Grateful Bee, Huge Achievement and Happiness

18 Mar

1   The lovely Mr S found a very poorly bee in the garden this morning and brought it in for some TLC. I made a sugar solution and put that and a little caster sugar on a plate in the shade and we put the bee close to the sugar.  After some time I looked again and it seemed to be a little better. I went back again and was just in time to take the photo before it flew strongly away. Brilliant!

2   Today I have been up to our attic! That may sound like an every day sort of thing to do but the ladder, the climb and the flight of stairs just behind me have daunted me until now! We are thinking of doing some sort of conversion up there so I had to steel myself to do it. With sticky palms and a thumping heart I did it –  and I took photos. On a good day from the front, we can see the sea. From the back, we can see Wheal Uny. Now I’ve been up once, I can do it again!

3   A friend sent me this ABC of Happiness and I loved it so I’m sharing it with you now.


I especially like H, K, L, S and W. I wonder which ones appeal most to you……..

      It’s very hard to choose isn’t it. Almost everything appeals! Thank you for taking the time to comment – much appreciated. 🙂

    Never give up on what you want. I have realized hat things do eventually happen, one just needs to be patient.
    And I miss doing Dance – need to do that again!

    One of my favourite bloggers finds three somethings that are beautiful to her each day–today the third one spoke to me–but one and two were pretty darn good too–lucky bee!
