I'm a Naughty Blogger

I'm so sorry I haven't blogged for a while, life just takes over and takes hold! I do pop in and visit all my lovely blog friends to see how you are doing as often has I can. My illness holds me back sometimes and I don't really have much to say and you certainly do not want to hear me moan, I'm sure! I've been so tied up with family just recently and the blessed garden has started to grow now that Spring is here, so I really haven't had time for extra stuff. Now that Lonnie's birthday is over and she is coming to the end of her last year at Uni, which is a real blessing, I should have more time for me.

I was tidying up some old files on another computer and came across this lovely movie I made for my sister's 40th birthday.

The music I chose for the video is by Corinne Bailey Rae and is called 'Butterfly'. I just love the words as they say exactly how I felt towards my little sister, who is 10 years younger than me, as we were growing up in our Mother's house.


In my mother's house
There's a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There's a little girl
Wary of the world
She got much to learn
Get her fingers burned
An affinity
Between you and me
Coz we're family
Said that I'd be fine
Give me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you give me life
Like a butterfly

In my mother's house
There was happiness
I wrapped my myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was that you'd say
Make your own mistakes
And when you're grown
Make sure that you remain the same
Now I realise
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Give me life
Like a butterfly
