Saying hello.

August 1, 2016  |  Featured Posts

I thought I’d pop in to say hello as it’s been so long. I simply haven’t had time to blog or do much crafting.
Life is currently taken up caring for two elderly mums which doesn’t leave much time once work factors into the equation.

I’ve managed to pop in and out of blogs on the odd occasion but not as often as I’d like. I do think that there is a major change in the way people are blogging these days.

I think sometimes we get too caught up with trying to say too much in one go and it can be off putting as it takes time to sit and write a long post.

I’ll leave you today with a short quote ……….

Every morning, lean thine arms awhile upon the windowsill of heaven
and gaze upon thy God, then,
with the vision in thy heart,
turn, strong to meet the day.

Thanks for popping in, take care.

  2. Hello, Ann! It’s lovely to see your post today. I love the last photo and the quote that goes along with it. It’s a very lovely thought and thing to do. Take care!

    Strong to meet the dsy. I like that. I think that you have super human strength to do all you do for everyone under your care. I have been thinking about you and all the responsibilities you shoulder.

  7. A lovely quote Ann, I’m going to remember that.
    much love to you xxx

  8. You sound very busy care-giving, Ann… I hope you still manage to take some time for yourself each day!

    Yes, the world of blogging is changing… I just began Instagram and am surprised to find myself loving it. It is quick, easy, and you get to see loads of lovely photos from around the world. I only post about once or twice a month anymore as it often seems like too much effort!

    Thanks for sharing the lovely photos and quote with us… Happy August to you!

  9. Wonderful to see a post from you Ann. Beautiful photos!

    Hope all is well with you and your family (cats and dog included, of course).

  10. Lovely to hear from you Ann. I hope all the family is well and that you manage to carve out a little bit of time to recharge your own batteries

  11. So great to see a new post from you. Life keeps you busy with the two Mums and so it’s normal that your hobbies have to take a back seat. But I hope that you find some time for yourself every now and then.
    Wonderful pictures that you show.
