The Weekend ......




Doesn't everywhere look wonderful at the moment?

Shopping in my local supermarket this week, I just couldn't resist
all the red, white and blues goodies
So patriotic was I feeling that I bought 10m of plastic bunting!!!
No slaving over hand made bunting for me this time, hehe!
and
(no I didn't buy union jack flags for my car!!!!!!!!!)
but
I bought a pack of 6 (plastic) flags to decorate my
plant pots.

Oh, can you imagine the groans from the rest of my family ....

I smiled at the thought of their horror (oh dear - bad person), as these goodies slipped into my trolley !




I have really enjoyed spending time in my neglected garden this weekend.
My constant companion, my shadow, my faithful friend
has loved every minute too.
Ollie rarely left my side. 
 A total pain when trying to read a book (edited to add
that was me reading the book, not Ollie!) - he would
suddenly (and silently) leap through the air and land on my lap.


Can you see that nose in the middle picture?!
He was very upset that I had left him behind
the gate ...

Anyway, come in -
not much to see at the moment
but this is where I have been relaxing



Look who was keeping an eye on me ...


She is such a big bird and her nest is so tiny
I hope they don't fall out of the nest -
not with a dog running around the garden!

I hope you had a lovely weekend too?

Take care

    Many thanks for this little glimpse into your private space. Love the Jubilee decor!

    1. Hello Amanda.
      It is very exciting in England at the moment. With the lovely weather and Jubilee decorations everywhere it is wonderful. We seem to be happier and smiley again :)
      I so envy you living in such a lovely area of Spain, we really enjoy our holidays there.
      Happy to post you some bunting if you wish to join in the celebrations xx

    2. Thats good of you...but I'll enjoy it quietly watching and reading all what the Uk bloggers have to say...and BBC World is bound to give a good report on what's going on.
      Thanks again

    1. It is a lovely shady spot for relaxing. I try to tolerate as much sun as possible but it's always nice to sit under the tree too.
      Well done for your pass this week - I hope you had a boozy celebration!

    1. He is a rascal really but lovely too!! For the first time in ages I had to have some time off work this week and he has been my constant companion. If I didn't work, I think I would have looked into registering him as a 'Pet for Therapy' - he certainly cheered me up last week xx

  6. Hello Four Happy Bunnies! I feel awful not knowing your name. I hopped across (sorry, no pun intended!) from Claire's blog, and found to my horror that I am in your 'followers' list, and I have never been over to say hello. So sorry, I am always caught unawares when I 'get' a follower that it takes a while for me to realise.

    Anyway, I'm here now to say hello properly and say what a nice blog you have. We love Springer Spaniels, we had our Sam for 14 years - pretty good by doggie standards, hey? And of course, I like to greet other Norfolk bloggers - I said to Cathy (Potter Jotter) there should be some kind of forum we could meet on, or have a get-together somewhere (the beach??) one day. Anyway, following you forthwith! Lx.

    1. Hello Lynne - thank you for coming to visit my blog.
      Sam obviously had a very happy life - what a grand age for a dog to reach. Ollie is 6 years old this year - still full of energy!
      I look forward to keeping in touch xx

  7. Oh yes, my Union Jack bunting is up on my front wall! I might creep up the shops today and see what else I can find to titivate the front of my house. I clearly remember the Silver Jubilee (yes indeed, I am an old fart...) and I lived in the East End of London then and loads of people did up their houses and flats and I feel I should rake up my Cockneyness (it never went far to be honest,) and put my flags out!
    Love your little spot in the garden. I am debating whether to set up camp out in mine later today.
    Happy Sunny Monday!

  12. Love your red, white and blue fonts! I am also loving all the jubilee/olympic nonsense, any excuse to get the bunting out I say! Love the photo of your little idyllic corner in the garden. Sorry to hear it's raining. It's been glorious here today but I think it will be much cooler tomorrow. :-(
