Spring has Sprung


Another beautiful sunny warm day.
Spring has Sprung.
Hellebores galore.
Nodding daffodils.
Birds flitting and flirting everywhere.
A quiet half hour sat outside enjoying the warmth from the rays of the sun.
Life feels good.

It Feels Good to Share

It feels good to share with others ...

And now that I've received my elderly person's concessionary bus pass I've just seen this . I now have the desire to travel by rail. All these travellers look far happier than everyone I see standing out in the wind and rain waiting for a bus. Although this was planned and rehearsed for an ad for a mobile phone network I think the rail network should request a share in the ad too. It's a wonderful spectacle.

How I wish I was there - I would have loved to join in. I just love to dance.

Thank Heavens for Football

Thank heavens for football. MyMan is watching Man Utd and some Italian team kick a ball to and fro on some pitch somewhere. As he is happily absorbed in the game I have chance to come onto the blogosphere and cast around to see who has written what and when. I thought this rather charming new blogger - seems to be very youthful techie wise for an 'oldie'.

We've hauled some furniture around and made a wee slot for myself and my computer in the entrance hall under the stairs. I can be seen from the front door but if anyone calls unannounced I going to pretend I'm deaf. When I have a few spare minutes I'm going to make a sign that will tell callers I'm not the 'lady of the house' but the secretary.

I'm looking at all manner of ways of saving time. I now tell the charity shops that I'm a non tax payer just to save the few minutes from completing the tax reclaim form when I drop off donated items. I'm considering showering at night fully dressed so my clothes can be laundered at the same time. I read my book for the reading group while I stir the dinner on the stove. I read the daily paper while I'm on the toilet - after all it's crap news nowadays.
