Friday Forecast...week 35...31/08/12

beautiful flowers
Beautiful flowers.
Sorry I haven't posted this week but it has been a bit up and down with emotions and things that needed to be sorted for a funeral for a very dear family friend who was more like family to us. Now the hard part is over and goodbyes have been said and although it will be a while before those memories that bring a smile to my face also don't bring a tear to my eye I know that we will all be OK and that I know someone who holds a very special place in my heart is at peace. The flowers above are one of those from the funeral which were given to me by her sister and daughter and for that I was very moved. I also thank all of you who sent warm wishes my way. xx

The weather has been unsettled this week with sunshine, showers and heavy rain often competing with each other. Also the mornings are colder and for the first time in a long time I had condensation on my windows this morning when I awoke...It really is going to be September tomorrow!!

Today dawned cold but bright and it looks like the sun is here to stay for a while and these are the days i love...I am hoping to get some work done on the allotment this afternoon and get things sorted for the show. I will take some pictures today of what I ma entering and so you can see. I don't really expect to win anything...but I am entering for the fun of it anyway. I still hope to get some baking done today too. A busy day ahead but keeping myself occupied is just what I need.

So quickie post for now...but lots to show you over the weekend to come.


  1. A bit of sunshine can help luft the spirits a little.

  2. I am sorry to hear about your friend.

  3. So sorry to hear your sad news, Tanya. They say time is a great healer, I believe that you just learn to deal with the sadness as time goes by, and as you say, you'll remember the good times with a smile. We've been to the Dales again today, it stayed dry while we were walking, but rain came eventually. I'm hoping that some better weather is coming our way for the weekend.

  4. I am so sorry to hear about your friend. May those happy memories help carry you through the sad times.

  5. Dear Tanya, I will keep you in my heart and my prayers. It is a good attitude that you have for your dear friend. It is very hard to be left when someone dear passes.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  6. P. S. The weather here is still muggy and warm. I am looking forward to the cool fall days ahead. I love the fall. Blessings dear. Catherine xo
