Hi welcome to my blog, Sunshine, Raindrops and Tea in the garden. My name is Fiona and I live in Surrey in the UK.

I only started my blog in January 2018 so I’m still learning as I go along. I am really enjoying writing – so much more than I expected to – I didn’t enjoy it at school and don’t think I had much imagination. Now I really love having my own little space where I can write down exactly what I want!

I made two resolutions for 2018, one was to stop drinking alcohol and the other was to write a blog.  So far I have achieved both, but the decision was just the start.   These two accomplishments are just part of my journey to make the most out of life.  I am sure I will make mistakes along the way but that’s how we learn and improve isn’t it?  After all, a mistake is just a ‘mis-take’ – an opportunity to give it another go.  If we all started off perfect with no room for improvement the world would be a very dull place. I don’t do dull, I like anything with a bit of sparkle 💖

I can’t spend as much time as I’d like on my blog as I work full time. I also have a dog, a cat and family who need attention, watering and feeding! We moved into our ‘forever home’ about four years ago and I need to also try and find time to make it how we want it. So far the only room we’ve really done is the bathroom and oh – how I love my bathroom 💕. I need so many more hours in each day – I wish there was no need for sleep!

I hope you will enjoy reading what I have written and I hope also that you may be able to relate to the things I talk about. I love to get feedback about what I’ve written so please feel free to comment, also if you have any questions please contact me.

My blog doesn’t follow a particular topic, it’s literally me writing things that I think about and things that I think are good to share, hopefully you will find it easy to follow and be able to relate to the things that I talk about.

I should say that a few photos I use on here are my own but a lot are from of them are from Pixabay – there is a great choice of brilliant photos and there are some places I’m just never going to get to!

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to enjoy a cup of tea…
