Gathering the Moments - March

March has flown by in a flash - quite scarey really.
Because I've been working full time
there just haven't been enough hours in the day!
I'm finding it hard to remember what I've done -
not many social occasions as you can see!
However starting at the top left, we had a darling
little 3 year old called Alex pop in for a visit -
her Daddy is our Production Manager at work.
She was very interested in everything in the office
and happily played with some paper and felts!

I won the beautiful peace angel giveaway on Julies blog.
The cute little picnic scene was Julie's card
and the Gardener's Soap was a gift from her too!
Thank you again dear Julie!
We walked past 'Soul' restaurant on our way
to the boat that took us out on the harbour,
a very sad day as it was the memorial
service for Cheryl, 39 year old daughter
of my friend Ruth
who lost her six year battle to cancer.

On a lighter note the following Saturday
my friend Thelma and I had lunch at a great
french cafe in Devonport.
I made a simple pasta dish with the orecchiette
for dinner one night and forgot to photograph it!!
Katie at work on St Patrick's Day
when we all wore green.

A board in the french cafe
cute little cottages in Devonport
our dinghy in the shed where
my husband is restoring our old classic launch!
 Other things happened but my camera was at home!


I'm joining Cheryl for her monthly party
maybe you would like to join us and
show us what you've been doing in March!
Thank you Cheryl for hosting
your party where we can look back
and see what happened to the month that was!

Wishing you a very happy week
with some warm Spring weather for my friends
in the Northern Hemisphere
I get the feeling
enough is enough!!!
 Take care and be kind to one another
   Merci à bientôt



  1. A lovely gathering of special moments, Shane. The angel is beautiful! xxx

  2. Oh and you have gathered some tender moments...the ones that made you smile and the ones that made you feel sad. Such a loss for your friend. May she know comfort.

    What a cutie pie Alex is! Bet that she brings a spot of cheer wherever she is.

  3. This is a great idea -- I really love all the photos and it looks like you had just a marvelous time! Can't wait to see what April brings!

  4. Shane, it seems that your month of March was quite full! Full of working, yes, but also full of little "moments." I am sorry for your friend's heart wrenching loss. It is good to see that you had joyful moments as well.

    Little Ava is darling. I'm sure she brightened up the workplace!

    Thanks for linking up again this month!

  5. I enjoyed your activities and sharing from March Shane. This meme also appeals to me and I'll try to remember to join in next month.

  6. Lots of memorable moments in March...say that 3 times fast. Little Alex, what a cutie! The "Peace Angel" will be a nice addition to your home. I could have used some of the Gardener's Soap yesterday, as Spring seems to have finally sprung, bringing lots of outdoor work.

  7. Thanks for sharing this lovely post with us. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  8. It's fun to look back on the month and remember the moments. I'd forgotten some of them until i looked back at my photos.
    Looks like you made some good memories too! :)

  9. Hope you have a wonderful April! Congrats on winning that sweet angel. :-)

  10. March did fly by it seems. I like how you captured the moments in your collages...

  11. It's nice to have a glimpse into your month. It's amazing when we look back how much actually happened.

  12. Lovely photos! The angel is darling. So very sad about your friend's daughter. xo Jen

  13. Thanks for sharing your month. I hope you have an amazing April.

  14. Thanks for sharing your month. I hope you have an amazing April.

  15. It's so lovely (and important!) to remember the special happy moments that come to us, Shane. You're so wise to collect them this way. Sadly, the days do slip by so quickly when work pulls you out of the house. I'm counting the days until summer when I can be at home all the time! Wishing you lovely days ahead.

  16. Dear Shane,

    March did seem to fly, I found that too! I enjoyed seeing all the lovely moments in your life. Alex is a darling and must be a joy to have around the office.
    Congratulations for the lovely win - the Angel is sweet.
    So sorry to hear of your friends, daughter - sending my sincere condolences and may she know of comfort at this sad time.
    Happy week

  17. What a sweet little post of all your special moments. Lovely angel too. Thanks for stopping in for a visit!

  18. A gorgeous Gathering the Moments post dear Shane. I am so glad my angel came to rest in your home. Yes March has gone by so incredibly quickly - you will be looking forward to the full time work ending soon. Happy week to you x0x0

  19. What a lovely March review.
    Sweet Alex!
    French restaurant!
    Sadness of the loss of your friends daughter.
    Take care of yourself as you have the hectic schedule.

  20. A month full of the mixed joy and sorrow that is life. It's hard when someone so young passes away.
    Little Alex is a charmer, I'm sure she brightened up the office that day.
    I hope April brings you much joy, Shane.

  21. A beautiful collection of photos from your busy month. Blessings to you today.

  22. Café lunches, visits from children, remembering... life! And pasta makes it even more enjoyable :-)

  23. Yes, March seems to fly by so fast, and you remember much more than I could account for on my part :)

  24. Dearest Shane,
    Such a cute 3-year old is like spring itself and it does cheer us up.
    Spring is unfolding here nicely and the weather great; if we only would have a steady internet connection...

  25. Dear Shane,
    I`m glad you had little moments of relazing time with your husbond and friends, and that little cute girl.
    Now you as I understand,- are off work again, and you can sit down in your studio, or whatever you want or need to do. :-)

  26. Thank you for sharing your memories of March in words and pictures - happy and sad moments make up life. May your April days be peaceful ones.

  27. Beautiful March Gathering Moments, Miss Alex is so adorable,.special time with friends is so special. My thoughts and prayers go out to your friend. Thanks for sharing.
    blessings, Sue
