It's been a very busy week here, full of lovely things, new experiences, and routines. Our youngest leaves the security of primary education, to the whole new, big world of secondary school in September. This week has been transition week, in preparation for that change. We're been getting used to new routines, new environments, and new situations. Am I ready to have both my children in secondary school? Noooooooo!
I seem to have spent much of my week socialising, it's been lovely, tiring but lovely. I'm not sure what I'd do without my friends, they are so important to me. I'm at an age now, where I feel confident in the choices I make. One of those choices is to have friends who are genuine, honest, and who I can be myself with. It makes spending time with them fun. I like fun.
The weather has turned much cooler this week, I've been dodging the showers by retreating into my garden studio. It's a great place to watch the birds, especially the blackbird as he devours the red currants. We've finished one of our compost areas, I just need to pot up a few plants and it's all finished...it's great to complete another small area. Still a long way to go, but I'm enjoying the challenge very much.
I also wanted to share with you my thoughts on sponsored blog posts. I share with you products that I know, and love. I'm never sponsored for any of the reviews I do. From my own experience it's great to hear what others think of something, especially if you're thinking of buying something yourself, and so from that point of view they are very useful. There are lots of bloggers out there who have made a living from their blogs. They rely on sponsorship, and good on them, for turning something they love doing into a career.
I'm also feeling very emotional this week, thoughts are turning to this time last year. Summer 2014 was a very difficult one, saying goodbye to Mum was a long, painful, intense time. There was also a beautiful connection made too, between a mother, who had lost her memories, and her daughters, who loved her so much.
So there you have it, this week, bit random...welcome to my life! How's your week going? I'd love to hear all about it.
