pink, layered tulips - RHS cardiff

a couple of sundays ago, i went to RHS cardiff in bute park. laura from side street style invited me along – how could i say no? we actually went together last year too.

when spring comes around after a seemlingly endless winter, it’s always wonderful to see flowers come into bloom, trees begin to bustle with leaves and the skies are blue. as much as i enjoy seeing flowers and nature in general come back to life, it’s always going to be a special treat to go to a flower show, a place literally dedicated to flowers, gardens and nature!

i wrote ’14th march’ in the title about 3 times there. in denial that it’s half way through april already!

i had wanted to go to london this week, or next week but as always, finances don’t allow. i try and see my dad 3 or 4 times a year but that doesn’t always go to plan, and sometimes the only way i can get to london is if i’m going to an event and travel is covered. as i’m not an in demand or ‘cool’ blogger those opportunities are few and far between. i always appreciate the opportunities i do get though! i wish he could come to me from time to time but he’s too ill for that.

whilst it’s not been overly good, i can safely say this week has been better than the few preceding it. if nothing else, it’s been overall less stressful, no injuries, no overwhelming fatigue (well, none that lasted more than half a day) and the weather has been lovely. our money situation is still awful and will potentially get worse in the near future, but just for a short while i want to focus on nice, good, positive things.

a year or two ago, missing out on a few ‘snapshots’ posts would have annoyed me a bit. i always enjoy putting them together, as i love taking photos throughout the week, and even if all i say for some time comes across as negative and whingey – it’s nice to have a place where i can do that. i do try and have a good balance of positive and happy here, and realness too ..which, yes, can mean showing my pessimistic side as well as just generally being upfront about how i’m feeling, or have felt.
