::inspiring Mondays::

singing to you
I had a lovely, relaxing, and shall I add chilled, weekend. It was slow moving and the sun shone all the time and I wore flip flops and smiles. It was so good that last night in bed I made sure I wouldn't go to sleep just so it wouldn't end. Unfortunately for LMJ, she has very little control over the size of the weekend and Monday did arrive and she was just a wee bit more tired than desired. But… the sun is out still and life is beautiful and the birds sing and the flip flops stay put and the smiles are out and about too.
I learned a valuable and happy lesson last year. We are not alone. There are people willing to step up and show us that when the time comes. This lesson I have had repeated to me this year over and over again. It was a good thing to learn.
:: summer has arrived in Oxford.
:: LMJ texts little brother: what's up?. little brother calls LMJ. 45 minutes later life is even better. 
:: Dad's advice. Mum's chat.
:: slow Sundays.
:: knitting.
:: my camera.
:: sunshine!
:: flip flops.
:: friends.
:: the people we know.
:: ice cream.
:: ice cream weather.
:: natural light.
:: photographing in natural light.

Hazy Oxford
