New year, new ritual

6 Jan

There are few things I dislike more than the end of Christmas, specifically taking down the Christmas tree.
So, this year I’ve decided on a new ritual…to decorate the house with fresh flowers once the tree goes.
It’s certainly brightened up the rooms after clearing all the decorations.







Friday flowers

17 Nov

From my love, to make me feel better. They certainly did 🙂



My week…

7 Sep

It’s always a shock to the system when I go back to work after the summer. My poor brain doesn’t seem to work so quickly and I’m not used to using it all day after 6 weeks off!

Having said that, it’s been a lovely first week back and school always seems complete once the kids return. I feel much more sure of what I’m doing this year which is nice as last year I didn’t feel that way until Christmas!

The first couple of days were training days and on Monday myself (and another teacher who is recently engaged) were given a bouquet of lovely flowers as congratulations.


It has been absolutely lovely weather this week and I took this photo whilst waiting for the bus this afternoon, gorgeous blue sky.


Friday meant new red shoes (I felt like Dorothy all day…just a little less glittery)


All in all a lovely first week, improved by lots of sunshine, it feels quite good to get back to work in a strange way 🙂

Photo of (last) week…

27 Aug

I took this photo last week at the allotment with my dad, there is a lovely selection of different sunflowers planted there.


I think the different heights of these flowers makes them look like a sunflower family 🙂


Photo of the week

16 Aug

My first ever photo of the week (photo of the day would be far too much for me to remember!)


This gorgeous plant was a complete bargain (£1.99) and is such a beautiful colour. I have recently discovered Dahlias, there were many lovely ones planted in Monet’s garden.

Hopefully it will survive the winter!
