Five on Friday!

This week I am joining with Amy from Love Made My Home for  Five on Friday time and Maria who is Suburban Mum for Our Favorite Five.



This dinner. I am really busy at the moment in my new job.

I came home quite late on Tuesday to find that Himself had cooked this gorgeous dinner.

Walking through the door I could have cried with gratitude.

The littlest was back from her travels, so we were all able to just down and eat – bliss!!

It is so much better when you haven’t cooked it yourself.

However, he has also shown his hand and revealed skills that I didn’t realise he had ha!



I have spent weeks trying to get a picture of this little blighter!

Jack doesn’t fit the profile of a normal Labrador in that he sometimes leaves food in his bowl.

As soon as he comes back indoors, this Magpie scoots down and makes short work of his dinner.

At first the magpie was really nervous, but now he strolls across the garden with a swagger and lingers for a while!

Jack, the gun dog, doesn’t appear to notice ha!



These flowers were to me by our lovely neighbours, watching them bloom has definitely been a highlight of this week.

They really did not need to gift them , but what a beautiful treat they are!

Such fabulous neighbours! But they are not the only ones, we are so fortunate to be surrounded by them!!



This month has been about getting outdoors as much as possible.

In the North West we have had a chilly start to June with plenty of rain, however it has started to warm up, I have even taken my black tights off!!

I know, I am so radical!




I have a very pale complexion naturally and super white skin, probably a throw back to my Celtic heritage.

In the name of research I have been using both of these products this month at different time to compare.

 I will post my findings soon for those who may be interested.

The upside is that I am ready for when the sun decides to really put his hat on!!




Have a lovely day!

  2. Yay for hubby making dinner! That is the BEST, isn’t it? And it looks so scrumptious too! I loe self-tanner. I have gained enough natural sun on my face and upper body but I am still using self-tanner on my white pasty legs!

  3. Definitely five great things!!! I love that your hubby cooked dinner for you, you are right, it always tastes better when someone else cooks it doesn’t it! What lovely flowers too from your neighbour, they are always a lovely treat aren’t they. Hope that the sun comes out this weekend for you to enjoy your newly getting browned legs! Thank you so much as always for joining in! xx

  4. Lovely lilies! And a funny little magpie (silly gun dog ignoring him!) 🙂 That dinner…wow! How sweet of Himself! I had that happen to me once. After 43 years of marriage my hubby finally made me some scrambled eggs! I say FINALLY! I was pretty mad…they were awfully tasty! He can sure keep a secret a LONG time! 🙂

  5. Definitely an unusual Labrador – usually the food doesn’t touch the sides! You are indeed very fortunate to have good neighbours; I think we underestimate sometimes how important it is to get on with those who live close by! xx

  6. Ooh I keep meaning to buy some of the St Tropez in shower tan, I will wait and see what you think of it! Their normal gradual tan is one of my favourites but it is a little pricey. SO lovely of your hubby to cook your tea, I love to cook but it really is lovely to have someone else do it for a change! xx
