I have been busy sorting and decluttering - I made the mistake of taking out a box of old photographs.......our big day, 25 years ago!

Last weekend we had an expeditions - to Sunderland. It always amazes me how the people from Sunderland do NOT understand us when we speak and vice-versa. I was asked which part of Wales I was from not so long ago!

Saturday our Evening Meal was Swordfish loin - first time I have cooked this but must say it was delicious.

A change from the Moto Guzzi on Sunday - back to the Honda
to the Ridewell event at local Preston Park.

Jon fancies one of these next - a BMW!

Back home Bing continues to grow!

and the hens enjoying a dustbath.

Bev (the black one) is now over a broody period and is now giving us the blue eggs we love.

Mabel has taken to laying her eggs in the wood shavings container inside the henhouse.

My neighbour has a new puppy - Reg (far right - photo position not his political leaning! lol)

As Emma works part time I am the official puppy minder and see the dogs have exercise and Reg eats his meals.



  1. Some great memorable "events" to tell us about! Reg is a real cutie!

  2. Great memories!
    I didn't think Bing could get any bigger..
    And love Mabel's nest!!

  3. Congrats on the anniversary! And Bing IS getting bigger, still!
    Oh, and thanks for the ABC Wednesday intro.

  4. The accidental finding of memories are so sweet.
    Bing is getting so big !
    Reg is a super cutie... especially the second to last photo where his ears are back with the waggie tail.

    cheers, parsnip

  5. Bing is definitely growing but he still has those wonderful ears. Good thing you have a puppy to mind, or you'd really be missing Bing's puppy days.
    Love the wedding photos. Congratulations.
    And enjoy those blue eggs while you can get them.

  6. love the photos you found, and such fun photos, love the new puppy next door! thanks for hosting.

  7. Congrats on 25 yrs! Lovely photos.
    I am intrigued by the different colours of those eggs! All laid by Mabel?????

    Nuts in May

  8. Love that bride and bridegroom!
    We have been married for twenty years next week, so might post a photograph of us.
    I love Mabel's choice of laying place.

  9. Not sure which is the cutest...Bing,Reg or you in your finery!

  10. What fun photos! Especially Mabel's stylish nesting container. :)

  11. Mmmm! The swordfish looks delicious. It is my favorite, but I only get it once in a while -- too expensive. Bing looks like a lively handful, but adorable.

  12. Decluttering and old photos - usually means the decluttering comes to a full stop!!!! Love Reg's freckled nose...

  13. Awwwww indeed.

    Beautiful bride! And beautiful Bing!

    never tasted swordfish. It looks tuna-ish.

  14. I love looking through old photos, but it usually means that everything I'm doing at the time comes to a standstill. Bing is so handsome and Reg is so cute.


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
