At my house


At my house today I am a little flustered .
There is too much going on around here 
and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment .

I see this view
 each time I park my car at home
and as I have teenagers there is a lot of driving in and out .
It was good to take the time this
morning to take this photo,
sometimes I just need to slow down
 a bit and enjoy the view .

See how others cope at their houses over at Lou Lous .

Edited to add - Just reread this and thought it sounds like
a big whinge , it's not meant to be .
I'm busy with lots of great stuff , life is good
and I'm extremely grateful .

Whinging is allowed! Just remember more often to stop and take a deep breath, and enjoy the view!

Allie said...

Any reminder to slow down and enjoy the view is a good one, Clare - too often we breeze through our days without taking the time to look around! You have a wonderful view!

Liz said...

Wow your view is amazing! Take a deep breath, enjoy the blossoms, and remember tomorrow is another day. I always wonder when people complain about boredom...I wish I had time to be bored! Sounds like you are the same.

I didn't read it like that honey, I think we all know that feeling when life is busy, busy and you seem to be never staying still. Your view is so gorgeous and tranquil and special - and what a great reminder to stop and breathe & appreciate. Have a great week xo

A beautiful view, I need to remind myself constantly to be grateful, but we're all allowed a whingee sometimes!

I agree with everyone above. A beautiful view and certainly ok to have a bit of a whinge sometimes even if it is because you are busy with good things. Busyness can still become a bit stressful.

Thanks so much for joining in this week. Lou.

stopping is sometimes hard but I think we all need to for a bit, with the busy lives that we all seem to live. And what a lovely view!

Cat from Raspberry Rainbow said...

I love your view! So lovely. Even better it reminded you to slow down. We all need reminding some days.
Big cuddle for Toby - I have a crush on him, I think!

Leesh said...

LOVE the blossoms :)

Jodie said...

I didn't think you were whinging Clare, you were being wonderfully honest :) Life does get a little crazy, it's lucky you do have this wonderful view where you can take a moment.

It's that waining moon ! There are quite a lot of us in a bit of an off mood today :) - and really it's a fair cop - life is way to busy most of the time.

Maria said...

What a glorious view. It is nice to be able to stop and smell the roses sometimes but you are a busy Mum.

Catherine said...

We all have days where we just need to get things out there and just have some time to breath. I'm glad you got a chance to stop and enjoy such a beautiful view. Enjoy the rest of your week.:)

Pauline said...

marina said...

What's a whinge or two amongst friends!
Sounds like that lovely view is a reminder to slow down.

Cardygirl said...

Not whingeing...just talking about a hectic life! Great view!

Robyn said...

Lol, it's so overwhelming to have so many nice things to do that you don't know where to start! What you're really having a whinge about is that there's only 24 hours in a day and sometimes you'd like to just loll back,enjoy the view and veg out, whilst dreaming up the next item to make. Have fun being busy :D.

Gosh, your view is just gorgeous!

If that was my car parking view, I would probably spend a lot of time in the car. Thanks for popping into my blog and leaving a sweet message.
Your're allowed to say you're feeling overwhelmed if that's what you are. Just remember to take a little time out.
Have a lovely week.
Carmel

Hope you have a magical day,

Cyndi said...

What an absolutely stunning view, Clare. If that's what I had to look at every time I wanted to leave my house, I'd just never leave! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Pam said...

Oh beautiful view Clare! Those little flowers on the tree look so pretty. Looks a little like a stone fruit tree?
Never entered my head that you were whinging! :o) x
