Well, today is Friday, and it should be Five On Friday day, but of course the baton has now been passed over to Carly and Tricky at FAST - click here or the badge in the sidebar to find the link up - so I don't have a link up to host. It feels very odd let me tell you. I am very happy with the decision, but it is odd all the same. I had every intention of coming to my computer this morning to write a post, but at the end of a grotty week for me personally and for the world, this morning has also taken a funny turn of events so now I am not sure what to write about!
I have written three blog posts that I have deleted, just that paragraph above has stayed, with some additions and deletions. What to write about.
Ok, I have made a decision, I am going to post five pictures and a few words about them, and then stick all of the other stuff into a 10 random things post in the style of our blogging friend Leanne from Todays Stuff.
So here goes.....
Primroses in the garden. We have got loads of them at the moment and I adore them. They are so pretty and come back each year all on their own, go away, don't look messy and then return and look beautiful all over again. What more could you ask for in a plant. Nothing. So wonderful to see.
Cake. These were made by a colleague at Basildon Park in the 1950's kitchen and let me tell you they were delicious!
Little violets growing in our grass. It is a good job I took their photo because they had their flowers chopped off by the lawnmower not long after I too their picture - accidently, but it was still sad!
Bears crossing. I saw this great bear sculpture in a town called Alton when I was visiting with a friend recently. They have a no sitting on the bear notice, but how could you resist! I did resist because I was with my friend, but I was tempted!
Funny signs. This road must have led to the local stocks in times gone by. It was also spotted in Alton. What a name for a road hey. Imagine having to give that out as part of your address.
So, that is my five for this week. I feel much better now having shared those things instead of the other jumble of stuff in my head. I will go and straighten that out in another post which it is more appropriate!
Thank you Tricky and Carly for being great new Five On Friday hosts, and thank you for the wonderful post you wrote about me last week, you are great guys and I appreciate everything! Sorry I didn't get to comment last week on any posts - I will explain in the other post a little - but thank you to everyone who took part last week and for all of the support that you gave me and I know will continue to give to Five On Friday.
I hope you have a great weekend, tell you loved ones you love them and be just a little kinder than you need to.
