I was so excited to find a parcel on the doormat waiting for me when I got back from the dentist yesterday and quickly tore it open
The elves and the shoemaker was my favourite book when I was a child and I've waited far too long to find a copy in fairly good condition for it's age.
Of course I had to pay a fortune more than the original price of....
I'm looking for a copy of "the party" now to go in my collection, I have quite a few of Rachels books from when she was little and Alexa and I are enjoying reading/looking at them, maybe she'll be a bookworm just like grandma.
At the front of the house there was a small lawn laid by the developers that didn't look anything, so,
we decided to give it a little makeover!
Off we went to B&Q for some lavender plants, a blue cyprus lollipop and 10 bags of blue slate, and while I made a nice "brew" Roger the lodger dug out the grass for me.
We put the lavender down the sides of the path so that when it grows it will smell lovely as you brush past it, mmmmmm.
and we put the "lollipop" in the middle it will look nice at christmas time with twinkling lights twined around it,
I think the garden suits the style of the house much more than the grass do you? Our lovely neighbour next door but one has put us a fence up between the houses as our neighbours move in next week and I'm sure they don't want our doggies in their garden,
as the garden isn't very big I've found a lovely shade of green called williow to stain the fence and then we can start on the decking, look at these two they belong to Andy and they adore our Darcy!!
Having recently moved from No 1 at the seaside to No3 in a lovely little village in the country my main hobby is now gardening! I also love to sew and knit and am a member of the WI and the grandma of 3 little darlings. Thanks for dropping by.
