Is anyone out there?

I have a large number of blogs that I visit and granted I don't comment on them all but I was wondering today if anyone out there is actually reading this or if it's for my own entertainment. Not that I really mind I just wanted to share with others and think maybe the others out there are just my imaginary friends. If you have a moment let me know you are there,I like friends.

Red Centred Lime

Donut Peach

Anyway Spring is officially here.Today was a glorious day filled with music lessons, sports carnivals in the sun and freshly baked bread. Lots of eager plants are awaiting their transfer into the big garden beds and we are starting to pick food daily from our garden.(Granted the kids eat it before they leave for school but I am not complaining about children that get disappointed that there is not enough peas )

The weekend will probably involve some more paving,gardening and taxi-ing but hey that is what being alive is all about.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine if you are lucky enough to have some.
