Friday, blissfully floating into the weekend

Dear reader, what a long week it has been – starting at a new school – liking it immensely but feeling a little worn for the experience. The prospect of two days off is a delight. Delightful even with the forecast well, forecasting a deluge of rain of biblical proportions and sporting events crammed into every nook and cranny of the 48 hours. I took a stroll into the garden and the first little freesia had bobbed its fragrant head into our world and I made a mental note to plant even more next year as they are just so lovely. It was the same thought process last year that has lead to a plethora of sweet peas radiating their glory inside our house.

and the golden orb of our blood orange promises freshly squeezed juices laced with vitamin C

 

So I raise a glass to this mid August weekend and reader I hope you too can appreciate the beauty that buffers us from the sometimes manic, crazy lives we inhabit xx
