Seven Things I love about Where I live...

My good friend Karen from Tilly Rose, passed the "Make me Smile Award" on to me, thank you so much Karen your Blog Tilly Rose always makes me smile and as requested in return here are Seven Things I love about Where I live... they make me smile lots and create a great sense of belonging and pride. Here goes;

No. 1 Our lovely lakes at home, the one below is just a field away from my house, no matter what direction you turn from my home you will come across lakes. In our County alone there is said to be a lake for every day of the year.

No.2 Our country houses, dotted throughout the rural area, I love exploring these grand houses and getting a glimpse into what life must have been like living in such magnificent surroundings.

No. 3 Our windy country laneways which are very narrow but create a great sense of the unknown around each corner, we have high hedgerows along most of the laneways so your always wondering what's behind them or around the next corner you turn- It's always a surprise :o)



No. 4  The sky from my bedroom window throughout the year

No. 5 My family and my boyfriend are what make my house a home and my space a place in the world. They bring all the love and joy to my life :o) They are somewhat camera shy so no photographs of them- sorry, but just imagine very good looking people with friendly smiles and warm hearts :o)

No. 6 My belongings... I have way too many favourites to start posting photographs but here are a few. The first is my wee tattered and torn teddy, the second photograph is a crochet handbag my gran made which I dyed (she has since passed away) and the final photograph is of the organ she left to me.


No.7 And last but not least the green green grass of home...
