thanksgiving

It has been a rather sh**y for various reason but I woke this morning to find the sun shining and I really can't be in a bad mood today.













Thank you for your advice on trees. We haven't decided yet. I forgot to say that our neighbour has a cherry tree that is cropping. This is unusual for Scotland and maybe an indication of the microclimate in this neighbourhood. Really, I am trying to convince myself that a quince would do ok, despite previous evidence. I am trying to find a variety that flowers late, to avoid the early spring storms.

Thank you also for continuing to read my blog, and to leave comments. It is nice to think of you reading these pages. It makes me happy to think that sometimes I make you smile and maybe, just maybe, skip through your day with just a little more joy.

Thank you for your words of encouragements when things are not great. Thanks for being kind to me even when you maybe think "common, get a grip".

Your friendship means a lot to me. Thank you.

Anyway, before I get too sentimental, I hope you are looking forward to a nice weekend. Mine is going to be busy - a nice kind of busy. See you later xx

  1. Have a great weekend. For once we are not going to do much at all, maybe a little reading and TV.

  13. No one thinks get a grip, we all have imperfect lives, no one with children can say any different. Well except my next door neighbor who has one son in med school, one going into med school and a daughter going to get her Master degree in economics. Did I tell you that they are all really beautiful and lovely?

  14. I love reading your blog and have found real friendship in our similarities. Your photos are rather 'reflective' and I think we all feel like that sometimes. I have just announced I am having a sewing day because I have been eveyone's slave this half term week! Jo x

  18. I have so enjoyed reading your posts that I've missed recently - it's always such a treat to catch up with what you've been doing and your photos are always fabulous. A very late New Year's Resolution (or perhaps a very early one) is to not let my blog reading slide as it's only when I start catching up again that I realise how much I've missed it. Thank you for being here! xx

  19. Sunshine can lift the spirit in so many ways besides warmth. I too am thankful for meeting so many new and interesting folks through blogging, especially as it is my only form of social media..

  20. I always enjoy reading your blog Christina, you always make me smile. I never think 'get a grip' when I read it, you always seem far busier than me but appear to thrive on it. We're all different and isn't that good. Be happy in whatever you do xx

  22. Beautiful reflective photos. The blogging world can be a great source of info & recommendations along with some comfort. Ah if just "getting a grip" was so easy. As we move into November with all its less light & chill I know I am going to be having those moments of not having a handle on emotions so cheers to the moments of sunshine & being outside. I think Nature is such a tonic. Raising my tea mug to cheer you on for a better day, a better week ahead. =^..^=

  23. Hey Christina,
    Don't you hate those shitty days?
    I'm catching up with my favourite blogs, and am hopeful that you are feeling less urgh and more yay. The sun cannot fail to lift those spirits. Thank you for your friendship, solidarity and support. I love visiting you here. Real, warm and honest.

  24. Hi Christina, I was thinking earlier that I hadn't seen a post from you in a while and wondered whether you were ok. It turns out you've been posting away but for some reason they've not been coming up in my reader. Grr! I'm so glad you are fine and still writing away. Sorry I've missed several posts - I will catch up now :-) I love your blog (hence me wondering where you were) and I love popping by to catch up with your Glasgow life. Hope you're feeling tonnes better. Sam x
