New House, New Baby and Sadness

April 2nd would have been Mam and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary,
 it was also  the day we moved house,

 from No 1 at the seaside to No3 in the country.

A new build overlooking the village green at the front and a dean at the back, its lovely for walking the dogs and riding our bikes but we're also close to shops so best of both worlds.

Earlier in the year I had an operation on my knee so while I'm on sick leave I've made the most of the nice weather potting up plants and designing the back garden, just waiting for the gardener to come and do some digging and planting.

The wildlife here in the country is amazing, there's red kites, owls, bats, deer in the field at the back and in the garden we have Jays, woodpeckers, blue tits, robins,

and these little fellas keep us amused with their antics!

 We have a large kitchen/ family room to fill so first stop was to visit Kathryn at My Vintage World
 for a cupboard to display my jelly moulds, and this was just what I was looking for.

Right shape, right colour and right size for the space, and it was soon filled with my jelly moulds  along with a few tins and packets.

Mr Postie delivered these lovely EB mugs,

just right for a brew and a slice of home made banana loaf, 
I could get used to this
 "being a lady of leisure" malarky, ha,

We have a gorgeous new grandbaby born to our son and his girlfriend or should that be" girlfriend and son" lol, absolutely beautiful and we're totally smitten, awwww.
(sorry no pics allowed on here)

Sadly, my very good friend died suddenly so we're off up to Northumberland to scatter her ashes at the place she loved most, RIP x

Hi again Jan your new garden looks lovely and loving the pictures on Instagram. I am guessing that you wont go on your blog any more now. The blogs days were good and I still prefer them to FB!!
