This week's happy things that are making me..er..happy.
I have zilch/zero birds in my garden which will come as no surprise to those of you who read this blog regularly. I don't know what happened this summer to my sparrows, but I did spend the summer evenings in the garden with my face skywards as soon as I heard the screaming overhead. Yes, I would stand marvelling at the acrobatics of the swifts and we even had some nesting in our eaves but only saw them once. Now I have more birds on our fridge than we have outside (not counting pesky seaguls and magpies!)
Look at these magnets I found on Saturday. I just HAD to have them. The price made Anth wince. Oops.
::My Own Birds::
I can't look at this photo taken on Lucy's 18th birthday without smiling and my heart feeling all mushy. I love my babies. Each one of them. So much. And the best thing is that they love each other. I really love that.
(how and when did they get so big??)
::My Gospel Choir::
Yes, I have found a choir. Not quite the cathedral choir I wanted (tongue-in-cheek!!) but it is just down the road and Lucy comes along with me. We have only been once so we will see but it's a start isn't it?
A Greengate one no less. Only trouble is I won't let anyone stand on it...
::Matthew's New Talent::
Bless him - this summer my brother was desperate to have a go on the organ at my aunt Madelyn's church. She arranged for him to be able to do this and it was lovely to watch him try and master the ancient instrument. He did really well - and no - there was not a single note of Coldplay that came from those pipes!
::It's On It's Way!!::
No,not the fair but the C word!!!
::The English Countryside in Late Summer::
::Our Pink Bed::
Now the photos are showing the pink to be more 'Barbie' than it really is. It's true tone is much softer and creamer (gee, I sound like Gregg Wallace from Masterchef!)
And I can only show you half of the bed as the other half is in a terrible mess. Sorry. I'm also loving my newly thrifted retro pillowcases which actually tones very well with the new paint job despite what the photo tells you.
Anyway, enough happy things for one day. If you would like to share your happy things in the comments feel free. xxxxxxxxxx
