They enjoyed a good chat and cuddle next to Spring flowers.

After a week of sunshine he said good bye to Germany in rain

which gave us a beautiful picture of this snowdrop.

Lets make February a month where we focus on Gratitude.

 

How often do you say thank you and really mean it?

What are you most grateful for?

Consider the things in your life you frequently take for granted

like health and love and friendship.

Choose to appreciate them,

feeling thankful does feel good.

Choose appreciation instead of expectation.

Have a gratitude journal which cultivates an attitude of gratitude.

Ask 10 questions to 10 new nominees (who have less than 200 followers)
Notify them

Here are my replies to the 10 questions from Debra:

Can you remember what it was that inspired you to set up a blog?

The initial thought was to have my own website and get to know IT and the internet better. I found blogspot and then wordpress and loved it straight away. The idea that people all over the world can read what I publish is just awesome. 

When was it that you published your first ever blog post?

That was on 9th June 2012, wow long ago. 🙂

How would you describe your blog?

It is an inspirational blog,  with thoughts of daily life, trying to bring smiles and happiness to the world. 

Do you blog as a profession or for fun?

I love it and do it for fun and happiness.

What is your preferred setting when you sit down to blog and publish your writing/photography?

I love to sit in front of my computer, I have 2 monitors where the blog post is being written on the right and I look for pictures and quotes on the left screen, put them into paint to get ready to import into the post. Having a cup of tea nearby is almost a must!

Are there any hard and fast rules you set for yourself when it comes to blogging?

No rules just fun and enjoyment!

What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you most enjoy?

I love meeting new people via the internet with similar ideas like me. I have already made wonderful friends and met 2 blogger friends in person.  I love reading posts of my blogger friends and get inspiration from them and that makes me happy also I learn about other countries and people through other blogs. It is a wonderful way to communicate with bloggers all over!

What aspect of the ‘bloggersphere’ do you find the most daunting?

I don’t really find it daunting… I don’t put any pressure on myself, as it is like a hobby otherwise I wouldn’t enjoy it so much!. Sometimes I don’t have enough time to read all blogs I like to but bloggers are understanding, it is life.

In your view, who is the main reader audience for your blog?

I don’t think I can categorize them, they are from all walks of life from all over the world and I love them all!


What do you do in your spare time that is not reflected/associated with your blogging pursuits?

I love making earrings, do jigsaw puzzles to relax and dance a lot!

 

…and here are the 10 interview questions for those who wish to take part:

  1. How did you get into blogging?

Simple and beautiful

Standard

Look at this beautiful little plant.

Sept 15 (20)

Isn’t it a pretty, delicate, little flower, perfectly formed, presenting its yellow and purple colour.

Yes, it is a simple potato plant.

The simplest things are sometimes the most beautiful ones.

Not only orchids deserve mention and being photographed for their beauty.

It is the same with people.

Everyone is beautiful.

We are all different but all beautiful.

Everyone is unique,

Everyone is outstanding,

Everyone deserves the same love.

Sending love to all my beautiful friends! 

Danny’s German time

At the airport in Stansted waiting for our plane… and here it comes already!

We went to see my mum’s mum in Germany and I could see my friends!

This is in the front garden, I loved this long grass!

reutlingen august 14 (3)

I met ‘Brauni’, he is my gran’s teddy and we enjoyed some  wonderful cuddle time together!

reutlingen august 14 (29) reutlingen august 14 (7)

This is “Petzi” my sister’s very old Steiff Teddybear… he must be about 53 years old…. oh yes I can see some grey hair…. hehe. He is lovely and still dressed in my mum’s old baby clothes. He has got plasters on his paws as the straw was falling out, but his heart is a pure loving teddy heart. We did have a great chat and a lovely time together…..and when mum wasn’t watching……. we got up to bit of mischief.

reutlingen august 14 (6)

 

I climbed all the bushes in the back garden…. lucky I had fur it was quite cold for August.

reutlingen august 14 (36) reutlingen august 14 (35)

This is the town and every time my mum visits they have changed the roads or put up new buildings. This tower is one of the old towers and part of the town wall which went all round the town. Opposite is the brand new Town festival hall. A very big building I thought.

At the end I found a picture of my mum being about 21 then… I couldn’t help myself and sneaked it in the post… hope she doesn’t notice!

This is me on our way home again…. quite exhausted….
