JUXTAPOSE... (and japanese)

with a little help from my COLLINS CONSISE tome AGAIN...
I thought I would try to juxtapose some images  
I may be wrong with this train of thought, I hope not...
here is the definition from my tome

'to place close together or side by 
side, esp. for comparison or contrast.'

60ft Oak tree  on the Isle of Wight 2008

8 inch J-apanese Bonsai in my back garden - summer 2008

I bought this is from a supermarket bargain bin for pennies, all the leaves were brown and crisp. 
 l trimmed it, watered it and I read up about Bonsai,
many people make the error of placing them inside the home, 
with central heating and dry air, they are just not compatible.
Treat it like any other tree and it wll flourish, put it outside, (sheltered in winter) et voila!

Don't forget to stop by Mr.  LINKYat Mrs.Nesbits place, to see "J" posts from all around the world. And....we'd all love it if you left comments, or, even better, if you want to join the fun.


  1. Just so smart, you juxtaposing junebug. (neeeeed sleeeepppp, meee)

  2. Wow, I learned again a new word: juxtaposing. So the Japanese Bonsai can survive outside the house? I must try that. I got several bonsai trees and they were pretty when I got them, but very soon they died.

  3. You have a very neat and pretty garden by the look of it!

    That's a top success story with your Bonsai tree.

    In Japanese, the word means 'Bon' (Tray) and 'Sai' (planting), according to my Oxford Dictionary of English.

  4. Ce qui est haut est comme ce qui est en bas.
    What's up is alike what's down.
    I hope you are not an Alaskan hockey mum !
    Any way you seem to like "With a little help for your friend" so I could forgive.

  5. Okay, that explains why I killed the last Bonsai I had.


    Beautiful shots...Peace - D

  6. Love your Japanese bonsai.
    When our son was a teenager he bought a bonsai but his didn't last too long.
    I think he inherited my black thumb.

    Bear((( )))

  7. Fabulous. You must have a green thumb! Those two trees are quite the contrast...

  8. What a brilliant idea for J! Interesting info too.
    The first photo is a fantastic shot:)
    Hope all is well with you. S

  9. Thanks for the tip. My mum had a bonsai indoors and it didn't look very happy. Now I know why. Will try it outside.

  10. That's my girl, font of all wisdom. Now write a hundred times
    Mother's, mother's mother's.

  11. LOL..never to old to be scolded or do lines huh!? LOL

  12. How clever are you...great contrasts...

    I have had trouble lately thinking of pikkies to go with the letters..until I look up the dictionary..what a cheat I am!


    ps Thanks for your visit!

  13. your bonsai looks lovely. :) and great word choice. :)

  14. Excellent juxtaposition! Congrats on the bonsai tree!

  15. You have quite the green thumb. I invite you to come see my post about jets. -- Margy

I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
