Sunshine On My Shoulders….today in the Lakes

A wonderful sunny day full of birdsong and contentment as we sat out on the patio.

Sharing some photos of my grandchildren.  Martin, my son, is learning to play the saxophone and Ben is learning to play the piano.




Amy ..believe it or not could get a sound out of Martin’s saxophone; unlike Grandma who nearly burst a blood vessel trying!



Ben showing off his piano playing.  He’s very good!



Amy, Matthew and Martin.    Matthew wants to play the Bongo drums.  He has yet to have them.   Maybe if he says he will practice in the wooden Wendy House at the bottom of the garden he might be able to?Time will tell….. lol


We had a great weekend recently with my son’s little family.  We managed to fit in a church visit as well as ten pin bowling over the weekend.  The church was choc-a-bloc as there was a christening for a family with their three children.  A lovely celebration was had by all.

The weekend was sunny long last!  The children got a chance to play in the garden.  I wish it had been longer but I hope to go back down there soon.  Amy has to perform in a dance at a theatre hired by her ballet school.  I can’t wait to see her and her little friends perform.  She has three costume changes.  Tap, ballet and modern.  Bless!

Hope you enjoy the photos.  xx

Just testing out Windows Live Writer on my Blog.

It’s a beautiful Spring day here in the Lakes.



The hotel bedroom where we stayed this last weekend.


Ornate ceiling and friezes around the room.




A comfortable room but a bit spooky!

Something woke me up the second night shaking my right arm.  It didn’t upset me and I went back to sleep.  I was again woken up by what felt like a cold hand stroking the back of my hand. It felt calming and not a bit scary so I returned to sleep.  Weird or what?

I am pretty much sold on this Live Windows Writer.  It is working a bit like AOL did when we were al on there.

This is just a test page and will/should disappear after I have viewed it.
