The pumpkins got carved πŸ˜€



but not the 🍎 🍎 at the front Fairy 


Just listened to the Archers too  and looking forward to Bake-off (turned off Twitter once I knew there had been a leak).


Glad your garden and its visitors made you smile Pdoc.  


Hope LilyP has a good few days away, and that Bilbao exploring has been fun πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

This year’s festive offering πŸŽƒ


Sending positive vibes to Pdoc for a full recovery ......in the meantime, there’s another fan of pilates and mindfulness here - quick burst of headspace in the morning sets a good tone for the rest of the day.


Lovely flowers Pat .....hating the time difference here too - very difficult to find a good time to catch up with Chicklet.


Have a great time in Bilbao Obxx and Possum - (only ever been to the airport on the way to Pamplona)......sounds like some fun exploring to be done

Morning ~ lovely day yesterday.  Ran out of time wandering round Notting Hill (Portabello Road just couldn’t be rushed ) ,,,so we’ll have to go back amd do it all again sometime soon.  Roof gardens were nice, but would have preferred them without all the fake halloween accompaniments - cobwebs and shrouds draped over everything ready for a party later .  Went for a mooch around Wholefoods SM and queued to pay behind James Wong .  And a wonderful dinner watching the sun set over the rooves of London .


Sending many many ((hugs)) for Pdoc

Morning all - feeling for Mr Liri, he deserves a fry up tonight 


Sad about the end of GW......but loved seeing the snowdrops .....Mr C and I went there this spring, and it was spectacular.  Its also currently home to the bake off tent ⛺️ 


Up earlyish (for a Saturday) as mane taming at 10.  Then Mr C is taking me to the Kensington Roof Gardens this afternoon,  “hidden” walk round Notting Hill and then a meal tonight .....all part of my birthday pressie from last week πŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ‘ΈπŸΌπŸ‘ΈπŸΌ

Morning 


Alas and alack, no porridge  We’ve run out of milk 


Luckily there is just enough for a cuppa, which slightly mitigates the crisis scenario

Oh Dacha, that made me smile   Although not sure I’d fancy sharing my boat with a bear .....did anyone read Life of Pi?  Great book (never saw the film, but the book was excellent).  Going to make my upcoming dose of Autumnwatch seem quite tame .....but I do love learning about the wildlife that is all around us here.  Delighted to see the hedgehog/ badger encounter last night, made me hopeful for hogs here one day after all - there are loads of untidy woodpiles just waiting for them to move in 🏑🏑🏑
