Well hello again. I know I'm late posting this week but I do have an
excuse reason.....but first I would like to thank Angela, Kate and Neet for helping me spread a few smiles last week. Some weeks the numbers joining in drop and I did have a brief moment last week when I thought I would stop doing a Friday smile post but then I had so many smiles during the last week that, if for no other reason other than to record them for myself, I just have to share them. If my posts just make one other person smile then I've acheived my goal.
So? What's been making me smile?
Like the twins, little Steve will be starting school in September and he tried his uniform on to show me what a smart boy he will be.....I just love this photo, it really shows Steve's character.
There will be one very lucky teacher getting this young man in their class....and one Nanny feeling rather emotional about this next step in the lives of three of her grandchildren.....just as well little Bert will hopefully be putting in an apearance in September too eh? [that's the affectionate name I have given to my next little grandson until his mummy and daddy anounce his real name :-) ]
You will all know that we moved into our new home less than 2 years ago and we inherited a
well establisted totally overgrown and neglected back garden. We have really enjoyed finding out what was growing there and moving many plants to make the garden ours. One of the plants remained a mystery until last weekend mainly because everyone that saw it suggested that we could be growing our own canabis. :-) We have waited to see what would develop and whether it would flower but until now it hasn't so last weekend I took several pictures and a cutting up to a garden centre to see what they thought it was. We had such a chuckle whilst there but thankfully I was released on bail as it was confirmed to be a Stinking Helebore that at some point should have green flowers in the Winter/Spring.....and it certainly lives up to it's name.
Finally my reason for my slowness at posting today.... Our laptop has automatically upgraded to Windows 10 and it's a real pain to get used to the changes...it seems slower or is that just me? It has taken me til now to upload the next batches of pics!!....and in my eyes at least they are worth seeing cos they have given me so much to smile about [in more ways then one lol].
Yesterday I had two gorgeous firemen here all day....No they weren't putting out a fire [but they did cause me to get a little hot and flustered at times :-) ]. They were here laying us a new patio in readiness for the arrival of little Milly....the step out of the back door was too high for her to climb out of [I struggled!!] and we had managed with just a bit of hardcore up til now. So here you go.....the before pics....
We have re-used all the slabs that were here before so they need cleaning but we really love the finished results. All we need to do now is to finish off the steps / slope / bank on the right side of the door for ease of access the the lawn but we have made plans for that ....and no doubt I will share a pic when it's done :-)
There you go....those are my smiles for this week. Please share yours and help me to make the world a happier place to be by linking them up below.
