This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...


Day-tripping - to Salisbury, somewhere that's really not that far away (about an hour) but we just don't seem to visit it. Andrew wanted to spend his weekend painting and polishing his lorry (ready for Selwood Steam Rally in Wiltshire the following weekend) and we had a bit of spare leave from work so we had a day out and strolled around.

Knitting - a little something for a really good (elephant-loving) friend who's going through a bit of a challenging time at the moment. Hopefully it'll bring her some much needed luck over the next few weeks.

Wrapping - up a little gift for my cousin who had a gorgeous baby girl a few weeks ago. We didn't want to get anything that would be too much like clutter so we picked a blanket and some dribble bibs plus a £10 Boots voucher (which could be used for baby or parent) and also three bars of Galaxy as a 'well done' present for the worn-out mum!

Realising - that I've well and truly stuffed up Blog Every Day in May this year round. It's been a bit busy over the last couple of weeks and I've been knackered - ah well, there's always next year!


What did you get up to at the weekend?

  1. I was sad you didn't get to do BEDM- next year of course! BEDN was where I first discovered and followed your blog!
    Salisbury is lovely- I played at the Cathedral before.x

  2. I couldn't commit to BEDM either :( Hopefully Novemeber's will happen! I love Salisbury, some friends got married there last year and it was just so pretty, I'd love to go back x

  3. I can never commit to a blog every day thing... I just can't. I get too bored!
    I wish I had a friend to knit me such a cute elephant!

  4. Hi Louisa, are you still looking for a DUCK TEAPOT as I have the exact one that is in the picture. I do barn clearances and in one of the boxes wrapped in tissue paper was the teapot, not seen the light of day for many years. PERFECT condition, no chips, cracks, glazing with a perfect lid as well. Have a shop in Totnes Devon, but happy to post. £20.00 plus postage. Maggie Cornhill redhouse gifts maggie@redhousegifts.co.uk

  9. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
