Celebrate the small things


Thanks to Viklit for hosting our weekly celebrations

What's been happening this week? Well, I received a parcel from the lovely Leandra as part of a recent giveaway she ran to celebrate her 1st bloggy birthday. Leandra LOVES ampersands and vanilla in her pop! If you haven't meet Leandra yet I suggest you hop on over and say 'hi.'


The pretty pink ampersand is now sitting by my laptop. Thanks again Leandra.

The last couple of days have been warm and sunny, finally been able to go out without a coat on. Hoping it lasts a while. The sunshine always seems to make you feel more energised.

Following on from last week here are a couple of pictures of my daughter dancing in the Flora Dance. Sadly it was a wet day and some of the dancing had to be cut short but everyone still seemed to have fun.



Happy weekend everyone

    1. It was a shame for the children, the adult's dance continued despite the rain!

  2. After your last post, I looked at a few of the Flora Day videos on Youtube and found that the music and dancing is VERY infectious. Both my children appeared out of nowhere and started dressing up and capering about in their own (very silly) version of the dance. I'm ashamed to confess that seeing some of the dancers trying to keep serious faces while their magnificent outfits were soaked through by torrential rain...did make us giggle a bit. Sorry, Suzanne xx

    1. Well yeah, they probably had a giggle afterwards too! The dry cleaners were busy the following week. Would have loved to see your boy's version of the dance, the tune is still in my head and I wasn't even there all day xx

  3. I'm seeing that flavoring everywhere. One woman posted that she uses it in her coffee instead of creamer. Where do you guys get it? Is it something you have to order online?

    1. Maybe Leandra can answer that one, Stephanie. I haven't had time to try it yet but intend to.

  7. What a lovely gift from Leandra - she's a sweetie! Of course it rained on the "Flora" Dance - flora need lots of water to grow. Have a great weekend! ;)

  16. Congratulations on the win. I've finally learned how that funny sign is called in English! Ampersand. Hahaha. Nice pictures!

  17. Lovely pics. What a shame about the weather. My choir has booked some Morris dancers to bolster our summer concert, which should be fun. It's not until mid-July, so we're hoping the sun will shine.

  18. I saw the Flora day footage on the news - people were still smiling, so I'm glad the rain didn't dampen spirits.

  20. We finally had a little bit of sun this weekend, but unfortunately it's back to gloomy and rain. I'm hoping it doesn't last long though.
