Share Your World – January 30 2017

I’m enjoying participating in Cee’s Share Your World.  It’s a great way to join with other bloggers to share our worlds. This week’s questions are: What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? I am fortunate to have seen many incredible natural sights in the world but I’d have to say  my favourite place has been…

Birthday girl!

Weekly photo challenge: In admiration of Ruby

Show us someone or something you admire (and tell us about them, too)!  This week’s photo challenge is all about admiration.  As we’ve just been to see my mother-in-law to help celebrate her birthday, I thought I’d share a few words about Ruby! R – Reflective, reliable, responsible, resplendent and rational – a calming influence, willing to share her wisdom with all…

Contemplation – Week 8: Who are you going to call?

Hello! I have been busy contemplating desleyjane’s latest prompt from her Kikki.K, A Sentence a Day journal.   This week the prompt is: Who do you want to talk to right now? I thought of lots of people I’d like to talk to; I’ve talked with my mum already today, with one of my daughters and messaged the other two.  I’ve talked with…

Weekly photo challenge: A vibrant man on his birthday and 500 posts for me

An especially vibrant day – my husband’s birthday and my 500th post! I like the definition of vibrant – full of energy and life –  it describes my husband perfectly! My blog also tries to be full of energy and life 🙂 My photo shows the birthday boy modelling his special birthday sign, just for me to use in my blog (although he…

Every day is an adventure – Day 49/365

This is my adventure shot for the day because every adventure should start with shiny red shoes! A little friend turned 2 recently and her birthday party was a fun event with fairy bread, chocolate crackles, cake, pass the parcel and balloons….and lots of little people. I spotted these little shiny red shoes and fell in love with them. My daily photo project is…

Tea Time #11 – Birthday month

I read somewhere recently, (I can’t remember where though), that the mother should be congratulated on the birth-day of her children rather than the way we do it now, showering the birthday child with gifts and birthday wishes.    I presume because the mother has done all the work in producing said child.  I don’t mind this idea! I remember sending my mother flowers when…

Looking ahead

The issue of ageing is something we all face and everyone has their own take on how they will cope. Some are grateful for the chance to get older as they have lost family and friends at an early age and know how precious life is. Others fight it all the way by putting toxins in their bodies for the chance…

A special Guest Blogger – my daughter wrote this for me, about me

My youngest daughter, Eliza, has written her first ever blog post!  We were together with family over the Christmas break and she presented me with a framed version of her post (below) for my recent birthday.  She also said she’d like to share it on my blog as she’d really like an ‘audience’.  She now has the awesome honour of being my first ever…

Birthday thoughts

I’m officially another year older today. Funnily enough I don’t feel any older than I did yesterday! I have had the best day – presents, a day off work, a nice walk/run, a long lunch with 2 other birthday friends, our town’s Christmas street party and lots of lovely messages, hugs and kisses from friends and family. I’m definitely feeling the…
