No Downton Abbey this weekend and I'm lost!
Time for a quick blog about our weekend.
Of course it included this;
Thank you to everyone who bought poppies - I was able to add £28 to the Poppy Collection :)
Christmas Cake prep - just love the smell
The fruit soon soaked up all the fruit juice & brandy.
Watching rugby whilst crocheting and drinking cranberry juice - I've not been well this weekend - I think a trip to the Docs is in order tomorrow :(
The devastation in the kitchen once the cake had been mixed - whilst there was a mess I thought I'd strain the Hedgerow Gin too - almost a litre of the stuff - I've hidden it till Christmas Eve.
Part of the band on the march back from Church this morning. The veterans were pleased that the youngest cornet players played the last post. They are always pleased to see the young members of our band on parade.
As it was sunny today, it was perfect for the 8th week of Autumn Views photos;
The blackbird enjoyed a quick splash just after I'd taken this picture.
The leaves on the birch that remain are all a lovely golden colour.
These 3 trees have almost lost all their leaves now.
The cherry leaves have all changed colour now too and are falling off rather too quickly.
I hope whatever you did this weekend you had a good one? I've had a quick scan of blogland and seen many pictures from parades today.
See you soon
