Punting

Standard

A day out works wonders – like a mini holiday.

You come back refreshed and relaxed.

I tried it for you to give you experienced advice.

We went for one day and night to Cambridge, the famous University town.

 

Cambridge is a city on the River Cam in eastern England, home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University colleges include King’s, famed for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate. University museums have exhibits on archaeology and anthropology, polar exploration, the history of science and zoology.

Walking along the river Cam are many bridges- hence the name Cambridge.

We came along punters and we signed up for some punting.

 

 

What an amazing experience, what fun!

 

 

 

The Sky was blue,

the weather was hot,

a real mini holiday!

My advice:

Go for a mini holiday,

do something different at the spur of the moment,

enjoy every moment

and have fun.

 

You feel refreshed, relaxed,

ready for the new week!

Caturday- Snooze day

Standard

My mum has bought me a new cat tree….

however I made sure she knows that it is too high for me..

I am a senior after all.

She got the message and she took it apart again

and made two relaxing places out of it.

Now I love them and can happily relax!

I can choose the sunny place or relax in the shade.

Guest post: Cat in the Box

Standard

As my mum is out

I jumped on the computer

to show you my favourite places.

From the title you can see it is a box,

yes anything enclosed, I love

additional to my mum’s lap of course.

There are always new places appearing in my house,

boxes and others.

I utilise them all.

I promised my friend Binky to show my relaxing places.

So here we are:

the box on the sofa

 

the box on the floor

the tiny shoebox

the rocking chair

 

my mum’s computer desk,

I just swipe things of the desk and get comfortable.

 

the drawer in my mum’s son’s room

Yes I am allowed

 

Isn’t it just wonderful how many places I have to relax and snooze!

So now it’s your turn,

find a peaceful spot and have a snooze.

 

Wishing you all a very relaxing weekend!

Weekly Inspiration No 30 – Stillness

Standard

Slow down

find a moment of stillness.

 

Specially when you don’t have time for it,

sit down and be still.

Give yourself thinking time,

It gives you different perspectives,

it gives you peace and calmness,

it reduces the stress.

Focus on

Love, Joy and Peace

We are always so busy in our lives,

with chores, and general life.

Often we forget to look after ourselves.

Meditation

Standard

Come into my garden,

close your eyes,

and join in a short meditation.

crochet6

Make yourself comfortable,

Listen to the sounds of the garden,

bees buzzing,

birds chirping,

rustling of the trees,

feel the sensation of the warm sunshine on your skin,

feel the small breeze against your cheeks,

breathe in the warm air,

gently breathe out,

feel the peace within you.

Focus on the stillness of the garden,

some background noises far away.

Let your thoughts wander,

empty your mind,

feel the stillness and peace.

Concentrate on your breath – in and out.

Feel gratitude for this peaceful moment you can enjoy.

***

Slowly start wiggling your toes,

Move your fingers,

open your eyes,

stretch your arms and back,

ready to go back to a relaxed and wonderful day!
