Through the keyhole

Posted: 03/10/2017 at 07:02

I used to have neatly stacked pots in the greenhouse. Then a hedgehog spent the evening causing chaos and I've never really tidied up since. The greenhouse is... a mess I really need to sort out now the tomatoes are nearly over. The shed however: everything has it's place although it's place is tightly packed.

Oh Joyce two weeks?? She must be so glad to be home. I hope she's comfortable and recovers well.

Chicky; hope your dad has plenty of good progress for you to see.

Big hugs to everyone else struggling today. We didn't get the best of nights sleep although at least we didn't need 03:00 trips around the garden. Fortunately the fabulous new office is situated in a Church which has a coffee shop and most enjoyable hot chocolate available (I can't stand coffee and sometimes tea just isn't enough).

I've had to get my summer dresses back out as the office is so warm, I'm talking proper toasty hot warm. But now I need to find a thick long coat for the bit between car and office.

I have made it until 21:25. But the hound has been pestering me since 20:00 because he thought it was bed time! I can't believe (well yes actually I can) I've brought my dog-son up to be such a complete woofter he won't just go to sleep on his own.

The darkening nights are confusing him; I really ought have worked harder on teaching him how to tell the time.

A few more leafs have been stitched for my decorations so I will certainly have colour even if I have no plants in this room.

That's the start of my autumn decorations. For some reason I can't picture and text!

Certainly a strike against the blue wall. I just need to work out how to make some felt conkers and maybe a harvest mouse.

Sweet dreams Pat!

I'm trying to avoid the temptation of an afternoon nap.

Afternoon all. 

Well it's taken 5 removal company people and two huge vans to move the heavy equipment from the office to our new place. Tomorrow we'll be tidying up and sorting ready for the team to start work in their new clean safe office on Wednesday.

No point trying to kill myself to get everything sorted because you can bet no one will thank me! 

The new office is HOT! As in I think they have a poor old dear on warfarin in charge of the thermostat.

Now to enjoy the rest of my afternoon : it's looking very windy here.

Not allowed?  Good reason?

 OH is very protective of the new blinds and windowsill. He thinks I'll spill water or leave marks on them if I put anything down.

He's probably right!

Clari, are you going to attach the leaves to small branches/twigs?

See original post

 ooh I like that idea.

My leafs are bring used as templates to make felt ones to fill a plant pot in the lounge. Something dog safe but adds a bit of seasonal colour.

Unfortunately I'm not allowed plants on the windowsill in this room so a bit of creative efforts are needed.
