Staycation 2017 weeks 3-4 I was going to post each week as a separate post but to honest with you time has run away a little quickly and besides which week 3 was a little mundane so probably wont take very long to catch everyone up!

So week 3 was home after hols which meant the usual mundane of catching up on washing and ironing and cleaning...there were a couple of family birthdays thrown in and also me realising that I couldn't put off decorating the kitchen and downstairs hallway any longer so I went on a paint hunt.

I did pick out some beautiful colour choices...limeade, jelly bean, a touch of silver, bumblebee...and a sort of lavender colour...all bright and glorious ...and not one to the hubbys taste!!

After this I made him go and pick colours...I wasn't overly bothered to be honest...I just wanted to get them he went with soft lime for the kitchen and duck egg blue for the hallway!!

There was also a little bit of allotmenting in there somewhere too!

So week 4 was then of course decorating....and pretty much a lot more decorating...I am so happy that it's done...the colours do look great.....

The kitchen has soft lime walls!!
The 'Duck egg blue' is a bit of a stronger colour
but is a lovely backdrop for my fairy plates and..
Is a lovely backdrop colour for Trojan and Polly's
picture. Thanks Jen, we love it so much!

There was a few other things that happened that week...a bee committee meeting which had a few good outcomes, a bit of time on the allotment (purely to clear my head!) some wonderful walking...oh and Polly had a photo shoot!!!
I am lucky enough to know John Perring of John Perring Photography and he came out walking with us and got some fantastic shots of Polly and I really couldn't be happier with the are just a few of the finished pictures,

Chilling out after the walk! 
 Fun in the straw!
A perfect pose.
I love my ball!!

I kind of picked a random selection from the walk so you can get the idea, I can't say I picked the best shots as I am having serious trouble deciding which ones I should have printed?!?!
John travels quite far to do his photography so if you're looking for a photographer then please bare him in is well worth it!!

So that was week 3 and 4...week 5 will be over as my head hits the pillow tonight so I will be sure to update you on the last week tomorrow...after I finish work of course.

Hope you've all had a great bank holiday!!


  1. Such lovely photos of Polly, I like the first one best, and I like that picture of Trojan and Polly too. That's the problem with photoshoots, you end up wanting to buy all the photos.

    1. I really would love to print them all but I think I am going for the first one Jo...though there are also many more to pick and everyone keeps having different favourites so aren't making my choice and easier!!

  2. The photos of Polly are fantastic

  3. Your kitchen is the same color as mine.

    Polly is a great subject for pictures. Dogs are great.

    1. It is a really nice colour!

      Polly was the perfect subject to photograph and I love that the photographer caught her fun loving personality in them!!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
