Firstly....Today is my birthday so please raise a glass and help me celebrate.
It's my 21st [3rd time round but who's counting?]
These are strange times we are living in but let's not let that stop us celebrating.
I always write my Friday post on a Thursday so I'm sharing a few early birthday presents with you. Shell and family bought me the top left set...I will enjoy the jigsaw over Christmas probably, the new Luna Lapin and friends book is gorgeous and the Monopoly game will be put to good use I'm sure.
My big sister gave me the top right lavender bags [the one in the middle was made from her Wedding Dress] so those are very special plus of course a few pennies to go with them.
The flowers came from our special friends, Ellie and Alan from Scotland. They came in a flat packed box all wrapped up individually 'sleeping'....aren't they gorgeous?
Last Saturday we went with Shell and the twins to watch the Salmon jumping up the weir in Shrewsbury. This happens at this time every year, of course, but it was the first time I had ever been to see it. The power of the water was amazing so you have to really feel for the fish having to jump over to weir to reach their spawning grounds. As you can see in the photos a few actually jumped so high they jumped out on the side but very quickly got themselves back in the water.
Nature is truly amazing.
Pre-lockdown we usually went for a walk at Attingham Park on a Sunday but to go now you have to book a slot to visit and as you never know what the weather is going to be like so we haven't been for probably 7 months. Sunday this week we decided to book up and go and oh how I have missed it. The grounds are all in their Autumn colours now and it was so lovely there. These are a few pics I took to share with you.....we hope to go again soon...weather allowing.
So, that's my shares for you today. Don't forget to raise a glass with me and share a few smiles by linking up below.
