Stress upon stress

On Tuesday Night a neighbour knocked and pointed out that our roof was not looking good. We had a look, what we saw was shocking.

4 paving slabs had slipped and were hanging on by a inch! We contacted the police as its was a hazzard, but they did not want to know. They just told me I needed a very long ladder and a builder. So we blocked the area with bins and cones. So fingers crossed nobody would walk under it. The house opens straight onto the path and is a town house so very high, not good. The next day hubby contacted the NHBC as the house is only 7 years old and should be covered. They could not come out until the 17th Aug to access. So next door contacted Wimpy the company that built the house. They could not have been more fantastic. Within less than a day they had put up a tower and re-attached the slabs. They are now bolted on and fingers crossed will not slip again. Maybe time to put the house up for sale????

Lazy Monday

On Monday my friend and I went to Grantchester for a walk alone the medows and a tea and scone in the Orchard Tea Garden.

We walked for miles along the Cam.
Then we stopped for a lazy afternoon of chat and eating!
This little fellow had his eye on my scone!
We are going to do the same this Monday if the weather is good. So think of me sunning myself in the orchard :)

Ive used the sewing machine!!!

This week I had a go with the sewing machine. Ive not used one in 15 years! I managed to remember how to get it working and made this.....

I made lots of mistakes but not bad for a 1st go. What do you all think? Please be kind!!
