We have a long weekend!

Can you remember the carefree days of having fun, flying a kite?
When I was a small girl, my family and I would often take our kites over to the park and spend hours watching it swirl, play and dip, around in the sky.

While reading some inspirational thoughts I came across this memorable little piece.

"I did" said the wind
"I did" said the paper
"I did" said the string
"I did" said the boy.

In reality they all flew the kite. If the wind had stopped blowing or the paper had torn or if the string had got caught in a tree, or the boy had fallen over, then the kite would come crashing down to the ground. That is what life is all about, all working together and doing what we can to
help one another.
I did manage to buy a few things to take home in my suitcase ~ David Jones was having a sale and I picked up this Vivienne Westwood cardi and a pair of shoes.
It is always nice to pick up some duty free products at the airport.

We have a three day weekend, Queen's Birthday { smile} ~ one of the pleasures of life!
Also it is my DH's birthday, on the 6th of June, so a little celebration and some relaxing is what I am going to be doing this weekend.

Thank you for all who read my blog and the lovely comments you leave for me, and for the new followers ~ I appreciate you all.
Just want to wish you all a happy weekend.
Hugs
Carolyn

  8. Many thanks for visiting me, Maria Cecilia, and how lovely to see kites flying over where you are.
    Oh yes, duty free perfumes, V and I were happy to go around and sample some of the lovely ones.

    Hi Suzi,

    We had a nice clear day today, but I think that it is meant to change later on in the weekend.
    Oh well, nothing much you can do, but to relax and enjoy whatever is going to be. Thanks for your visit and have a great weekend.

    Hugs

    Aren't you lucky to be able to wear those wonderful high heels? I had to give them up with all my back and hip problems.
