Prom Dresses and Flowers

Yippeee it's Thursday and I'm off work for 4 whole days for Easter.  I love getting time off work :)))

On Saturday Emma and I went shopping for her prom dress.  She found 2 dresses which she really loved. 
Do you know we spent a whole hour in the changing room trying to decide which dress to buy - a whole hour!!! But at the end of all that she made her decision. I have to say picked a beautiful dress and she looked stunning in it. It is deep purple colour and full length. 
It was a real lump in the throat moment for me, my baby is growing up to fast!! Where did all those years go? 
She loves to try it on so maybe I'll convince her to let me take her photograph with it on.

I've been getting plenty of walking in these days. I go out with my friend in the morning early and we have a good blether (chat) along the way, and then in the evening I go out with Karen. 
I tell you I am going to be so fit by the end of it - well that's the plan anyway. 
 I am quite enjoying it as well - that's got to be a good thing.

I was messing around with my flowers, which are getting past their best now, and trying to find different ways to take photographs of them

This is what I came up with.

Brings back memories when we had to sort my prom dress - my mum made it and we walked for hours and hours into one and then another and then another fabric shop until I found the perfect piece of fabric :-)

Hi Ellie,
Nice daisy pictures on a black background!
It was fun to hear about your shopping spree with your daughter to find a prom dress!
I'm writing from a friend's computer as mine is out of action and won't be mended until after Easter!
Have a beautiful family Easter!
Warm wishes,

Hope your daughter will allow you to share a picture of her in her dress - it sounds beautiful.
Love the picture of the daisy with the water droplets.
I also walk every morning - it's very blustery here this morning, but I managed to get in a 30 minute walk. It's great exercise! Good for you - going twice daily!
Your flowers are so pretty.
It really is amazing how fast our children grow up. I hope Karen will have fun at her prom.

Your daisy shot is beautiful!!
