The weekend at last.............

The end of a pretty hectic week, no bears completed but some stitching done. My temp assignment has been a drain this past week and I have been just too tired to do much bear making.
Tomorrow I am off to London for the afternoon to visit (and play with) Victoria. Have decided to put life in the right perspective, time spent with family is so precious and the bears will have to be fitted in the few empty spaces I can find.
Something different this week, Megan was hanging out the washing and looked up to see ..............
one day I would love to take a trip in a hot air balloon, to see the countryside from the air must be amazing.
Our resident hedgehog visits every evening and eats his way through the saucer of food left out for him. Unfortunately as it is dark it is impossible to get a photograph of him and he rolls up in a tight ball if we shine a torch on him! He also sleeps in the dog's outside bed for part of the night.
We had a sad happening in the garden this week. In a previous blog I mentioned that I was concerned that the birds were becoming just a little too tame. Got home from work on Wednesday to discover a pile of feathers on the lawn right next to the bird feeder. It would seem that a sparrow hawk managed to catch one of the birds and had a good feed in the seclusion of our garden. Definitely not a cat as there would have been more remains left behind. It has upset the birds terribly and for several days we have had only a few visitors but they are gradually plucking up the courage to return. The reality of nature is sometimes quite upsetting and hard to understand.
Finally a picture to share, found this on one of the blogs I follow. Have no idea where it is but with my love of fantasy this house is just so beautiful, peaceful and a place to daydream. The practical side to my nature does make me think that it would most probably would be quite different in winter!
Have to complete bears for the show next week so hopefully some pictures next time.
Have a wonderful weekend.........................

It´s always difficult to get time enough isn´t it. You´re so right about the perspective. I have to remind myself about that too.
Have a wonderful weekend Wendy.
