Hello there and hello Friday - I've been looking forward to it this week, I don't mind saying! If you were here last week it was great to see you, and if you're new here this week you're very welcome and it's great to have you along. As usual there were great posts last week, I'm still making my way around them as my newly found love of crocheting still has its hold. I'm certain there'll be equally great posts this week, because that's what you do!
It's been a week of dodging rain though hasn't it? I've seen many posts on Facebook about how it always seems to rain for the school run, it also seems to be timing it to coincide with my walk home. Somehow the skies darken almost at a flick of a switch and you know the rain is coming but there's little you can do about it. Of course the times I've had my umbrella and/or waterproof with me the weather has improved and the times I've left the office without them, I've been caught out.
Our heating has also snuck itself on a couple of mornings this week and I can't say I'm sorry at all. The underfloor heating in the bathroom is one of the best things we've ever done. I love autumn - the colours, the food but not the damp so much. It's hard to believe that this time last year we were experiencing temperatures of thirty four degrees. I remember melting but it seems unbelievable now.
I'm resisting the move into tights. I had a brief foray into that world on Monday but quickly retreated. They are the most awful things and will be avoided for as long as possible. I'm hoping to hold out until we come back from Portugal in mid-October, which I'm counting as my 'summer' holiday!
My photo this week is from my walk home Thursday evening. It had just finished raining and there was a rainbow ahead of me. Walking over the approach road to the Blackwall tunnel I spotted the yellowing leaves of the rowan tree against the moody sky, and couldn't help but be reminded of a country hedgerow. It's far from that but momentarily it could have been!
Bloggers Showcase: Jess from The Queen is in Town
Firstly what a great name for a blog! I'd love to know how that came about - perhaps it's a question we should add! Jess says she's always been blogging for fun and to find people who think the same. She's from Luxembourg and loves make up and books and a good night should include plenty of laughter. I think all the best nights do. Thanks Jess, it's great to showcase your blog as part of #PoCoLo.
If you'd like to be featured in a future bloggers showcase we'd love to feature you. Our waiting list has just dipped into the new year (eek!) but get in touch with your answers now to secure your spot.
