I have lots of happy memories from the last week not least our outing to Castleton on Tuesday and our visit to friends in Nottingham on Wednesday but as I've written a post about Castleton and will write one soon about our lunch out at Felley Priory, I've chosen four 'happy' moments from closer to home for week ten. Here's what made me smile this week......
1. Happy cats - I love it when they start cleaning themselves down and then look up forgetting to put their tongue away!
2. Pale Blue Dwarf Iris - in a pot. We rescued them last year after a squirrel had taken all the crocus bulbs we'd planted at the same time, it didn't touch these but we dug them up and popped them in a pot just in case. I'd forgotten all about them but they grew and flowered in their pot this year.
3. Home made Welsh Cakes - made on a cast iron griddle which, after searching loads of kitchen shops, was ordered from the internet. When it arrived it was delivered by the regular post man. He knocked on the door and took it out of his bag 'It's heavy!' he exclaimed. 'It will be, it's cast iron' I replied. The look on his face was priceless, poor chap having to carry it until he reached our house as he didn't have one of those trolley things some postmen have now. Wouldn't you have thought it would have been sent by parcel post with a van driver?
4. Frog Spawn - lots of pond activity this week culminating in eleven frogs spotted at one time and seven clumps of frog spawn, I do hope it survives the colder weather that has been forecast for the next few days.
Link to Little Birdie where '52 weeks of Happy' started. Each week you find just four things that have made you happy to share.
