glamorous footwear...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and are having a fantastic weekend...well have you got everything sorted for Christmas then?, I bet your all super organised and even have some of your food shopping done...I have a few photos to show you this morning and I will be back later with a card too...I was having a really good practice with my camera and this amazing house is miles away from the farmhouse but with the help of the 28x zoom I got this fantastic close up shot...wouldn't you just love a look into that house and a rummage though the outbuildings

we had a little bit of snow while I was there but it didn't lie for long but it was freezing...because the house is stone built it retains the heat so is like a mini oven when it heats up but when its cold my goodness its freezing...this is the view over one of the garden walls towards the village

this photo is of one of the lanes leading up to the house, now that's what you call a puddle isn't it and it is as deep as it looks...the shadow is me but my hips aren't that bit honestly lol...I had a basket for holly with me...I swear its true

now wow how glamorous is my new footwear, but my jeans were so thick I couldn't get them tucked in so I had a bit of a balloon effect going on with them, mind when I went down the lane I was glad I had these on as I slid into puddles twice

this is some of the holly I cut, there is a huge amount of it, but not one single berry, there are a lot of birds about though so maybe that's the reason, because the walls are solid stone I didn't get one of the pictures up I took with me to hang, every single nail, picture hook and even screws buckled before they were even a teeny bit in, I think I will have to resort to sticky stuff and hope they stay up...so I gave up and when I was stepping down from the chair I misjudged and whacked my hip and upper thigh on the back of the chair, good thing we are detached because they would have heard me swearing but it bloody hurt lol, but I did manage to clean some carpets and rearrange some of the curtains Phil hung (he did a brilliant job but they needed a fluff if you know what I mean)...right I will speak to you all later when I pop back with my card....ohhhh by the way did you see I have candy below, don't be put off by the photo the papers really are lush and I will try and get more photos of all of them so you can see them...bye for now

Mornin' Mina, sounds like you may have a doosy of a bruise later. Great photos. We haven't had any snow yet here in deepest Norfolk but I guess it's on it's way.

Hi Mina. It looks like you are getting to grips with your new camera rightly. What an amazing view you have. Oh and I love the gorgeous wallpaper you have too and that is a BIG basket of holly, though it looks like you are going to have to get out some polystyrene balls and a red marker to make some berries! At least the birds are well fed anyway. Lee x

I think I goofed - for some reason I thought you lived in England. I have never been to Ireland and would dearly love to go. One of my favorite authors is Maeve Binchy. I love everything she writes. Again - Merry Christmas!

Brittany said...

Well perfect boots for the weather, lol... what a lovely bunch of holly!! Shame there are no berries, but after all, the birds need their food, lol! Great photos, very clear, you must have a steady hand and a great camera, none of which i have, well a steady-ish hand maybe, but i need a new camera, lol. Hugs! Brittany, xoxo
