I would like to thank those of you who follow The Humble Bungalow Blog
and those of you who take the time to comment.
I know what busy lives we lead...
I am finding myself strapped for time
trying to juggle work, family, domestics and the garden.
Granted it's a holiday...
We are not taking the day or the weekend off
we are engaged in hard work.
Work that needs to be done
and we have lots of great helpers!
We are helping an elderly family member clean up their home and property.
Our family have given us so much over the years...
trips to the California Desert
trips aboard a yacht
Which i am finding all
adds up to heart tugging
I am wearing faded denim jeans, a white T shirt and my casual walking shoes.
Not a great look, but really who cares?
I have my gloves ready!
Sadly the gloves are wearing out
and I need to go and find a new pair
luckily there are more where they came from
and they're as cheap as chips!
It seemed like a good idea at first
and then I said
the silk is too slippery
so I swiftly tied the scarf around my neck
Am I crazy to want to add some colour and style to my work duds?
Is it me
do you love the sound of those two words?
On the drive home
I had a "moment"
it caught me off guard
I felt my throat become taut and tight.
Where did that come from?
sorting and handling everyday household items used for years
going though personal papers
discovering the cards and drawings that my children had sent over 20 years ago...
which they saved
has affected me greatly...
and I wonder
if this is how my children will feel....
when they are in this situation.
Clutter is not a problem
in The Humble Bungalow
but it's early days!
(I am kidding, I am so on it!)
There's something so cheerful about flowers in the home
and yellow is ticking all the boxes for me today
a little bit of sunshine goes a long way.
Easter Egg Hunts and Chocolates
will need to wait for next year.
We are Family...
and a little bit of Fun!
I hope that you have a smile on your face!
