Week 5 Ashley and Laurie Linkup

Week 5 means it’s October, I love, love October (and not just because it’s my birthday month) I love that its finally Autumn. I love that the clocks go back and we get an extra hour in bed. I love that you can wrap up warm for a dog walk and come home to a log fire. I love the smell of woodsmoke in the air. I love the anticipation of Christmas and frosty mornings. I could go on but I think you get the idea?

How has your week treated you?

I have a friend staying with me this week, she is visiting from Seattle. So far I have shown her Salisbury and Frome. London is next and by the time you read this we will be in Morocco for a week sightseeing and taking lots of photographs…

Every Thursday launching from 7am, on both our blogs.


Any post on any subject you like from the last week. Instagram pics welcome too! (Please note your links are added are in random order.)


  1. You will discover new blogs to read and other people can discover your blog too. Win win!
  2. Laurie and I will each pick someone to feature each week from the week before, on both our blogs.

Link-up Etiquette

“We dont like rules, anything goes… play nice and be polite” 

However, because you are getting two links for the price of one, all we ask is that you leave a comment on both our blogs?  Afterall you wouldn’t go to a party and ignore the host now would you?

Love to know what you have been up to this week! so do leave me a comment?

You can read last weeks news here

    Hi Ashley,
    I am with you on what you love about Fall too. I was just telling my hubby how much I love the smell of campfire smoke and the woods. i enjoy the dog walk in the morning as well. Sounds like a good time with the vintage shop and enjoying finding restaurants where you live.
    enjoy the weekend!
