st patrick's day

Happy St Patrick's Day to all the Irish as well as those who are Irish at Heart!! This is a day that has come to be associated with everything Irish, from anything green to shamrock and luck. It is also a time for bit of Irish music, food and fun! So I have dedicated a green theme collage to celebrate this special day.

1. I love a cuppa after some cakes.
2. James in his green t-shirt 
3. Daffodils from my garden 4. An elephant tea light bought from a Thai restaurant

Little P

I was tidying up my photograph folders and came across this particular one that both James and I love very much. Our little Shih Tzu, Princess had been with us just over a month and only weighed  around 1kg when this picture was taken.

We had gone for a nature walk for the afternoon but we ended carrying her most of the journey. She was so little that we were worried she might get injured somehow. Very protective parents! As you can see P was rather happy sitting on James' shoulder.

The little t-shirt was her first outfit with "I love parties" written on it. It doesn't fit her anymore and is more like a midriff for her now. ((*.*)) P has brought a lot of joy to our home and we treasure the time we spend together. She is such a sweetheart, loves giving and receiving cuddles!


Spring is just around the corner!

The day everyone has been waiting for is nearly here! It was just gorgeous with sunshine throughout the day and my Daffodils should blossom in a week or two just in time for the first day of Spring. I was so excited that I had only a t-shirt, short sleeve big knit jumper and jeans on when going into town this afternoon. It was slightly chilly around the arms but I didn't care and had enough of wrapping up like a mummy. 

I wanted to enjoy the most of the sunshine and decided to venture out to the near by farmland. I drove pass the area numerous times and always wanted to take some pictures of it. Today couldn't have been a better day to explore this beautiful place. 

Spring is such a nice time of the year to kick start the New Year resolutions that have been forgotten, clear out the old clothes that you are still hogging on years after years, enjoy some healthy habits like walking or just simply smile more often!
