Today we joined the rest of the village at the Annual Remembrance Sunday Service at one of the village churches, followed by the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial. This was the first time in many years that one of the children hasn't paraded with either the cubs, scouts, brownies or guides.
Last weekend Wayne and Christopher drove to Wales to look at a car that Christopher was interested in buying. Today it was delivered. A shiny, white 1972 Triumph Spitfire. Its proud new owner was happy to take us out for a spin in it even if it was rather chilly to have the roof down!
Its been a long time since I found any 'Faces in Places'. I was a big fan of the 'Faces in Places' blog which was a photographic collection of faces found in everyday places, but sadly it doesn't seem to have been updated for quite some time.
Today I spotted a face in our bathroom - the jets on the shower and logo appear as quite a sad looking little face.
Today Christopher drove to Havant in Hampshire for work and tomorrow he has to drive to Cambridge. He was provided with a loan car for the two days and when he arrived home it we were quite surprised to find that it was a Jaguar XE Sports Saloon Car.
Today was Halloween. Lara decided not to go our trick or treating this year but was keen to carve a pumpkin to put outside the house to let the other children know that they were welcome to call at our door. The pumpkin was carefully bought home from Lincolnshire and as the weather was quite warm today and school was closed for an inset day, Lara sat outside on the patio to create her Jack O Lantern.
With a tea light inside it looked lovely outside the door.
