A Serendipitious entry

Thankyou to Emmi for this mornings graphic

Here I am again nearly a , week later .....Maurice is on days now for three .When he came off nights last Wednesday morning ,after a sleep ,we went into Peterborough ,first to Kates ,visiting her reminded me I had taken a picture of Norman ,her life sized sheep she bought with some of her birthday money ,after her fortieth in May ,you remember Martin took her to Derbyshire ,where she fell in love with all the lambs ,you can see Norman from her desk near the  window where she works,at home typing manuscripts for a publishing company ,a nice reminder for her .......

We then went round to Stuart and Vickies house ,,Maurice and Stu'went off to organise the wood ,for some decking they are planning to put into their garden ,Whilst Vickie, Kate and Ilooked at the pictures of the wedding ,they were as you will imagine breathtaking ,really lovely ,of course Im prejudiced ,but what a lovely couple they are ,There were so many pictures I cant choose ,even a number in black and white and also some black and white with just the red of the flowers or dresses or cravats and buttonholes ,can you imagine ? Certainly one I must have ,is one of Charlotte (Stuarts sister and my Grand-daughter )in black and white ,with just her red dress ...standing at the top of the stairs ,I suppose the best way I can describe these pictures are similar to the effects in the film 'Shindlers list' ....anyway in due course I will be showing them to you ,

I am going to get my trolly rolling soon and go to the shops ,and market ,we went to Huntingdon yesterday so dont need too much (famous last words ),Next Wednesday I am going to Skegness on a coach trip with the over sixties ,and then on Friday I have meeting ,With the Residents forum ,did I tell you I was elected secretary of that ?

And so on that happy note I hope you all have a lovely weekend ,with love from ....

Thankyou Donna for my lovely siggy today ,I know she had lots of requests for this one .....its lovely isnt it ?

It does sound as if you have had an enjoyable week and have another nice one to look forward to.  The sheep would be delightful to look at each day.  I'll be looking forward to more pictures and I enjoyed the ones today.  They are a lovely couple, you have every right to be prejudiced.  Enjoy your day shopping !  'On Ya' - ma

It sounds as if you have a very busy week ahead.  Those are lovely pictures of Stuart and Vicki.  Enjoy your trip to Skegness.  Also well done on becoming the secretary of the forum.  I am sure you shall do a grand job!

Hope the sun shines for you while you shop this afternoon.
Have a nice day!

Pic #3 - wow! - somebody is quick on the shutter.  I wish I could take shots like that.  The moment's always passed by the time I get aimed so I can only do things that are standing still.

love the pics and as for the graphics top and bottom ....great minds think alike cos I have them as well, lol. Get 28/6/08 in your diary....a wedding is being held in Cottingham (just outside Corby)!!!! Went shopping myself this morning, first to Matalan....4 ties (for the band), 1 pair of shoes for me and two shirts for Alfie, all for the princely sum of 18.00!!! Not bad eh? I then spent a small fortune on food in Tesco!!!

You and Maurice have a fab weekend.

I love the sheep, it would take a whole flock of real sheep to get the grass under control in our garden after all this rain!
A few years ago I took the children to Lapland to see Santa.  To my gerat surprise Emily asked him for a sheep! I stood behind her shaking my head vigorously and poor Father Christmas was lost for words.

Oh it looks like Stuart and Vickie had a wonderful honeymoon.  I just love the dolphins.  And I can't wait to see the pictures.  I love the black and white with the color.  Hope you are staying dry and safe with all the flooding over there.  We in the midst of our monsoon but not too bad in my neighborhood so far.  Hope you are enjoying  your weekend.  De ;)

Glad you all like Norman! He came from a place called Wittering, near Stamford called Semples. He does however now have a baby which came from Belguim. He should of been 80 quid but he was cracked slightly so was in the sale for 30. BARGAIN. It was lovely to see you the other day Mum, you take care and have a lovely restful day, love you to bits. Kate x x x

irisclyde said...

Not needing much at the shops never seems to work, does it? I usually go in for 'acouple of bits' and come out with a trolleyful. Have fun! Iris xx

cacklinrosie101 said...

Norman is adorable!  LOL..I'd love to look in my garden and see a cute lamb.  I'm betting it's hard to choose the wedding pictures.  Where did Stuart and Vickie go on their honeymoon?  It looks tropical.  Love xx Chris
