Poem for the week.

August 9, 2010  |  Uncategorized

Thanks to everyone who has left a comment over the last few days, it’s really appreciated. Being new to blogging can be very daunting and to receive lovely messages of welcome and kind comments makes it so much easier.


I’d like to share a poem to start the week.  It was written by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Happiness is like a butterfly

the more you chase it, the more it will elude you.

But if you turn your attention to other things,

it comes and softly sits on your shoulder.



I didn’t post “Scotland on a Saturday” this weekend as I was actually down in England visiting my sister and her family.  The photos you see are taken by the river in a town called Bedford.

Finally for today, can I say thanks to Shay for being my first ever comment on my blog – if you mail me your details then I’ll post your gift off straight away.
