Have a great, new week. I have a lot planned for this week, with lots of appointments here and there and I also badly need to get some housew**k done again. Oh well, I will have to watch something on TV with breaks for the commercials so I can swing the broom and duster in between.
Today I have a journal page in memory of my mum's birthday on July 6th 1916.
She loved flowers, and lilac, summer flowers and pretty clocks, so I have them on this page.
She didn't have an easy life, which often made her very bitter and unhappy, and living with her was hard, so I spent as much time as possible staying with various friends and aunts. In spite of it all I still visited her in London as often as I could, but it was never an easy relationship. The last time I saw her, the year before she died, she cursed me and said I would never be happy again for the rest of my life. But she didn't succeed with her curse, I don't believe in things like that. I like being happy and doing things which make me happy. We can't change the past. We just have to make the best of the present.
I am linking to AJJ, Erika's 'when it's hot challenge, as my mum was born and died in summer.
And some photos from my daily walks, mostly taken early in the morning:
A Nile goose in a tree:
Who's hiding in the tree?
Sorry, the photos aren't very clear, I was waiting for the tram and the tree was on the other side of the tracks.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
