Some Sunday Loveliness

The weather here is not right for June, not at all…what is with all the rain?!

Anyway, seeing as it’s ‘nice weather for ducks’ I thought I would go with a duck-theme for today’s loveliness…enjoy!

First of all…a duck  on a duck…

*Quack!*

Next we have The Fat Duck

…the three Michelin star restaurant where Heston Blumenthal

…carries out his crazy food experiments.

I’d love to go there but it’s about £160 per person! Eep!

How about a glow in the dark rubber ducky instead?

*click picture for link to buy*

He costs £1.25 from Toyday and they do have lots of different duckies as well!

I’ve never had a rubber duck as far as I can remember…I might get me one!

This next one is for my dad seeing as it’s Fathers’ Day!

“I could dance with you till the cows come home. On second thought, I’d rather dance with the cows till you came home.”

Duck Soup starring the Marx Brothers…just for you, Daddy!

I love this next one…

How cute is that?! Knitted duck feet for babies…I wonder if I could make them for dog…hmm…

This is a free pattern by Margaret Zellner and if you click the picture above it will take you to the Ravelry page for it.

How about duck-shaped cookies?

This cute little cookie was made for a baby shower…but I’m sure it would do just as well at a duck-themed party 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the ducks!

Lots of Love,

My lovely weekend

I went to visit my boy on the weekend and, as usual, we had a lovely time so I thought I’d show you a few photos of the loveliness that we went and looked at.

Thats the Cathedral…we didn’t go there this time but you can see it from everywhere. And here’s a duck…

I do like ducks 🙂 There were lots of them quacking around. Isn’t the water lovely and clear too? I wanted to jump in but wasn’t allowed.

This little guy is a coot (yes, he really is…not a moorhen…I’ve looked him up!). I was very impressed by the size of his feet. He’s only a baby and had a sweet little chirp. He kept trying to eat all kinds of bits of twigs and weeds from the river.

happy, happy sheep

Well now, look at those guys 🙂 We saw a lot of sheep. Unfortunatly, the llama was hiding on that day. I was satisfied with seeing the sheep though…they do make me chuckle.

oh, please let me jump in!

oh, please let me jump in!

The river is pretty…as I wasn’t allowed to jump in I looked out for fish instead, there were lots!

It was a beautiful sunny day as well which just helped with the loveliness 🙂 Talking to ducks and giggling at sheep is one of my favourite ways to spend a Sunday.
