Fridays Fabuous Finds # 65

I am so looking forward to the weekend and time to sleep in.  Well just a little more than I can during the school week.

Here are my finds

Have a great weekend.

October brings........

As always the holidays brings the arrival of spring and all the out door chores that come with the introduction of a little warmth to the weather.  You know the chores.......cleaning the house, washing the windows, staying on top of the fast growing lawn and the sad looking garden.

So when I am busy pulling those pesky weeds out, yes they are knee high after a winter of neglect, a smile is bought to my face when I see my boys out playing.  A spaceship with accompanying astronaut and  of course what spaceship would be complete without its mode of movement and navigation (the one having to pull the spaceship around.)



Now just to find an easier way to to keep the garden weeds at bay.

Summer brings...

Summer brings all those delightful smells of freshly cut grass, the appearance of the beautiful colours of summers, the sounds of new life and..........


                                                the exhausted me returning from walking the roads.   




  I cant wait to get fit and enjoy these moments of relaxation and start to live life full of energy.

Now not to contemplate why I let myself go so much but to look forward and start looking after myself.
