Back Online!

I have been trying to get back into this blog for ages; forgot which email I had used; whichever I used it wouldn’t let me in… you know the scenario, we’ve all been there!!! Anyway today I tried again and it let me straight in! I’m a big believer in omens, and obviously today is…

Spring arrives, despite Storm Ciara

Storm Ciara thundered across the UK yesterday, causing havoc in large parts of the British Isles and Ireland, but nature carries on regardless, and Spring is definitely on the way. My mum’s garden is a blaze of colour already!

Scruffy finds first signs of Spring!

Scruffy dog was so excited to find these daffodils on his walk near Newport, Wales yesterday!!! Daffodils are the official Flower of Wales and by the end of the month the fields, road verges and every spare piece of ground should be covered in them!

Work in Progress

Loving creating these masks, have more feathers and sparkly things arriving today with a bit of luck!

Laser Lightshow: Chase&Status ft. Emeli Sande

I did this video some time ago but thought it was worth sharing on here, I absolutely love this song:  ‘Love Me More’ by Chase & Staqtus, ft. Emeli Sande.  The laser itself was designed by a friend of mine and is unique in the way it bends the led light.  He also provided the…

Arum Lily

I have always loved these lillies, and now I have one in my bathroom!!!! Good Omen! 🙂

Scruffy on holiday!

Day 1: Scruffy slips past hubbie as he opens the back door briefly and makes a dash for it, up the lane. I go out to see where hubbie has got to and am greeted with the sight of him walking back down the hill, in the rain, in his dressing gown and slippers! Meanwhile…

Meet Izzy

We think Izzy had been used for breeding.  When she came to us she was still lactating, but were told she was going to be put down the next day, as she was too old to have more puppies. 😦 For almost a year she had no idea how to play, she cowered if she…

Brecon Beacons, UK

On route to my mum’s today, I had the privilege of driving across the Brecon Beacons, a range of mountains stretching from the centre to the south of Wales. After a few days of heavy rain showers, the streams and waterfalls look magnificent, zig-zagging  down the sides of the mountains.  The road has been cut…

Unbelievable!

WOW!!! Just spent 7 hours watching the whole 8 episodes of ‘Unbelievable’ on Netflix! It’s like a good book you just can’t put down! UNBELIEVABLE follows the true story of a series of rapes that took place in Washington state and Colorado between 2008 and 2011. I was urged to watch it by a friend…

A sad, yet positive day

Today an old friend posted a FB video to his friends, so say that his cancer has spread and there is nothing more they can do. I haven’t seen this friend for years, he was part of our ‘gang’ when I was younger, but I have great memories of that time and of him. He…

Red kites of Wales, UK

I absolutely love these beautiful birds of prey and have taken hundreds, if not thousands, of photos over the years. When I lived in Somerset, England, there were only 3 pairs of Red Kites nesting in the UK, and they were protected 24/7 by the army. Now they are regular visitors and are spreading across…
