Question of the Week.

What is one thing you wish you could undo from your past?
Nothing. Everything happens for a reason and in turn the domino effect causes the repercussions. Each decision you make turns life into what it is and if you undid anything from the past, it is almost certain that your current story would unravel too. 


  1. Beautiful blooms and an amazing fishing heron shot. Great post. :)

  2. I love your bloom photograph, It's beautiful! Falling asleep while reading a book is so nice!!
    The answer to that question is brilliant!

    1. Thank you very much. I think it's hard to take a bad photo of all the beautiful flowers around just now :)


  3. Amazing picture of the heron! I haven't seen a heron in years. I love sunflowers, but I've never been able to grow any, I hope yours continue to bloom! I don't what I'd do if I could undo one thing, but as you said, I think anything I undid would affect my current situation too much - and I'm really happy with the way things are =] x

    1. Thank you! Oh we have LOADS here, your almost certain to see at least one every day.
      The sunflowers are now about 3'' high and have been re-potted, I'm hoping the continue to do well :)
      I'm glad to hear that ;)


  4. Thank you so much for including me Danielle, I'm glad you enjoyed my post! My Heron photo is nowhere near as clear as yours, that is a wonderful shot! I feel like I your my photographer inspiration! The note the homeless man left in that church collection plate really got to me, such a lovely story! - Tasha

    1. You're very welcome :) Oh I was very close to him though, as well as having a long lens on. That is far too sweet of you but you are fantastic as it is!
      Oh I know, wasn't it so touching?!


  5. Pretty pictures, and I love all of the animals you've encountered. ^_^

    1. Thank you! Yes me too, I am very lucky to live where I do. :)


  6. I love how much animals feature in your happy moments every week. Living in the city I don't spot as many animals in my day to day as I'd like, but I still love seeing dogs out on their walks or meeting a neighbourhood cat at the bottom of my road. The twelve ducklings and their parents sound absolutely adorable!

    I can't wait to hear how your 2016 and London trip planning is coming along! I haven't got any holidays booked but I really want to pin something down soon - it's always lovely having a trip to look forward, whether it's close to home or far away.


    1. Oh they couldn't not! :P It was one of the biggest downsides to city life for me, well I just wasn't good in the city at all to be fair. You have no idea how over the moon I was about the ducks haha amazing experience.

      We now have the Lion King show tickets booked for London this year so thats exciting! :D Looking forward to hearing more about your trip!


  7. That's such a great photo! Can't believe you caught it was the fish in its mouth!

    Ahh the dreaded smear... I survived one not too long ago too. Tis a weird thing.

    1. Thank you very much! Yep, I have a series of him walking towards the spot, plunging into the water and coming out with it. This was the one just before he swallowed it down!

      Uh it's awful eh? :( Do you get it done over there or have to come back here??


    2. I was just looking back at your replies :) I always forget to click for notifications on blogger comments.

      I had it done in Belgium, although they still haven't sent me the bill for it. Maybe it's free, I'm not 100% sure, but I also changed my Implanon implant, which is not free... I don't know.

    3. Hopefully they've forgotten the bill! Freebie!!! haha Is it much different going to the doctors over there? That'd be one of my biggest fears if I lived in another country - not being able to understand them or them understand me.
