These pictures have been taken from previous posts…in my 5 years of blogging…every now and then I do this, as its nice to see little snippets of my home…especially for my new followers…that perhaps haven’t caught up with all my posts yet!
Every week, apparently!….25 minutes of daylight is added to each day…and being that I am a night time person…I can’t wait for the extra daylight hours at the end of each day…Roll on the clocks going forward…it can’t happen soon enough for me!…as I am a late to bed, late to rise kinda gal…I seem to have so much more creative energy at night and less interruptions!…well apart from the occasional pick ups from nightclubs for my kids! lol.
My geraniums in the garden had been still budding right through Chrimbo and right up until only the other week when we had the snow…now they have completely died and look terrible…
I love geraniums…they are so hardy…I suppose its because we spent so many years holidaying in France…the pretty red flowers next to the french blue shutters were just to die for…and that is the look I always try to create in the garden…reminds me of many great holidays!
Of course it goes without saying that I love Roses…and for a few years now I have been meaning to plant a couple of Rose bushes in the garden…also lavender!…and a Hydrangea…I have always grown lavender in my previous gardens, and I plan to plant it everywhere that there is a gap this year!…
Our garden at the moment is looking pretty damn terrible! I didn’t get to cut down a lot of shrubs last year, as, as I said before, it has been a warm winter and a lot of the plants and shrubs were still in bloom…of course now we have had the colder weather, everything looks sooo awful…luckily though the garden is always forgiving and once I have chopped and pruned and a little sun and a scattering of rain (please let it rain a little)…and I know everything will be all hunky dory again!
…and now the weather has turned all spring like it makes me feel like I want to create…and create is what I have been doing…in between hospital appointments for Freddy, Rosie and Max…I have been making all sorts of lovely things with my sewing machine…its funny you know! I have been thinking of making things for ages, and where I have not had the time…as I have had to look after my family…I have spent more time looking on my computer at what i would like to make (happy style) rather than actually getting on and doing it!
…Then…my computer that had been giving up the ghost for ages…finally ‘died’ for good…and I had a few days without it!…so I replaced it with my sewing machine…and all the time I would have spent looking at it and wasting time dreaming…I have actually got on and made things, in between work chores…
…and oh it feels so good!….creating is what I love, no matter whether it is graphics, decorating or making stuff…I love the feeling of achievement 🙂
…Oh and I must apologise for my absence…it pains me to see people leave my followers…when I don’t blog for a while, but it is sooo understandable!…so just to let you know…my life is very erratic at the moment…its filled up with trips to clinics and appointments for the doctors, as Freddy (my hubby) and Rosie have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and also in the last few weeks we have found out that my Freddy is suffering from Heart Failure…so we are learning to live with those consequences…which has been very tough indeedy!…we have been through every emotion possible…as you can imagine!
…But we are keeping our chins up, good management is what it is all about…so we are in for the ‘long haul’….
I love blogging to you gals…and when I can, I will…it might be through fits and spurts…but I will never stop…!
I just thought I had better explain 😉
Anyway…enough of all that!…the sun has got his hat on and I am going out to play ;)
