Time to catch up


I thought that it was about time that I caught up with my little blog and posted a few pictures before I forget what I've been up to. Sadly for quite a while I have been feeling like this


and nothing that I did would make it go away. Not every day has been bad, just enough to make me feel low and try as I might I couldn't snap out of it. But today is a good day so here I am playing catch up.

At the beginning of May our youngest daughter Rachel got married, it was a lovely day and the sun shone just enough to be able to take some outdoor photos, but as I haven't got my copy of the wedding cd yet I can only show a couple that my nephew took.


Rachel and Darren


and a very rare one of me and hubby together.

I have been stitching and believe it or not I have actually finished Beatrix.



I put our initials and our three daughters on instead of the charted ones, I thought after all the hours I'd spent on it I was allowed to make it mine.

Sunflower Inn is also coming along and hopefully it won't be too long before there's another finish.


And this was a present from DD Rachel who also likes to stitch.


Grandma and Grandpas house, a Lilliput Lane kit.

The garden is lovely this year, well the flower garden is. The vegetable plot at the bottom of the garden has been left as I just didn't have the heart to do it but we have decided to grass it over at the end of the year and just extend the flower garden, one less thing to worry about.

Before I go here are just a few photos of the garden.







Thank you for taking the time to visit, hopefully I'll be back soon,

love and hugs,

It's horrible when you can't shake the lows. Hopefully brighter days are ahead for you.

Sue sorry to hear you have been feeling like Eeyore lately, I felt the same about this time last year , it passes but in its own time. I know when my daughter got married I had the empty nest low and so maybe it is a bit of that too.
Love the pics of the wedding , the garden is looking pretty and I do not blame you for extending the flowers , I know you cannot eat them but they do lift the spirits the way a cabbage cannot! Look forward to seeing Sunflower Inn in the parlour. Well done on your finishes ,take good care of yourself hope today is a good day too.
Hugs
