I haven't been around on blogger much recently, certainly posting has been a bit intermittent, reading and commenting a bit, though not much, better.
Reason being is I've not taken many photos as I keep forgetting to take my camera out with me.
Another reason is I've been doing a lot of thinking.
Sometimes I do too much of this, well ok just too much idle daydreaming if I'm honest, which then leads to time wasting and hair pulling when I realise how little I get achieved.
I've been thinking about my life in general.
Don't panic this isn't going to turn into a long emotionally charged and heavy post, but 2 years ago I hit 40. 3 days before the big day I had a great picnic with friends and family to celebrate and then 2 days after my birthday life turned upside down (and stayed that way for a very long while) as my Dad was admitted to hospital and then a few weeks later he died.
In a couple of days time I'm hoping to go on another picnic and celebrate my 42nd birthday and I hope that it will signify some kind of mark in tme for me.
I still have a lot of thinking and considering to do.
And a bit of idle day dreaming too!
In the meantime here's a couple of snaps we have managed to take from the last few days.
On Friday S had to go into school dressed as a Super Hero.
A made up one or a well known one.
We made up Princess Power, any excuse to wear her red sparkly skirt to school.
Not shown in the photo is the cape I made from a lace tablecloth with tinsel sewn round the edges as a bit of trimming. Note to self, don't sew tinsel on to anything again!
