I was mildly chastised by a dear blogging friend for the verbosity of my Six word Saturdays, so I’m not going to hang about explaining.  I’ll simply say that my weekend with my daughter produced a few surprises.  Click on any photo for more details.

I’m practising brevity. (but only for the purposes of this challenge)  What do you think?  Join Cate at Show My Face if you want to play along.  The button below links to my previous Six word Saturdays.  Happy weekend!



  1. Too brief for me Jo! I did tell you I enjoy your verbosity 🙂
    Jokes apart, lovely post. You have given me one more thing to put on my ‘taste before you die list’!!

    1. Thank you so much for the time spent with me! Sometimes you can get lured in and whoops, there goes another evening. I’m off duty for a little while, my Polish family having gone home. Time for a catchup myself 🙂

  2. Well, some says we can please everyone dear Jo, as far as I’m concerned your long post doesn’t bored me, your picture are always beautiful as well. Seems like you don’t need to practise that much, brevety is “also” in your blood…

    All my best and happy SWS !


    1. It was totally unexpected, Karen. I would rather have liked to stay for a meal, but I was just off the coach and Lisa had just finished work, so maybe another time. 🙂

  3. I would love to try cheese flavored ice cream! I thought I was being brave this summer when I tried chocolate peanut butter flavored cheese LOL

    1. That sounds dodgy to me, Becca! I was a little bemused by having a celeb and film crew around, but it was fun. I wasn’t queuing for seconds but it was nice with the berries. 🙂

  4. Jo, don’t change ANYTHING! You are perfect the way that you are! I love reading your 6WS posts and your other posts too! Be who you are and true to yourself, because really who else can you be? 🙂

  5. You did manage to keep it shorter than usual, Jo, but I know you can’t resist telling a story! It looks like you had a lovely time with Lisa. I’d love some of that cheese and cherry ice cream! 🙂

    1. It was quite exciting (and unexpected) having the celeb and film crew there, Cathy. I would love to eat in the restaurant- looks really nice. Maybe another time. 🙂

      1. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, Jo. I’m sure you will find another time to eat there. I’m sure it was exciting with the celeb and film crew! That’s always a fun adventure. 🙂

  6. I personally miss your narrative. I enjoy all your words, and shame on those who chastised you! Besides, Cate says you can explain, or not! Okay, I am done with my rant. 😉

    I enjoy seeing your lovely daughter’s style, and every adventure you post. I am envious of being that close to a celebrity like Jamie Oliver. Was the ice cream similar to the flavor of cheesecake?

    1. I’ve not had cheesecake flavour, I don’t think, though I’ve heard it’s good. This was quite cheesey and I don’t think I could eat a lot of it, but it went well with the berries. (and it was free 🙂 ) The cheese it was made from was there for tasting too, alongside of grapes.

  7. Ben & Jerry make a really delicious strawberry cheesecake ice cream. The factory’s only about an hour’s drive. I go there, take the free tour (w/ free samples) fairly regularly. I consider myself lucky if the flavor of the day is the cheesecake (or, better yet, the Cherry Garcia).

  8. You my friend would have made a great TRUCKER you are like me with a little REBEL deep down inside 🙂

    Push the envelope when you can get away with it we all love your stories 🙂


  9. I love the idea of this challenge, and think about it every week, but I know I could never be that brief. However I love your flagrant disregard for the rules, and always love to read your posts Jo. The ice-cream sounds…..interesting

  10. Are you supposed to only have the six words at the top then? I like your other words, too, and you’re certainly not verbose. Thea Caffea looks superb, and Lisa’s handbag is marvellous! I’m curious about the cheese icecream, was it cheddary? Is there actually cheese in it?

    1. You’re supposed to just use six and keep people guessing, but I can never resist telling the story, Lorna. 🙂
      We got to taste the cheese too, and a little went a long way, if you know what I mean! The icecream tasted a bit like Dairylea (not wishing to advertise) but it went well with the berries.

  11. Hi Jo ~~ I love your posts of any length. They are sooo interesting. 🙂 Thank you for all the pictures. Your daughter is one pretty young lady.

    We are still with our daughter although they went to Stockholm for the weekend. That means we are stuck with the grandkids, girls four and sixteen. What a pleasure!!!

    I would like your cheese flavoured icecream and berries. Most every day that we are here I treat to the Gelato Mia here on High Street. It is an eight minute walk.

      1. You could do it occasionally perhaps? There are so many challenges out there now to provide inspiration.
        I enjoy your writing and photos, so don’t mind whether they are responses to challenges or not 🙂
