Whisper it quietly ......

Hallo again everyone!  Yes, whisper it very quietly, but we are in the final week of January.  Yay, I’m doing a happy dance here in deepest Devon.  So on Friday, we will be entering the month of February, and already the mornings and evenings are starting to get a tad lighter.  Primroses are in the garden, and lots of bulbs are peeping through already. My winter flowering pansies are still putting on a good show, but we have been pretty fortunate, in that we have only had a couple of frosty mornings so far.  I have a yellow camellia with around 40 buds on it, so I’m really hoping that we don’t suddenly get a hard frost.  Daffodils are now on sale in the shops, which I always think are a real sign of the Spring yet to come.  This photo was taken last year.  It really is like having a little bowl of sunshine in the house.

I realise that there could  well be people reading this, whose Season might be completely the reverse of what we have over here in England.  It’s a funny old world, isn’t it?!  Even here in the UK, the weather can vary tremendously.  I live right down in the South West of England, next to Cornwall, and Devon and Cornwall are amongst the mildest Counties in the Country.  Our flowers are always a few weeks ahead of everyone else.  

Oh! My life has changed somewhat since I last wrote a Blog Post.  I have a little puppy, and he is the cutest little thing.  I have only had him for six days, but he has settled in so well, and is such a good little pup.  This is a completely new experience for me - I was avidly reading a puppy handbook before he arrived, but, really, SO FAR (!), it has been much better than I could have hoped for.  He is a Cavapoo, and a cross between a King Charles Spaniel and a toy poodle, so he will only be a small dog.  But then, I am only a small person, so we will fit together nicely!  I can’t wait until I can take him out to the beach!  At the moment, he can only go in the garden, until he has had all his injections.  Anyway, here he is! 

Who could not love that cute little face?!

Well, I’ll leave you again for now, hoping that all is well in your little corner of the world.  See you again soon!

I love reading, and have done so since I was a little girl.  I’m sure many of you also love settling down with a good book.  Anyway, I came across this quote on Pinterest, and thought it was rather lovely, so decided to share it with you here today ....

Sunday, Sunday....

Hello..... It’s me!  How are you all on this January Sunday?  The celebrations are all over once again, and it’s time to get back to the nitty gritty of life.  Just a short Post today, but I thought I would  drop in at the beginning of 2019, to wish you well for the year ahead. 

Who knows what the year ahead will hold for any of us.  Being now in my 70’s, apart from wishing happiness for my little family, I tend to pray that I will remain in good health. Whenever I’m out on my walks, I never take anything for granted.  I always look around, take in the beauty around me, and be thankful that I can still enjoy those moments. 

I’m sure this new year will bring the usual share of ups and downs. Hopefully, we will have many joyful moments, but the disappointments will be there as well. Sometimes it’s really hard to deal with those disappointments, and we struggle to see the wood for the trees (I think that’s how the saying goes!).  It is at times like that, we have to try to remember what we DO have in our lives, and try to carry on the best way we know how. 

So I’ll leave you again for now, in the hope that this year - no matter how it might have started - will be a good one for all of us. See you again soon ❤️
