Life


I have been getting lots of work at the library lately (which is great) however, it doesn't leave me much time for sewing, baking, reading, even blogging and all the other things I enjoy doing.

Over the weekend I celebrated a birthday, so I was spoiled by my family with a special dinner and homemade birthday cheesecake, bubbly, lovely presents and time with Mum, shopping for clothes, plants and fabric.  The above bouquet was given to me by Mum - all the flowers from her garden The Irises always flower in time for her to pick them for me.

Fingers crossed life starts to get back to normal soon and I actually have time to do some of the things that make me happy.

Have a fabulous week.

    Enjoy the work while you've got it the other things will wait.

  11. What a lovely bouquet of flowers... daffodils and tulips are usually what are in bloom for my birthday. Spring bulbs are among my favorites, and if my brother's theory is right that people like the season that they were born in the best, then it's fitting that I enjoy early blooms. Hope you had a great birthday and Herzlichen Gluckwünsch zum Geburtstag aus Deutschland!

  12. yes it's hard to find that perfect balance in life sometimes. I have a blog post half written about that very subject. Happy birthday. Your mum must have a very pretty garden.
