Celebrate the small things - Has Spring finally sprung?


Friday again already and I have just realised I haven't posted all week! I have had a busy time back at work after the school holidays and it has just flashed by.

Never mind time to celebrate those small things that keep us going. If you haven't come across this weekly hop yet head over to Viklit @ Scribblings of an Aspiring Author for the full details and to sign up.

This week I received a fun gift from the lovely Nancy at Writers Mark. Thanks, Nancy I love them!



Spring finally seems to be making an appearance. The evenings are lighter. I managed to go for a walk after dinner last night. You seem to be able to achieve so much more when there are extra daylight hours.
A stroll round the garden  showed the plants are flowers are starting to wake up.

                   One of my little furry companions followed me around!

Have a lovely weekend everyone

  2. Spring is certainly worth celebrating. I love the lighter evenings. I have a dog, and our evening walks are so much more pleasant when it's light.

  7. It's still too cold where I'm at. Snowed this week. My kids asked: how can it be so sunny and so cold at the same time. Indeed.

    Cute bookmarks!

  16. Lovely pics. As I sit in my home office, the sun feels warm on my back. Might take off my vest!

  17. I can definitely see lots of blue sky. And people in t-shirts (but I think that's pushing it a little bit). Who-hoo for spring!

  18. Just when I think spring is here, we get another gust of cold air. But I think today will be a beautiful day:)

    1. Thanks for stopping by everyone. Today is glorious, the best we have had here since can't really remember when, last June probably! Went for a walk with some friends by the sea and the back of my neck got sunburnt! Let's make the most of it while it is here x

  25. Hi Suzanne,

    Apologies for such a late comment. My human is lazy and thus, it's up to me :)

    That does look like a fun gift you received. Saturday was very nice and felt quite warm. My human has a lot of gardening to catch up with.

    Here's to a peaceful week to you.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!
