The Great Escape
First of all I would like to say a huge thank you to Amy over at http://lovemademyhome.blogspot.co.uk. She ran a give away and my name was picked out of the hat. I am chuffed to bits, I love surprises. I will show you when the surprise box arrives.
So on to 'The Great Escape'. I broke out of the house today, O.K. so I'm no Steve McQueen, and I wasn't on a motorbike. It will be four weeks tomorrow since the operation and I was told once I felt able to do an emergency stop then I would be o.k. to drive. So off I went in my car, where did I choose to go? I went to a fabric shop :) I'm sure fellow fabric obsessed crafters out there will understand. The driving was actually easier than the walking, I could have sworn I saw a tortoise overtake me as I walked to the shop. I thought I was doing brilliantly until I handed over my Tesco club card to pay for the fabric! Still not as sharp as I should be lol
I was on a roll so decided to drive to the park and walk around the duck pond. It was a beautiful sunny day and so peaceful. I walked slowly and took advantage of all the seats. I loved every minute of it.
It is a very pretty little park with lots of interesting plants and some very old trees. The gardeners have certainly done a good job. It is not too formal, with wild areas and plenty to attract wildlife.
Beautiful Autumnal colours
Look at those feet
Beautiful flashes of turquoise
Just need to have a dig under there
A little dash of purple among beautiful greys and black.
I love seeing the ducks, I don't think they thought much of me as I didn't bring any food for them. We brought our children here when they were little, we now take our grandchildren to feed the ducks. Where did the time go?
There was a lot of preening by the ducks, and who can blame them for showing off their beautiful feathers. Just look at those colours.
After the fiasco of the Tesco 'security' panic over my online account yesterday morning. I received a phone call this morning from someone explaining that they have discovered that every time I go on to Windows, someone is downloading a virus to my computer, but don't worry as they can sort it out for me. Wait.......What???? What a lying little ***** I don't even have Windows! I am really annoyed as I'm sure there will be people who believe their scam and get into all sorts of trouble.
Julee will be glad to hear my cat had a lovely peaceful few hours without me pestering her :)
