Catching Up

A bit late, but Happy New Year to all of you.  I'm trying to get back into updating this blog and I hope to have more posts in the near future.

Ced is still in hospital with no date yet for discharge.  He's contracted another chest infection (the third in two months) on the 1st January and is currently very poorly so fingers and everything else crossed that he gets over it.

I start back at work next Tuesday.  I'm not looking forward to it and am starting to think that this may be my last year of teaching. It feels time for a change but I don't know what else I'd like to do.  Watch this space on that one ...

One thing to look forward to is that the monthly photo scavenger hunt is running again, organised by greenthumb this time (used to be Kathy @ Postcards from the PP).  I'm hoping to have the time to join in.

And to finish with it's Friday so it must be Green Day with Fiona at Raindrops and Daisies so here's my green photo for today. It's a close up of a cactus.


  1. Good to see you back Eileen, but sorry to hear about Ced. Keeping fingers and things crossed for him. I've already discovered the Scavenger Hunt, so am looking forward to that.
    Best wishes for 2013 x x

  2. Nice to see you Eileen (so to speak). Sorry to hear Ced's not doing so well. I'll keep everything crossed for him to get better. What an amazing photo you're very talented. All the best for 2013 x

  3. Olá Eileen, fico feliz com o seu "post" mas também lamento que Ced não esteja melhor! A sua foto está óptima! E não desista do Blogue ou faça outra coisa de que goste! Se puder continuar a ensinar penso que é óptimo, porque estar fora do trabalho não é muito bom! Desejo as melhoras de Ced e um Feliz Ano Novo. Abraços. Ailime

  4. Lindo close do cactus! parece sorrir!
    lamento que Ced esteja no hospital.
    Faço votos que melhore, e volte para casa.
    Um feliz 2013 com muita saúde e paz;

  5. Eileen, hello! I don't have an idea how I have missed your posts. I have redone some of my blogging organization methods and I have you here again. Yay! I hope all goes well for your loved one. So looks like we are both trying to catch up. Happy 2013 to you!!!

  6. Love the setting of the cactus you captured! Yes, I'm geared up of this New Year (I'm never caught up so I'm used to this, lol). Hope Ced will recover soon!

  7. Acho os cactos espetaculares, sempre com suas formas arrojadas! bela participação, um abraço!

  8. Os cactos são muito lindos mas espinham muito dolorido! Beijos e ótima semana!
