How time slips by.

(Picture by Google images)

That's how old my son is today, and that's quite frightening how fast the years have gone by. So if you have young children at the moment, enjoy every second because before you know it they turn into teenagers and are lost forever, well, for a while anyway.. I miss how Sage would throw his arms around my neck and tell me constantly how much he loves me, I'm lucky if i get a grunt now.. Heheheheheh, but i soooo love him and i know he feels the same about me.

The weathers shit here in the UK, some parts of the North have snow again, but mainly we have gale winds and rain, its the end of March and we normally have wonderful spring weather by now..

Iv been spending a lot of time in Blogland these past few days, it gets quite addictive doesn't it?, i jump from one link to another getting lost within worlds for hours at a time and there are some wonderful blogs out there, so each month I'm going to mention a blog and leave a link so others can enjoy getting lost in another world for a while.

I'm also still having trouble putting up some new photos and its driving me mad, i can upload them to the laptop but then when i want to share them either on here or my face book they never load and theres always a problem, so if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong, please tell me... Have a wonderful wet Wednesday and i will see you all soon..

Spiders and Daylight

Last night we took part in the Earth Hour protest and we were all snuggled down for the evening, me, i was ready to watch Lost and Sage, well he was lost within the World Wide Web. Half way through, Kit needed feeding and while i missed the spider the first time there was no mistaking the beast when i returned to the cupboard to replace Kits food, Eek, it was massive and had only been inches away from my face!

Now i love all creatures but spiders really do freak me out and the bigger they are the more I'm scared, so, I'm sorry to say the hoover came out and the lights came back on.

British Summer time began this morning in my household, all the clocks have gone forward an hour, which means we lose an hour in bed tomorrow morning but we gain an extra hour of daylight this evening, so i guess Spring is finally here and summer is a matter of a few months away... Enjoy the rest of your weekend..

Earth Hour Sat March 27th 2010

(Picture from Google images)

At 8.30 pm millions will switch their lights off for one hour across the globe, joining in unity to highlight the plight of the earths struggle to deal with us humans and the pollution we send out, which is slowly chocking our planet to death. To find out more check out this site and please do your bit for the only home we have.
Like the new look, yea, me too... The weathers been..... wet! But then it will help the garden to blossom, mind you the suns out at the moment, but i know we have rain on its way later, so i must venture out into the unknown before then.. I'm having trouble loading photos from my camera onto my blog, i think they are too big, but i don't know how to make them smaller, and its been driving me mad!
It's Sages 14' th next Wednesday, i can not believe how fast those years have gone by, and its only a matter of a few more before he travels his path as a man! I was watching a program on the TV the other night about Americans that have baby monkeys and treat them almost like their children, and i fell in love with the idea, but then the breeders take the baby away from their mothers and to me that's cruel. Monkeys feel that lost of a child like we do and i found the whole idea disgusting..
The Daffs have opened their heads in the garden and iv noticed the birds preparing their nests, the clocks go forward and hour at the weekend and Spring will have finally begun her journey to Summer and before we know it we shall be basking in Midsummer!
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sun and appreciate what you have....

Spring is here..

It's the Spring Equinox today, which means Spring has finally arrived and the daylight will get a little longer each evening until Midsummer, it's time to sow your seeds in the garden as well as in your life... Beltane is not too long now and Midsummers only around the corner. I thank the Lady for the blessings upon the land, the newborn animals and the nesting off the birds. The buds have arrived and will open in a matter of weeks. Have a wonderful weekend and may the sun shine on you all... Blessings for the Spring..

Bloggers got a cob on!

Iv been trying to upload some photos here for days now but blogger seems to be taking forever to load them and in the end iv given up. The weathers been dry here and so iv managed to get into the garden and sow some seeds. So far iv done quite a few, don't worry they are nice and safe from the frosts within the greenhouse. I will keep trying to put up the pictures within the next couple of days. Enjoy the sunshine if your lucky enougth to have it..

A welcome visitor

Look what i saw at the bottom of my garden yesterday, a mouse. This picture is actually from Google and is in fact a Dormouse, but nonetheless, i have a different species of wildlife in my garden that i did not know was there. I'm so glad that the wildlife area is working out so well...

Iv a massive bruise on my forehead, iv been putting up a blind in my bedroom and being the numpty that i am i smashed my head straight into the wooden curtain pole and boy did i see stars!....

The weather is amazing here in Gloucestershire, a little cold and we are still getting the frosts at night, but the sun is out and that's good enougth for me. Have a wonderful day, i hope the sun is shining upon you...

Springs on her way..

Where to start? It might be a while before i can put up some pictures, due to the fact that i now have a new laptop and no photos in my files!... Now whats been happening in my world i hear you say?....

Iv been getting the garden ready for the new planting season. I managed to buy a mini greenhouse, rather than cluttering up all my window sills within the house, and its great, i highly recommend you to get one if space is limited within the garden, and a bargain at £12.00 from Wilkinson's!

Iv decided to grow some potatoes and some french beans this year as well as my usual bounty of Tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, lettuces, spring onions, and blueberries. I'm also tempted to go and get a raspberry bush and a hazelnut.

Home life is good, I'm feeling really good at the moment. The last year brought some challenges and i shall discuss these at another date, and boy is there something to say... I'm in the process of looking for part time work and that in itself is a challenge. For every 10 CV's i send out i will get about 2 call backs, and not even a note to say thanks but no thanks, that can be disheartening, but you just keep going...

So, until next time, this is your first installment, hopefully i shall have some pictures to post next time, in the meantime have a fantastic day!...
