What would be your perfect day.

I have just posted on  Latest Posts and described what might be a perfect day for me. What would be yours ?  I know we could say flying to the Maldives for a month or winning the lottery , but I mean a perfectly ordinary day that would bring you great pleasure. image

    Sunshine, swifts in a blue sky. Maybe a walk with the dog, and a sleep on the hammock image

    My perfect day would be very simple.....all the HW done (including washing/ironing), a walk along the beach with my dogs then back home to my house on the edge of the beach overlooking the sea (that bit is a dream) to sit down with a drink of something nice and cold with a good book, surrounded by lots of beautiful flowers,including agapanthus, lavender, sweet peas, stocks, cosmos.......the list is endless image And of course they would all be perfect, not weather beaten, drooping, broken or in need of deadheading image

    Oh it's nice to dream image

    In reality, perfect for me would be absolutely nothing at all to do in the house, dinner prepared for me so that I could just sit and read and enjoy my garden without feeling guilty.......that's probably more of a dream than the first post, it will never happen!!

    At the moment I  have the odd perfect day already   which for me is  a day  of   pot t e ring      in the garden  ,being able or to achieve clearing the long border     e t c . 

    I don't ask for a lot for me it's the simple things in life.

    I love working in the garden .I am my happiest.

    Getting up to a perfectly tidy/clean house with breakfast waiting for me.  IIt would be late May and there would be a blue sky with a little breeze.  The garden would be nice and tidy and there would be two spaces in the garden crying out for new plants.  I would then go the garden centre find exactly the right plants (at half price) have a cream tea and return home to plant them.  In the evening Hubby would cook a lovely meal and we would eat it outside with a nice chilled glass of Pinot blush.  He would then clean everything up. That's perfection.

    Waking up in the morning then realising that I don't have to go to work anymore as I'd retired.  Just a few years to go (I hope - never know with governments like this one!) image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    A sunny day spent with my family.....a day at the beach or a picnic by the river or just at home eating Sunday lunch cooked for me.

    And fresh clean sheets every day......

    What a lovely story SD, sadly there are still too many dogs (and other animals) that need just as much care, if there were more people willing to rescue unwanted pets they would have a happier life.

    Smokin Donkey - hope the police charged the two daughters with cruelty. I hope Roxsanne will be able to stay with you for the rest of her life - you are very kind..

    I think my really perfect day would be to wake up, turn radio on and find that the world had finally come to it's senses and wars had been miraculously abolished.

    Unlikely so I think it would just have to be a walk thru woodland watching and listening.......oh, and no bloody wind eitherimage
