Raindrops on roses....

Think Sound of Music and Julie Andrews singing.....
(this is really a camelia in the front garden)
and whiskers on kittens
(and this was our beloved cat Alfie whom we miss)
Candlelight and fragrance- this one was grapefruit and clary sage
Add some Bach on the CD player and some newly crocheted egg cosies
and you have some of my favourite things, at least at the moment. Having felt really unwell for the last few days, I needed to do some serious self-care!
I was really hoping to get ahead of myself ready for company coming on Thursday - my mother-in-law who is 82 and a good friend of the family who is 69!! will be staying for 6 days but I haven't been able to do anything. Tomorrow it is off to work for three days far away leaving home at 6.30am and coming home around 8pm! Still, at least I feel better - not 100% but definitely better than I was so it is onwards and upwards...
Hope you have all had a good weekend.
