Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


It is those little things that make memories ...

The making of gentle memories
Is by being driven by a grinning 18 year old in his first car.
 Is going on a mini adventure with them both
Is watching the late afternoon sun bath richly laden berries
 and smelling the warmed fruit as you walk past.
 It is also the watching of the sky and feeling the air
It is the ripples on the water
and the stillness 
Then it is the walking back to the car - facing the sinking sun.
Gentle heartwarming moments,
simple pleasures which
will be remembered for a very long time.


  1. A great post and wonderful photos, I really love the third and fourth ones :)

  2. Congratulations to your son passing his test. Love the photos.

    Thank you so much for the list for the Advent Calendar, that was so kind of you. I will add the last four when I list them on my blogs

  3. The photographs are just a joy to look at. It is these simple pleasures that mean so much in the craziness of life. X

  4. A memory to treasure forever.

  5. Huge congratulations to your young man on his new wheels and new found freedom that motoring brings. Wishing him safe travels.

  6. Lovely, everyday things - memories :)

  7. Lovely Kate & I'll have to admit to thinking some of those photos are absolutely stunning & wish I had your knack for seeing the beauty in the little things, then the captive words to go with them. Congrats to DS for getting his licence & one less having to use Mum's taxi. Take care.

  8. Many congrats to your son!

  9. I bet he has a grim on his face, bigger than a Cheshire cat.

  10. Lovely photos and lovely memories....

  11. The grin was bigger than that of the Cheshire Cat when he brought it round here to show his grandparents. He even let his dad drive it home. x

  12. Stunning pictures, as always. But how can you possibly be old enough to have an 18 year old who drives :). xxx
