For C, two years ago today - remembered with love.

I love my home...I love being at home!

Wednesday mornings are just about the only times I have time to myself in my home. I work Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, the weekends other people are around, Monday I go to the gym and aerobics and the supermarket, Wednesday afternoons is Riding for the Disabled time. But I relish time alone in my house and garden. I love being here.

I haven't done anything very exciting this morning. I have been scrubbing mould off the shower cubicle in our bathroom with an old toothbrush. then a bit of wedding in the garden, sorting laundry, Hoovering, dusting, cleaning the girls bathroom. Then a bowl of homemade soup and off to RDA. Phil missed out on the pancakes yesterday so I'll mix up some extra batter for him tonight!

I managed to read this month's reading group choice(Frankie & Stankie by Barbara Trapido...you MUST read it!!) in spare minutes today. It was good, but thank goodness I'm a fast reader - I always leave the "set book" to the last minute!

Hi dear julie,
Good you are such a sweety, a flower for C. this only YOU can do. That you read books so fast. I can hardly find time (thats my excuse as always!)
Ha, but doing exiting things? is also not my strongest side too, except for short trips and our travels, and.... my photography always helps me to see 'the world' more clear and creative!

Terrific closeup of that flower. It is a lovely tribute.
My goodness you are one busy person. i got tired just reading all your "free" day entails.

You fill every minute - that's what I call living life to the full - enjoy!

I completely forgot it was pancake day yesterday so ended up making pancakes for breakfast today (tho I can't really call it breakfast as it was 11.30 before I wanted to eat)

I do the same with reading group books, got my latest one to read by the 27th and haven't started it yet

Sounds like you've been really busy; I finally finished my history assignment so actually managed a walk around the garden myself this morning...just the dusting etc to do now...groan

another lovely photo. my favorites list is chock full, I think I'll just admit they're all my favorites.

I cleaned the shower this morning as well. I love the feeling of little tasks accomplished - and the smell of clean.
