Oh the barnyard is busy
In a regular tizzy
And the obvious reason
is because of the season
Mother Nature's lyrical
With her yearly miracle

I really love that song.However I am not loving the weather at the moment.

I am spring cleaning and sorting,gardening and generally decluttering and all of this is made much more difficult when it's pouring with rain and the threat of snow.
However, this is not unusual.Back in 1984 on my wedding day ( March 31st) it snowed all night and we had six inches of the white stuff.It was so bad that the next day it was touch and go as we set off to Llandudno for our honeymoon in my mother's rather ancient mini traveller.On the way the alternater gave up the ghost and we had to spend the entire week parking on hills so we could do a rolling hill start.Happy days!! Here are some lovely spring flowers to get us back in the mood.

Thank you

Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comments.I'm feeling better today and Im learning to love my new laptop.I prefer my old one though. It was more friendly and huggy. This one is a bit disdainful and it seems to look down its nose at me because I'm rubbish at techie stuff.So I shall sit here being pathetic until my sister comes to my aid with the breakdown blanket in hand!!
Normal service wil be resumed soon I hope.Cannot believe how much the burglary has affected my sense of emotional balance.Apart from having to unravel everything -lap top ergo life support.I also go to bed with handbag,phone,lap top (New snooty one) and all the car keys all doors locked whilst in the house as well as out,This is such a friendly,trusting neighbourhood too.Anyway, thanks girls xx

It's been a long time since my lost post and I am in despair.We had a burglary two weeks ago and my laptop and card reader were stolen.So I have lost my entire address book all my bookmarks and all my customer email addresses.Some were backed up but the whole process of uploading photos for my online shop is now beyond me.I have a new laptop which is very sophisticated but I loved my old plodding travelmate -simple to use and very straightforward.So I cant even upload a photo today because I just don't know how.Seriously thinking of calling it a day.I dont think I have enough time to run an online shop.Its very time consuming to keep it fresh and different and I am increasingly too weary and too defeated.Why are things never straightforward? Why can't everybody who has money give one pound and then the entire African continent could be swathed in mosquito nets? Why do mean and vile people seem to triumph? Why did I put diesel in my petrol car? Why can't I lose a stone in one week? How did it get to be nearly the end of March? Despair !!

Things I am loving on Tuesday

This gorgeous cake or display stand.Its such a great colour.Now in the online shop.

These pretty pictures of snowdrops printed by two of my six year olds.
Also the fact that it has been sunny and the sky has been deep blue all day.
