Welcome

Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here. Hugs Sara

An Ambitious Weekend

Hi Everyone

Well we have had a very wet but fab weekend.  Saturday night saw us having a meal with my best friend and her partner that had come to stay in Weymouth for a couple of days.  Had a great time catching up and have made plans to stay with Emma in October.  On the Sunday we drove down to The Great Western Canal by Tiverton.  It was a ride out with the Harley group we belong to.  However because it was wet and I still cant do long journey on the bike yet, we drove down in our defender.  We had a good turnout considering it was so wet.  20 bikes showed up and a fair few in cars like us.  The ride on the narrow boat was so much fun.  Of course we took the weather in our stride and we cracked jokes etc. 







Then after the canal ride it was back to Dawn and Snowman's (his nickname) Chris's house out in the wilds for ploughman's and homemade scones and cakes.  I stuffed my face silly.  Then Chris announced that his next door neighbour who keeps reptiles was showing them in his conservatory.  Well I have always loved snakes and lizards but never had the oportunity to hold them.  He had tarantula's there as well.  I was a bit more nervous about them but





it was something I have always wanted to do.  I was a bit shaky after the tarantula but it was so fascinating.  They feel completely different to house spiders which I do have a problem with.

Looks like a fun weekend. I love tarantulas actually. My hubby used to have a couple.

Ohhh Im envious of your trip! What fun you must have had, especially on the bikes! As for the crawlies you held, I love em because theyre alive but prefer birds, then again, my daughter would be thrilled to have them all on at once! :) When we move she plans to expand the family and get herself a snake (Eastern Indigo) I told her anyhing that touches my feathered babies becomes sushi ;)
We actually found a snake outside and took him in to see what spieces he was (in case someone let out a critter that wouldnt survive) but he turned out local and I let him go into this garden that skunks and racoons cant get into :)
Thanks for the sweet post! you look too cute :D

Hugs,

Hi there,

Thanks to Anna’s great Practical Magic blog party website I know that you are taking part in the event. I have pondered how to participate and thought it would be neat to post anonymously people’s thoughts and/or secrets regarding the movie. Sites which inspired me are:

Post Secret
Walt Disney Confessions

Those thoughts or secrets could e.g. be “I have already watched the movie 1,000 times,” “I wish I had a sister like Gilly,” “The aunts’ house is my dream house,” “I have dreamt about Jimmy” etc. Anything which comes to your mind when you think of “Practical Magic.”

If you feel like helping me out, be sure to send me your thought/secret as soon as possible at swappinghowdies@yahoo.de. Of course, I handle each “confession” anonymously. And – please nothing x-rated!

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit
