It's Good to See Great Granny back

When one of our blogging friends is absent for a while we all tend to wonder where they are 
So it was so good to see one of my Blogging friend return. 

Wow it's  almost August , looking back to July . 
I visited my older sister, met up with a dear friend after 12 years. 
The heatwave here has been lovely, it's all set to change this weekend. Welcoming some much needed rain. 

The garden is doing fine, I love these blooms . Seems they have mingled  in together giving a lovely display. 

I received a lovely letter long I might say from my friend. Pen to paper can't beat it as it's popped through the Letter Box.  Landing on the mat gives a little cheer to ones heart. 

Plenty of Wildlife here to ...Bunnies , Woodpecker's , and a mass of Sparrow's , Doves, Wood Pigeon's,.
Wouldn't it  be Wonderful if the World was as peaceful as they all are. The Joy and tranquil they bring .

Enjoy your Weekend . Take Care .

Just the three of us...

meeting up for lunch on a fine and sunny day. Well that was Monday , remember my two best ladies friends  in their 80's and 90's. The two of them hadn't seen each other for a while , so there was a lot of cross talking . Looking left then right wondering if they could possibly each get a word in edge ways. ( Giggle) We had a frothy  Coffee to start in our favourite Coffee bar. This little place opened a year ago and has really taken off.
Shopping before our bite of lunch , so off we went. The Cobbles were not the best place to take a stroll especially if you are a senior , with a slight wobble. Holding gently onto each of them attracted a smile or two from strangers I must say. But once on the flat surface the shopping took hold . It's lovely to see the Charity shops so busy. A few purchases and off we went to the next store.( Charity shop that is ) 
Lunch in our local Deli was very tasty, just a light lunch , and a nice cup of tea served up in a China Cup and saucer. 
Every day this week the Song Thrush has been belting out a Beautiful Song high in the Tree tops. 
I am just hoping this is a good sign, and we are all going to enjoy a long hot Summer. 
Spring only three weeks away brings a smile .
Sitting in the garden or up by my pond , feeding the Ducks and watching the Dragon Fly humming by mmm. 
With a glass of Lemonade (homemade) sitting in the Deckchair. 

What a Wonderful thought.

Bye for Now and Happy thoughts 
Enjoy your Week.

Little Louis

He is a fine chap my little Budgie chat chat all day long . 
What makes me laugh is why is he so interested in what I am eating , glaring down at my plate as I PASS HIM BY. Then he starts to eat his seed from the tray. Bright as a spark happy my sister brought him to me when his owner no longer wanted him.
Three Cheers I'd say..

Small talk .

A story To tell....
I was remembering way back in the  mid 70's when I came across little Beauty.
 I was visiting my Mum , as at the time I was living in London. I used to regularly catch the train from Kings Cross to Newcastle. Which was a three and a half hour Journey.
My brother informed me that they had a few days ago came across a lost and very sad looking Yorkshire Terrier.  She had been dumped by all accounts , and looking in very bad condition.
Her toe nails were so long they circled round and round , and her fur was so matted it was all lumpy. Her teeth were poor and what with bad breath , it was apparent she had been  neglected and had been for an awful long time.
 My heart sank and a plan popped into my head, I would take her back to London.
All ready and packed I popped her into my large duffel bag, and she didn't seem to mind. After a few days with her with cuddles I think she put her trust in me.
Boarding the train I think I felt like a criminal smuggling her on board.
The carriages were full at six people per carriage.
It was a relief to reach my destination with no hold-ups.
I Called her Beauty .
The Vet trimmed her fur cut her nails and cleaned her teeth. He informed me she must at least be well over 10years old plus...
Well after a few days of settling in , I took her up on the Common . It's a day I will never forget... The look on her little fluffy face was pure joy. She ran with me the breeze blowing in her little face. It had all been worth while to see her this happy.
It was  worth to me  more than a million dollars.
Her time with me was Joyous and a very contented little Yorkshire Terrier , she lived up to her name little Beauty.

Hello Mum

Well it's been a great day here sunny blue skies , to good to be true really. We enjoyed a lovely walk along the country lane ... But we just got home in time , the Heavens opened and down came the Hail Stone . Phew!!   

Not long now it it will be Easter , quite early this year . There are certainly signs of it here, Daffodils have appeared blowing in the breeze. So at the moment we are back with wet weather again , and a muddy garden. Still that is what happens this time of year , at least it isn't bitter cold. 

Have a great Weekend

Lucy little Tinker

My  slipper's have gone missing so I thought, well what do you know Lucy has ran off with them.:) She has livened up no end , I think maybe she's only 2 years old not 4 years. Unless she is so happy and relaxed now , she hasn't a care in the World. Can't wait for better weather so we can (or she can) have a run on the Beach.

My past two greyhound 's were older by three or four years, than Lucy. So it 's just like having a pup , it did take me by surprise actually. A lot of fun and sure keeps me on my toes. The house is now a untidy one (laughs!! ) She sure is a live wire..
