good .. so generally feeling a bit low!

I don’t even think low is the right word…

maybe a bit stuck!!

Always  one of the questions for

me at the beginning of the year is ..

What am I doing???












  I hope you enjoy just a few of the

flower photos I have taken in the last few years.

Will be back soon….

Take care

and Thank you to you all.

On a cold and wintery day in England, where do you go for a day out???

We wrapped up and
went on an unusual day out!!

I say unusual,
as I have not been
to a zoo or wildlife
park without children.

Arni and I  went to the

Click on photos to enlarge.

We were hoping to go to Europe
for a few days when Arni
had his leave from work!!

But then we got snowed in,
couldn't leave England,
couldn't leave Oxfordshire
for days and just had to get out!!

At least it didn't rain until we were
leaving the Park.

4 Year Blogiversary today.....

I cannot believe I have
been doing this blog for
4 years!!!

Big thank you to you all
for your wonderful comments over the
years .. which has kept me going
with the blog!!

I found this photo on the web .. I think it
is very apt...

Some of us have become
very good friends,
even though
we were strangers,
might not of met you all , but we
are still friends.

My first post was about our
holiday in Sicily ..

Here is just a snippet of a few places.

Hopefully will be back again soon , to start off another Year ♥

The start of the New Year felt good ........

  like all was going well!

And then  just when you think all is good, 
and you feel positive of situations around, you 
breathe a sigh of relief ...... bang it happens !!

Something else is thrown at you , and it
needs sorting out!!!

You wonder why you cannot have a bit 
of peace and why is this happening!!!!!!

I want to go forward into this year , with a 
new start, with a happy husband,
a happy family, happy sons too!!

I would like less worries, 
try and find a new job, 
which will give me satisfaction 
and use my skills.  

My youngest son is troubled a the moment, 
and that makes me troubled too!!

I do pray that he gets the help he needs, 
the support and he can go forward , 
to help him with his relationship, his college,
and his children and his life!!
