A civilized cup of tea!

Standard

 

I am busy getting my front room in order,

painting ,

changing furniture,

removing shelves,

pictures,

moving things about.

I have made myself a small “coffee table”

out of Pallet Wood (with wheels).

 

 

I am christening it with

my first civilized cup of tea in my front room

 

 

In style of course.

Come and enjoy it with me.

 

Kindness for yourself

Standard

Even as kind people using kind words when we speak,

we do not follow this when we speak to ourselves.

I know I sometimes say ‘oh how stupid I am’ , after I cut myself in the finger for example.

There is no need for that as we do not need to put ourselves down.

Accidents happen and we sometimes do the wrong thing.

We do learn our lesson.

 

Listen to how you speak to yourself.

Try to use kind words to yourself

and let “kindness flood into the world”.

 

 

No Plans Day

Standard

How about a

No Plans Day

 

Slow down and let spontaneity take over.

Do what you just feel like doing!

Go out with no plan

 

Years ago we went to Germany with our car.

In Germany we had a no plans day and drove out.

The children always told me at a junction which direction to go,

we didn’t know we ended up.

Like that I gave my children a sight seeing tour of the area where I grew up.

As I knew the area well, I could find our way home again.

It was great fun.

A drive out with no plan to go anywhere.

 

Have a no plans day and

enjoy every moment.

 

Changes again…

Standard

Hi there , Thomas here.

I am updating you with news from our household.

Things are constantly changing here and it is hard to keep up with it.

One minute there is furniture,

next minute an empty room,

then suddenly more boxes and

then new furniture.

Of course I am the first to try it out.

 

It got my approval, although my mum has now filled it with stuff,

so I can’t jump up anymore.

I guess that is what it is for.

I found a nice space with my friends.

The room has changed and I still find cosy places, so I am happy!

Changes can be hard

then can work out beautifully!

 

Stay strong

Standard

Over the years I have enjoyed my loyal Primula in a pot in my garden.

Every year it is the first plant to bloom.

This picture is from 30th March 2016

That plant is going through all type of weather, recently snow, winds, heavy rain …

it is quite old and yet

it keeps blooming, giving me joy.

It has now ( 30th March 2018) even more flowers.

It stays strong through it all.

We need to be strong too, when we go through rough patches,

and keep on blooming.

We are stronger than we think and like the flower,

we can get through it !

Have a strong and blooming day!
