Beautiful flowers from my neighbour
An old photo found in a book
Looking for something to read
My neighbour brought in these beautiful flowers, they are such a cheerful flower I have decided to have another go at growing them. We always tried when the children were little but the slugs always got to them.
It is very tempting to use this time to sit and eat chocolate and peanuts (I always have to eat something sweet and salty together) but that is how I put on so much weight last year. I MUST STEP AWAY FROM THE FATTY SNACKS!!
These crochet circles are ideal for me to work on, small enough to feel I have achieved something and if they are wrong I can just undo it quickly.
While looking through some books I found the photograph tucked away in the pages of a book I have never read. I really don't know why it was there. I baffle myself sometimes. I was a flower girl at a cousins wedding. I had blonde curly hair until a few years after this photo I decided to play hairdressers and cut off my hair. It grew back straight and dark, my mother never forgave me. She tried to rag roll my hair at night, the curls dropped out within an hour in the morning. Anyone else remember rag rolls?
OH has gone back to work today so I am trying to entertain myself. I have been looking for something to read, I always find it difficult to choose, at the moment I don't think I have the concentration for anything challenging so a Sue Townsend may do the trick. Adrian Mole was always a favourite with my eldest son, he looked forward to each new book as they both grew up together. He was a part of many peoples childhood.
