pieces of our puzzle...

Sunny 28ºC



If the days of our lives are the pieces in a jigsaw puzzle that is our life then we are going to need a nimble mind to complete this complicated yet addictive puzzle. 

There are going to be pieces where they will all fit in nicely but there are certainly going to be pieces that are going to need all our efforts to find where it all fits in.
 Though when it is completed and we fit in that final piece we will look back at the highs and lows and marvel at what we have achieved.

May all your pieces fit in smoothly and have very little misfits.

Keep dreaming...

a very special person...

Morning: Rain (again) 18ºC
Afternooon: Sunny (finally) 27ºC

My beautiful niece.

With my daughter

Sometimes if you're lucky you will have someone in your life that just amazes you no end.  

I am one of the lucky ones, a special girl who happens to be my niece is just that someone in my life.  
She is strong, beautiful (inside and outside), inspirational, caring, giving, easy to talk to....the list just goes on.  
When she is around the sun shines brighter, the laughter louder and the words more sweeter. 
 In some ways her life has not always been the smoothest but you could never tell, always bubbly and cheerful, never to burden others with it. 

She has her dreams and hopes just like any other girl but I know she can and will achieve all of it plus more.

Her name is Cassandra, to me she is just Cass.
Love you Cass.
Believe and you will achieve.

Share yours and keep dreaming...

gratitude...thankful...appreciation...

Rain 21ºC


This image has special meaning to me, something I need to be thankful for.

As most of you know today is America's thanksgiving day, even though I'm living on the otherside of the world, it has me thinking...

Gratitude, thankful, appreciation .... just some words we could use to describe feelings we should feel everyday, just for being here, in this sometimes wonderful, sometimes not so wonderful world of ours.  But everyone being the busy people we are, just never give these words a thought most days.  So dedicating a day in the year just to stop and reflect, be with family (the ones who matter the most) and be thankful for everything we have (though at times we may not think it's enough) is a great tradition to have.  

Be thankful and keep dreaming...

how about a cuppa...

showers 16ºC









"Would you like a cuppa?" a question that I usually reply with "Yes please", do you?

Not sure about you but mine is an automatic response, for me I think it has some sort of social relevance, on the odd occasion I probably didn't particularly want one but because I wanted to be social.  
Refusing one is like refusing to be social with the person offering, at the time I don't conciously think that but in afterthought it occurs to me that occasionally that could be the feeling. 
So now when I offer someone a cuppa, I think, do they really want one or are they just trying to be social.

Guess whatever the reason it's nice to have company when having a cuppa.

Think I'll go now to have mine, before it gets cold.

Keep sipping and dreaming...

when love has left us...

rain 16ºC




A beautiful bouquet of miniature roses that I bought a few days ago, that conjured up for me recent past weddings I have attended and also mine in the distant past.  

Flowers are one of the things that we would love to hold onto it's beauty but is always eluding us but sometimes when the beauty is gone, we make up for in our love for it, just like my love for flowers lets me see what it once was and also the beauty that's left behind.

Keep dreaming everyone...
