Not an awful lot to report, but I’ll do it anyway

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!

ImageDon’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.Image

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;Image

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.

Walking in Yorkshire..

Quite easy to work out which fridge magnets are mine then….

October

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:

Image

However, my pots are now sadly empty ……

Image

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…..
