I am glad that last week has ended

I have no particular reason to be glad the week is over.

I just feel relieved.

How bizarre, I know.

But I never said I wasn't strange hahahahaha

Next week is going to be painful for me literally.

I have to have a couple of lumps cut out. One on my leg and one on the back of my head in the hairline (behind my left ear).

Not looking forward to that!

I need to post photos of our beautiful mulberry tree.

Every summer, this tree plays a big part in my boys lives.

They spend endless hours climbing it and eating the mulberries.

This year they have said they are going to try and eat all the berries before the birds can get them.

You go boys!!!!!!

I took these photos a couple of weeks ago when the berries started growing.

Now the tree is in full bloom.

The mulberries are red, ripe and juicy ....... yummy!

(I'm sure this crazy weather has the fruit too early but we'll still enjoy it)

Peach, Nectarine and Plum

Don't you just love stone fruit?

I do!

We have peach, nectarine and plum trees.


Peach(peach flower very similar to the Nectarine)

At the moment, they are flowering and starting to fruit.

The trees look absolutely beautiful in full flower (but I missed that shot)

I hope the fruit are nice this year.

Last year, the fruit dropped off before they were ripe.

If not the birds, its the bugs.

One of the few things I like about Summer is the fruit :D

My baby is turning 4!!!

Tuesday is Cameron's 4th birthday.

It still amazes me how quickly life is rushing by now that I'm older.

When I was a kid/teenager, time used to drag and I listen to the boys complain about how long the day is etc and I'm thinking, no way, time is flying by so fast.

I wish that time had dragged by slowly now my kids are growing up.

I haven't had enough time with them while they are young.

Soon I'll be posting about them by teenagers I'm sure.

Today we had a small family birthday party for Cam.

He got some great presents and his cake had to be yellow cupcakes with chocolate icing.

At least they tasted great.

Will post some photos of them when I load them.
