Yes that’s right, My Peacock Books is officially a year old…Or at least it was a year old on the 8th April but I was so caught up in stuff I didn’t realise!¬† Sorry for being late and for generally being less involved with the blogging community recently but I wanted to celebrate getting my blog to a one year mark ūüėÄ

The photo challenge for this week is the word smile and I can’t help but smile every time I see one of these guys in the town or city.¬† I know plenty of people see pigeons as pests but I’ll never forget the hoard of pigeons that flocked around me when I visited Trafalgar Square in London as a child.¬† Pigeons are banned from there these days but back then there were stalls set up that sold cups of seeds just so you could feed the delightful and often silly birds.

Hello everyone.¬† I hope you are all well and having a great February.¬† I’m sure plenty of you know or if you didn’t might have spotted that I’ve been less active than usual.¬† I’ve reduced my posting schedule to just three a week (going out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday), been slow to reply to comments¬†and I’ve not been around much on everyone else’s blogs.¬† No it hasn’t been a love of the Winter Olympics that’s kept me away, although I will admit that I am a fan of watching both the summer and winter Olympics. ¬†First I’d like to apologise for being away for quite a bit.¬† Things have been a bit uphill in my personal life lately.¬† Apart from planning a move and the stress and complications of that and other things, I’ve had a bit of an accident too which has put me in a bit of a low mood recently.

So the first month of January feels as if it has flown by and I’ve been very busy.¬† Not only have I managed to post a lot of stuff on my blog and get back to pre-scheduling most posts, but I’ve also been busy in the offline world.¬† My time with blogging is going to be hampered a little bit though over the next month as I’ll be away for a bit, but I’ll still keep reading (I just can’t help but love reading!) and do my best to not let it look like I’ve disappeared.¬† To those kind friends who worry, don’t worry, I’m not pushing myself or anything, I have a lot of pre-saved posts all ready to go so you might not even notice I’m gone! lol¬† In the online world I also have some more exciting news to share but I want to save that until a little later when I’m sure everything’s going well.¬† So anyway, on to what’s happened in the last month…Read More »

Today I am bringing you a picture which I think sums up the word silence very well.¬† With what looks like civilisation so far away, there is a great silence near this water.¬† The only thing you hear is a breeze in your ears but it’s a beautiful silence otherwise and the perfect place to take a moment to yourself and breathe¬†ūüôā
