Welcoming May


Blooming flowers + pretty balloons + homemade doughnuts + more balloons and other decorations paired with some wintery fairy lights (oops) + world's best snooker + angry balloons + umpteenth round of Adrian Mole Diaries (honoring late Sue Townsend with gratitude and laughter with some tears) = Welcome wonderful May!

Wishing you a fantastic first of May!

Yours,
Mia

Happy May days, and oh: sunny weekend soon too!

Hello Anne,

Happy May 2nd from sunny yet freezing cold Finland! I am supposed to be starting to work again *ahem* but somehow it still seems to be a bit Vappu here :)

Sue is one of my all time favorite authors and she is much missed. Luckily I have most of her books in my shelf!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend!

Yours,
Mia

Mia,
Oh I have the exact same blue plants in my yard too. Well, mine was in bloom a little earlier, but I love them. So pretty.
I love donuts. I may have to go get some - I saw them in your picture and suddenly want to eat them so badly.
Happy May! I have more flowers in bloom now. Isn't it wonderful to see flowers!?

Hello Helen,

I've scribbled to my first Adrian-book "July 1986" :) and I have been a fan since!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, it's sunny and beautiful here, hope it shines at yours too!

Yours,
Mia

Mia said...

Hello dear Megumi,

Makes me smile to think that we have the same flowers in our gardens! Those blue ones were the first ones to arrive, I wish the others will follow soon!

We're making the second batch of doughnuts as I type, they are just so delicious when warm&sugary... Make some&enjoy!

Have a wonderful first weekend of May!

Yours,
Mia

Megumi said...

Mia, It's Saturday here and I went grocery shopping, and usually pass the donuts section with a strong will but I couldn't today. I bought one for myself and inhaled as soon as I got home. It was yummy.

Just a little confession. Megumi

Mia said...

Dear Megumi,

LOVED your confession :) We made a bog batch yesterday and well...not too many left here :) either.

Have a wonderful Sunday, dear friend!

Yours,
Mia
