Hygge times from March – enjoy the spring

Here is my Hygge times – well some of them – which happened as March unfolded, as we enter April it is spring showers and bursts of sun, make the most of appreciating every season and try to look for what you love about it.

During March one of my absolute favorite things has been my new MUG- an actual mug for my drinks themed to RED NOSE DAY.

Red nose day, for those who don’t know, is a charity fund-raising day which happens every two years in the UK, and it is supported by comedians hence the red nose.

Let’s get Spring Relaxation

Lets get Spring Relaxation

Wanted to share with you the chance to see some gorgeous sights I have recently enjoyed with ‘Man of Mine’.

Spring is finally here, although I am still regularly wrapped up in a big coat and cosy hat, I am feeling spring-like when I get the chance to take in sights like this of the glorious English countryside.

Hope you will enjoy seeing these pictures we took, they were not taken all on the same day or even week, but you will get to enjoy some of the gorgeous delights nature gives. Hope they bring a spring flourish into YOUR day too.

My Johanna Basford Colouring Day-To-Day Calendar

I am so happy with this treat from the sales of Johanna Basford Colouring Calendar that I wanted to tell you about it and show you how lovely her artwork is to colour.

This is a wonderful set of colouring to do, as you may know I love colouring , see the Whimsy Colouring challenge HERE and more Johanna talk Colouring Fun – Johanna Basford

There is something so calming and creative about colouring and there are some amazing results that can be had.

What I liked about the idea of this was that the pictures were smaller and I thought probably faster to colour, although it’s not a race I wanted to feel I had completed more pictures from my growing colouring collection.

Beauty of English Autumn


Wow! Tucked into a flower bed catching my attention in the breeze.

…its all I can say to the BEAUTY of the season lately, I am a real one for NATURE, I love beautiful things… they make me skip and dance and smile and gaze…  

The surrounds I see as I meander my way through life are so amazing to me, it doesn’t matter how often I see the same place, it changes,  grows and holds new delights EVERY SINGLE TIME… (like the people I love!)

I love to photograph and I have so many pictures lined up for you to see they will carry me through the season well, I am unstoppable with a camera! I have no need to put it away as I go on a walk as I will only wear the zip out on my handbag.. open shut open shut 🙂
