This weeks word is - Puzzle
A puzzle is something I think is a very underrated and soothing method of entertainment, though on the other side can be a not so fun person or thing that causes your head to hurt! haha  It's a fun word in itself too I think - Puzzle, it's satisfying to say don't you think?

Next weeks word is - Traditional

Question of the Week.
What was the toughest decision you made today?
Nothing too strenuous, boring-ly enough. Probably the decision to go into the loft and start faffing around. I know, I'm lucky I had no real decisions to make today (Yesterday).


  1. You lady are a wonderful person! I love that you went to CAB & did that. You are so inspirational but so so so soooo humble.
    Bee xxx

    1. Oh no I'm not!!! haha I should of worded that differently - it wasn't a donation. See, on the hours I work I don't pay tax or national insurance, I was asking how to pay voluntary national insurance but I gather most people that go in there must be asking how to claim benefits as she was truly shocked! haha
      Not so inspirational see ;) But thank you lovely!!


  2. That photo is stunning Danielle - I always get so excited seeing bumblebees appearing once it gets warmer, just lovely! So many great links as always too, will catch up on them all! And I love the fact you were at the Citizens' Advice Bureau asking about offeirng money, you're an inspiration. - Tasha

    1. Thank you! I had a bit of an argument with the bees as they kept hiding in the flowers I couldn't get to!
      Not an inspiration at all unfortunately! Merely not one of the many begging for benefits. I don't earn enough at work for national insurance contributions to be taken from my wages and so I was asking how to make voluntary NI contributions. :P


  3. I've been all about the cut grass smell at the moment :) Mmm mm mmmm. I think we're due a storm soon, so there'll be lots of the rain smell to look forward to.

    New camera sounds exciting, which did you go for?

    1. Ahh! I haven't actually even heard any lawn mowers yet! Though I do enjoy the smell, it plays havoc with my allergies! haha

      Just got the D7100. I've got the D5000 just now and its over 5 years old with so many problems. Wish I could afford a proper ace camera but the 7100 has got pretty good reviews and adverts etc for it seem focused on wildlife photography which is fab.


  4. Such a perfect spring photograph.

    I always love reading your round-up posts! I'm so jealous you're going to see The Lion King - I've been three times and would love to go again!


    1. Aw thanks!
      I'm glad you like them. It's gonna be my first time so that's a good sign if you wanna see it again after 3 times! :)


  5. That bee seems very happy with the lovely blossom :) Your new camera sounds great. My sister-in-law wants to upgrade her Nikon so I'll be watching how you get on with that :) xox

    1. He was indeed! He had a friend with him too and they were going to town on that bush! I'd recommend my new camera for sure but my old one was good too until it broke haha
