Celebrate the small things

I've been having a few problems with Blogger this week, posts not loading and reading lists disappearing, so please accept my apologies if I've missed your posts this week. It may even be that some of you have been experiencing the same issues, anyway, thankfully all seems to be running smoothly again now. 

So what else has been happening this week? Well, not much writing has been done, I feel a little lost with that at the moment, but maybe that can wait till next week's IWSG. 

But on the plus side I have managed a couple of walks this last week. Getting out in the fresh air gives me a pick-me-up.

We've had rain today for the first time in quite a while but I know the garden will benefit, and we picked strawberries from the plot last weekend and more are nearly ready. Have also been enjoying some home grown lettuce leaves in my lunchtime salads.

I am taking a trip to Wales with my husband this weekend. He has some things to do up there and I am going along to keep him company. I am looking forward to a change of scenery and spending some time together. Not sure what the weather is going to do, I suspect there might be some more rain. Difficulty is knowing what to pack. It's only a couple of nights but I seem to have laid out enough stuff for a fortnight! Layers are key I think, and a lightweight jacket. And what to do about footwear? I might need a dressy pair to go out to dinner in, a comfy pair to walk around in, maybe some flip flops or sandals ... aargh I hate packing!

Hope you all have a good weekend, whatever you are up to. I will catch up with comments and visits when I get back.

Thanks, as ever, to our lovely host Viklit for hosting supported by her team of co-hosts.

  1. Go enjoy Wales!
    I know several people said that Blogger's Dashboard was showing no blogs for a few days. Guess they just had some issues.

  2. Hehe... packing for a couple of days is sometimes harder than for a fortnight - at least you can justify a straining suitcase for 14 nights. Have a great time :-)

    I've had commenting problems recently, even on my own blog!

  5. Blogger's dashboard showed just one blog in my reading list for the entire day. The rest of the time it was quite a pain in the neck, as it just did not upload my reading list at all :(

  8. My reading lists were disappearing too, so you're not alone! A couple of walks and a trip to Wales sound great! I'd love to visit Wales sometime.

    Good luck with your writing. Hopefully that feeling of being lost disappears soon!

  12. Yup, Blogger had me bummed earlier this week too- until I realized I hadn't accidentally done something dumb and that others were experiencing the same thing. Have fun in Wales, I bet it's so gorgeous there. I'm going to St. Louis this weekend. Gotta get up at 4:30. *groan*

  16. Greetings human, Suzanne,

    Blogger is a pain at the best of times. My human friend, Gary, knows all about that.

    I do hope that weekend in Wales brings you sun and plenty of fresh air. No matter what, Wales is a magical place. A place this garden gnome can relate to.

    In magic,

    Geoffrey :)

  17. Hope you have a great time in Wales - maybe a change of scenery will inspire some fresh writing - fingers crossed!
    Home-grown fruit and veg always taste best. My 11 year old son grew some strawberries in a big flowerpot...and they ripened while he was away for the week. Not one day passed that I wasn't tempted to eat them and blame the birds...

  18. Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. I had a nice trip to Wales and the weather was quite kind to us and I ended up not needing half the stuff I packed!

    Have a good week :)

  19. mmmmm strawberries! yum yum! Packing for a fortnight is almost a necessity. Myra would fill the trunk of my car for an overnighter. LOL Have fun in Wales!
