Mr S.hates stripes......

For some strange reason Mr Snowdrop dislikes stripes.

I on the other hand am rather partial to a stripey t......


Or a cozy striped sweater......


Oh, how he'd laugh if I decorated our house comme ça......

Happy Easter......

May the sun shine.

May your hot cross buns not make you cross.

May your relatives visit(or not!)


May the roads stay clear.


May your Easter Eggs have zero calories.


May you get all your chores done.

Or may you have a well earned rest.


Above all......


Have a lovely Easter,

Muscari Malarkey

Muscari ......Also known as Grape Hyacinth - a small spring flower, most commonly blue.

Malarkey ......Meaningless nonsense - one of my top ten favourite words of all time.

At this time of the year, when the sun isn't always shining, it is a joy to see the gorgeous  Muscari flower......

ooh, hello......remember me?......

It's been over a year since my last post, and only now I feel   
I'd like to dip my toe into the wonderful world of blogging 

Why stop?......

A lot has happened in the past year.

- a little domestic hiccup

- a bit of blogging nastiness

- teenage snowdrops in far flung places

- a long distance house refurbish project

- but you know, I just lost my blogging oomph. I had nothing at all to say.  And the strange thing was I couldn't/wouldn't look at other blogs either.

Why start again?......

A very wet and windy weekend in Majorca,  with nothing but a computer and a slightly grumpy Mr Snowdrop for company.
I had another look at my little old blog - and liked a lot of what I had posted.  One thing led to another, and I revisited the blogs of old favourites - the bottom of the ironing basket , loo boos and shoes , home , Tone on Tone , and many, many more.  That's a lot of reading, but it was very wet!!

I just stopped 'cold turkey' and probably broke all sorts of blogging etiquette - and I bet blogging technology has moved on a lot - but now I'd like to start again. Mistakes and all !!

I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends, and discovering a whole years worth of new ones.

I've missed you guys......
