Busy

Oh my word. Just where has the time disappearred to this past week? Last time I looked March had just roared in and now we're almost halfway through. But that's fine because March has brought some wonderful things so far.

These beautiful, vibrant primulas on my little garden bench have opened gradually in the sunshine. They've found new homes now in mine and my sister's window boxes and they make my heart sing every morning.
Perfectly pretty, just like a daintily wrapped present ready to be unwrapped.
We've been planning a few outings for the Easter holidays (that new Dragon film looks rather fab) and getting things ready to assault the allotment with gusto over the weekend. Work has been rather hectic but I had a lovely, lovely Mothering Sunday with breakfast in bed and flowers thanks to my little smashers.
But mostly this past week has been one of waiting, texting, thinking and anxious filled hours of more waiting.

And good things come to those who wait. My clever, brave sister and her darling husband are curled up in the lovely cottage hospital over the hills, with their precious teeny, bundle. Baby Leo is here and now all is right with the world.

Spring, new growth, new life, lots to celebrate, congratulations.

My niece gave birth to her first child yesterday a lovely little girl, I think that makes me a Great Aunt, hope I can live up to the title!!

Katy Noelle said...

Hooray! The baby is here and so is spring and all is right with the world.

You need to know that I let out rather a high pitched squeal when I saw these flowers. I've been scouring the stores around to find some for my tea on Sat. - primroses or pansies. Spring is so early for us this year that no one is ready for it. It makes me feel better to know that they exist SOMEWHERE in the world! Enjoy them for me too, please!

Love, Katy

Congratulations on the new arrival! What a wonderful way to start spring!! I love the primroses. I was just saying to hubby before he left for work that maybe I'll go and get some. Yet it is suppose to be really warm today so I was thinking greenhouse until I saw these!
