FOTD – 9th Feb 2019 – Unknown

Today I thought I would enter the challenge hosted by Cee, the Flower of the Day.  This is for two reasons, the first that I am excited that all of a sudden the spring flowers are pushing their way through on the grass bank outside my home, a definite sign that we can start looking… Continue reading FOTD – 9th Feb 2019 – Unknown

Friendly Friday – stay in your comfort zone

My favorite challenge is the Friendly Friday challenge, hosted alternately by The Snow Melts Somewhere, and Amanda at Something to Ponder About, this week with Snow, who has given the challenge of 'stay in your comfort zone'.

6 a.m. is my time. The boys are still asleep in their cozy beds, dreaming their small child dreams.  They are safe and undemanding. I walk into the living room, half open both sets of curtains and look out on Kingston Bridge, quiet for the moment, asleep like the homeless people living in the arches… Continue reading Kingston Bridge at 6 a.m.
