I love sharing my weekly news with you in the form of a Sunday Sevens. 🙂 Thanks to Natalie at Threads and bobbins for creating the series.
Waking the dog:
I’ve been meaning to share with you all, the most recent walks we’ve had with Riley. David and I have taken Riley to a picnic at Festival Gardens, walked around Calderstones Park and got muddy at Sefton Park! 😀

I’ve done it! I’m a Proclaimer! I reached 500 miles today on Formby Beach with David and Riley! This week my mileage has been 30 miles. My annual total to date is 502 miles!
Classic FM: Hall of Fame:
Classic FM Hall of Fame 2018
Easter weekend was all about the Classic FM, Hall of Fame. The Lark Ascending by Vaughn Williams was deposed by the explosive Tchaikovsky’s, 1812 Overture. The result was quite a shocker! The pieces of music I voted for reached:
1. Massenet’s Thais’ Meditation reached: 150, down 2.
2. Elgar’s Enigma Variations reached: 5, down 1.
3. Rachmaninov’s, 2nd Symphony reached 35: down 6.
This weekend, David has been busy making a cake. He used 10 eggs in total. He took over half an hour making Swiss Meringue Buttercream. The result was a very rich chocolate sponge cake with buttercream and white chocolate ganache.
Supporting Local Businesses:
I don’t know how I came to follow TileProductions on Instagram.
This Clitheroe based, family run business produces bespoke wall and floor tiles and have recently decided to create products from their waste materials.
They create mugs and jewelry. When I saw their ceramic bee broaches I just had to have one!

And finally, I spent some time in the yarden this Sunday, planting Maris Peer chits and scattering wildflower seeds. I’ll end this post with some pictures of the yarden. With the arrival of British Summer Time, the plants have all begun to wake up. Here’s pictures of the spectacular rhododendron and delicate magnolia which have recently flowered. What plants are awakening in your gardens?
That was my week, how was yours?
