Me On Monday

Scroll down for the Quirky Kits Blog Hop and Giveaway: the draw isn't until 9.00am Friday 4th July!

Postcard Update: We have room for one more in the Pile Of Postcards Exchange as I have now gathered 47 names. One more would bring us to a round 48 which would be 8 groups of 6. If you fancy it, please drop me an email before the end of Monday. And thank you for the amazing response! I'll be sending out the addresses very soon.
eta: we have one more participant to we're almost ready to post!

Soo..Me On Monday? I'm back - gingerly (ha!) - on two feet and it feels fantastic



So it was a less hopping, more stripey tshirt shopping, Granny visiting, greenhouse tidying, garden admiring, nostalgia indulging kind of weekend.

We went to see Granny and that always means spotting little glimpses of childhood: a box of toys peeping out from under the bed, the bookshelves Grandpa made, now we'd call them  "mid century modern", stuffed with books from long long ago, bits of the garden reclaimed after years covered in trees, and my Dad's greenhouse, still standing even after all this time. It's good to take a quick picture or two..


How was your weekend? Last week several of you gave me a wave on Monday and it was lovely! It's always good to catch up....

Bet it feels lovely being back able to run around again :)

Gotta love those peeks back into our past, something comforting about them. x

Hello Sian, so lovely to see you 'hopping' I miss having grans or even mums to go to for a look into the past. This is such a lovely meme you've got going. I'm not up to taking it on at the moment although I would like to.

Great news! So pleased to hear you are healing well.
How lovely to go back and rediscover parts of your growing up. I bet there are a few Bunty annuals lurking on those shelves somewhere!

Looks like you've got your 49...I was going to offer, but next time! Glad to see you hopping about again:):) Take it easy! We've just arrived back from 2 weeks away so it was an unpacking, opening all that mail, washing, grocery gathering weekend!!!! Yours sounds MUCH better!!!

Sian said...

Helen, would you email me please so that I can add you to the list/ sorry, I have no way of contacting you at the minute so I hope you see this

Lisa-Jane said...

Hooray for being upright and on two feet! I love those glimpses of another life and particularly love the books and Action Man!

Glad you are back on your feet.

Just love those peeks into your past. I was sorely tempted to join the postcard swap but have been banned from any more swaps till I get my arse organised (By you know who - and seeing as he posts all my stuff without charging me - I can't really argue. And organisation WAS meant to be my word for the year. Ahem.) I shall have fun seeing what you all get up too :)

laurie said...

So glad you are feeling well and looking fabulous! Isn't it funny how mid-century modern is all the rage now? I wish I had hung on to some of the things I grew up with. :-)

Hurrah for uprightness :-) Sounds like a lovely weekend.

So pleased to see you back on your feet again! Looks like you had a nice weekend - I have joined in again this week - just! Nearly forgot and then saw your post!

Karen said...

Love the turquoise converse shoes but hate the creepy action man photo.

jsquaredscrapspot said...

Oh no does that mean I've missed joining in the postcard swap?

Hooray, now you can do summer as it is meant to be, outdoors, exploring! Love the GI Joe and the peek at old books. Sounds like the postcard swap is a hugely popular, have fun with it :)

Nathalie said...

Yeah!!!! I am so happy to see you on both feet and wearing stripes :D

Hazel A.. said...

Isn't being back on the feet marvelous?! I broke my foot two summers ago (fell off my bike! ack!) and the recovery was a bummer! Glad to see you're sans casts/boots/crutches! Take 'er slow.

Maria Ontiveros said...

You look great Sian!

So glad you are mobile again Sian, great post and I love the books - very nostalgic

Gail said...

So great to see you on two feet again! Glad that you healed up before your vacation. Those books brought back memories. I wish I'd taken some pics at my Dad's place before we moved him into his retirement residence.
