here & now

005There is a dry, sunny afternoon which has been desperately longed for and is currently being enjoyed.

Life will hopefully be a little less hectic.

The garden has gone crazy with the rain and humidity, self-seeding plants popping up all over the place, many of them Nigella, which I adore.

My son has finished school, I felt like crying when I was ironing his uniform for the very last time. His school career has been a generally happy one and the next step is college. I am excited for all that life holds for him, and a little scared too.

Paperwork has been sorted…amazing how much it lifts a weight, don’t you think?

I have missed posting here for the past few weeks. What did I miss??

Wishing you a lovely day and all good things in your here & now.

here & now

here and how june 6 2016The warm weather has arrived and not before time. Today has been glorious, as was yesterday, and it is set to stay until mid-week. The doors and windows are open, the garden is so green and the world seems a happier place when the sun shines.

I celebrated my birthday on Saturday eating breakfast out with my husband and son and a meal with friends at home in the evening. It was a very lovely day and I was quite spoiled with gifts, cards and general niceness.

Michelle’s lovely offering Just 5 Things began yesterday. I really wanted to join in, but knew I would be busy over the coming weeks, so decided it would be best not to this time round. She is however offering a summer version of 28 Moments which I most certainly intend to sign up for.

My son had his History exam today and over the coming weeks there are exams in English, Maths, Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Music. He amazes me really, how he takes everything in his stride, unlike me at that age with my nervous stomach and anxiousness. I am not saying he isn’t a little apprehensive, but he does seem pretty calm about the whole exam thing.

How’s your here and now, I would love to know?
