BUSY DOING NOTHING ..........


February is a funny old month ..... I've always liked it as it's my birthday month but most people don't like it at all. Christmas and New Year are long gone and Spring is still a long way off. 

We haven't done much lately .....



We had all of the trees cut in the garden ...... something we have done every February .....




Had Sunday lunch here last week ..... a lovely old fashioned pub that is packed to bursting for Sunday lunch giving a great atmosphere and they do a really good Sunday roast !!!



..... oh, and, I bought a new car !!! 




We are expecting the above over the next few days ..... that's our street when we last had heavy snow ..... time to hibernate for a while I think and do a few things around the house.

  1. Fabulous car. Funnily enough, only yesterday I was thinking of buying a Cooper for Lady M (second hand, of course). Love that Pub' too.

    1. My car was getting on a bit and I could either run it into the ground or buy another one. I got a good price for mine .... I had an Audi TT and was reluctant to get rid of it but didn’t want another one ( i’ve had two ) the new ones look more like a saloon now .....the mini is far better .,... faster and really fun to drive with loads of modern technology.
      When we were in the pub, I thought of you..... I think it’s your kind of pub ..... still looks the same as when it was built in the Victorian era. They have kept everything which is so unusual nowadays. XXXX

  2. Drive your cute new mini and stay safe dear Jackie! I have a large car (Toyota Avalon) which I'm considering changing next year - too big and I now need more of the safety features on new models. Bob has a Toyota Camry, much newer with so many bells and whistles, and it's fun to drive with its sporty feel.
    Yes, Feb. is a funny month - makes one feel somewhat in limbo, always waiting for something. Hope your birthday celebration was a cheerful break in the often chilly/dreary month. . . . . . and hope your current weather pattern is not dumpling snow and ice on you - much too late in the season to have to deal with all that - unless you're up for snowball fights and such!
    We're off soon on an adventure - today is my 11th blog anniv. - the sun is shining this morning and Spring is gracing the garden with some color at last.
    All is well and we are thankful for so much.
    Hugs - Mary X

    1. I love my new mini Mary ..... wasn't sure what car to get but it's such fun to drive .... puts a smile on your face. It has been snowing all day here but it's a bit wet so it's not too deep. It's very cold though so, time to stay in for a few days !!
      Conrats on 11 years of blogging .... here's to the next eleven and have fun on your adventure .... am looking forward to hearing all about it. XXXX

  3. February, it was gone in the blink of an eye. My daughter-in-law had a tiny bright yellow mini-cooper. She adored it, but had two babies and needs a minivan though she refuses. The pub is beautiful. You should see our equivalents in the states. Bars, dark and dreary. Horrid.

    1. Hi Donna .... first of all, I'm having trouble commenting on your blog ..... blogger does that sometimes .... I don't want you to think that I haven't bothered !!!! Also, I'm so pleased that all went well for you and Ollie.
      Yes, February is nearly over and, although we have snow at the moment, Spring is just around the corner.
      You would love the pub !!! XXXX
