Sunday Sevens #85 28.5.17

I can’t start Sunday Sevens without mentioning Manchester, I was born and brought up in Greater Manchester and like everyone was shocked and deeply saddened by what happened on Monday night. My thoughts are with all those affected.  I am so proud though, of the way Mancunians have reacted to this atrocity. 

Gibraltar stood in solidarity with those who were affected with a minute’s silence on Friday and flags have been flying at half mast all week.

Now, onto the rest of this week’s Sunday Sevens…

Breakfast al fresco 

On Monday morning I got the chance to do something I haven’t done for a very long time; a breakfast date with Mr Postcard. It was a beautifully sunny morning and we sat outside to enjoy our eggs – it was delicious! 

Back to the drawing board

Now my dress has been completed at my dressmaking class, it means pattern drawing time again. It doesn’t look much like a blouse yet, but who knows where I’ll end up! 

How many boats?

I spied this out in the Bay this week. That’s a heck of a lot of boats having a piggy back on a big boat!


The summery weather we’ve been enjoying this week inspired us to paint some seashells at watercolour class. I really enjoyed painting these. Sometimes you try really hard and make a mess and other times you relax, go with the flow and it just works. 

Summer’s here

The sunny weather meant a trip to the park  one evening. The Little Postcards were full of energy so we went to play an early evening game of football before bed. It was grass stains galore but they had fun. The sun can only mean one thing; it’s almost time to unleash my pasty white knees on the unsuspecting public. Apologies in advance…

I’ve voted!

My postal ballot paper for the U.K. General Election made it over to Gibraltar this week. I was so happy to be able to mark my X in the box of my choice. If you want to have a say in the result, please vote! Women died so that I could have the chance to vote.

  1. Lovely post. I have to say what you write this week strikes chords with me too. So traumatic, Manchester. Voting, I reiterate that – happy to say my 19 year old son is just as keen to vote as I am. It is encouraging to think he, at least, understands how important it is too. On a lighter note, love the boat full of boats, the paintings are amazing, and so is the weather ! (We’ve had sunshine too in Kent, and three BBQs this week, taking advantage of it!)

    1. Thanks so much, and how encouraging that your son feels impelled to vote. Sadly in recent years, young people have come across in the media as feeling disenfranchised and seeing their vote as worthless. Perhaps the shock elections of recent months have reinvigorated the democratic process.

      I do hope your good weather has continued for the bank holiday weekend!


  2. Wonderful photographic snapshot of life in Gibraltar. I think those yachts on the boat belong to “wankers”who keep them moored in marinas but cannot/do not sail them. Just moving from one marina to another for their next “on board” experience. In Australia we use the term wanker to describe useless idiots with little brain space and often too much wealth, e.g. Donald Trump

  3. It is shocking – my hearts go out to all the families concerned.

    I agree with you about voting, it was so hard won I always make sure that I vote.

    It looks as if you had a wonderful week! I love the seashell paintings you are so talented!
