Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!


dear Mum ...

Ten years have passed, and it only seems like yesterday.
I love you Mum, and really miss you.

A Twitter friend of mine sent me these thoughtful words and a big hug - Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

bargain buy books ...

I found these two great hardback books shoved in a box outside the Mind charity shop today, both 49p each!

Eden by Tim Smit and Fast Flowers by Jane Packer.

Creativity by the bucket-load!

Jane Packer, florist and businesswoman, born 22 September 1959, died 9 November 2011

discovering Studland Beach and Nature Reserve in Dorset ...

Four glorious miles .. not to be missed!

Sea, sunshine and shadows .. sky-blue, sailboats and sand!

What more can you ask for, and in March!

Just us on this part of the beach .. oh how that will change come the school holidays!

A great area for wildlife, with sand-dunes, heath, and cliff-top walks to explore!

Studland played a vital role in the lead-up to D-Day, and the legacy of WW2 is still here today - NT.

What a view across the bay from Fort Henry, a concrete observation bunker.

Owned by the National Trust, there's a shop and places to eat at Knoll Beach .. and don't forget to display your car sticker in all car-parks for free parking!

Can't wait to go back!
