Hello dear friends
I've had a wee break and
this is my first post in almost a month,
hence the title of this post...
"What's it all about Alfie?"
I've lost my 'get up and go'
with regards to blogging.
To be fair, after working three days a week
(at my great age, ha ha)
my energy levels are a little low.
I thought about stopping blogging
but at this stage I can't bring myself to do that
...I have made such lovely friends
all over the world
and I don't want to lose touch with any of you!
Some of you will understand
as I know you have had similar feelings.

spoke about it here
Blogging has broadened my horizons
I enjoy reading about your lives,
visiting your homes and hearing about your
children and grandies.
Most of you will be aware by now
my darling daughter and her family
live in France.
They want to come and live in New Zealand
and I pray that this will happen soon
(your prayers would be most appreciated in this regard)!
I enjoy reading posts about your gardens
a special pleasure for a keen gardener like me.
I keep a notebook on hand and
I often jot down planting schemes I see on your blogs
or the name of a new rose.
I bought my rose Pierre de Ronsard
after seeing it on Elizabeths blog
Cornish Cream several years ago!
I'm still trying to track down another rose
that I saw on Mary's blog A Breath of Fresh Air.
I think you can tell I'm not ready to pull the plug just yet...
I intend getting back to posting once a week....
but I've decided I'm not going to put pressure on myself.
I would love to hear your thoughts
either comment here or send me an email!
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration
(if Steph has returned from her blogging break)!
Please be kind to one another
Merci à bientôt
