About Me

I'm 57 years old, working full time, wife, mother and grand mother, wishing that I wasn't working full time! I love and enjoy our children and grandchildren, our dogs and cat, our garden and allotment. I love crafts - knitting, sewing, crocheting, patchwork and restoring old furniture. I love to go to country auctions and love thinking that I've got my self a bargain!

Evening All............

Evening All,

Sorry I haven't been about for the last few weeks but getting jobs done seems to have taken over. But the garden and house are looking so much better for all the work undertaken. Plus we've had our Grand Daughter's 5th birthday, Easter and a wedding to attend too, so it has been a thoroughly busy time.

The garden is starting to look a little better, the tomato houses are all set up ready for the tomato's and cucumbers to go in, (at the end of May) the garden furniture has had a good dosing of teak oil and I've given the summer house a really good clean today, the nets have been washed and are hanging out drying. All the spiders webs have been removed and the furniture moved about in there (I will take photo's promise.....just didn't have time today!).

At the allotment - lots of onions and garlic are in, so are the broad beans, and potatoes. Runner beans are popping through in the greenhouse as well as all the salad leaves, radishes, rocket and spring onions.

In the house we've changed the bedroom curtains, and the eiderdown, the kitchen curtains have been taken down and washed, windows cleaned and summer curtains put back up, the brasses and silver have been cleaned and are all sparkling away. Plus a  huge pile of ironing has been done and all put away and I've managed to read a book and I'm half way through another one, so even managed some time for myself!

I can go back to work tomorrow and have a good rest!! (Joke!!!)
