Sometimes the years seem to roll by so quickly and other times they don’t. Yesterday my youngest granddaughter turned ten years old, and it doesn’t seem that long ago since she was just a babe in arms.
Her hair is the same colour that mine used to be, and we had a fascinating conversation about old people having grey or white hair. I figure she thinks I am really ancient!
Last year I experimented with cutting back the strawberry plants to help them fruit better a second year and it seemed to work quite well, so I have done the same again this year.
This coming weekend will be a holiday one (no work on Monday) as it will be Kings Birthday Weekend. It is taking a bit of getting used to calling it a different name after calling it Queens Birthday all my life.
We have no plans for going away – over the years, I have discovered it is best to stay off the roads on public holidays if I can possibly help it.
If the weather is nice, there are things I can do in the garden. If it isn’t nice, I might just curl up with a book!
Have an awesome happy day 😊
HEADER PHOTO FOR JUNE 2023
This photo was taken in Autumn 2019 when I travelled over Arthurs Pass in the Southern Alps. There are several places showing these rocky limestone outcrops, the most famous being Castle Hill (a place much loved by rock climbers but also fascinating to walk amongst the rocks).
