Glory days

old garage lowres

Glory Days. Well they’ll pass you by.

Glory Days. In the wink of a young girl’s eye.

Glory Days. Glory days.

So many of these old cars abandoned round here. This one caught my eye sitting in front the the abandoned garage. Don’t you ever wonder about their stories? I do.


Is this my best side?

Why are lizards and reptiles cute, but snails, slugs and worms not? (and don’t get me started on maggots *bleaurgh*)

Maybe it’s the slimeyness of them (crunchy, not slimy) or the look of them… or maybe it’s the time I stood on a slug in my bare feet and it squished up between my toes. Everyone was looking at me as if I’d lost my head when I was jumping backwards, hopping about and rubbing one foot on the carpet like a bull before charging going “AHH!! AHH!! AHH!!”. Yep, could be that.

Anyway lizards ARE cute.

What makes life worth living?

Moments that take your breath away… or in my case, moments that have you jumping up and down on the pier going “DOLPHINS. DOLPHINS. AND BABY DOLPHINS!!!”

Yep, that mad person was me. But I think I pulled it off with style (the jumping around bit) Anyway anyone who doesn’t get excited to see magical creatures in the wild doesn’t deserve a fudge donut.

Looking out for unicorns in the woods behind my house now 🙂

Happy 21st Birthday

Look at the mischief in those eyes!
Look at the mischief in those eyes!

This wee cherub turns 21 tomorrow.

Yes, I know, you’re thinking how can that be possible? Alba seems so young to have a 21 year old…..!?! 😉

Anyway I’d just like to wish my daughter a Happy 21st Birthday – you’ve given me more love, laughter, happiness, worry, drama than I’d ever have imagined possible. But I wouldn’t swap one single minute of the last 21 years. You have your whole life ahead of you, now go out and kick ass!
