Cricket jumper...



The cricket season is under way... finally I've finished "his" late Christmas present hehe...
It's knitted in a 50% wool 50% cotton mix...
really soft and nice...

MISSED by P G Wodehouse
The sun in the heavens was eaming,
The breeze bore an odour of hay,
My flannels were spotless and gleaming,
My heart was unclouded and gay;
The ladies, all gaily apparelled,
Sat round looking on at the match,
In the tree-tops the dicky-birds carolled,
All was peace - till I bungled that catch.
Happy summer days everyone !

A visit to an old mill....












At the weekend we enjoyed a visit to Gleaston water Mill ...situated in the Lake District peninsula of Furness...It's an imposing water corn mill...the present building dates from 1774.....There's lots of lovely old tools and some impressive wooden gearing dating from the 1700's as well as giant wooden hoppers....Originally the mill would have ground oats and perhaps pulses such as peas and beans....I love visiting places with lots of soul and this certainly had plenty !

Hope you all have a lovely weekend...we have been having crazy weather....one minute bright sunshine...the next it's snowing and hailing....!!

Butter wouldn't melt....

So beautiful....amaryllis...


white muscari just coming out....

 
vintage tin,military hat box ...now used for storing tea lights.....




mmm she looks sweet enough....but....



does she look like the kind of cat that would leave a dead mouse in your slipper ? 
Well .....?
I have to confess on her behalf....!
Who wouldn't squeal when their bare foot encounters a furry gift ....eek ! 

Have a lovely week everyone !

I wandered lonely as a cloud...


















Not really! I actually went for a lovely spring time walk with my sister....first we went to Allan Bank at Grasmere...which is where William Wordsworth once lived...there was a lovely old chapel and the woods surrounding the main house were full of wonderful moss and very elusive red squirrels !  Then we called at Gummer's How where after a steep walk we enjoyed fantastic views of Lake Windermere and the surrounding Lakeland Fells....

Wishing everyone a nice week now that Spring has officially sprung !
