Colours of my Friday

There’s white light streaming through my windows that I painstakingly cleaned yesterday. Clean windows make this Mama happy.

There’s all the colours of the rainbow on my kitchen bench from my rambling garden outside and the spilling over fruit bowl from the shopping this morning. Stocked cupboards and fresh flowers from my garden also make this Mama happy.

There’s red from the photinia hedge out the front which looks so lovely against the green grass that is growing before our eyes. And some red from the Dahlia’s just picked up from the fruit shop.

Pillows have been plumped up, beds made, fridge stocked with booze and food and the house cleaned. Which means one thing right? Visitors! My little sister and her husband (yes, the chef) and my surrogate sister are coming down for a few nights. We shall eat, drink, natter, eat, drink in the sunshine, play with the kids, laugh, sit by the fire pit and eat and drink. It shall be quite marvellous and I just about can’t wait! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
