Be yourself

Be true to you...with a little help
make the connection
say what you feel
and smile, more

Word for 2011

My word of the year is TRY.
I give up too easily,
I don't start because I think I'll never finish,
This year if it looks interesting,
if it looks worthwhile,
if it's something I always wanted to do,
well, this year I'm going to TRY
and lets see how much more I can achieve

Well I just hope it'll be worth it!

Oh dear me.  Saturday dawned,  the day in which our electrician and team (aka my man, his brother, and willing helpers) moved into our sweet little number twelve, and set about demolishing it.  All in the name of  'home improvements!  Haha!  At nine a.m. I was optimistically reporting that all was looking good and we might be in on November the first.  By nine p.m. and following a number of "issues" I'm informed to expect (a shocking) "possibly early January".  WHAT?!

I'll spare you today's set of pictures, sufficient to say there isn't a room that hasn't got BIG HOLES in the floor, and the areas that I'd hoped would not need decorating for some time (being a thrifty sort of lass) are to be TOTALLY RUINED.  Sigh.

So instead of our shambolic ruin in Northern England on a very chilly wet weekend in late October, how about.....

just a couple of holiday snaps of San-Franciscan desirable residences to drool over from mid-May instead.  This one reminds me of wedding cake!  And the one below, slightly more rustic......

And finally.........taken in the gardens up at the Griffiths Observatory in Los Angeles........

....gazing upward through the branches into the canopy....

                                           ......remembering old friends, peaceful souls..........

Ah well, off to bed, sweet dreams all, night-night x x x
