Sombre

This week's FM takes on a sombre outlook, courtesy of the Church Lady

Hello all!

I am hosting Fun Monday for May 31st and since here in the states we are observing Memorial Day, the assignment is to post a photo of something patriotic or post a photo honoring a veteran.
Most towns and villages in the UK have War Memorials, which were erected in memory of the fallen. They were set up to remember the sacrifices of the Great War (WWI). Then the lists of names were added of those lost in WWII.

In my home-town the memorial is in the grounds of the Castle (ruined keep).

Debs Fun Monday

Debs of 1crazystitcher says: We all eat it. We all have the kind we like and the kind we dislike. What are some of your favorite foods? Which food do you find disgusting? Have a recipe you want to share?

Been off-line for fortnight so late catching up/joining in. Thank you to Debs for setting our topic this week.
Fave foods? All the stuff that's a moment on the lips but lifetime on your hips, of course...
Just returned from the West Country where Cornish clotted cream comes from. (licks lips)
Yes, I can now buy it at home, but it's too tempting.
Recipe (courtesy of himself) (quick n easy)
Fresh raspberries, Vanilla ice cream and pouring cream layered in a sundae glass. Topped off
with Cointreau.

Another ice-cream fave is Vanilla ice cream, cream with Advocaat.
Yes, I like my ice cream with a drop of something alcoholic but not too much.


The 'yucky' 'disgusting' category has got to be dessicated coconut! Fresh coconut from the shell is delicious, creamed coconut goes well in curry and Thai food.

Other yucky foods include rabbit, frogs legs and things in shells such as whelks and mussels.

No pix or photies today, my cameras have yet to be unpacked.

Happy Fun Monday everyone!

P.S.
Debs now has a new Fun Monday blog

Fun is the theme this week. Toys, games and pass-times. If like me you have pets, and/or children which are their favourite toys? Photos please... Or what are your favourite pass-times?

New to us

Time for a change... It all came together as they say...


Okay the sign might say Bailey, but our new caravan is an Avondale. Four-berth with a proper bedroom (luxury).

View of the front area and seating.

Now we have a full cooker (don't anyone expect full roast dinners tho')

All Avondale's have a drinks cabinet...
View looking towards the rear...
The bedroom and shower room are thro' the doorway.

Below is a view of our old caravan...we've had it for 12 years so it must be 16 years old.

Fun Monday up close

Sayre hosts Fun Monday!
It's a photo challenge - I want to see your pet(s) up close and personal...

When Harry met Lady...

So, let's start a while ago, when Zaq was small and only a few weeks old.


Favourite girlie 'Lady' by name and by nature...



closer, come closer!


Oh am tired...yawn!!!


Just look at me now...all grown up
