Sunlit Sunday

I am so very pleased to be returning for Sunlit Sunday once again!!  All of a sudden, just within the last 20 minutes or so I feel as though the glooms have lifted somewhat and as though I am cheery again.  Thank goodness for that!!!!!!!!  I was boring myself!!!!!

What has bought about this sudden change in fortune you ask?

A collection of things, family members inviting themselves and their lovely doggies for lunch on Easter Sunday.  I am so pleased about this, we never get to entertain them and it is something that I so want to do and have wanted to do.  Although I will now go into full on panic cleaning and cooking mode I will love it!  I am very excited.  Can you tell!!!

Next, Hubby got my Easter decorations out of the loft for me and I haven't done anything with them really yet other than starting to poke things about and that has made me happy too!  In fact I didn't realise how much I had missed decorating until I started playing.


Third of all we went and bought some primulas - which I am supposed to be in the garden planting right now! - at the garden centre and it is dry enough to go and weed the ground and plant them.  I will also put some in the pot by the front door and they will cheer me as I come and go.


Next good thing is that Hubby has finally been able to cut the grass.  It has been so long and I am sure hasn't stopped growing all winter.  It has been far too wet to cut though.  Today though, finally, it has been cut!  It looks so much smarter and tidier and makes the whole garden look better.


Finally, blue skies!  Yay!  We actually have a blue sky day.  That alone would bring happiness, but with the other things I am now downright cheery all of a sudden!


Just thought you might like to know that, as you all predicted on Friday, the glooms have passed and things are on the up.

I hope that you are all having a very sunny Sunday and are all very happy!  Thank you for your cheer to me!

I am linking with Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday.  Thank you for hosting Karen!

  2. Feeling cheerful is always a good thing! And remembering that "this, too, shall pass" when troubled is another. Lovely forsythia and sweet little springy bits all over the place. Lovely to see!

  6. I am thrilled you are feeling better. Finally we have dry weather and sun but alas the ground is still very wet so the lawns are still looking neglected. Tomorrow is another day...

  7. I am glad to hear your spirits are lifted once again! Now can you please send those happy vibes and blue skies and sunshine my way? It is so gloomy here and raining...and the extended forecast shows the same for the next 10 days - gaaah! I am greatly affected by the weather and this kind of weather depresses me. I did buy myself some yellow tulips the other day and they at least are adding color and cheery to my living room.

  8. Well done on that first cut. It's always the hardest. My grass grew all winter as well and I actually cut it in December....like a crazy woman! But it will make my first cut, still awaited, much easier.

  9. I think seeing a bit of blue sky for a change really lifts the mood. It's been beautiful here all weekend.

  10. Primula...I think I remember that was David Niven's first wife who tragically died in an accident in a fall down cellar stairs shortly after they moved to California. She was called Primmie for short and she was very beautiful.
    Oh dear, sorry your primulas reminded me of this. I read David Niven's books so many times, I felt like I knew him! :-)
    Happy sunshine!!

  11. Have a great week Amy, I raked the grass so that bloke could cut it but by the time I raked out the moss and the weeds there was not much grass left!

  12. Gals to see you more cheery. It has been such a glorious weekend that it is enough to lift the gloomiest of spirits.

  13. Things are on the up for you, I like that. Easter with its promise is a spirit lifter, and now you have more people to share the day with. Colorful flowers are bringing you smiles, I am sure.

  22. So pleased to hear that you are feeling a lot brighter. I think we all needed Spring to appear with its sunny days and blue skies and the sight of Spring flowers. xx

  23. So glad you are feeling more cheerful Amy, having flue really takes the stuffing out of you, no wonder you were feeling low. Glad you have some lovely things to look forward to. It is wonderful to see the blue skies:)

  24. Glad things have dried up there and you're able to get in some gardening at long last. I like how you have left the little flowers growing in the long grass ;) Blue skies are the best for brightening your day. Your decorating is coming along nicely. Glad you are able to have some family in for Easter. We have a rainy week ahead now ... of course, it's spring break for school kids!

  25. It was great to read this wonderful cheery sunlit post! Loved all the photos. Looks like a nice bunch of birthday cards, too.? I'm kind of excited that the weather forecast shows I can mow the lawn later this week. How nice that you can look forward to some Easter company. We are excited, too, as our son and his bride of 9 months are coming for Easter weekend. They have to travel 5-1/2 hours to get here. Have a wonderful week!

  26. Ah that is great news Amy! Himself cut our grass yesterday too, I was delighted! It finally feels like spring is on its way. Sounds like Easter is going to be great in your house xx

  27. Life just seems better on a sunny day - and a sunny day with primulas is even better! I mowed the grass on Saturday, for the second time this year, and I couldn't believe how it had grown.

  28. Glad for you that the glooms have lifted. It's so easy to feel that way through the winter and at this time of the year where the weather is bouncing around. No grass to cut here just yet but at least we can see it since the snow is all gone now. Your Easter decorations look great. I always put out some kind of easter tree. Love the forsythia! Visiting from Sunlit Sunday, Liz

  29. It occurred to me that I had read your post and enjoyed the photos and then dashed off and failed to return to comment. I'm glad you were feeling better. I had a few of the glooms myself for part of this week, but spent some time with a couple of friends, sorted out something that was bothering me, and the sun is shining again. I love all the colour in your post. It hasn't appeared outside here yet, but I see some tulip leaves starting to emerge in the garden.
