Welcome to the weekend
Basket at the ready, eh up there’s something missing.
No not the wandering welder, he’s getting the car out ready
for the off.
It’s a brooch. A girl has to have a brooch or one is quite
underdressed haha. Certainly not underfed from this angle.
So off we set, over the moors to visit our favourite market town,
Todmorden in Yorkshire. A twenty minute picturesque drive
from our house in Whitworth, Lancashire.
Today felt like Saturdays used to feel before covid. Relaxed.
The sun was out, the market stalls were full and we
came home with lots of treats and essentials.
Flowers from Petals & Patina, on the inside market, for the
jug I recently bought from THE LINEN GARDEN
Its an early birthday present for me from me. I’m spending
my pension money already.
PICTURE SUNDAY IF YOU WILL
A walk across the moor to post a birthday card.
Flowers and grasses gathered on the way back.
Time to stop and stare.
Back home there’s flowers to be pressed between the pages
of an old sales ledger
Some to put on my desk for inspiration.
and the rest outside where I can investigate their origins further
in the Flowers Show To The Children book from the early 1900’s.
Our local art gallery Touchstones have mounted their
newest exhibition - Grayson Perry’s tapestries.
So I’m sorting a date for us to go.
Job done and it’s time for tea. French onion savoury
tart with salad and chutney for the wondering welder and a salmon
and asparagus one for me. Bought fresh on Todmorden market yesterday.
Tonight we will be watching the new thriller series Baptiste on BBC1
then trying our best not to binge watch further episodes on IPlayer.
I hope your weekend has been a luvverly one
and whatever the new week brings, make it a good ‘un.
