    Linky was not working with my first effort and I have had to sign in again as MM2.

  3. Is that Larry, my sweet, with Pippa?

    I know the sun is beaming on you for this weekend, Saz. Thinking of you and wishing you warm, well and wonderful with your sunnies on! xox

  4. Hope you all had a good walk. It's been gorgeous weather here today.

  5. Beautiful! I especially love that last shot of the low water.

  6. What a neat little photo story, Maggie. And, my mind must run along the same channels as the commenter above me here because I really loved the last picture in the group.

  7. Looks such a beautiful place :)

  8. That's a beautiful bridge and stream. It's so peaceful there.

  9. That's your man, for real, and did you finally meet? Lovely.

  10. All the more atmospheric for not being close-ups.

  11. did he know you were stalking him? i love the peace and tranquility in these pictures. the bridge is amazing.

  12. What a simply perfect country picture. I love viaduct typed pictures. This one was taken at a beautiful angle..!

  13. Was that really Larry? Seems to have lost a few pounds.

    Lovely pictures really do live in a beautiful part of the country.

  14. Very nice pictures. I always am trailing behind my husband and children taking pictures and as a result have a real soft spot for pictures of them from behind. The ordinary, yet pretty scene with them in the frame always tells a whole story. Excellent post. (haven't been by in a while - I still love your blog :)

  15. BTW this is the centre of the city, a green expanse through the middle, with golf, criket, football and sports arena and lots of open spaces.

  16. Thanks Saz for the lovely photos. These are just beautiful, and I want to see those places for myself. Always rewarding to see places our blog friends have really been.

    It's nice to see your Followers Award here. :)

  17. I love the bridge picture! It is fabulous!

  18. The bridge photograph was lovely, very English.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
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…
