THE FOUNTAINS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A lovely day down at The Fountains by the harbour at the weekend, just before the weather changed. Kara was looking after the twins and took them for a walk or I should say ride for them in the pushchair. They are growing up so quick and will be 2 in August, so very cute though, love them to bits.

SHOULD APOLOGISE, SORRY READERS

HAPPY MONDAY

The sun is still shining here and I have a few blog posts to write as I have been very bad, too much time spent outside in garden and out with family. It has been great though and it makes you realise again how much you love your garden, seeing your plants and bulbs coming up and then remembering planting them, or not as occasionally I see something growing and have no idea what it is or how it got there. Do you find that?

I have been doing some reading but that has gone a bit slow because the last two books I have had trouble getting into, I do feel so bad when that happens but have to keep telling myself that you cannot like everything.

I have some places in Folkestone to visit for reviews, I love seeing new businesses open and encouraging the customers in.

I also hurt my back so that has slowed me down in everything but it is much better but I have to remember not to bend or pick up anything.

Very disappointed in the response to my competition, so will do one more post and make it very easy to enter. I know the pre-school children would like the show.

BOY OR GIRL?

It’s finally time. After much anticipation, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been admitted to the hospital to give birth to royal baby number three with her husband Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge. “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London earlier this morning in the early stages…

So, the baby is on its way, personally I hope it will be a boy and that him and George have a close bond as I think that has helped William and Harry through their lives.

I do feel a bit sorry for anyone else attending that hospital or visiting as the area will be rammed with paparazzi. I wish her a quick birth so she can get home and relax.

SUMMER AT THE QUARTERHOUSE

IMG_6291

Woo Hoo summer has arrived here in lovely Folkestone, the beach, the fountains and parks are full of excited children and adults. The Harbour Arm was very busy last night which was so good to see. They are even saying that it will carry on all weekend!

I had the summer event booklet through the post, there are some exciting things happening at the Quarterhouse this summer. There is a 6 week writing course that I will attend as these always get me going to write many more words than usual. I also thought the book group was a great idea, I can promote the books I review and also get some good feedback about books I have not read but really should do. Very exciting times and I am so pleased there is something for writers and readers.

I am also really liking the food assembly and will be getting my strawberry plants from there this year.

I have started to sort the garden out, starting with the plant pots but think I will have to get a gardener to do some basic hard work then I can carry on with the pottering about, as I call it.

Today I will be outside doing writing, reading and relaxing. My back is much better but a bit limiting regarding bending over especially later in the day, I am so pleased it did not last as long as it did last time, I ended up on Jodie’s floor for about 6 days, not good.

Have you got any plans for the weekend?

Sending sunny sunshine smiles to you all.
