I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Dirty Finger Nails

I'm not the tidiest of people at the best of times and the same goes for most things I tackle.

I'd like to be. But my life is just not designed in that way.

Would I want a designer life? Probably not.

Cooking and baking - I use all the pots and pans. Washing and ironing - you will always find a pile.

Even when I try and have a tidy up you can guarantee things become strewn.

Like the stairs and it's ever growing mound of stuff that reaches up to at least four steps high....possibly five.

Why is it only me that takes an armful up when ever I head in that direction?

Nine times out of ten it's not even 'my' stuff anyway and why does it always end up downstairs - up downstairs, does that sound right? - in the first place when we all have our own rooms for all of our own stuff?

Hmmmmmm - one of life's little mysteries I'm guessing.

Anyhow - how did I begin on this topic and where will it end? And that's just me asking!

I started out with dirty finger nails and kind of got off track - again. Sorry.

Why do I always do that? Get off track and then apologies? Why do I feel I need to apologies all the time?

There is a lot of wondering going on around here today - I wonder why!!! Sorry, now that was deliberate. I best stop all this thinking before my brain starts to hurt - even more so then it does right now!

Anyhow, as I was saying.......

What a joy it was to sink my fingers into warm soft soil (sorry Jenny) at the weekend.

The only time I have no guilt issues - at all - I can be as messy as 'I' like.

I do still have to tidy up though!


Have a beautiful week and welcome (officially) to Spring.

Now this is how I had hoped and wished the beginning of March had started - my official start of Spring....tut, tut.
