Taking Time To Dream....

I'm going to be quiet for a little while...
~ May be just a week or two..

I have a calender just now that is bursting at all seams..
But all is well.
Busy Bee days...

Miss Olivia is viewing her choice in universities, you see..
And it seems my days off will be taken for a little while.
~ It only seems yesterday we viewed these with Dean.
Ooh my time flies ever so quickly...
I want to shout out some times..
"Slow down please...I just can't keep up"!

But I'll be back before you know it...
I'm just taking time out to dream a little...

Please keep well till I return....
Because you  really are the nicest of peeps!

Thank you for kindest comments on my last post, too!
They meant an awful lot...

Toddle ~ pip
just for now...
I'm missing you already!
Love and hugs


  1. Exciting times ahead Maria! Tell young Miss Olivia to trust her gut feeling - it rarely fails. Enjoy the adventure x Jane

  2. Happy dreams to you, lovely Maria!

    We have something in common. Héloïse from our corner of France seems to have her heart set on studying in England. Durham is calling her heart I think.

    Happy days to you and your daughter.


  3. Goodness! Oh! My! Oh! Dear! My World has become a void!
    HeHe! Your calender is bursting at the seams.....Hope it's just
    your calender....! :). I know the feeling,....

    A stitch in time....Saves a 'button' falling off......
    AND....Maria....Your comment on Miss Daisy's post, made
    me chuckle.....To think l used to charge for all that....! Now!
    It's ALL free......
    Have fun.....Keep well...And, busy.....!
    "It's nice to be important....But it's important to be nice".
    Ciao....Ciao.....! ~(^.^)~

    1. Ooh i soo agree Willie...I love that quote above...Being the kindest you can be is by far the most important thing to be...x

  4. ~ We are at the interview stage, Jane...and the port folio for London Central St Martins is being put together as we speak! Fingers and toes crossed X

  5. I wish Olivia the best of luck choosing her university.
    Hopefully it won't be too far away from home.
    It's good to take time for yourself and loved ones from time to time.
    Don't stay away too log though will you?
    I'll miss visiting your cosy little corner of the blogisphere xx

    Thinking of you and you little family

  8. Dearest Maria, I will miss you. I understand about taking these rests and I am about ready for one myself. I have almost felt as if Blogland has changed in ways that make me feel as if we all need a break. But when you come back, I'll be here. Have a successful break! LOVE TO YOU, Anita

  9. {{Maria}} and congratulations on 2 years of blogging. Good luck with the uni viewing - time does fly doesn't! Best wishes, Pj x

  13. Hello sweet Maria, it sounds like you have some exciting times ahead there. Yes doesn't the time just fly with kids and you know like you I just want it to slow down a little, life has become so very busy that we forget the essence of it some days. I hope the next few weeks are kind to you all. Sending much love xoxo
