I've been lazing around today, not in the mood to do much around the house.

The past two weeks have been hard, both physically and emotionally, although I haven't been to work for two weeks; little one had his tonsils removed- thank God, it all went fine,only the practical issues afterwards were tough- and I miss my mum so very much. I have a few more days before I go back to school on Monday and with little one at school since yesterday, I had planned to do some housework. It's not happening though; I get tired ridiculously easily. My body is screaming for some rest - I thought I've had enough already; my mind is drawing me to my books, crochet and here, reading blogs, 'wandering around' the British countryside. My soul is with my aunt who's struggling to recover from a major surgery - I hate you cancer!

I get out on the balcony, first thing every morning, to see if there are new blooms; they bring joy, help me smile.

Beautiful slideshow, Yiota !
I'm glad to know your little one is at school and this reminds me when I was a little girl. My tonsils were too bad to me but they weren't removed ... Hard times ... so after many years dealing with them, we're good friends now :)

I'm sure when you go back to work you'll feel better ;)

Sending love and remember you're not alone. Our blogland is such a magical and special place with friends sharing and spreading love and hope to the others.

Have a beautiful and inspiring day !

I am glad that your son's operation went ok and that he is recovering well.
Sorry to hear that you are not feeling great - Thinking of you and hoping that you feel better soon. I like your Tulip slideshow - the Cowslips in our front garden cheer me up with their bright sunny yellows.

Hi Yiota. Your slideshow pics are so pretty! I assume that little one is doing well after his surgery since he's back to school - which means you did a great job being his nurse :) Now can take care of you. Rest, my friend :)

Tulips will certainly bring you sunshine and happiness. I am sending you healing wishes and thoughts from deep in the British countryside, hope it helps.

Glad you liked my Thassos cam - I have been fortunate to travel there twice now and loved the island. Also travelled to a few other Greek islands, I really do love Greece and Santorini is really pulling on my heart right now.
