I have been admiring the beautiful photos at the header of some of my friends' Blogs, thinking how wonderful they were. So much so, that you will see that I have made my own inadequate little effort at trying to compose a lovely picture and am now revealing my new look Blog! Ta Da! Hope you like it, although I suspect it might confuse a few of you when you first open it up! I've been blogging for almost six months now, so time for a change I thought.
In part, this new photo is in honour of my dear blogging friend from Australia, Natasha at 5 Minutes Just For Me. The photos at the top of her Blog and those in her actual posts were always nothing less than stunning, and I often told her so!
Imagine my surprise when reading my blog roll yesterday, to find a post from Natasha, saying "Goodbye". I'm sure she won't mind me sharing with you her thoughts - Natasha had well over 700 Followers, so she was a very well thought of blogging friend.
Natasha explained that her and her family were off to the beach for a break this weekend, and all she could think of was how was she going to manage her blog whilst she was away - when would she get back to everyone; she would still have to leave comments etc. etc.
Natasha was also thinking about her Sunday Song feature, which she started up and which so many people linked up to, to listen to all the wonderful different songs each Sunday.
She decided that enough was enough, that she was going to have to spend more time with her family and friends and that meant getting away from the computer!
Natasha didn't leave an opportunity to comment with that particular post, but I am pleased to say that people have started going to her older post and have left lovely comments for her there. I explained that I knew exactly where she was coming from, and that I certainly couldn't be going on my blogging journey if I had a young family to cater for as well.
Anyway, I wish Natasha well. I hope she can now enjoy her family and friends to the full - she is not disappearing, because she said that she will still be reading her favourite blogs.
Here is the beautiful header from the top of Natasha's blog :
It pains me to finish on a downbeat note, but just what is going on with the weather at the moment? Last week, we had lovely sunshine all week, and the temperatures were rising. Now, just a week later, as I write this, the snow has been falling heavily for the past few hours here in Devon , and they have forecast that it is going to be snowing heavily all over this coming weekend. Eeeek! My family from France are due to arrive here next Friday, so I do hope that it will have cleared by then :(
It's hard to believe it's April, isn't it, looking at all that snow.
