Having read Kate Eastwoods blog Justpootling about the 10 things that make her happy, it got me to thinking about the 10 things that have made me happy lately.
White and Yellow Roses one of my favorite flowers.
White Roses always reminds me of my mum who passed away nearly 24 years ago now.
The Yellow Roses remind me of my friends mum Georgina who was always like my second mum right up until she passed away nearly 4 years ago..
At the beginning of the year I set myself five challenges.
Challenge number 5
To read 13 books from my yet to be read bookshelf by the end of June 2014.
So this is a bit of a Ta Dah moment as I have now completed
number 13 The Fry Chronicles - by Stephen Fry
thus completing this challenge a month a head of schedule.
is to tick of another book from school revisited challenge.
Is to see the first Poppy open in the garden
Is my new bird bath.
He is called the Tree Hugger by Aston Garden Ornaments.
D thinks he's the ugliest thing he's ever seen.
Well he might not be the most handsome but he's definitely my cup of tea as far as little off the wall and quirky goes.
I absolutely love him
My new addition to my dragon family.
He reminds me of one of mine when they were little and didn't want to do something.
'I don't want to and you can't make me'
My new wind chime for my den.
In the days before The Willows we lived for 3 years in the Wolds and regularly saw Barn Owls
It's much flatter where we are in the fens and not so many trees and so to see a Barn Owl is a rarity and I've only ever heard a Tawny owl since we moved here but not seen any in the five years we have been here.
I have been looking for a Wind Chime since the den was put up in October and I have at last found
just the right one. The sound when the winds catches it is beautiful and of course the owl is an added bonus.
Has to be my beautiful 4 paws
Mr. B has been in my den with me today and was making himself very comfortable.
Look at this gorgeous boy.
He's licking his lips in anticipation of getting his treat.
and our old boy of the pack.
They have all been to the groomers this week for their short back and sides ready for the summer.
A very naughty but nice cake.
Has to be my family.
I am so very proud of all of them and love them all so very much.
So what 10 things have made you happy lately.
