The Day Off full of fun distractions

I'm on a delightful day off today. No work, no deadlines, no clients.

Instead, I'm doing housework, baking, cooking for the freezer, taking dogs for walks and writing my blog!

Also, I've been spending too much time on youtube. For all cat lovers out there (and yes, I am definitely one) please enjoy these two videos, if you haven't seen them before. I laughed so much watching both of them I had tears running down my face. Brilliant!

Hope your week is going swingingly so far. xox

Misty Sunday morning

The past 3 weeks have had some lovely moments and some not-so-lovely moments...but I won't be talking about them!

Here are some of the happier times so far in April:

Walking through our forestry in the early morning mist...enchanting...

The tiny little egg we found, all on it's own, nestled in a bed of leaves and moss...

Discovering that vegan double chocolate fudgey cupcakes taste amazing!

Re-reading Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers again. A favourite book from my childhood.

Hoping you have an amazing week, full of magical moments and happy surprises! xox

Good Friday in Ireland

It's a damp, wet, mossy, ferny morning here in Ireland - I love it! The wind howled all night with the rain battering the roof and kept me awake most of the night.

Just off to have a French coffee in my Italian coffee maker (which is supposed to be for espressos but we drink the coffee in big mugs!) Possibly some French toast to go with, then a spot of house tidying this Good Friday.

Happy Easter to all with a wealth of Easter eggs finding their way to you! xox
