spring is on the way....

After several wet and dreary days we woke to a beautiful morning, full of the promise of spring.  Both the oldies had an inset day and were invited to sleepovers last night....getting four children ready is sooo much easier than six we were bright and ready  for the morning school run.

I spent the morning having coffee and chatting with my mum at a local garden centre, it was a very welcome break in a busy week. We  saw these gorgeous flowers in the entrance and had to buy them to welcome in the promise of a new season.                                            

They weren't just beautiful flowers but are in a gorgeous container as well.

They have made me cheery happy every time I open the front door and were even half price - a bargain for all the cheerfulness they will bring us.

The beautiful morning also meant I could finally hang the washing outside to dry. Ruby's quilt (made with much love by her Grandma) looked very pretty blowing in the breeze.

The lovely weather also meant a very lively little boy can run off some energy!
