Field Flowers in November

4 Nov

While I walked the dog yesterday I spotted some wild flowers still very much in bloom.

So I guess I had to take pictures…

And finally… Will someone for pity’s sake please PLEASE explain to me how dogs manage to look so worried and sad and neglected for so much of the time??…
Eh?!?
Just look at the eyebrows and see if you’re not suddenly consumed by compassion for that poor POORcreature…

Clever bits and pieces

12 Jul

>I have a new “app” on my phone which lets you create some amazing images by turning any photograph in my gallery black and white; I then select a particularly striking element of the picture and paint the colour back into it to make it stand out.
The results are wonderful, especially if the element chosen is a bold, single colour

…Good, isn’t it!?

Happy birthday darling one…!!

19 Sep

My beautiful Thomas has turned 7 today. I am so proud of him.It is a tradition in our house to eat chocolate cake at breakfast on someone’s birthday. So I made some cute little cupcakes late last night and there was 1 candle to blow out – in anticipation of the 7 we will have on a bigger cake tomorrow when daddy and grandparents have arrived…He was sung to and looked pleased as punch…Then he got down to the business of eating his cake…with his brothers spurring him on and joining in.The phone rang and he had a nice little conversation with Mamie and Bonpapa 🙂 proudly announcing he was ‘seven’ (which he has only just learnt to say clearly)Cards were opened…and presents unwrapped…..all in mummy’s bed, because we could!!

Aaah, birthdays… I love them… Because I love celebrating life. Don’t you?!!!

Catch up #3

19 Sep

>So I had a birthday. In May. Yeah I know, that was nearly half a year ago!!
On this birthday I unashamedly (and ‘officially, I suppose…) reached middle-age.
And Mr Wibbs and I decided a day-trip to the Queen’s hometown was in order.According to our 1890’s horse-drawn-carriage driver, the royal standard was up meaning Her Majesty was home. But we just ran out of time and couldn’t pay her a visit. Instead we took a ride on the Big Wheel of Windsor… …where panoramic views were enjoyed by Mr Wibbs, Ben and yours truly…Ben was awe-struck by the height we reached several times as the wheel went round and round; meanwhile, Mr Wibbs got up to his usual tricksWe had a lovely, lazy, sun- and laughter-filled day and Ben was a delight as ever, making my birthday even more special…by just being BenIt was a special special day in which it goes without saying that chocolate cake was eaten…and an amazing coffee machine bought as my birthday presentWe ended the day with a romantic walk at sunset.I know it was a while ago, but see? I still remember it all; and remembering brings me so much joy, and reminds me of how blessed and loved I really am.
