all about his travels around Canada.

Have a great weekend , everyone!!
