Wordless Wednesday: 28 June 2017

Looking up through the trees

 Wordless Wednesday - winter not winter While staying with my mother, I attended her weekly exercise class in the park.

Are you in order?

Order in packing

Order- This week's photo challenge asks us to share our take on order, whether literal, figurative, or anything in between (and sure — showing it next to a healthy dose of messiness is fine, too). I'm so glad that last bit was added in, about it being OK to show a healthy dose of messiness, …

Mundane Monday – Simple things: patterns and shadows

patterns and shadows

Patterns and shadows This was the sight I saw as I looked down this morning.  The pattern of my dress was over-layed with the shadow from the glass doors where the morning sun was streaming in.  I liked the combination so much that I took a quick photo then headed out the door to work.  Sometimes …

My name is Debbie and I’m addicted to…jackets!

I have a confession to make - I am obsessed with jackets at the moment.  There I've said it! Please don't judge me 🙂 All week I have had to plan my work outfits around my jacket obsession.  I have worn my groovy black one, which I bought recently with my sister, (what a fun …
