April

Image
Can you believe it's the 1st April already.   This year is going by sooo fast.
It's also Friday and the start of the weekend. I love a Friday, with thoughts of what I may do at the weekend. However, it is absolutely pouring with rain today and I think there is more of the same for tomorrow. That really limits what we can do.  I'm sure I'll think of something though :)
Well I started writing this blog on the 1st and it's now the 2nd, I really do need to get myself more organised!


I got these lovely flowers from Karen and Emma on Mother's Day aren't they lovely. 
I've also got right into making photobooks. So far I've made one of Laura and Kevin's wedding.  I though I'd put a couple of my favourite photographer shots up.              Wedding photography by James Solly  photographer. 
 I quite often look through the album and it brings back lovely memories.

I have also completed a photobook of our holiday to America in 2013.  I'm just wondering what …

Tangerines and a touch of Yoga.

I made some muffins the other day and was wondering what flavour to use.  Well, I found some tangerines that were needing to be used up. So using a basic muffin recipe I squeezed the juice and added peel into it and also used some of the juice in the icing.  Let me tell you they were very tasty, even if I do say so myself.

Karen and I have been going to a yoga class once a week since the beginning of December. I think we are both starting to feel a wee bit more flexible. But let me tell you some of those exercises are just plain hard!!! Take Monday evening for instance, we were doing a couple of slightly more advanced exercises. Picture this - lying on your back with your legs at 45 degree angle, legs crossed then pull slightly on your  ankles to pull your legs closer to your body, putting  a good old stretch into your old gluteus maximus.  
Ha, first of all I couldn't even cross my legs properly and as for grabbing my ankles - no chance!!  Some people could actually do it but there was …

First Day of Spring

Image
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…
