Well. it's just typical I take a week's holiday and it rains, it's windy and cold. Then the first day back at work and it was a gorgeous day. Lovely bright blue sky, sun splitting the sky and it's hot - in fact some may even say it was t-shirt weather and we don't get many days like that around here these days!! Although it has to be said the good weather only lasted the one day - I just hope that wasn't our summer for the year!!!
I thought I'd take a wander around our garden to see what colour I could find.
Our wee apple tree has blossoms already - which will hopefully mean some lovely apples comethe autumn.
We also have a tree which was here when we moved into this house around 19 years ago. I've no idea what it is but it does have some lovely blossoms every year. They start off being these wee red buds and then they turn into lovely light pink blossom. One year we even had two sets of blossoms. When it is in full bloom it is really pretty.
And then there is the common dandelion flower, which is a real pain in the garden but nonetheless quite a pretty wee flower - I just know that Danny won't agree with me about the pretty flower bit, sorry Dan :))
I hope you are having lovely weather wherever you are in the world :))
I've almost forgotten how to do this, it has been soooo long. Absolutely no excuses I'm afraid. Life has been quite busy over the last - on my I've just been to check the last time I blogged - May 2017. That's almost a year!!! Where does time go? Last September Dan and myself headed over to California and had a fab time on holiday. It was a touring holiday and we had a fab time and saw so much. We started in San Francisco, on to Calistoga in Napa Valley, 2 days in Yosemite (one word WOW), Lone Pine, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grant Canyon, Bryce Canon, Zion, Los Angeles, Cambria, and finally back to San Francisco to get a flight home. We experienced so much and made some beautiful memories, I may even do a blog or two on it. In fact we had such a great time we are going back this year!!! Not going to so many places but spending more time in our favourite. Its all booked and I can't wait.
Ok it's been over a year since my last post. I know, shocking right? Life sometimes is in the habit of getting in the way.
It's not that I've totally ignored the blogging community 'cause I've dipped in every so often, read some blogs, thought about writing a blog lots of times but just not got round to it.
So here I am trying my hand at it once again.
What finally got me really interested again is the fact that my youngest daughter Emma has started up her own blog and she's enjoying it so much that she has me feeling enthusiastic about it again. Yay good for you Emma! If you fancy a having a peek at her fresh outlook on life please take a look at Emma's blog merrymaid . She's is very proud of it, and rightly so. 😃.
So what have I been up to for the last year? Well when I think about it not a huge amount.
We have had a difficult year as my dad's not been too well and it's always very hard to see someone you love struggle. But we are getting t…
Ok so I have been back to work for a couple of weeks after our summer holiday. Not that we did that much. We (well I mean Danny really) fixed a leak in the water tank, that took a full week as there were so many problems but it's fixed now so all is well :) My girls and me went to Glasgow so Laura could try on her wedding dress which had just come into the shop - and she did look stunning! Oh and I also bought my wedding outfit!!! I know I can't believe it either. I really had had no intention of buying so early but the girls wanted me to try on some things and before I knew it I found THE ONE.You know when you try something on and you just LOVE it, well that's what happened!I am not an impulse buyer and I hate shopping for clothes but there you go. I just have to really careful to not put on too much weight or lose to much either. Now I'm pretty sure I'll manage not to lose much but not putting it on might be more difficult lol. That just leaves the shoes, b…
