A week full of F's!!

Crikey, it was a week filled up with good times spent with Family and Friends, and of course with my Furry and Feathered ones.I really do not know where the weeks are getting to at the moment but they are full of fun and happiness for me.

Something else starting with F is FOOD and OMG this local Popcorn is divine.  Not the sort of thing you can share easily so best eaten alone in your car while out and about, but remember to get rid of all evidence, that this is what you have done.

Last Saturday TOF and I drove over to Leamington (Cambridge way) to watch Brownie (a friend of the Heirs) rugby game.  The Spare didn't have a game as the opposition threw in the towel and pulled out, must have known they were going to be beaten.  The Spare's team is coming second in their division, this is why we watched another team play and it was a jolly good game, and Brownie appreciated us being their.  We are bloody good FANS!!!

On Sunday my nephew and his girlfriend were over from Whangamata and were good enough to pick up the above Fabulous Find off trade me for me in Waihi en route to Hamilton ($52 total bargain).  When I finally get the spare room back this is going to be the light fitting.  Great to catch up with my nephew as he is always full of fun and good humor, my type of person.

I have worn my multi coloured sari silk knitted snood so much of late, mainly around my neck but sometimes you have to Fark about a bit because a snood has so many possibilities.  Photo 4 will only happen on extremely cold days.

Someone has decided to become a Fence Sitter.

Tuesday was a super awesome day as more Family came over to town, my sister Helen.  She had just bought the Blue Mini and was pimping its wheels to the ones in the bottom photo, snazzy aye!!  Oh and I had to take a selfie in the Mini.  We had a wicked day out and about, cruising in the coolest little car ever.

All my Furry children have been hunkering down inside.  The weather has chilled off even if the sun does appear the air is cooler for sure.  The kittens are fattening up and should be near to moving on from here later this week.

Look at my garden all covered in Fallen leaves.  The colours are definitely more muted these days out the back.  I look forward to something Flowering soon, roll on Spring and then Summer!!!
On Wednesday I decided to Funk shit up and wear my Troll tights.  So  comfy and such a good buy.  I don't buy much new when it comes to clothes but when you can get nice thick leggings that are colourful and fun on a 3 for $30 deal, I had to have a spend.  Perfect with all my Pinkness.

FINALLY Big has been brave enough to join us in the lounge at night and is now enjoying the benefits of the gas heater. He is ok with Oscar but still unsure of Sheba as she is so over excited to see him almost like meeting for the first time everytime!!

Thursday was a day for catching up with Friends.  In the morning I went and visited my good mate Leonie and her daughter, my god daughter.  She is back in NZ for just short of two weeks so it was awesome to have a catch up with her at her in laws place.  I Found the wind chime in the right photo for $5 at Habitat, perfect for the tree out the front of our house and it sounds like church bells.

That afternoon I went and visited Sue W and took photos of a Familiar sight, the old barn that I pass on my way home.

Farm Fence wire and Fading plants.

The Farmland out Sue's way is beautiful rolling land, that is lush green at the moment.  I love breathing in all the good country air on offer.

My garden is Full of Fat Sparrows all just hanging out in the trees down by the Chicken Coup, waiting for leftovers from the girls.  I enjoy listening to them chatter especially late afternoon when they are getting ready to farewell another day.

While I was down the back of the garden Big came along the looking all Fierce like a Tiger.  Rubbing up against things a marking his territory how a Big cat does!!

Friday was cold and dull, look at that moody sky!  I had to drag out and wear a long coat all day.  The annual Field Day Farming thingy was on so of course we had Fog and rain, it is what happens every year when this event is on.  I have never been, which is odd as I am a city Chicken Farmer after all.

Speaking of my Chickens, Saturday was surprisingly pleasant, the sun actually came out and warmed things up for  awhile.  The girls were making the very most of the Friendly weather and the dry ground under foot.

They certainly know how to Faff about!

The only things Flowering out the front are Yellow and Orange, but they are bright happy colours that are a very welcome sight among the greenness. 

Oscar ventured outside but mainly found comfy spots on the deck to relax.

He was on hand to supervise the kittens in their travel cage enjoying a bit of outside time too.  Such cute little balls of fluff they are.

 Sheba just lived in hope someone would turn up to play with her.
FAIL ~ no one arrived.

I saw this plant that I have in my garden For Sale and they had called it the Tractor Seat Plant, Funny!!!

TOF and I went and watched the Heir play Rugby in the afternoon, we are his No. 1 Fans after all.  Another good win was notched up.

How is this for a good use of a tree stump?  So clever are the Folk that carve such cool stuff like this dog that sits outside a Vet Clinic we passed.

Today, Sunday, has been a relaxing type of day.  One to spend outside with my camera. The Walnut trees has lost all of its leaves now, the odd one that has fallen is stuck in the branches.

I found Flowers!

 I found more Fungi!!

Poor old Cassie is looking about Four Hundred at the moment, she must be at least six by now if not older.  I love her Fluffy top knot.

Meet TOF's new Feathered Friends.  "Bert and Ernie".  We went for a drive to collect them this afternoon, now we are waiting for them to start singing!!

Me and my snood found more colour to get next to in the garden, and I noticed that my Daphne Shrub is smothered in buds, I cannot wait for the Fragrant blooms to arrive.

will someone just

Lovely pics of your menagerie Sue...I always like to see the girls and the photo of Big (alongside the nasties) is stunning. The one of his feet and arsehole made me smile! x

Poppy Q said...

Your outfits look lovely this week Sue, perfect weather for layering up and keeping warm. Mr Big looks like he is fitting in well - glad he is enjoying the heater.

Nancy J said...

love your garden, kittens, cats, big ones, new outfits, winter scenes, fluffy hens and more, your words always brighten my day to a brilliant colour. Leamington, I had many school hols at my cousin's home in Cambridge, first in William Street, then Claire Street. The church on the corner that is now pink, and a beautiful gift shop and café, was green many years ago, and my Mum and Dad were married there.

Goody said...

Oooh, cool snood! I love all the different ways you styled it.

Troll tights!!!! I am completely in awe. You find THE BEST stuff.

Hope the canaries sing sweetly for you (I'm living with a budgie that delights in high-pitched shrieking). They're beautiful birds.

You sure know how to have an F'ing good time.

Leeanne said...

Fabulous F week! friendly, flowery, funky, fungasy and of course furry and feathery! Love those tights.......need some please!

Julie said...

Mr Big is just soooo beautiful & photogenic too Sue :-) Your new tights are great & if your new lightshade should go missing ....... it might very well be at my house !!!!!

Vix said...

I thought you'd used one of my photos - that's our chandelier! I've had it years and love it.
Big's looking splendid, the kittens are massive, your garden is fabulous all year round and so are you. x

I love that chandelier twin to Vix's. I once saw one for sale in Selfridges. Unfortunately I was on the bus so didn't go for it. But now I can admire from a distance. I love your photo shoot with snood. You're so pretty! The kittens are adorable!! I don't know how you get anything done having them to play with. Fat sparrows, how wonderful. Xxx

Mim said...

I love the 'rainbow ninja' look (snood view 4) and the troll tights.

It's great to see Big settling down. He's a brave boy, really!

Beth Waltz said...

Mr. Big's routine before the gasfire is a sure cure for insomnia!

What fun you're having with the snood, Sue! (This must be a British name for the garment -- I thought a snood was a sort of hair bag with drawstrings that one tied up in a bow atop the head.)

Lovely nature photographs as always. I love the chandelier and your troll tights are fab! xxx
