reasons to love blogging

reasons to love blogging no. 1
half way through cooking dinner whilst chaos abounds in the kitchen with children doing homework, and pleading starvation, it is perfectly normal to have to stop everything, go and find the camera and take a photograph.



why?
because the oh so green beans on the pink chopping board made me smile admidst the madness, and I thought they might make you smile too.

tell me some more reasons to love blogging, and have a lovely weekend x

  1. Hulloo. I am so glad you love blogging. I am having a bit of a bah humbug affair with it all at the moment.
    My reason to love it though, is because of the friends I've made and who still email me even though they know I am bonkers... Happy Weekend Missus, Ax

    Your runners look beautiful.

  4. It did make me smile.

    I like the way it makes me take more notice of these small but often lovely things. And enables me to meet other people who can see the lovely in chopped beans on a pink board - yeah!! :)

  7. Just think of blogging as collating social history for the future historians - hence the need for photos of green beans and scrummy meals.

    I love blogging - I love the fact that people even read my ramblings even more :)

    Have a good weekend :)

  9. Hello:
    The green beans on the Barbie pink chopping board do look pretty. Indeed, we wish we could draw up chairs at the dining table since runner beans are never to be found in Hungary and we miss them greatly.

    Reasons to love blogging....well, you might never know of the National Hungarian shortages if we were not in touch via the Blogosphere!!!

  10. I love your photo!! Blogging makes you look at every little thing differently, is this a potential blog photo. :)
    Best thing about blogging for me is the friends I've made and I love seeing what other people have been doing.
    Have a great weekend,
    Anne xx

  12. You see, that is just a colour combo that works every time - pink and green. Almost any pink and any green. Love blogging cos people like you make me people like me feel they're not quite as bonkers as they sometimes think they may be? Lol!

  13. And then there's the new people we bump into! I love it when I am taking photos of food - hubby is so patient - then he says "Can I eat it now?" lol! Nice to meet you.

  21. :-) At the moment I love reading blogs, because they remind me that one day soon I'll have time to do things other than looking after two children and managing to get basic household tasks done.

  24. Yup, blogging makes life's little joys worth stopping for. I quite agree!

  25. Love that you stopped to take that picture, Tess!

    Meeting people from all over is one of the best things. Blogging also makes me more aware of life's happy details, and more appreciative. Reading about other people's perspectives, interests, crafts, food - it's all good!
