Oh Ducky

Isn't he handsome.
I have no idea if this duck is actually male, but he definitely looks like he's smiling.

We've had a couple of days away this week and since our return we have hardly left our home.

Yesterday we needed to get out and took a very short wander to the local pond. It's somewhere we went to frequently when the children were younger and holds happy memories.

Our time away was spent on the Isle of Wight, just a hop skip and a jump over the water from us.

We spied this cute long legged fellow who was busy cleaning his feathers.
I've been busy too.
My brother-in-law gave me a book for my birthday, Banish Clutter Forever, and I've been been sorting and decluttering. I'm about two thirds of the way through it at the moment and I have found it incredibly useful.

The weather has been all over the place hasn't it and we noticed there was another reminder that summer, or what passed for summer, is on it's way out and autumn is drawing nearer.


  1. Lovely! I've noticed quite a few red/orange/yellow leaves around here this week, some even falling from the trees now! Hope you had a good time on the IoW.

  2. There is a real feeling that Summer is coming to an end. It's always over in a flash!! Hope you are going to show us you IOW photo's xxx

  3. Wonderful photos. Yes, autumn is definitely on the way, such a shame as we don't seem to have had any sort of summer this year. We had a thunder storm yesterday and the local area flooded. Rain again at the moment, where will it end?

  4. Lovely ducks ! I had to smile - does your brother in law think you are very cluttered ?

    Torrential rain here & family staying from Scotland where it has rained all summer x Masses of sloes on the hedgerows - Autumn is coming.

  5. Oh these!!! They are beautiful close-UPS.x

  6. Hi Lisa - I've come across from Jo's blog. Just couldn't resist the lovely photo's of the ducks.

    Lovely post ... we had a few days away last week, sounds as if it may have been in your part of the UK - unfortunately the weather was not too good. See here

    I'm looking forward to some Autumn sunshine in September - I hope.

    All the best Jan

  7. I saw my first red leaf this week, so sad!
