Hello there, just popping in for a quick one this week. It’s been a bit of a non-event as far as nice pictures are concerned. Mix moving house with Tier 3 restrictions and it leaves you a bit stumped for interesting things going on!
I do hope you have had a good week wherever you are and however the latest restrictions are affecting you. It’s a funny old time we’re living through isn’t it?
Here’s a very brief Sunday Postcard….
A walk through the leaves 🍁
Last Sunday, before we went into Tier 3 and were still allowed to cross over into rural Cheshire from suburban Manchester, we headed out for an autumnal walk. As you can see, we didn’t come into contact with many people, and those we did see were from a distance! I do love this part of the world so much. I used to dream of living here once upon a time, but although I would love it, I’m not sure the Little Postcards would appreciate the lack of people and amenities!!
Autumn colour on the school run
There is a stunningly bright red Japanese Maple in a garden on our walking route to school. We have watched as the leaves have changed from dark red to crimson before falling to the pavement and mixing with the yellow leaves from a nearby tree out on the road. Every morning as we pass it, I think ‘I really should take a photo of that before it disappears’ but we always seem to be in a bit of a rush! I never seem to walk home along the same route so keep forgetting to snap a photo of it. On Friday, we managed to return along the same route that we head out in the morning and I took this photo.
It’s just as well we did that as schools here broke up for half term on Friday and as we are moving house next week we won’t automatically be passing that tree. I think I may need to make an occasional detour to see it next Autumn.
There’s a lot of fungi at the moment in this neck of the woods. This clump is in our rental front garden, and they have cousins growing out of garden walls and pavements along our road too! No idea what they are mind. Possibly deadly poisonous… I won’t be going near them!
This week, my lovely Dad and I have done away with the paint brushes and rollers of the last few weeks and switched our tool of choice to the Allen key & screwdriver! The house is taking shape slowly!
There’s not much spare time at the moment for fun things like crochet with our impending move. But I have managed to almost complete Part 1 of the Crochet Sanctuary Christmas Blanket CAL. It does require quite a bit of counting and concentration so there have been a few rows which have needed unraveling and starting again with more focus…
That’s all I have to offer this week. Next week is our big move so I can’t imagine next week’s photos will be up to much. If I escape the unpacking long enough, I’ll be back again next week!!
I hope you have a good week, until next time, bye for now!
