Wonderful Wednesday 12 December 2018

These pics were actually taken a few weeks ago – but not in summer as they might seem – just back in early November when we had that random heatwave. Feels like a distant memory now though as I’m snuggled up listening to Christmas music on my lovely Roberts digital radio (thanks Mr. Roast Chicken…

Wonderful Wednesday 7 November 2018

Hello one and all, and welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday. I’m in my stride at the moment, and a lot of that has to do with this being a lovely time of year. It’s all about new beginnings and throwing out the old. Like the trees, it’s a good time to reflect on the past…

Wonderful Wednesday 31 October 2018

Wonderful Wednesday has rolled around again, and I’ve been a little haphazard with it, sometimes scribbling away regularly and other times leaving big chunks in between my musings. These last few weeks have been the latter. But it does feel good to list the lovely. Namely: 1. The nip in the air. THE best time…

Wonderful Wednesday 19 September 2018

Oh Lake District you continue to delight and revitalise me. When I’m down in the dumps, knackered, grumpy or frustrated (or all of the above) you never fail to bring a smile to my little face. There has NEVER been a time when I haven’t come away from you feeling better. Even though your main…

Wonderful Wednesday 1 August 2018

And it’s a particularly wonderful one, as I’m just back from a good, restful week away in the sun which did me the WORLD of good. We haven’t had a hot holiday for ages, so this recent escape to Northern France was mucho welcome. I even have tanned feet. FEET! Here’s what I particularly loved:…

Hola one and all! How are we all? I hope everyone who reads this is spending time enjoying the little happy things. They’re what make the world go round, don’t ya know? Here’s what’s been tickling me lately: 1. A sweet evening reading with the window open. To be honest, I was daydreaming more than…

Wonderful Wednesday 20 June 2018

It’s still important to make note of the little things 🙂 Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Time. I feel like my life has calmed down a lot lately. I’m no longer chasing my tail and feel I have more time. We’ve made a family decision that, within the bounds of our comparatively…

I’m all for finding the lovely little things that make me smile and remembering that I’ve got a whole lorra loveliness to be thankful for. And here’s what made the cut this week:…

Wonderful Wednesday 25 April 2018

Eh Oh ladies and gents. Hope you’re all fine and dandy on this lovely jubly Wednesday. It’s apparently the most depressing day of the week. Too far from the last weekend and too long to wait until the upcoming weekend. I can believe that. And so I’ll be forever grateful to Sally for giving and…

Wonderful Wednesday 28 March

Happy Wonderful Wednesday everyone. What’s been happening? I’m collecting all kinds of happy thoughts this week after a BUSY spell. I really don’t like being busy. I like to catch my breath each day and notice what I’m doing. I was once making arrangements to be picked up by someone on the way to a…

Wonderful Wednesday 21 February 2018

I’m writing this Wonderful Wednesday post on returning from a blissful week in the Scottish Highlands, where the sea sparkled and the sand shone. Now it’s back to normal, but that’s not really so bad, and there are plenty of happy things to notice, if you take the trouble. 1. The birds are back! Their…

Wonderful Wednesday 31 January 2018

Wow – even January is whizzing by for me this year – anyone feel the same? Maybe it’s because the weather hasn’t been quite as atrocious as usual! Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Getting out on a good long walk. We walked all the way along Grasmere’s shores a few days ago,…
