Spring Flowers

I would just like to say thank you for all your kind comments on my last post. They really have encouraged me to continue blogging. I just needed that kickstart to get inspired again and what better way than to celebrate the last day of February with some spring flowers. Spring is well and truly here in my books and few daffodils and some polyanthus really brighten up the home.

Have great week everyone.

A Me Time Weekend!

Hello, how are you all? I’ve been so wrapped up in problems at work that I haven’t really had time to think about blogging. I know I haven’t posted for ages and I’m sorry for neglecting all my bloggy friends but sometimes I find it really hard to get inspired, so much so that I think I might stop blogging. Do you ever feel like that?

This weekend I have had some me time. To hell with the housework, cooking , cleaning, ironing and washing. Yesterday I had a day’s shopping.

I went to Shrewsbury and took my time browsing in ‘out of the way’ shops that I don’t normally have time to shop in. There are a lot of little independent shops in Shrewsbury selling things you don’t normally see in general high street stores. I bought this really pretty jug in a shop called Vintage. They have lots of gorgeous vintage stuff and I could have spent a fortune but then I saw this necklace in Whitestuff and bought that instead.

Something for my summer wardrobe...I bought some espadrille sandals in Next and finally,

some heart door hangers for my new dresser. All in all a very good day.

Today though I’m sitting by the fire with a cup of coffee, Country Living Magazine and a bag of Cadbury’s mini eggs because we’ve had more of this...

...yes it has snowed again so I think I’ll just sit inside and watch it falling.

Hope you all have a good week.

Photo Opportunity

We had more snow here in Shropshire on Sunday. I thought we'd seen the last of it but this little lot wasn't forecast so it came as a bit of a shock. By the afternoon though it has stopped and the sun came out. I went out with my camera and just snapped away. I love taking photographs in the snow as everything looks so different.

Have a great weekend everyone.


I have to tell you about Avatar! If you haven’t seen it yet then do, I’m sure you will be as surprised as I was!

James Cameron’s new film has been receiving a lot of awards and nominations recently so I thought I go along to the cinema to see what all the fuss was about. I went with absolutely no expectations of the film and didn’t have much idea of what it was about. I’m not one for fantastical sci-fi type movies with tons of action and special effects but I have to say, Avatar is now one of my favourite films of all time!

Avatar has to be the most visually spectacular film I have ever seen. The special effects are breathtaking and it is the first film I’ve seen with luminescent visual effects which look stunningly pretty on the big screen. It is utterly captivating and you feel literally immersed in the virtual world of the beautiful planet of Pandora and begin to forget that what you are seeing isn’t real!

If you are not a big fan of fantasy/sci-fi, but enjoy a bit of escapism and a good love story then you will like Avatar. I know I’m sounding like I must have shares in the film or something but I would watch it again in a heartbeat!
