Hurrah! It’s the first Sunday Sevens of the year! I had fun collecting seven pictures from my week, which began with a walk with Riley to the local park. He was sporting his new jacket. I thought he looked very fetching! 🙂
I am determined to make 2019 the year I hit 2000 miles in the #walk1000miles challenge. So far this month I have walked 171 miles. If you are competing in the challenge, how are you doing?
Voting for this years Classic FM Hall of Fame has opened. I chose three pieces of music which make me stop and reflect.
My choices were:
Which pieces of classical music would you vote for?
Sunday, David and I attended a concert of Mahler’s triumphant 5th Symphony at the Liverpool Philharmonic. It was one of the best performances of the symphony I had heard!
This week I managed to complete my 2018 collection of Beatrix Potter 50ps. My latest find was Peter Rabbit munching on carrots! All I need now to complete three years worth of 50ps is the most rare one, Jemima Puddle-Duck.
Have you found any collectible 50ps in your change?
David bought an exercise machine to add to our well equipped gym. In his work’s shop he spied a Maxi Climber. It was a good purchase at only £20! It retails for over £100! I’ve only had a 10 minute session on the machine but my limbs ache!
Book I’m Reading:
I am reading the second of Minette Walter’s medieval novels, The Turn of Midnight. Even though I didn’t rate the first book much, I decided to give the second installment a go.
What books are you reading at present?
RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch:
This weekend is the much anticipated RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. I did my count on a blustery Sunday during lunch-time. Thankfully the birds put on a good show. I had five species frequent the feeders, mostly the usual visitors! My count was as follows:
- Seven starlings
- One blue tit
- 15 goldfinches
- 23 pigeons
- One robin
What species of bird have you seen in your garden?
That was my week, how was yours?
Thanks for reading,
Thanks to Natalie at Threads and bobbins for devising the series.
