Week 11 Project 365 Flowers, Family and Friends

This week has been about flowers, family and friends. The week started with a surprise phone call from my Mother in Law asking if she can come over for a visit, she arrived on Thursday. Hubby also flew to Joburg on Sunday for a week for work, there were several coffee dates with friends, shopping for a accessories for my floral dress, some gardening and the week finished with a trip to Miracle Gardens

I love to make things, but I lack motivation, having all the time in the world. My niece is getting married in the UK in April, I'm hoping I can make the trip. In preparation I've been collecting shells off the beach, one of my favourite pastimes and learning to write Arabic so I can make some table decorations for the wedding which I can either take back with me in April or send back with MIL next week.

I'm off to a wedding in the UK in April, the bride is wearing cream, the colour theme is mint and pink. I Want some help deciding what floral dress to wear.

Three reason why the beach is my happy place. 
1. I spend a lot of time on my own, while hubby is at work or away, so I make sure I go out everyday.
2. I love swimming and there are no large pools on the bus routes.
3. The beach is a 15 minute walk from my front door, how could I not love it there.
Day 71 #onedailypositive #details #fmsphotoaday #really #snaphappybritmums #project365

Communication from hubbies family is rare, so a surprise phone call from MIL over the weekend asking if she could come and visit for a week was fantastic news.
However that was that and these are all the details I have. Really can't believe I'm off to the airport this evening to collect her. Just hope I wrote it down right.

Day 72 #onedailypositive #colour #fmsphotoaday #yellow #snaphappybritmums #project365

Every time we move I have this little fantasy about creating a beautiful garden, I start by planting seeds, then I end up forgetting about them. To be fair, we've rented for the past 5 years and employed a gardener, however with this move I'm determined to stick at this because all we have in our garden right now are paved areas and giant sand pits where I think grass should be growing. These seeds were sewn only 3 days ago in a mixture of sand and soil so I'm more than hopeful they'll transplant and grow successfully. 

Day 73 #onedailypositive #love #fmsphotoaday #favourite #snaphappybritmums #project365
One of my favourite things to do is to explore new places and having recently moved to Dubai there are lots of places to explore. I love the fact that hubby wants to explore with me and how he doesn't get frustrated when I go in place after place in search of ribbon for my nieces wedding in April.


  1. I am looking forward to planting this week too :) Those dresses are lovely - I'd go for the middle one. It looks like you had a great time on that coffee morning x

    1. yep the middle one won the vote and the coffee mornings are life savers

  2. The beach looks so peaceful!!! I like the middle dress :) x

    1. i don't go there on the weekends as it's too busy, there's another beach we prefer that is more secluded

  3. So pleased there are penty of new friends out there you have made. How lovey you are learning to write Arabic. It looks awesome!

  4. Thanks for linking up to Project 365.
