Always feel a little lazy on Saturdays. Despite the cold weather (it's barely got above 1c today) we did get out this morning for a walk. I was surprised at how many people were on the trail. Lots of joggers about. It was cold, but the sun was finally shining so maybe that brought people out.

Saturday is Skype day for Mum and I. It looked bright and sunny where she was - neither one of us had to have lights on today! She said she'd actually gone to Felixstowe yesterday. It was windy and cold she said but made for a nice change. They have some really good charity shops there and Mum said she found three books for a pound. I know where I get my love of reading from!

This afternoon I stitched for a little. I'm not sure I like the kit too much. There are lots of partial stitches and lots of using one strand of this and one strand of that. I will keep up with it as I like the design - it's one of the John Clayton ladies. After this one I'm going to stitch something for one of my sisters. I'll take it with me when I go.

I had to laugh at these fellows today. The bottom one kept trying to get up the pole and on this photo he's actually sliding down it fireman style - so funny to watch! The top one made me laugh out loud. He was trying to figure out how to get the food. 

Bless, I think you were right about the raccoons. I have started bringing the feeders in at night. The birds are waiting out there when I get up in the morning lol. 


  1. I don't like half or quarter stitches either - far too fiddly for me!

  2. Love the squirrel pictures! (I love squirrels.) You have to give them credit for trying!

  3. Oh those squirrels are just so funny. I was sat watching one at the farm shop on Friday. I love them.


  4. I am always amazed when I see just how far a squirrel will stretch for my suet cakes...they don't give up.
