Good Morning lovely ladies on this bright sunny September morning.
Hope you have all had a good week.
This week we have celebrated another birthday. Adam or number 3 as he is referred to on here had his twelfth birthday so is now officially a pre-teen and don't we know it.
One of his latest obsessions is the Rugby World Cup but in particular the All Blacks, he has taught himself the Hakka and believe me pulls some very scary faces.
My Thank You goes to Jo at Through the Keyhole I recently entered her 5th anniversary giveaway and was lucky enough to be picked the winner. Her parcel arrived this week with lots of goodies including an extra treat for the four paws which was a lovely thought. I love wind chimes and bees so the wind chime was especially loved, he is going to be put away safely until next spring as it gets a little blowy here at this time of year and having forgot to put my wind chimes away last year they were broken beyond repair so I will be taking extra care with this little one.
As you can see my lovely Giraffe bookmark has already been put to good use.
I am reading two books at the moment Val McDermid's interpretation of Northanger Abbey so far I am loving it but never having read Jane Austen's novel I have nothing to compare it to.
I am also reading my return to childhood read on my kindle and my choice for September is Kenneth Grahame's Wind in the Willows. I love this story as a child and I have fond memories of reading it to my own children.
Elsewhere there are more signs of Autumn with misty mornings and lots of these on the trees as well as the conkers hanging ready to start to drop. The conkers need to hurry up as in our house it appears to be spider season, none of likes them yet they seem to think they have free reign to keeping popping by. Two huge beasties came running across the living room floor just last night.
On the Ta Dah front these three little aran jackets will be off to pastures new. They are going to a friends little granddaughter to keep her warm as the colder weather arrives.
And lastly to those of you who are also on Instagram and have to follow my ramblings on there as well as here, a big thank you as last weekend I hit my first milestone with 50 followers.
Have a lovely week one & all
