I'm missing the incentive of writing posts like the '52 Weeks of Happy' blog challenge that some of us joined in with last year so I've decided that occasionally I will write a post about four little things that have made me smile over the last week.
This week we have been staying close to home as I'm looking after my neighbour's cat. She's an elderly cat who has to have medication at 6p.m. every day. My popping next door two or three times a day usually disconcerts our cats who think I should just be caring for them but this week in all the heat non of the cats care very much about anything except keeping cool. We have also been clearing out the shed of years of collected items that may 'one day be useful' - they are now sitting in a skip on the front drive awaiting collection. Hurrah! We can now walk into the shed instead of opening the door and everything falling out.
Anyway, here are four things that have made me smile this week:-
We went for a walk at Froghall Wharf on Monday morning and when we got back to the car we sat at a picnic table and opened our flask of coffee we were joined by two little bunnies - so cute!
We walked into the woods and over the ancient pack horse bridge.
I love the old, moss covered stones of the bridge which if only it could talk would have tales to tell of all those who have walked over it over hundreds of years. It was cool and dark down under the bridge and very atmospheric.
Meanwhile, back home in the garden we have water lillies on the pond. There have been lillies in the pond since we first moved here 17 years ago but I can count on one hand the number of times they have actually flowered - this must be a good year for them.
Flitting over the pond and landing on the garden plants we also have dragonflies - this one stayed around for ages letting me take its photo.
