April Currently.....

I'm linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently.  This is always my favourite way to start a new month - it feels so positive!





Need I add to this?!  Won't embarrass hubby any further - lol!

I'm so happy our clocks have finally gone forward for Spring.  It's means it's light now until 8.30pm and will keep going that way - so happy!  It means we have so much more time to be outside and that makes me feel good!

Have been so upset about all the media coverage of our local farmers.  We had very unexpected snow blizzards, up to 12ft drifts, which caught everyone by surprise at the severity of it.  In remote parts of Ireland people have been cut off for over a week now and the surviving animals are starving.  Royal Naval Airforce Chinnocks have been dropping supplies, hoping to keep everyone going, as so far there is not a thaw in sight.  Thousands of newborn lambs have perished - it so sad and many farmers will have lost their livelihood.

I won't dwell on Holly, but I am trying very hard to keep the good memories to the forefront and not dwell on the experience of her passing.

Spending time with barking mad Blue makes me laugh!  I need Vitamin D in my body - so sunshine is on order - I just wish the courier would hurry up!

Will be starting treatment soon, so I expect to be transformed to a tall, slim blonde in the blink of an eye!  If I can't have that, a healthy body will do just fine.  (Unfortunately, I won't be back at at school this year).

Lastly, recent experiences and good bloggy friends have helped me realise that it's important to look forward and remain positive - you can't change things that have happened, but you can live in the moment to the best of your ability, and shape your future with a positive attitude!

I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful family time this Easter and a fabulous Spring break!

Check back soon for an awesome Autism Awareness Day link up.

  1. So glad to have found you through Farley's linky this month. You truly live in one of my most favorite places on Earth!! I've heard the coverage on the news about the sheep. That's so tragic. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

      Thanks so much for stopping by - I appreciate your comments so much. It's been a tough week without her, but we're getting there. Think it's going to be hard to fill that Holly-shaped hole!

  4. Yikes, I hope those farmers can recover. That's tragic! I hope you'll be okay too. It sounds like you're going through an awful lot.

    1. I still see pictures in our media every day and it is truly heartbreaking. The recovery will be tough for the farmers and as for those poor animals, it doesn't bear thinking about!

      Thanks for your kind concerns, Chrissy - one day at a time!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thanks so much, Irene - I'll take all the help I can get!

      Some remote farmers are still cut off after 10 days! I'm a coward and have started switching off the TV when they put pics up :(

      Thanks so much for stopping by and your kind wishes!
