the teenager's prom preparation.

End of week one of exams. order prom shoes online. 

many shoes.

end of week two of exams. pounce upon parcels containing many shoes and pretend to be Cinderella?

Have alarming amount of hair cut off.

3 more weeks of exams to go.

Which should give me the time I need to shorten the dress.
The shoes which were the prettiest and the best fit don't raise the hem of the dress off the floor. 
But they are Very pretty, and can be walked in, always a bonus!

It's been a week of sunshine and showers.
Some of them hail showers.
But I haven't seen a single rainbow.
I went hunting for one in my garden instead.

and learnt that I don't have any orange.

After a long day then sometimes the only thing that will do is a walk on the beach, I love the long shadows the evening sun makes.

A charity shop find finally had a makeover, and it's big brother rescued from a skip got covered to match.  They are incredibly useful as the cats really like to sleep on them, which means I stand a chance of getting to sit on the sofa.

The cats also like to sit on the fence.  Freddie also likes to do yoga on the fence it seems....

I am helping with an allotment plot with the local ranger group, we need to make a scarecrow and it is very tempting to make one like this.

Finally. Bluebells. The only free morning I had this week was spent hunting for them.
Time well spent. x

Whatever it May be.

Hello May.
I am not at all sure about some of these things about May.... I'm not that keen on new, or frightening, and especially not incredibly frightening/life threatening. Nor am I likely to break out any dance moves.  Breakfasting alfresco I could cope with (if the weather would please warm up), simple pleasures day I'm happy to embrace, and even complicated pleasures day. I definitely like the sound of  lie in sunbeams day, although I hope it doesn't clash with International frisbee day because that would spoil the sunbeam lying...

in reality May  is to be filled with GSCE's for Miss K, and exam invigilating for me, and thus there will be much need for cake.  and also shopping for shoes. for Prom. Sometimes to get through things you have to focus on what's at the end. (ok so it's the end is in June, but that's ok, there will be plenty of cake)
