This week I have Loved……. oh I have a list!

I know everyone is saying it,  but I can not believe that it is the end of August already!

The summer has flown, the leaves are already falling from the trees in The Glade.

We have a lovely long bank holiday weekend stretching ahead of us before the mayhem of the school routine begins again.

I have a list of things that I have loved this week, so I will just get on with it.

This Week I have loved and my Favorite Five –

Picnics

We have been enjoying many picnics lately.

It is so much easier when we have Jack, our black Labrador with us.

It isn’t always easy to find somewhere that let dogs in.

However, when we have a picnic, he just sits at the end of table hoping that something falls into his path.

Orchids

This beautiful Orchid has taken up residence on our landing window sill.

I bought it this week to brighten up that window and every time I walk past it, it makes me smile.

I am having a bit of a love affair with Orchids at the moment and was delighted to find one on my desk at work last week.

However, as much I love them, they don’t love me, I would be grateful for any tips that anyone has about how to keep them alive.

 Coffee

Not really coffee in general, but Costa Coffee for making at home in a cafetiere.

Bizarrely, I love coffee but since I was pregnant with my second daughter, I have not been able to drink it very strong.

Therefore, this arrangement is ideal because I get to put a smaller measure in but still have the delicious Costa taste.

The Beach

I love the beach at anytime of year.

On Saturday evening we took Jack for a walk in New Brighton.

We were rewarded with a glorious sunset, followed by a dramatic thunder storm.

Thankfully, we were in the car by the time the rain hit.

Our Garden

Now I know the weather has been awful and we all feel cheated out of a summer.

However, the flip side is that our garden is still looking lovely and colorful, there are still buds on The Passion Flower and, the Hydrangea still isn’t in full flower.

It is the little things!!
