Z is for

Z is either for Zipwire or catching some Zees.

I’m going with the nap option, on the basis that I imagine very few of us have a zipwire in our gardens – assuming we even have a garden.

Plus, napping is a superpower I have yet to develop

I’ve never been able to nap, so it’s a skill set I am lacking and extremely envious

I originally created a series of alphabet based ideas to help lift spirits in 2016. You can see the final post of that series here and that will give you a bit of background as to why I did so.

Since 2016 I think I’ve become a tad more proficient with social media, and I’ve gained extra pals – many of whom are incredibly supportive, so I’m giving their blogs (in no particular order) a shout out here, some I’ve mentioned before, some blog often, some more rarely. Meeka’s Mind ; Tall Tales From Chiconia; Wild Daffodil; Luann Udell; DV Berkom.

Do pop over and visit them if you have the time. And if you follow me on any social media – check the comments from other people, and wander over to their sites. That’s how I discover just about everyone, it’s a rabbit hole – but of the best sort.

And if you haven’t started blogging – why not have a go? It’s incredible how one can find like minded people all over our planet and you’ll stumble across other blogs too – I learn so much this way. Thanks so much for reading, and do pop back occasionally.

Today’s photos are from this week’s pre-Easter allotment visit and are the promise of things to come.

Properly #CheeryUppy.

    • thank you so much for saying that. It’s really kind of you. If you use twitter or instagram, I and a couple of like minded people post regularly under #CheeryUppy on them, so you can always dip in and out, with that hashtag 😉 Have a good week x

    Awww, thanks for the shout out! Exit, stage left, singing “Zippedy doo dah, zippedy day”. Also, I’d like to direct you to one of my favourite sites for personalised gifts and general loveliness, Zazzle (https://www.zazzle.co.uk/) – no affiliations, I just love them. I’ve enjoyed the series a lot 🙂 Happy Easter!

    • Thank you! I and a few pals continue with posts on Twitter and Instagram under the #CheeryUppy, so if you use either of those platforms, you can add that hashtag to your followed links, and there will be something most days that makes me smile. And IG also has my #WierdoFruitOfTheDay as and when we grow something bizzarre 😉 And – why not start your own a-z?!
