Me & Mine: May

So its almost the end of June and I'm just getting round to posting my Me and Mine May picture - life eh? This was the most glorious of days, coincidently our 8 year wedding anniversay (I really don't feel old enough!

My Month of February

January has a pretty bad reputation as a hard month, but to be honest I find February a much harder slog, cold and not quite yet spring and certainly with our family, plagued by those pesky school germs (chicken pox anyone?!) it's so easy to see it as a write off. Most of my favourite blog posts to read are the positive ones that celebrate the small things in life, happy lists, little loves and many others.
