Love a bit of architecture

I do, it would of been my career choice if things went differently.
My love goes towards more traditional buildings, using traditional skills.
There are LOADS of new builds, mainly tower blocks, around me and I
can say I don’t like very much of it. New builds seem to be about getting as many people in to as small an area as possible, they lack that family/community feel, walking down the street meeting /chatting with your neighbours (saying that, I’ve lived in houses for years and never once spoken to my neighbours! but I like the idea of it)
Anyway while walking daft mutt I came across this building & took a few images of it, it has been renovated & now has a little bit of new mixed in with the old and I quite like it 🙂 IMG_0186.JPG

Lucky soul

I realized something today, that I’ve known for a while and that is just how lucky I am.
I always felt like a lucky soul but over the last few months/years the things friends & family (& sometimes strangers) have done for me make me really appreciate what I have,
and that is love, in different ways.
They all make me smile whenever I think of them. I can be, not ungrateful, but more…mm, I’m not good at showing my gratitude, sometimes my thanks never feels enough, I intend to improve this somehow, I do send each and everyone of them my love and thanks almost every day. But that’s a mental thanks to them and the universe,
Because I wouldn’t have what I do have without them.

Pub chatter

I’m not pub lass, it is not my first thought when thinking about going out, most drunk people just get on my nerves and I want them to F off and leave me be, doesn’t help that I’m not a big drinker.
But a local pub does have GOOOD food so we had a Sunday lunch there.
Anyway I’m sitting there watching the people, families and friends all gathered in various groups, listening to the noise from their laughter & chatter in different languages…I sit there and think you all have sooo much to say, while I draw a total blank and have nothing to say, I just sit and watch…
Not much fun for companions, unless you like companionable silence. ……..
But I do enjoy people watching

Today

At around 1:30am There was a whispering song of happy birthday drifting into my ears by little lady who decide to wake up, today I am 39, but inside I am probably about 17, I feel no different, although my skin tells me otherwise, with its lines creeping in and strange texture.
It really is just another day where my hair has other plans and kids take pictures of the cats butt hole and use it as my phone screen saver, ahh the laughter, now for the washing up! But the sun is shining so it’s a good day in my eyes

got around to doing some Yoga..

and it ended up being this one,

My little lady joined in too so it was amusing.

I can feel this blog becoming something I wasn’t intending it to be, a daily blah blah about my days, which really are not that exciting, I’m currently looking out the window watching a squirrel run around! Pretty but not what I was thinking about when I started here, initial thoughts were to have posts about the things that really interest me, so I shall try not to be side tracked by my fluffy days, although with an iPhone I might be easily side tracked and who knows what fluff you may subject yourselves too. ;D

As I’m starting Yoga for probably the hundredth time, life does gets in the way, I thought I should put something up about it.

WHY Yoga?

I have lower back issues, I’d like to be bendy and feel the need to be more in touch with my soul which feels slightly separate from me but I still see/feel it with my peripheral vision.

I once read Quantum healing by Deepak Chopra, ( whom I have mixed feelings about)http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0553173324?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

and a few stories struck home,  so here I am nearly 40 trying again before these bones decide to bend in half and I don’t get to stare at the clouds, which I do quite often and get questioned by it from little lady.

Off  to do some mumsie things

and possibly post later 🙂

Misty misty

Ok so I’m in the woods
There are a million misty visions I can see that would make an awesome…I’m too old for that word but I have kids and use them as an excuse for all manner of things including my language.. Anyway I’m surrounded by autumnal beauty ( & a daft dog chasing birds) and wishing I had a better camera cause this iPhone just isn’t doing nature justice.

The sun graced us with her loveliness, it was a nice chilled day.

SO it was a nice day, ending with Red Velvet Cupcakes and lots of loud music :D.

Back to today I have now spent longer just putting these few pics up than I wanted.

I am having newbie WordPress issues, Pics not going where I want, writing doing the same, sure I’ll figure it out, but now I don’t have time to try out a yoga video I wanted and I’m hungry :/

Being new at that too I thought I’d try out this video,

there is so much choice, but this guys voice doesn’t annoy me to much so thought I’d start there 😀
