Work has taken over, as it invariably does. I’m very fortunate that I love my work. I’m also fortunate that I love the simple things in life; music, reading, eating, being with family or close friends. I don’t demand a lot.
I’m happy that I have found a swimming buddy; we encourage each other to go swimming twice a week after work. I would find that difficult if I was on my own.
This pleased me today also – the smell of the washing when I brought it in to air on the radiator – heavenly!
Don’t you just love that smell? The simple things…..
Some random photos from my memory stick:
The fridge at work. The idea is that we bring back a ‘tasteless’ magnet when we go on holiday. Well, we have some pretty tasteless ones, so that worked…. But they do make us laugh.
Part of the ‘New York Skyline’ – actually a salt and pepper set, again, quite tasteless, but again looks kind of cool in the shadows when the sun is behind them. Always makes me smile when I go into the kitchen and spot them. Well, it takes all sorts I suppose….
And, for good measure, an actual skyline photograph;
Nearer to home : Stones found half way down Fairfield Fell in The Lake District. Cute, eh? I wonder who did that, and who it was done for.
Picture of Big Ben:
Picture of the paralympics:
Walking in Yorkshire..
Quite easy to work out which fridge magnets are mine then….
I like October. It’s one of my favourite months. Here’s a peek at the calendar picture:
There is still so much growing, as another little peek at the wildflower garden will show:
However, my pots are now sadly empty ……
Well, to be honest, there wasn’t much in them in the first place. I’ve made a target for myself for next year, which is to get my garden sorted out. I’m really going to try, and prevent this from happening:
a sweet little rusty shovel that has been shamefully neglected. Makes a nice picture, though…..
