The Gallery – Outside My Front Door….


I know I'm a bit late with this week's entry but here we go....This weeks prompt from Tara at Sticky Fingers was 'outside my front door' so a I decided to show you a picture of the beach near where I live.You can see the little incline railway running from the top of the cliff to the promenade.  It's a water balanced Cliff Lift and it's probably the oldest of its type in the world. I don't quite get how it works, I only understand that one carriage comes up while the other one goes down and it has something to do with a water pump ;-)  I've told you before I'm a bit … [Read more...]

The border area that I set aside for growing vegetables is all overgrown and I still haven't got around to planting anything yet.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy….


 I know, he's not really a baby anymore, even though the first thing he said this morning was 'Am I still your baby Mammy, even though I'm five?'  But he still feels like my baby and I can't believe he's five already.We had a fantastic birthday party for him tonight and he's now in bed absolutely worn out.  All of his friends came and everything went smoothly, the most traumatic moment was when someone got chips instead of munch crunch veg - oh the tears ;-).   He came home with more Ben 10 toys than anyone could ever want, along with some other rather … [Read more...]
