Sam popped in to see us last night, he loved his costume
posing at every point, we filled him with sugary sweets
and then sent him home.
1st of November, we woke up to a misty morning,
the spider webs were glistening in the morning light
no sunshine to start the day, but a lovely way to see into the garden
Yesterday at B&Q, I brought this home with me, plus
loads of Pansies and Violas which cost just 50p or £1, all still growing
plus some Primroses, which I love,
the sale plants were waterlogged, so they are in my greenhouse
once they dry out a bit I will plant them.
I did not get my sewing machine out as planned yesterday, we went to see Win, who is improving each time I see her, we stayed for a couple of hours, nice time to sit and chat. Last night I had a glass of wine, so no stitching, I watched X Factor, not a program I enjoy any more, but it was the first of the live show's, I did feel some of the contestants had wonderful voices, but the hype around the judges gets on my nerves.
This morning Su and I went to a Wedding Fayre, nothing there she required, so we had a coffee at our local Garson's garden center on the way home, we walked around their Christmas shop, I got these for our tree.
Su will have her Wedding menu's sorted and on Wednesday she is coming here, so we can set the invitations and I can complete them ready for sending. I can then start my Christmas cards.
I have also found a couple small Christmas designs for me to stitch, I enjoy the bright colours this time of year.
Later Downton Abbey is on TV, did anyone see Maggie Smith on Graham Norton's show Friday night, she was so funny, she does not normally do interviews, but her new film The lady in the van, looks good.
