Spring Has Sprung

13 Mar

So I feel a little unsettled today; maybe because its Sunday, maybe because of the tsunami and subsequent death toll and the humbling thought that there is more to life than just us, maybe becuase Little Bean is still on the other side of the world, maybe because someone  else is heading off to the other far edge of the world for a month and he means more to me than I lead myself to believe…. or maybe just because I didnt sleep well.


So as I always do to cheer me up, i looked through my pictures and they cheered me up. So im sharing!

Im proud of this picture. It was when I was dabbling in photography, and it makes me happy!

Xander-Joel, my cousins first born is the most darling little boy in the world. So happy, he never fails to put a smile on my face. I love her others too, but this photo is delightful and it makes me want to squish him!

Holidays and happy times in Portugal… and yes, it was Pimms o’clock!


My baby boy! When we first brought them home they were scared and a bit scraggy (we got them form the cats protection league) and over the months we saw them blossom. Ex boyfriend now has both of them, but its best for them as they are frolicking fields and eating as many mice as they can gorge themselves on. If you dont have a pet you wont get how attached you become, but i will love them always. But Pepper will always be mine.

Now I’m off to make toad in the hole for Emma and Jim ( or toad in the very still pond as it sometimes turns out!!!)

See you tomorrow

      aww that sounds like my cat, when she sleeps in my bedroom. I’ve banned cats from my bedroom at night, too much hassle…!!

    I love your macro. It’s really pretty! Thanks for stopping by my blog. The picture in my header isn’t my hometown unfortunately, but it is only 4 hours away, off the west coast!

    I shared that unsettled sensation. I’m hoping to nap with my little one and wake up feeling a little less glum. This has helped in the meantime. Thanks for the smiles these pictures encouraged!

    Beautiful pictures, I can see why they’re your happy memories. It’s nice to have things like this to hold onto in times of unrest

    Besides cheering yourself up looking at your photos, you did it for me too! I love the first pic of the inside of a flower – it’s awesome, just look at those pretty colours!
    Hope you are feeling better after a good sleep too!

    Love those squishy baby cheeks! (All the photos are wonderful, and it’s definitely a good weekend to count our blessings and focus on the things that make us happiest.)
