It's been one of those weeks where you never know what is around the next corner. I've been all happy as I have a week off work with lots of catching up to do with the autumn transformation in the house and a second visit to the Beamish Museum coming up (next post will be a bit picture heavy once again). However what I wasn't planning was on my lovely hubby having a bit of a health scare on Thursday evening. I will quickly say all is well, but those brief sickening moments on deciding whether to call for an ambulance were particularly hard. They were called, came very quickly and spent an hour with him checking all sorts. After the hour his vital signs were all normal and he had picked up again. More tests next week, but for now he is taking it easy. For a rural area we are particularly lucky to have an ambulance station so near - wonderful people. But, this is a positive blog, and you don't need me rambling on about health scares! and as my hubby reads this, he doesn't want to read doom and gloom! So, this week is just an itsy bitsy post with a bit of sunshine in the form of flowers.
Our living room will be our retreat this weekend with the pumpkins on display and the gradual appearance of more autumnal colours to warm the home.
Next week is going to be a busy one, along with taking hubby to the hospital, there will be the trip to Durham to the Beamish Museum for part 2 of our trip around there, Burghley House to see their Autumn colours, work on my Grandad's book and hopefully some time putting some beautiful papers on the walls of the Curiosity Shop. My blog reading has also been a little out of kilter this week, so will be catching up with what you have been doing too. Life occasionally blows in different directions, this week we feel like a weather vane being blown from a good wind to a bad one.
Normal service will be resumed I promise next week, but as I hope you will understand, my mind is a little all over the place at the moment. Thank you for sticking with me, it's funny how typing things out and looking at the shots that will be put on the blog concentrates the mind. Bless you all for reading.
