Glorious Bank Holiday weather

The weather has been glorious - unusual for a Bank Holiday. I am so pleased for all the people who only get to go out on Bank Holidays and weekends. It has been lovely for us but in fairness, we can go out any day. And we have made the most of it too, with outings and enjoying our brand new patio area in the sunshine.


yesterday we went out early and, for a change, visited the next door town of Bournemouth where we rarely venture.

We had a lovely walk through the gardens which looked utterly gorgeous

and the beach of course complete with view back to our home town and the Purbecks and the new beach bars - they didn't have those in our day!

As the beaches were likely to busy today we headed inland and visited Poundbury, which does have the most amazing architecture, and had a picnic in the Dorset countryside

Poor farmers don't get a bank holiday weekend - there were hundred of birds following him enjoying their own Easter treats

Elaine thank you for your lovely comments about Dawn. I cannot believe it is almost 3 years. I miss her so much still. She was an incredible lady and I was blessed to call her a friend. I know that she is playing with Fiki - who she loved to bits - and she was there to welcome him.

Today I am thankful for

  • sunshine
  • picnics
  • days out
  • new love of our back garden
