Today in the UK it is a Monday Bank Holiday . Yesterday was a hot lovely day and upon rising this morning it looks like today too is looking that way. Me and my girl are out later this morning there is a garden fair in Aberaeron and I so need some plants! I feel very excitied. Chris has begun digging out a new border and I have been planting a kitchen garden . We have a small patio/courtyard outside the kitchen and dining room and it there I have decided to plant my veg etc. In just a week it is well, taking shape. I have purchased a few more 70 litre tubs and am now in the process of planting out. More of that for next time.
In the meantime I have been it seems forever been on the computer , doing loads of paper work and attending appointments and meetings. All boring stuff to do with school, hospital and dentists and also sorting out job descriptions and contracts for our girls who do respite for the children. So it is important stuff and more importantly it all have to be accurate and legal! The gardening has been a escape and a chance in between everything else , a chance to just loose myself . DH even seems a little impressed. He even likes the extending flower bed and gardening does not impress him at all! He does however adore roses ..... And I might see if a few can "appear" in time for Father's Day later in the month.
I have decluttered the dining room and sewing stuff has been put back into the annex. I have though spent time sewing too and a few goodies too have been purchased....
