Very Quiet!

What do you tell folks when you have absolutely nothing to say?

That is my problem at the moment. I profess to write a blog and I really do try to keep it going, but it seems that when I sit down to write something I find I really haven't any news at all.

The thing about it that is so unnerving, is that I never used to be like that at all. There was a time when people couldn't shut me up. (My husband will probably confirm that if you ask him.)  I could talk the hind leg off a donkey and still have plenty to say. But now, as the years are moving along, I find I'm not really doing much so can't pass on any news at all. (Interesting or otherwise)

Nevertheless, I have one piece of news today. We went to see our gorgeous nephew, Christopher on Sunday. He is nine months old now and what a little cutie he is. He was smiling and happy all the time we were there.
I have added a little photo of him here so you can see what I mean about the smiling part. It was so lovely seeing him again as the time is passing so quickly and I don't want to miss out on any part of it. Though I think he might be walking the next time I see him as he was really trying to get on his feet yesterday.

We had the outside of our house cleaned this week. Yes, you read that right. A man came and washed all the outside walls with suds and then a hose. So it looking all nice and clean for the summer. The problem now is that I should really set about spring cleaning the inside, but at the moment I can't seem to drum up any enthusiasm. No doubt I will get my head around it at some point, but not yet!

Another person called on the same day to replant the little trees we have in pots. We decided that it would be better if they were in the ground as they get dry during the summer months and need me to water them so often. I think they will have a better chance at surviving now they are in the ground. That's what I told them, anyway.  The same man also propped up another tree, which had fallen over in the recent winds. This is the second time he has had to do this, so I do hope it will survive as the birds nest in there during the spring.

Well for someone who had nothing to say, I have certainly rabbited on a bit.  I hope you are all still with me at this point.

I think that is all for the moment, so I will bid you all a farewell and pour myself a drink! It must be about the right time now.   Is there ever a wrong time?

Have a great day,



  1. What a cutie he is Eileen, children bring so much love and laughter with then, so enjoy your gorgeous little nephew. I raise a glass of good cheer to you :-)

    1. Thank you. He certainly takes a good photograph.
