Birthdays and Horses' Shoes

It's been our birthday week!
Mine on Monday and Chris' on Wednesday.
We've taken the week to just relax and do some of things we love doing :)
Lunching out, cinema (the new James Bond movie), walking with Spencer, a spot of shopping.....
And now we've started decorating the hallway!
I've just finished the second coat of paint on the ceiling whilst Chris has been preparing the walls for painting tomorrow.
If it turns out as planned, I will share some photos with you soon!
Earlier in the week (and I know this is a bit random), I looked out of the window to see the farrier attending to our neighbour's horses' shoes.
It's things like this that make me love where we live!

  1. Happy birthday, Maggie -- and to Chris too. My birthday is next week. All the best people must be born in November! lol

  2. What beautiful photos! And Happy Birthday. My new granddaughter was born this morning!!! Did I ever tell you that my daughter's name is Maggie?

  3. Oh you guys! Happy Birthdays! I hope you had a grand week and if I were there I would have baked you both a cake...and helped you eat it too! I would have brought Spencer some of my "natural & healthy" homemade dog treats (recipe is on my blog this week) that I make for my girls. Your plans to celebrate sounded just wonderful!
    I am also getting in the "painting mood" and I can't wait to see what yours looks like....I could use some inspiration and motivation. I just have so many things I want to do but right now is caulking outside before it gets too cold.
    I had horses when I had my little farmette and I love them so! The red one looks like my first horse. Oh, what I wouldn't give to ride again and have an acreage. It looks like you have the best of all worlds there! Gorgeous scenery too and I still can't get over all your beautiful walking paths. Enjoy your birthdays! TTYS!

  4. Dear Maggie, Belated Birthday wishes to both of you. Please do keep sharing the wonderful photos of your beautiful neighborhood. They are a welcome sight for us "concrete jungle" residents. :)

  5. Happy belated birthday :) Sounds like a busy relaxing week, looking forward to seeing the new decor. xx

  6. Happy birthday to both of you! It was mine too on wednesday so I share it with Chris! I love the view from your window, it must be lovely looking out onto that view every day.X

  7. Happy Birthday! Maggie glad you had a lovely time

    Great picture of the horses....its a long time since I last saw that....reminds me when I used stay at my Aunty's farm in Somerset. That was out in the wilds!
