My little Cacti has finally come back to life Hipeeee. Very cold here today 2 c and is staying that way up untill Tuesday at least. So I will be heading off to the kitchen to rustle something tasty for later on tonight. My mixture has finally given up the ghost though , so will have to carry on without it. Not even sure what to look for now so many different contraptions on the market. So on that note do have a wonderful weekend stay warm and keep smiling. :)

Drifting Back...

This is a shot of the Peacock when he used to visit my garden enjoying the sunshine.
I was drifting back again this Morning of thoughts of my Auntie Hilda, while I was sipping my cuppa coffee. Remembering the times when she used to pop on a train from Kings Cross to Newcastle to pay us a visit. This must have been the late 50's early 60's , it didn't seem to matter to her what the weather was like. Nothing seemed to deter her at all, we were all clearing the snow and ice from the steps and pathway to our door before her arrival. There she was as bold as life stepping out of the taxis, smiling face with that touch of powder on her nose. Auntie was an early riser so a nice cup of tea was on it's way up to me the next morning, lovely . I took a sup and ahhh! yak what was that she had mistakenly put salt in the tea instead of sugar. Mum probably kept the salt in a jug or something I really don't know. Or maybe it was semi dark at the time , but oh how we laughed after the event. We loved her visits as I have said before in previous posts. I have always remembered that to this day , I don't know why it popped in my mind today.

Today very frosty -2 last night,but lovely sunshine here at the moment , coldest night of the week so far. Wile-e still reluctant to go out and when he does he wants to come straight back in. Friday again where has the week gone , although Monday I had lunch with my lady friends . Very enjoyable and a good laugh we plan to go out again next Month.
Enjoy your Weekend stay warm and take care. Oh if you remember a funny event from your past no matter how small, do share it with us.Bye...

We have had so much rain the Pond is up to the overflow, the ducks are enjoying it though. Especially after all that frost and frozen pond not so long ago. It hasn't been this high for at least three years. See how the boat has drifted underneath the walking plank , and got stuck. No boats rides for a while folks sorry.

Wile-e my greyhound has gone into hibernation I do believe , he just doesn't like all this wet and windy weather and refuses to budge. LOL he has just lay on his blanket and not moved.

Spring isn't that far away someone said and lots to do in the run up , I especially want to do my own flowers so it's seed trays at the ready. I think I must have spent a fortune last year on potted one's. So this year I am buying seeds and planting my own. I love Dalia's they just seem to go on and on. Such an array of colour , and plenty of fresh herb's. I shall be planting them in buckets pots and anything I can get my hands on , even empty tins. The thought of getting out there in the fresh air wonderful.

What ever you are doing this weekend enjoy it and stay happy till the next time bye for now.
Oh and that's Billy my budgie still chatting away happily, did he just say give is a kiss !!
