“I figured something out. The future is unpredictable.”

My last post was about Grandad and was on Father’s day – so it’s only fitting my next post starts with him as well! It’s funny how priorities and outcomes change as time goes on. Last year, when he went into hospital, our end goal was for him to go home. Gradually we’ve had to refocus our targets and have learned that sometimes the next best thing will have to be acceptable. The good news is that Grandad is coming ‘home’ in some respects, to a local nursing home. I hope that nobody has to go through seven months of hospitals because it has been gruelling.

The weather has been great. June into July was warm and we’ve just had the occasional (much needed) bouts of rain. I don’t recall when the last ‘proper’ Summer like this was, but it was way too long ago! Maisy has been once again enjoying a quick spell with the hose pipe…

One of my closest friends gets married in a couple of weeks and I had my first experience of a Hen do! It was…hilarious…

That pretty much sums up the photographs from the last little while, I’ve mostly taken iPhone shots here and there and Wedding season is in full swing so there’s that to contend with as well!

“Hello Spring”

I don’t know why I’ve found it harder to blog weekly this year compared to when I was blogging daily last year! It has been a while – but I have taken lots of photographs I just haven’t had the time to share them. I’ve been battling a cold and whilst that was attacking me the flu decided to hit on Friday night giving me a delightful bank holiday weekend of minimal sleep – what hurt even more was that chocolate is making me cough so no Easter eggs here (sort of!)


I ended up trying to sleep on the sofa which didn’t really work out especially when Maisy thought it would be great fun to join me…


Today however I decided it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself and as the temperature hit 16 degrees c it was perfect weather for getting out there and enjoying the sun. We took Maisy to the meadow where she met up with Buddy and they tore around like crazy pretending that they hadn’t seen each other the day before. Buddy taught her how to get confident with the water and with a lot of tennis ball coaxing she was in and out of it constantly!

We’ve worked a bit on the garden, our Rhubarb is growing nicely and even waves at us when we look out the bedroom window (it is a bit windy!) We have a Clematis left to plant and just finished planting our Bay Tree yesterday..

Maisy has more or less behaved herself although there have been a few dubious moments. She has adopted a new chair, one we more or less use for putting things on. It’s the smallest chair in the house but she insists on squishing her butt into it..

And that’s about it for the last few weeks photographs. We photographed my Parents open day and likely if you follow facebook you will have seen a few updates about that. Bring on the sunshine for more outdoors photography – and Happy Easter!
