I would like to send a HUGE thank you to Mrs Cobs she is a a wonderfully kind and oh so clever individual ..she will poo poo that idea but don’t listen to her !!! She noticed a little image on my side bar ~ which said ‘Welcome to the cottage’ which she tweaked and polished and then sent me the new & improved image
It now lives proudly on my side bar, where I can coo over it till my hearts content, if that wasn’t enough last week I was thrilled to bits when I saw she was hosting a giveaway, of course I entered pronto, to my immense surprise I WON !!!! now please excuse the quality of the next zillion photos as the Autumn rain has descended on the cottage so the light is rubbish but with out further ado my beautiful card from The Cobweborium Emporium
And the back is just as stunning
Not only that Mrs Cobs even sent me a couple of extra gifts …
To Mrs Cobs I send all my love and thanks …and I’ll think you will agree with the sentiment of paying homage to a beautiful soul who gives from the heart …MRS COBS I SALUTE YOU
I here & now announce I am being dragged kicking & screaming towards a new dawn, it’s not that I don’t like change, it’s just that it seems technology has problem with me
Anyhoo I decided why oh why that I really ought to join the new millennium … (all be it a little late) and now is the time to get down with the kids and buy a smartphone ~ so after chatting to a young boy in the phone shop …not sure if he was actually the assistant or not … but he sounded pretty knowledgeable, so I made my choice , now you will be pleased to know I have wasted the WHOLE day trying to figure how the darn thing works !!!!!!! THEY DON’T EVEN GIVE YOU AN INSTRUCTION GUIDE ANYMORE !!! what’s that about ??? don’t they know how close I am to the edge ?? I’m practically sat on a cliff dangling my feet over the precipice
Just so you are aware it’s because of days like these that this is going to happen
Now I’m sat here wondering just when did I get old…. “Pass the cocoa Beloved & lets turn on the stereo radiogram I’m pretty sure the shipping forecast is on soon”
Beth – crafter, fibre artist- married to Christopher a PI
Janie – seamstress, quilter- married to Gabriel a mathematician
Philip – Local historian, single
Miles – Deals in antiques lives with his retired father
Suzanne – Baker widowed
Anthony – artist recently divorced
Peter – runs the village pub The Golden Lion
Harry & Geraldine run the small post office & village store
When Beth moved to the village little did she know she was entering such a thriving artistic community, and all settled around the village green!
Beth & Christopher’s cottage was a renovation project and as such the couple decided now was a good time for Beth to leave the chaotic world of catering behind have 6 months reprieve so she could take on the majority of the work returning each room back to its bare bones of brickwork.
Within days of Beth moving into her quaint ( yet only just inhabitable) cottage a leaflet was pushed her letterbox announcing the local village garden party was being held at the village hall and it’s enclosed grounds 2 weeks hence.
Beth scribbled the date on her calendar,
When the Saturday of the garden party arrived Beth & Christopher planned to take the afternoon off from turning their abode into what resembled ruins and join in the festivities.
As the sun peeped through the cottage windows Beth became aware of a ruckus outside – raised voices shouting for the landlord next door to wake up and help, it turned out when the chairman had opened the village hall to begin preparations for the day’s events he noticed water cascading through the hall roof putting the hall out of order,
hastily gazebo’s were erected on the village green, all the stall holders moved lock stock and barrel from the hall gardens out onto the green, Peter opened up the pub kitchens where the ‘Village Ladies’ gathered to make sandwiches, Suzanne but a distress call out for scones to mass produced, she had already made muffins, cupcakes and all manner of sweet delicacies as her contribution to the cream tea which was arranged for 3 pm …and this is where Beth entered the fray ….

K9 hardly ever chews the mail …Today obviously being the exception !! was it junk mail ?? OH NO !! was it a flyer for something we won’t ever need OH NO !! it has to be something important doesn’t it !!
Now my quandary is do I just return it …or return it with a note explaining K9 took a fancy to it .. or just write a link to this blog on the envelope so they know exactly what my life is like. I’m sure my long running drama’s with our local postman should be documented somewhere in the postal system, this can now be added to the list🙂
