Day 88 #onedailypositive #zen #fmsphotoaday #ImReading #snaphappybritmums #project365
I wasn't actually reading anything at the moment, I've been too busy settling into our new lives in Dubai. I don't need time for me anymore now the kids have left home, I just work to my own agenda, there are no time constraints on me anymore, but I do need to learn to switch off and rest a bit more. It's getting very hot now during the day and I find it difficult to just 'rest', so my plan today between 12 and 2pm is to lie on the bed, put the fan on, line up some drinks and my lunch and just read. I thought the title of this book is just perfect the situation, I'm an expat, a lady who lunches.
Day 89 #onedailypositive #OnMyTable #fmsphotoaday #texture #snaphappybritmums #project365
Living in a hot climate for the past 5 years means that the marking of the year as it pasts by is no longer done by seasons. When we lived in the Southern Hemisphere we decided to mark the seasons in the same way you mark them in the UK, with Easter, Autumn and Christmas but as spring was in October I never managed to succeed as the table would be decorated in spring colours of yellows and greens, the decorations were halloween and it never looked right. Back in the Northern hemisphere with the weather is just hot, very hot and melting at least with it being spring and coming up for Easter I can decorate the table to reflect this. We have a handful of fluffy chickens that the cat took a fancy to, a little wooden chicken box and a plastic inflatable daffodil on a bright red table cloth, many textures. There is no longer any involvement from the kids in regards to decorating or crafts, but I'm sure the 15 yo will snaffle up his chocolate egg and take part in the festivities somehow.
Day 90 #onedailypositive #twotone #fmsphotoaday #jewellery #snaphappybritmums #project365
Another dig in the 'dressing up' box for today's photo prompts. This time a bangle of my mums from the 1960's.
Day 91 #onedailypositive #lunch #fmsphotoaday #fool #snaphappybritmums #project365
Homemade tuna pasta salad for lunch. The #teen is here for his school holidays, he likes all the ingredients, but not all mixed together, so he's the fool for turning down lunch.
Day 92 #onedailypositive #building #fmsphotoaday #yellow #snaphappybritmums #project365 #emaar
I love it when two photo prompts go together this easily. I'm do glad I made the effort to take this photo last night as we're in the middle of a sand storm and from where I stood to take this picture last night I couldn't even see the mosque from the same spot this morning.
Day 93 #onedailypositive #thisisgood #fmsphotoaday #hat #snaphappybritmums #project365
'this is (a) good' way of looking after my 'hat' and helping it stay in shape. The teddy bear is from America from my Aunt and along with the whicker chair were given to me on my 1st birthday. This year I will be 44.
Day 94 #onedailypositive #Istoodhere #fmsphotoaday #eggs #snaphappybritmums #project365
I stood here, hubby stood here and the teen stood here, looking and longing for the past 3 days. Tomorrow they will be ours mwhahahaha
