As you guessed I've been super busy still. Although it makes life all the better seeing the sunshine here in the UK, it's like a true summer day today! The windows are all open, there's no breeze, the sun is hot, aaaaah, it won't last though will it ha ha! Actually it is set to last this weekend and I'm very happy about that
So what the heck have I been up to apart from work work and more work.
Well here's a selection of photos.
We unexpectedly did a stall at the Cat's Meow club on Saturday, it was a last minute thing but we had fun, Paul also sold one of his paintings, so a good night was had by all!
Here's a picture of the artist himself, looking particularly cool and artistic like he he!
My stall with people looking, that's what traders like, people looking, well no actually we like people buying but looking is a good step! It looks strange as it was set up on a pool table, ah yes we adapt people!
Apart from working on Notorious Kitsch and Miss L Fire shoes - which is hardly a chore, talking about fabulous shoes!! - I have been doing the garden.
When I say doing the garden I mean, attempting to get the garden in some type of shape to eventually make it into a real garden. We've been here 5 years and in all that time we have done nothing to the garden apart from mow the lawn, no plants, nothing, poor neglected thing eh? Last year we finally got round to painting the fences but that was about it! This year when I looked at it in the first throes of Spring I though oh no this is the year for back breaking work! Half the lawn was covered in moss, weeds and all manner of horrible things that shouldn't have been there, so to prove my back breaking work this week, here's a pic!
It's grim isn't it? Well I have now cleared one bit, dug up the weeds and sown some seed, fingers crossed. I have soooo much more to do, but I can only manage a bit at a time, gardeners must have backs of steel!
However I did manage to get a little area to sit in sorted out, so at least when the garden starts to come together we can enjoy it! Soooo much more to do *sigh*
And I keep meaning to post this picture, some of our best friends live next door and this is the view from my back door into their garden, ah I wish it were mine!
Of course summer means fabulous salads again, this is one of my favourites, very healthy, that's creme fraiche not mayonnaise! And by the way I'm still on WW and doing ok thank you, 9lbs down :o) This salad is sweet potato and quorn sausage YUM oh and that's enough for 4 just in case you think I'm overindulging!
And last but not least, a little teaser of another project I have on the go - yes I know don't I have enough to do already.....
So there you go my last few days, I'm tired just thinking about it!
This weekend I am going to slightly overindulge in wine and gin, and I'm going to sleep and sew and sleep again, can't wait!
