April was a month of ups and downs. A month full of good times and a month filled with things I didn’t particularly like. My health hasn’t been good. There have been a number of days and nights were chronic pain has won. I don’t like the times it wins. Those aren’t good times. Despite these down times here are a few things that have I have been loving and made me happy.
My ‘little girl’ turns 13 in a few weeks time. Its the right time to loose the bright pink and lilac colour scheme and have a bedroom that a little more grown up. We’ve gone with a coral/salmon and grey theme with flamingos featuring on the bed wall. This wallpaper looks stunning on the wall. The other 3 walls are being painted a lovely coral colour with grey and coral room accessories. It’s going to take a few months to complete but will are hoping to have it finished for her birthday.
I love stationary. Notebooks, pends, pencils. Just adore them all. I’m loving this notebook I picked up in Home Bargains and this pens, which look like pencils are a perfect colour match. Not surprisingly there is a little young lady round here you is trying to claim them as hers!
This is Marvin our gorgeous boy cat. Cuddles from this affectionate boy always mean good times.
During April we had a few days with some lovely weather. I manged to take a very short wall around a local home. This is Himley Hall and the former home of the Earl of Dudley. It is now owned by the local Council and the grounds are open daily to visit. Such a fantastic place on a sunny day.
I love fresh flowers especially when they are seasonal flowers not artificially grown or flown all around the world. My favourite really are tulips and I’m loving having a new bunch every week. I know I’ve not got long and then the good times will end for another year where my love of tulips is concerned.
What things are bring good times in to your life right now?
