Today the sun shone.
So in a bid to catch a little of the dry weather, 
I spent a few moments  in my break, 
breathing in the fresh air and 
admiring the view we have from the outside balcony area at the museum.
I think you will agree it's a great view!

  1. Okay, where is this? I swear I have been there before!

  2. Wow. That's a postcard view if I ever saw one! Beautiful!!

  3. I agree - it is a GREAT view! Glad you were able to take a break and admire it. Enjoy.

  4. Holy crap! That green is crazy intense! Beautiful.

  5. You are going to get a lot of WOWs! with that shot. Very pretty. What museum are you lucky enough to be at? (That's my dream job).

  6. Oh I am so so envious!! I don't know where you are but I do think the grass is greener there, and I want to be there too. Came over from Photo Story Friday and I am so glad I have joined, especially if I get too see awesome posts like this! I will be back!

  7. Now living in a place where a frisson of excitement ran through the local historical society when an 1870s coin was found, I will have this as a keepsake (it's a play on words) to remind me of the town where I was born (in the George Street maternity home, but they knocked that down to build Georgian Way).

  8. ooppss. sorry should have posted it...

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…
