Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Monday, first day of the new week.
First of all, thanks to Sue for helping me work out how I can add my own image as a background. The route was slightly different but once I found Background Image, it was fine.
Now I need to find a suitable photo from my files. I have plenty for Christmas but none of my own for Autumn so maybe a photo walk is in the pipeline - or go onto my laptop and dig out a photo from my holiday - yes, that might work. For now, I've just used an old photo from Hyde Hall. Thanks, Sue, much appreciated.
As expected, by around ten yesterday morning, I was so weary I sat down and went to sleep. I felt much better after that.
In the afternoon, I went round to Beth's and had a nice chat, which was lovely.
The evening, of course, was taken up with Strictly. No spoilers but that was a surprise!
I did a lot of knitting too.
I got a text from my friend, Chris. The much looked forward to baby, her first grandchild, has arrives. A little boy, healthy and feeding well - that's all I know but what a happy event. I really much get wrapping paper, etc, for the blanket, etc, now.
So it was a pretty quiet day but a really nice one.
Today, I have circuits but that's about it so I'll give the house a bit of a blitz, do some gardening and maybe take the camera out for a walk! :-)
A short one today. Have a lovely day and stay safe and happy. xx
A new baby... How lovely. That's such nice news isn't it.ReplyDelete
It really is. The happiest days are when babies come - that's a quote from somewhere but I can't quite remember where. xxDelete
It's from Gone With the Wind ... “Oh, yes, Mammy. The happiest days are when babies come.”Delete
Hope you have a lovely day xx
Oh, yes - Melanie says it, doesn't she? Thanks. xxDelete
You take such nice photos, Joy. xxReplyDelete
Aw, that is lovely. Thanks Sooze. xxDelete
It's nice to have a personalised background to your own blog isn't it. Well done on finding the way. Blogger seems to change things around just as we get used to them.ReplyDelete
It is nice, thanks for the help. xxDelete
Goodness, I have had a lovely catching up session here with you Joy. A wonderful holiday in the Peak District with Suzanne, a wedding and the birth of a new baby grandson for your other friend Chris. Such a lot of happy news. Thank you xReplyDelete
Love the Elmer jumper, again so cheerful and full of kindness and love.
Enjoy the rest of your day x
Welcome back - I enjoyed reading about your holiday too and seeing your lovely photos. There have been some lovely things happening recently. xxDelete
What joy-a new life into the world. My poncho style “oodie” arrived late yesterday and it is fabulous. Soft, warm and ankle length. CatrionaReplyDelete
They are lovely, these oodie type thingies, aren't they. So cosy and snuggly. xxDelete
How wonderful a new baby in your friends family. Love your photo background.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jackie. I'm glad to know how to do it at long last. :-) xxDelete
Love the new background image. XReplyDelete
Thanks, Jules. I'm grateful to Sue for the info. It'll be nice to change it now and again, maybe to match the seasons! xxDelete
