Time For A New Beginning

Hi all.

Just a quick note to let you know that I am still here, lurking around the world of blogs, but strictly just lurking lately. 

 No posts, no commenting.

Lazy, maybe?

I blame the former on my phone which, while it takes fantastic photos, is very frustrating when it comes to downloading them. Unless it's absolutely, fully charged when I plug it in to the PC, it decides the only thing it wants to do when connected is feed off the new power source. Flat out refuses to anything else but charge up.
Greedy thing.
So I have to try to download photos at 7:15 in the morning after its had its overnight feast and is nice and contented, patting its full belly.

But you know that's not going to happen.
Download photos...amidst morning showers, breaky on the run, making lunches, prying kids away from the heater because they should be getting dressed. Dreaming!

And the sorry lack of commenting?
My excuse is that I'm hibernating, saving my energy to get through the cold season. 
With everything else going on in my personal life all it seems that I get time for lately is a quick browse here and there when I need a little shot of inspiration or images of beauty to help get me through.
And when there's so many favourite blogs to get through, who has time to comment?

 But rest assured, I do read and look and soak up your pretty pictures and send you my approving thoughts via ESP.

It seems I'm not the only one hibernating. 
Reading through my blog roll I'm going to delete at least ten blogs that haven't seen any action for three months or more.

What my blog needs is a new start, a freshen up.

A new look,
a dedication to more photo downloading so I can start writing posts again.
(So many times I've thought "I'll have to do a post on that but that means enduring a battle between my phone and computer. Sigh!") 

It's time to emerge from the hibernation just in time for Spring
and start creating again.

So bear with me while I 'powder my nose'
and fingers crossed that I actually keep to my promise.

(And as I have to rely for the moment on old pictures, forgive the randomness of the ones included
but what's a post without pictures.)

  1. I know exactly how you feel, I've been a lethargic blogger recently, trying to get my momentum back! Love that birdie ornament you have, I have a very similar one in white but LOVE your blue one :-)


Comments make me happy. Spread the love.

Get to know me

  • I love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • My favourite flowers are daisies.
  • My favourite trees are pine trees.
  • I always like to have the bickie jar full and a cake on the cake stand. I know...not that healthy, but so good to look at.
  • Autumn is my favourite month, although I do wish we had more of a change of colours up here in Queensland.
  • I love Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder. They started my love affair with "old-fashioned" stuff.
  • I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl, but also love vintage skirts and dresses.
  • I like sewing and am in love with quilts at the moment.
  • I love reading. (I have a weakness for archeological thrillers and historical romances, but not Mills and Boon-type ones.)
  • I love old houses with character. No new estate houses for me. (Sorry Rosie.)
  • I love vintage/cottage/farmhouse decorating and pretty pinks and blues, with a splash of red for colour.
  • Polka dots can make me sigh with delight.
  • I have 4 chooks. They are MY pets. Another tick on my dream-come-true chart.
  • I don't eat dessert much any more. I'm not dieting, I just don't want it. (Does that mean I'm growing up if I say no to an icecream cone?)
  • I'll still always say yes to chocolate though!
  • I like to sit on the front stairs in the sun, to drink my morning cup of tea, while I contemplate what to do in the garden.
  • I've got the gardening bug again recently. It comes and goes with the weather. I'm envisioning cottage flowers in pink, blue and white to go with my green picket fence.
