Spring blossoms all around

 Blossoms of different colours and sizes everywhere.  Nightmare for those who suffer from pollen allergies but heavenly for some of us.
 These buds will be out in the next couple of days and it will be a sight to behold.
 I like these ones especially as they look like white roses and the branches are  heavy with them.

Dairy free cakes baked at home

My pre-teen has nut and dairy allergy but she loves cakes.

We stopped buying cakes a long time ago. frown emoticon

Then something amazing happened, she took it on herself to learn to bake. She is now making the most amazing cakes without butter, chocolate or cream. They are moist, fluffy and delicious.

Because I said so

Teen this morning told me a friend from her school, A, 16, is going to have an arranged marriage when she turns 18 and A has no problem with that.
That started it ...
"You know if I ever marry it won't be an arranged one?", she said looking angry.
"Of course darling, I know", I answered and continued, "but if you happen to bump into someone accidentally who happen to be everything you look for in a man then you won't have a problem marrying him, would you?".
"Oh my god, is it like that film where the mum find the girl a boy", she literally shrieked.
To annoy her ever more I with my most innocent smile said, "Yes, baby that is what I am talking about"

New Directions

How do you change your career direction in your 40's?

I don't know but I am about to try.  You will need a clear direction, determination, confidence and support from family. I was told I have to be like a dog with a bone to get what I want.  This is the year to see if I am that dog !!!

Rainbow reminder

This is where I worked until last week.  I took this photo as I was leaving work couple of months ago to get the beautiful rainbow.  Now it is the only photo of the place I worked.
