A little now and then......

I don't do gardening really, and the relaxed look of our suburban lawn and borders can  testify that I do not lie, but a friend with a lovely garden told me to just think of tackling it in bite sized pieces, and to try and do just an hour a day, and accomplish something. So yesterday, assisted by my daughter, who came home for Mothers day (how lucky I am) we did some rather severe cutting back...or giving the plants and bushes a big haircut, as I like to think of it. We are not sure if we have done right or wrong but the one area we tackled looks better, and the branches we left  have two chances...will either flourish or be finished. Time will tell. Then today, as there was a little bit of sun for an hour I then spent time cutting up and bagging all the stuff we cut back yesterday. We do live in a semi mind you and the newly exposed fence right next to the house makes us feel a little overlooked...but who cares, we don't really get up to anything the neighbours would be shocked by!

And of course.....

Much as I would like to treat her to a swanky hotel...we have champagne taste and cider money.

Request.....

I'm thinking of going to Paris with my daughter for a weekend..any tips re accommodation?

Common sense and good will......

It took weeks and weeks and various emails and photographs, but they have cancelled the PCN.....and agreed that as I have the ticket and I  displayed it in good faith, they would cancel this one but maybe wouldn't be so considerate on the next occasion!

Blowing the dust off the blog......

And in other news.......... I have decided to retire at Christmas. This will be a reduction in money coming in but hopefully a better qua...
