Another year older


I celebrated another birthday this week 🎂  It was just a normal work day and then my lovely mum, my aunt and 2 of my boys came to visit at night.  OH was working away so I hadn't planned anything fancy.  Mum brought a selection of buffet foods and pizza for the boys so it was a lovely easy night.  I even had a GF birthday cake!


Imagine my surprise when these gorgeous flowers arrived at work for me!! Most unlike OH but a lovely gift that really made my day 💑 And it gave the kids something to talk about!! 


Today was a beautiful sunny day.  A tropical 17 degrees C!!  The girls had a lovely time free ranging while I potted up some blackcurrant bushes and did a bit of weeding.  This is them sharing a dust bath.  I even had my lunch outside!


And Emma just loves lying in the sunshine as long as she has company.  She's happy to be outside with me when I'm just pottering but every time I went inside she followed me!

The clocks go forward tonight ⏰ Even though we lose an hour it really makes a difference getting up in the mornings.  Spring is on the way and it's the last week of term. I can just about hang on for 5 more teaching days then I have 2 weeks and a day off! 🎉🎉🎉

  2. Happy birthday! It has been lovely today, we managed to eat outside too, It has been cathartic being able work in the soil and sow seeds.

  5. Glad the sun was out for your birthday :-)

    Our dogs are the same lounge around in the sun but then if I go inside for something they follow me in and then back out again. I feel guilty for disturbing them.
