Hello to you.
Hope the new year is treating you all well so far?
I can be quite a miserable Martha in January, so I've taken it upon myself to do my best to stay positive and count my blessing more.
My negativity can get the better of me sometimes.
Here are a few photos of things that have made me happy this week.
Pretty orchid gracing my Grannie's conservatory.
I love the simplicity of these flowers.
Putting away the Christmas decorations is always a sad occasion but I will look forward to seeing my Grannie's nativity set in December.
Our new addition is settling in well and sometimes you'd never guess she was feral only a few months ago.
My Grannie's dog always makes me smile she's such a sweet natured girl who just wants to be loved.
Another thing that never fails to cheer me up is getting out in the fresh air.
I think we can all get a bit of cabin fever when we are stuck indoors for too long.
A nice family walk, carefully crossing the cattle grid!
This post box made me smile.
When my brother and I were children we would regularly visit this post box to send away Grannie's letters I think we took it for granted then.
Chirk Castle one of our favourite national trust places....
All closed up for winter at the moment but will be bursting with people in the spring, not to mention snow drops!
Hope your all well and happy.
Thank you for your lovely new year messages
