The sun is shining

Finished work an hour early today – a little compensation as I need to work extra tomorrow. The sun is shining so I’m enjoying it in our back garden now while Mr Esther is still working. And see, the magnolia I got for my birthday has started to bloom!

I like using my laptop on my lap for leisure but for work I prefer a table (and using a mouse). So, unlike Mr Esther, I’ve been working inside. If the weather stays good I may start considering putting a table out for a garden office instead of a home office. Meanwhile, it’s nice watching our cat play with our daughter while the space isn’t cluttered with any work tables yet…

And our old red cat has come to take a look as well before lying down for a rest.

Spring is truly here now and Easter is around the corner. And should you be worried about the Easter Bunny – don’t be. New Zealand’s prime minister has a reassuring message…

Ah, sunshine and spring and lovely messages by Jacinda Ardern sure do cheer me up. 🌞

Spring is here!

It’s only partially sunny here today and even a tad chilly when the sun disappears behind the clouds, but it is warm enough for me to be sitting outside in our garden for the first time this year! One of our cats has joined me as well…

When I got back from my weekend in Newcastle two weeks ago, Mr Esther had already gone spring-happy, buying potted flowers for in our garden. Now our little pink blossom tree has started to bloom as well! I have mostly enjoyed these flowers (and the beginning of the pink blossoms) from through the window, I love that I can now sit and enjoy them while relaxing outside! 🙂

MTA: Now my other cat has joined me as well, she is fascinated by a bumble bee flying around here. She could catch it too, if she tried…

Her nickname in this house is ‘mass murderer’ as she is very effective at killing mice, birds and frogs
