Winter Blues.....and Reds and Yellows.....lots of colour!!!

Hi Peeps!

I hope you all had a great weekend/4th July/Bastille Day/ celebration!

It has been deep into the depths of winter here - blue skies, sunshine, not a lot of rain or wind but has it been a bit nippy in the morning!!!! Today (Sunday)  got up to 10 degrees and was a grey day mostly, although the sun did come out for part of it - however, the outside world was just a bit bitter so I mostly stayed in!

I hope you are enjoying the summer where you are or a better winter than us anyway! It is that time of year when small things seem to get a bit unsettled by the weather as well - and when this photo popped up in my FB feed earlier this week I knew I had to share it with you all. A baby pademelon - yes, that is correct - pademelon, a type of small kangaroo - and it came from Image: Tasmanian Walking Company (via IG)

This little bundle of cute is a Tasmanian pademelon: http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/?base=4863

Isn't that a bundle of cuteness! It is probably an orphan being hand-raised.

Now you have had the awe moment, take a deep breath and plunge into the inspiration from the DT and begin to plan your entry into the current challenge

#70: Every Day is Special 

TWIST lots of colour


We all know someone who could be cheered up with a note or a gift or a word of praise or thanks - and how easy it can be to achieve this for them with a little thought. We don't have to wait till a birthday or a special celebration to notice people. Living each day is special - lot's of people don't manage that! Some live but in a world without colour.  Let's brighten up their world. 

This is the prize:

June's Winners and some more inspiration........

Hello Peeps! Welcome to our challenge blog. Sometimes running a blog is a challenge in many ways and this last few weeks have proved to throw up one of those challenges!

Here is one - parrots eating berries from the cotoneaster tree and leaving the droppings all over the back stairs each day! They are being tramped into the house and leaving red marks on the tiles!

There are two of them at work today and the mess they make!!!
Lucky they are so cute, eh.


Another challenge - my husband is OBE (Over Bl.... Eighty) and for the last few months, has been getting cellulitis in his legs. Oh joy, oh bliss!! He is currently suffering an outbreak but is not hospitalized this time - oh, and he also has somehow contracted chicken pox!!

Life is so strange. I also have had a bit of a virus so my enthusiasm and energy has been less than optimum. Blog land is running a bit behind for me........

I have to announce the June winner for the challenge "To the Men in our Lives" (TWIST: add an animal or bird......

Random Number winner: No 5 Bev

Challenge #70: Every Day is Special with a Twist of colour!

Hello Peeps! We make a lot of things for special occasions and don't often think of the every day but really - there are small things done every day that make a change in lives and need to also be acknowledged. Our neighbour provided a favour for our family during a recent period that made life so much easier for all of us at the time. For her it was not that big a deal but for us it was especially good - that was a biggie; but there are also small things that happen every day that make you realise that life is better as a result. A smile, a helping hand,a lovely sunrise or sunset,  a thing not said or a special comment made...each of these things can make every day special.

So, that is our challenge: recognise the special......

#70: Every Day is Special 

TWIST lots of colour

There is a prize - announced next week!

We have had some lovely sunsets lately - here is but one that gladdens the heart and makes one smile regardless of what the rest of the day has thrown at you.
