The Alphabet Photography Project X is for Xanthic

Week 24 of PODcast‘s linky The Alphabet Photography Project and this week we are up to X. Always a joy to reach this letter!  Last year I was a smarty pants and went for  Xenodochium don’t you know. What on earth to pick this year? Well, I obviously resorted to google and my The Alphabet Photography Project X is for Xanthic.

The Alphabet Photography Project X is for Xanthic

The Alphabet Photography Project X is for Xanthic – meaning: yellow or yellowish. As soon as I spotted the word and meaning I knew I could use this photo of one of the beautiful flower arrangements from BritMums Live.  Aren’t these yellow roses just beautiful.

Then almost as soon as I’d uploaded this shot, I thought of these flowers too.

The Alphabet Photography Project X is for Xanthic

Sunflowers will forever remind me and so many others of Elspeth and of my blogging friend Jenny. Jenny was so inspiring at the weekend, she’s had surgery two weeks before, has been through unimaginable pain, grief, and worry but she made it to BritMums.  Not only did she make it, but she stood in front of us all and read her Dear Elspeth post.  She did it without crying, unlike pretty much every other blogger in the room.  When we’d spotted sunflowers in The Hub earlier, it was fate.  They were meant to be on the table when Jenny got back to her seat, so that sorted.  That made her cry, and we’re sorry for that.  Blogging brings us many things, but friendships are the most valuable.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
