With that behind us I can move on a little, we still have lots to deal with of course, his house and so on, but not charging around all the time to the hospital driving 100 miles a day will give us so much more time again to get on with life in a more measured fashion.
That has all meant that I can once again join in this week with Five On Friday, and, stop press!!, I hope to actually get round and comment on your posts this weekend! Thank you SO much for having borne with me over the last few weeks and for still joining in even if I haven't been. I really do appreciate it. Hopefully we will now wend our way each Friday to the end of the year without any interruptions or difficulties and I will be able to join in every week.
Today I have five lots of sunshine to share and something that has been bought on by a lack of sunshine, but has had a really good result.
My crochet mojo has returned and I finished this project which I started the day after Man had his stroke. I finished the day before he left hospital. So it was a long slog for one thing, but I did it. More details to come in due course. Of course! The sunshine is the colour, the return of the mojo and the finish!
Sort of sunshine in the colour of the book - Eat by Nigel Slater. The sunny moment is really in the fact that I had time and took time whilst waiting for my car to be fixed at the garage on Thursday to actually plan the meals for the month ahead. I am not finished yet, but getting there and yes, the page numbers relate to the page numbers in the book.
A sunny moment bought on by a lack of sunshine. As the days shorten and the sunshine gets less it prompts my "Seasonal" cactus to flower again. Long time readers might remember this was sold at Christmas as a Seasonal and not Christmas Cactus which infuriated me at the time. It seems though that the name was right, it will flower at all different kinds of seasons as and when it fancies it! Looks as though there going to be lots of blooms to bring some sunshine to my life!
A sad and yet sunny moment with this one. I snapped this beautiful sunset on my phone while we were on the motorway driving home from dropping Man off to his new home - I wasn't driving, I was the passenger. So it was a beautiful sunset and lovely to see and good to have good weather for driving, but a bittersweet day. At least with some sun in it!
Sort of sunny in terms of the golden colours of the leaves that are changing colour in the garden, but also sunny in the fact that a mosaic means that I will be joining in Mosaic Monday on Monday and trying to get back to normal blogging again. So that is pretty sunny isn't it!
In fact I have joined with the lovely Normandy Life for Mosaic Monday! You can find the other posts here.
Those are my five sunny things for this week!
Thank you once again for bearing with me over the last couple of months and for joining in and carrying on. Thank you too for joining in this week and for going and visiting the other participants and commenting on their posts, I know that we all really appreciate it and enjoy it a great deal. You have bought me lots of sunshine and you bring it to others too!
Hope that you have a great weekend and get to do lots of fun things with your loved ones. Remember to tell them you love them!
p.s. talking about sunshine..... just to let you know our clocks change this weekend in the UK - we go back an hour - as British Summertime will be ending overnight on Saturday. So next week the time when the link up appears may be different for you as and when your clocks change too. I will leave it at 6am our time, I hope that doesn't cause too much confusion!
