Out and about

Its been quiet around this blog for a while- sorry.  We had a rather stressful time a few weeks ago and its taken its toll on any creative feelings I usually have.  But like everything that has passed and we enjoyed the bank holiday weekend with its extremes of weather and I even managed one or two passable pictures to show you where we have been! I swear it felt like November out at the Lochwinnoch nature reserve on Saturday.  It was officially too bloody cold for a picnic. The bottom photo is me and the wee one warming our hands on a coffee cup (obligatory flask of strong coffee for the adults).

Yesterday we visited Finlaystone - a beautiful country park, with some amazing Rhododendrons.  We danced inside them on a carpet of pink!

So onwards and upwards or in the words of Susan Lenzkes 'Rise higher, look up and live'!

{Have a wee read at some of my fiction here - I will post a few other excerpts in the coming weeks}.


  1. Glad to hear that you are feeling like the cloud is lifting. Lovely out and about photos! Here's to the weather improving x

  2. The pictures are lovely, but it does look chilly. I am entering a stressful period and can relate to the creativity drain. I appreciate the quote...'Rise higher, look up and live'!

  3. Glad your stressful time has passed Jo and that you've returned. It looks a bit chilly but the carpet of flowers is amazing. x

  4. Hi Jo ... lovely to see you writing again ... I loved your story excerpt ... would like to read more ... I hope all is well with you and yours ... I know that cold too ... we had one warm day this week, crazy for May ... have a lovely weekend ... Bee xx
