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 :))
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…
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.
Well, today was the first day of Spring, it's been a long time coming!!It didn't disappoint, we have had a lovely blue sky and warmer temps although there wasa chilly wee wind blowing.I got to sit outside in the back garden and watch Dan doing some hard work. We have got some gym equipment in the garage but it is so messy in there we can't get to it. So, Dan's mission this weekend, whether he chose to accept it or not, was to clear some space in the garage and clean the mats for the floor. Well the garage is now tidier and this is him cleaning the mats (I think he might have a sore back tomorrow).
He was using the hose to rinse them off and all was going well until he went to switch the water on. The hose took on a life all of its own. It snaked around the garden soaking everything in sight. I ran away from it and got my back soaked. Dan being a heroic sort of bloke grabbed it and got a good soaking for this trouble. It was quite funny, even Dan laughed after he had sq…
