Port Wrinkle is a place name.
I'm sure it looks more inviting during the Summer months..
Even the small boats in the harbour were out of the water, tucked away for the Winter.
We have been up to other things than walking Freya along the coast this week.
The cottage is having a wall repaired.
A Cob specialist has been hard at work for weeks. Horse hair and lime plaster for the first coat, then a long wait until the second coat was applied. We are on the third coat now and have to wait at least fourteen days for it to dry before a final coat of lime wash will be applied. Living in such a beautiful old cottage has it's advantages, sometimes it's disadvantages as cob cottages have to be looked after properly, using the right tools and building materials. The dry weather isn't going to last for fourteen days, the wall will be fine even when it rains..... although we will feel happier when the final coat of lime wash goes on.
Mr weatherman forecasts rain tomorrow.
At least the wall is almost finished, this is when it was stripped back a few weeks ago.
The sound of knitting needles clicking away can be heard during the evening. A sure sign that cold weather is around again.
This little flower is an easy make to decorate a dainty cardy. I know not everyone knits, but this is beginners stuff, I can't go wrong.
A pair of gloves.
You know the kind that are half gloves.
Then turn out to be mitts after all.
We had to say bye bye to an old friend this week. Not to Freya but to our camera. It's still working, it hasn't gone to the great camera shop in the sky, It doesn't pick up views and distance very well, so we have upgraded to a higher pixel camera.All the photo's you have ever seen on Soggibottom's blog have been from a small pink 10.5 pixel camera. Happy snap stuff. Happy snap stuff is fine by us. There is a mix of old and new camera photo's on this post, wonder if you can tell which one's were taken with our old camera?....
The new camera has a quicker shutter speed, good enough to show you Freya's teeth which are rounding off nicely. She's not picking up everything she comes across as she used to.Visitors are now leaving the cottage with the same amount of fingers that they came in with.
She will however have a good chew at some things when in a playful mood...
NO ONE TOUCHES Frank's tail,
not even Freya.
Freya is now five months old. Doesn't time go fast when your having fun ?
Freya as usual can be found on her own blog CATFLAP CAVALIER
Best not to tell her the tide is coming in.....
