{In celebration}

Hello there
With the school holidays unpon us I fear that my posts my be even more sporadic than they all ready are!
However less time on the internet does mean jobs actually get done....although i think that may reveal too much about what i'm really like!! We have now finished plastering downstairs in our house so have lovely flat smooth gorgeous walls - YAY!
But best of all we also have a sumptuous plum coloured living room! I'm so excited about it, it looks gorgeous so I think that as we have finished (kind of anyway - just a few more odd bits to do) our first room in the house that i'm going to treat myself to a handblown glass vase or bowl to go in it
I just need to find someone to do it now!

{The Good Life}

This is our first 'proper' summer in the house as we'd only just moved in last year so this summer we planted a few easy things lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cucumber etc to see how it would all grow here....and to my delight it has all come up brilliantly

We have always grown our own, but I still get enjoyment each year when it all comes out. We will move the garden allotment for next year (now that we know it will work) to the back of the garden...away from the footballs....and I think we will also make room to have an orchard there we already have pear and apple trees but it might be nice to have a cherry tree and plum trees too
