Afternoonzies all,

Hair suitably quaffed, I got back to squeeze in a wee bit of gardening until rain stopped play. Still, important jobs done like cannas up, (by eck those fellas have grown since I bought them! They iz mazzoovive 

Also dug my nana up and dumped the stump in the bin, my old bin from the kitchen that is, new one now installed and looking all shiny 

Rain has not stopped as I hoped, so no bulbs planted, and drying off indoors with seafood paella for dinner

Gorgeous attention to detail in your advent calendar Pat! 

Morning all, one step forward two steps back for me this week's decorating. Artexed and painted bottom part of kitchen walls to match top except there was a colour difference no matter cleaning and repainting the top. Brilliant White still looks cream on old walls so I re-artexed top walls as well and today they get another lick of paint 

No floor or wall tiling done yet and got a busy week too. Puppy sitting yesterday afternoon, hair appointment today and Vet jabs for Flynn on Wednesday, and I still need to put my cannas and banana to bed sometime today  no bulbs planted yet either 

Really need a gardening day off 

Take care everyone

Morning all, 

Working weekend finished although got up with fluffy bear this morning to give OH a lie in. He's desperately tired from the astonishing amount of work he squeezes into the average week  do you think he deserves one of those new TVs for Christmas?  Gonna have to enlist the help of his brother to buy it since *new* is about the extent of my technical knowledge 

Hope poorly peeps are on the mend, and the world can learn to see the beauty in different, not the hate  Jeeeez, I sometimes regret bringing children into this world to face a future with so many problems 

Gym at the reasonable hour,  no shopping but plenty more diy to be getting on with 

It's my birthday
