A word that is plaguing me at the moment! It should really be a swear word.

Productivity.... there's another annoying word.

Why can't I get things done?

What is the secret to motivation ? Is that another of those words?

Answers on a postcard please.

Wind Swept and Wonderful

Why does the weather have to improve beyond belief once you are back from a trip??
Last bank holiday weekend we hitched up our caravan and headed to the North Norfolk Coast for a mini break by the sea.
Three families, three caravans, three dogs!

Freedom for the kids...tearing around, football, kites and swingball.....and drizzle!
A trip to Felbrigg Hall (a beautiful Jacobean house now owned by the National trust) which has the most amazing walled garden.
It made me realise that I am more than a little behind with my little patch!

However NO trips to the beach as rain and stormy winds made it spectacular to look at but impossible to picnic on!!!


The fun really began as the evening drew to a close. BBQ and wine enjoyed. The winds picked up and all around the camp site rushed to fasten everything down. A sleepless night followed while the winds rocked the caravan and pulled at the awning. The next morning we woke to discover our friends' awning had ripped off in the night and they had been trying to rescue it at two in the morning!

Now we are home the sun is shining and the washing is dry.
