The Cuckoo comes in April,
He Sings his song in May,
He whistles a tune in June,
And then he flies away
Good afternoon, we have a book in the lounge sitting open on a cast iron stand (the kind for a cookery book) its called:
Diary of a year on Easdale
by Garth and Vicky Waite.
The book is lovely it is all superbly illustrated by the authors and written like a diary with a different little painting a poem or just what happened that day, we keep it open at the date and have look every day the poem above is today's offering along with some lovely painting of birds and wild flowers. It is just not the kind of book you want to keep shut away in the bookcase it is far too beautiful for that. I will try to take a picture of it to let you see it one day soon.
It has been a lovely weekend and we have been out enjoying the garden getting the hanging baskets ready the grass has been cut and everything is looking great. The weather forecast was right today it must be a first saying it would rain about 12 o'clock well it was a bit late but it is raining now but thankfully we managed to get all we wanted done.
I am feeling much more like myself again the sun can do wonders for you when it shines. I hope the time slows down a bit now as I hate summer to fly by its the 1st of June already being on holiday for two weeks in May makes the month disappear so quickly.
June means Big Brother I suppose I will give it a look now and again but I do object to Channel 4 taking Desperate Housewives off till BB is finished it was months late in starting this year with the writers strike in the States but there is no reason to take if off again just when it was getting good. Mump over.
We had a nice day trip on Thursday we went to Stirling on the bus good for the environment and out pocket as we go free just joking we really like on the bus you can see over all the hedges and walls and Stuart enjoys seeing all the countryside as he usually does most of the driving and has to keep his eyes on the road. It was dull when we lift home but by the time we arrived in Stirling the sun was out and we had a lovely day. Off now to upday my book journal as I have just finished another book so I think that's about it for today, till next time.. Love
