Quiet house, Quiet spring mornings...

It is very very quiet at our house right now, my two teens went back up North yesterday. As a mum I miss them alot and I had a little teary eyed moment when they got on the bus. I'm use to them talking and puttering around here so the silence feels very strange. My youngest is talking about moving here at the end of the year once he finishes school in December but my daughter thinks she may stay another year with her dad and complete Year 13.

I have kept up with my regular walking patterns though, this morning after the other half had left for work I ventured out and caught this sky with it's stormy grey and orange clouds in the distance over the local primary school.

And there may be changes in the works but I'll keep you posted...


  1. What a dramatic sky!! Beautiful shot. Have a nice weekend!

  2. Beautiful photos. I will be missing my teens next year as one is going to uni and the other is going on a year long student exchange.

  3. It must be very hard when your children are not living with you full time. But as with the sky there is light at the end of the tunnel..

    1. Hi yes it is hard sometimes, they have always been with me so it's strange trying to get use to it, sadly earlier this year I lost my job and ended up having to move to another city for more work since one is 15 and the other is 17 I felt they were old enough to make their own decision as to whether they wanted to move with me and shift schools halfway through the year or finish their schooling and then think about moving at the end of the year. At the moment they are living with their dad who lives about 10 mins walk from their school so it's worked out well :-)

  4. Wonderful morning -love the morning colours- and beautiful blossoms.
    Greetings, Hilde

  5. I have enjoyed making blog friends on the other side of the earth. As we see fall approaching and then the season I sort of dread, winter, it is nice to see pictures of spring emerging at least somewhere! It makes the seasons more bearable for me. I remember how much I missed my kids when they went off to college, I'm guessing it's a bit harder with them a bit younger. How kind of you to put their desires ahead of yours. They will remember that. Changing schools isn't easy for anyone!

  6. I will be the the same boat next September, my youngest will be going off to college. I need to get a project going to divert my attention, another old motorcycle sounds like a good idea.

    The budding tree is awesome, it makes me look forward to Spring.
