Summer Sunshine - The Downside

Yes I know, it's not actually summer yet and nor will it be for another month, but someone forgot to send the memo to Mother Nature and frankly, that is just fine with me.

And yet, there is a problem with the sun raising it's beautiful head and shining upon us. No, it's not the heat, nor the risk of sunburn; you just slather on the sunscreen and hide in the shade. Nor is it the pesky bugs that like to take a nibble out of you. No it is far, far worse than that, at least it is for many of us ladies.

Celebrating Wednesday's #25

Hello and welcome back to our little celebration corner of the blog. Today is going to be just a little bit different. I had planned to give this segment a miss this week, mainly because I really wasn't too keen on any of the days that are being celebrated. However, in light of recent events, I feel there is something that is important and truly worthy of celebration...

A Special Friend

I was talking to D yesterday, or rather 'Whatsapping' him, as you do, and the conversation we were having reminded me of a certain friend that a much younger Miss. L had. This friend was very important to her and was almost always around; rarely was there a time when we were without said friend. However, as the years passed, that little friend gradually spent less time with us and eventually didn't visit anymore.

It's Mine!

Oh little orange me is such a handsome boy. Me do love to look at the pictures mummy takes of me and see just how handsome I is. Me is also a very important little boy. I am the bestest doggy in the whole widest world, me know because my peoples are always telling me.

This weekend me not have my girls at home, so mummy took me to see nanny and grandad. Little orange me loves going to see them because them spoil me still not so keen on Winnie though. Me not really sure why her is still there. Mummy says it's because Winnie is nanny and grandad's little orange doggy, but me should be the only orange doggy. Still, me is trying super hard to be nice to her and to play with her, but me is not going to let her think her own the house, just because her live there. Oh no!

Little Dragonfly

Dragonflies. They're so pretty aren't they, and I get so excited when I see one buzz past on a warm, sunny day. However, they are so much more than just pretty. They're pretty darn good predators, and given that one thing they like to munch on is the pesky mosquito, I am definitely promoting them to top of my favourite insects list (or at least I would, if I had one).

They also hold great symbolic meaning for many people, two of which are strength and change. Which leads us very nicely on to what I've been up to, but first a wee bit of background.

Passion Fruit

 Apologies to anyone reading this post and expecting a lovely informative piece on horticulture, you will be sorely disappointed. I am not well versed in all things flora and fauna, and have previously alluded to the fact that I can't even keep a simple pot plant alive. Nope this post is about gifts. To be more precise, gifts from my other half. It is not a rant, it is not a complaint because D, as well as being all round amazing, is super thoughtful and great at choosing gifts. So I guess you could say, this is a huge public thank you.

Celebrating Wednesday's #24

Hurrah! It's Wednesday again which means we're on the downhill journey to the weekend! It also means we can have our little midweek celebration, just because, no excuse needed. I'm going to be honest with you here, and please do keep it amongst ourselves, no wagging tongues...but this week, well it was all a little uninspiring. However, thanks to my love of all things cake, I had to go with our chosen topic...
