Morning Pat! Your photos didn't load first time round; I find it fascinating how different your side of the world looks to ours. (Though since Yorkshire is currently washing up water grey anything with colour would look different).


Joyce: fortunately there's nothing too special in there. I do however want to play around with ideas for seasonal cushion covers for the lounge so I won't mind too much about using them for practice pieces if they're a bit scruffy.

Morning all! It's my day off today and I have my list of jobs all lined up. It still looks almost dark outside so I don't think cutting the grass will be happening! I've a new farm shop to investigate and I want to get all of my quilting stuff out the boxes to see what damage the house renovation did to the fabrics (I suspect they weren't as tightly sealed down as I had hoped). 


But first; a mug of tea and walk the hound before his bath time!

Clari, who said HE could retire??????


See original post

 Good point 


So long as he'd not expect a spik and span house, dinner on the table when he got home, everything master of the house style... because gardening takes longer than you think!

Hosta; but if you retired you'd have to spend ALL day with your hubby. Are you ready for that?

No lentils I'm afraid; haven't much of anything until I go shopping tomorrow!

oooooh that sounds delightful Dove. Any scraps going? His lordship is out working on a friends land rover, and judging by the photographic updates, won't be home any time soon.


I've pulled some sausages out of the freezer; too exciting for toad in the hole but ice not decided what to do with them. Something with pasta.

Maybe I'll leave him a post it note telling him how I love him (But that if he leaves a mess in my nice clean kitchen he's taking me out to a posh restaurant tonight... that should scare him).

 Well; it wasn't a posh restaurant but he did get fish and chips which apparently is equal to toast crumbs almost everywhere.

Morning all! 


Well it appears to have rained all night so I dare not think what the field I'm going to be stood in all weekend will be like (information stand for work). Looks like my new boots will be getting *horrors* muddy!


I just hope the rain doesn't put people off visiting the show.


Pat; I will confess in the winter I sit in the greenhouse to get and soak up the sun. It's usually crammed fit for bursting with pots and bits but the way the sun heats your joints; well central heating never does that. I do like the idea of a nice scheduled space; I hope your builder can come up with a solution.


I probably should get up. Efforts to engage in chat with his lordship aren't working as he's having a lay in apparently and can fall asleep quicker than pass wind. Maybe I'll leave him a post it note telling him how I love him (But that if he leaves a mess in my nice clean kitchen he's taking me out to a posh restaurant tonight... that should scare him).
