The grandchildren have had a busy couple of weeks, I love to hear about what they are doing. Jade celebrated her 15th birthday with one of her presents being another trip to London to see her favourite singer Ollie Murrs with her Mum.
She also spent a day with her pony riding along the beach and a family meal in the local pub which I did manage to go to.
One of my friends Carol spent a month in Australia visiting her daughter and husband who live on 10 acres of grape vines. I asked her before she went if she could get me a fridge magnet as I collect them from places I go and bless her she remembered and got me a pink one, I was so pleased with it as forgot when I lived there.
My eldest daughter got her new hot tub up and running not being able to wait for husband Darren to build pagola so up went the gazebo and it did the job and looked excellent.
Children had far too many eggs but enjoyed the hunts and eating of them. All back to school tomorrow and that’s another holiday over, next one is the end of May.
I was so pleased to find these in The Works a couple of days ago as not only did I have points that added up to £3.60 I then found my favourite authors books at 3 for £5 most definitely a great bargain!
I have all of the series now so looking forward to reading them all and then I will have to wait for the TV series of them which I think will be great.
This author keeps you guessing until the end in all her books and I like that. I also find it wonderful to read about places I know and love.
Every chapter appears to be about someone different so I am struggling to remember everything, I know this is me so not in any way blaming the author. I am persevering though as the reviews are all so good and I also have the next one to read already, maybe it will all fall into place by then.
It is that time of the month again and I must say I thought it was one of our best lunches, boy did we laugh. We celebrated Corinne’s birthday, she received some lovely presents and stayed at mine so she could have some wine, then in the evening we went onto cocktails. Sorry to say that there are no pictures as all the chatting and laughing distracted me, lol. The Hungry Horse is our favourite place, food is good, wine is cheap and the staff are so lovely.
Going down to Rocksalt in the harbour where we both love to sit looking out over the sea with the 2for1 delicious cocktails between 5 and 7 in the evening, we were really disappointed as after waiting twenty minutes for a drink they then told us they were shutting in 7 minutes as they were having a comedy night. The bar girl made us one drink and I have to say she did it very quickly and not the same as the cocktail man so we were very disappointed and it has really put us off going there again.
Love the many faces of Lynda! Roll on May, I have the best friends ever and love them all so much.
I really love pansy’s and the mixture of colours you can get them in, the slugs like them to but since I have had the little pond I don’t see very many and that is why my baby frogs are so fat!
I have moved things about in the garden, with a lot of help from my friend Sylvie so I am very happy with it now, I just want all the bulbs and flowers to grow so I have lots of colour and hopefully be able to pick some flowers for indoors. There is only one job left to do and that is digging over the rose bed so I am looking for a strong person to lend a hand. Loving the new wicker chair which is so comfortable and a bargain for £20 also the pink plastic coated shelf, so it will not rust for £8, I do like my bargains. I need to make the cushion covers for all the chairs so they are all matching. Herbs are growing very well this year as are the strawberries so should get a bumper crop. I have a pretty white rose for growing all over the pink ladder and I want to get some nice standard roses for the rose bed but all shades of pink.
The olive tree has grown loads in the year I have had it and it likes the full sun most of the day. I made a little drinking pot for the bumble bees and butterflies with coloured stones.
I get very impatient waiting for things to grow especially my table and chairs outside the front as the ivy and climbers should be all over them and then they will look nice hopefully. I will look out for a very fast growing climber I think.
