Red and White

Ok it's been two weeks since I last blogged. 
When I think back to a couple of years when I used to blog daily - how did I ever do it!! 
I don't seem to have much to write about nowadays, looking back I didn't then either but I still did  it!
I must have turned into a very boring person - surely not :))


I know lots of people going away on holiday just now - and I'm very envious of them all!   

First of all our Karen is away to Athens. 
Wow, what a place to visit, so much to see and do!   I can't wait till she gets back to hear all about it and see her piccies. 

 My friend is away to Italy at the end of the week. I'd love to go to Italy, maybe next year eh Danny!!!!

My sister is also going away for a week relaxing in the sun - sounds like bliss!!! 

 I shouldn't really complain as I haven't done too badly holiday wise over the last couple of years having visited America, Portugal and Germany.
 I love visiting other countries and seeing their sights!

Anyway today hasn't been too bad a day, and I was out inspecting what was growing in my garden (apart from the weeds etc!).

I saw this little lilac flower and I've no idea what it is. It started with a wee lilac bulb which then blossomed into this, I wonder what it will do next. 
If anyone has any idea what it might be I'd love it if you would let me know :)

Pretty wee thing isn't it?





I also did something else that I haven't done for the longest time.
I bough myself some flowers and took some pics of them. 
Red and white are such a beautiful contrast don't you think?




Our house is a bit quiet now with Karen being away, just me and Danny here now. 
We are sitting listening to Pink Floyd on the cd player.  
Very cool!!

Anyway I'm signing off the the day, I'll try and blog before the next two weeks are up :))

Have a good week everyone!  :))

Our Week!

So, we had a bank holiday last Monday which gave us a free day at the weekend. 
It was a lovely day so we decided to take a wee trip.

We drove to Loch Doon which is in the Galloway Forest.  
It's such a beautiful place and so peaceful!

We stopped and had our packed lunch and all you could hear were the birds chirping. 

It was lovely and warm in the car but let me tell you when you went out, boy was that a chilly wind blowing. 





We pottered about taking some piccies and then drove back home going through the forest.

All in all it was a very pleasant day!

However, the next day at work well that was a different story.  
Phew we were sooooo busy.
 You do begin to wonder if it is really worth having a day off. 

But I am really glad we did :))  

We also bought a new exercise bike this week. 
Hubby and I are now on a get fit kick. 
I think I am really needing it!! :)

Watch this space!
