The Snow Came Falling…

I’m forever seeing the internet (social media) filled with photos and videos of white winters; friends who live abroad and find themselves (sometimes) knee deep in snow, putting a positive spin on the cold weather and taking every opportunity to get that perfect , artistic photo. So this year, when my home town had a little snow fall, I couldn’t wait to get outside with dogs and have a bit of fun! And get lots of snapshots too, of course.

The Month of January

“January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow” – Sara Coleridge 

Well it didn’t quite snow here in Southport, not like some parts of the North, but glow my fingers did as this has been one very chilly January!

I’m not quite sure where these last 31 days have gone, but I do know that it’s been a jam-packed month and I thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to.

The Bug that Bugs You.

I absolutely hate being ill. I’m run down with a bug, a not so nice one known as tonsillitis!  After being sent home early from work on Saturday night, then again yesterday afternoon, I finally gave in this morning and went to see the doctor. He was not best impressed that I had waited to come and see him – I hate bothering people – and he was rather shocked at the size of my tonsils!

I don’t mean to complain as I know there are much worse things in life, but it’s not te get a little bit grumpy when you’re stuck inside all day.

My furry friend was not so impressed with me today!

I did have a good clean around the house and have finally started catching up on the world of blogging –it’s been a while – and I did manage a very short walk with the dogs. Against doctor’s (and mother’s) orders, but I couldn’t resist the look on the little faces!

What do you do when you’re feeling under the weather? Any suggestions on what I could try tomorrow?

Happy Monday Everyone!

Memories of a Sunday

After reading A Perfect Sunday on Sophie’s blog, I was inspired to have a go at jotting down some of my happy Sunday memories. Although Sunday isn’t my favourite day, over the years it’s definitely proved to be a very good day and has provided me with many unforgettable moments; some of which, I can share with you today.

The Next door Neighbour

via Daily Prompt: Neighbors

Having not posted in quite a while, I couldn’t have stumbled across a better word prompt to help me get back into the swing of things today.

Neighbours, the people next door, maybe someone with whom you create a beautiful friendship or the person you never see because they hide behind their twitching curtains. Whatever the situation, I’m sure we all have a story or two to share about are neighbours…

And The Rain Came Pouring Down

“It’s looking more like autumn than summer – we’ve swapped sandals for umbrellas.” – Laura Tobin, Good Morning Britain

Once again, I find myself wrapped up tight inside my winter coat and fighting a losing battle against strong autumnal-like (yes,that’s right!) winds. Gone have the sunshine and off-the-shoulder tops, as we’ve seen the return of thick jumpers. Even the scarves are back out!
