I thought I would take the plunge today and see if I could upload pictures to my blog. It’s something I have never done before!
So here are pictures of two plants that we have potted up this week! Exciting stuff! I will add a selection of pictures when the garden has more flowers at the moment this is the only real splash of vivid colour.
It’s not as warm today as there is bit of a sea breeze blowing. This is probably going to be the last day I will be able to sit outside for a while as tomorrow the forecast is for rain and thunder storms! Typical British summer really but then it is only April.
We have been sat in the garden today chatting to the neighbours. P&P chucked some hot cross buns over the fence for us to scoff! That was followed by two fab ice lollies a few hours later! They have been invited to next Fridays BBQ. We have brilliant neighbours, P&P are the people that helped us the day of Jays crash. I know day or night if I need help they would come to my aide. It’s nice knowing that with my family normally over an hour away.
I haven’t eaten an ice lolly in over twenty years as I have a thing about the wooden sticks. I ate the fab lolly out of politeness knowing if I had a taste of the stick I could feign dropping it on the ground and letting the dogs eat it! I actually really enjoyed it and it appears that I have got over my stick thing! I’d like to try a magnum next as I have never had one of those!
Ma and Pa popped in again today. Dad said mum was too tight to buy a cup of tea at Budleigh Beach. I know that isn’t true they just like any excuse to pop in and I love them for it. Is it wrong to say you adore your parents and love their company? I hope not as this is how I feel about mine! Mum has no Internet access at the moment so she wont get to read this for a few days. Then she will get all emotional bless her. I can’t help it if I love my mum and dad! xx
We are hoping its nice next Friday for the Royal Wedding as we are having some people around to watch the wedding and then have a barbecue lunch after. We a going to make our own beef burgers and Thai Chicken burgers. I won’t be partaking in the burger fest as I am vegetarian, well actually I eat fish so not strictly vegetarian. So I am going to make some fish cakes for myself if I am up to it. If not it will be a frozen Mexican bean burger. Hubs is day off before so we can do a lot of the prep together after my Dr’s appointment – the one where I will have to beg to get a private referral!
Pain wise it’s bearable today, TMJ is playing up so its painful for me to open my mouth and speak – some husbands get all the luck. The pain, well some of it is my own fault, I don’t like taking tablets as I actually rattle when I walk, so I try to limit them, plus the more you take the less effective they become. The problem with this is you end up in so much pain that it gets difficult to get on top of it. So its a difficult dilemma.
On a happier note the dogs were bathed today……….. and hubs! Willow was an angel
(her best angel face!)
She had her bath and no complaints! Mollie wasn’t too keen but allowed Hubs to get on with it.
(Mollie is the only dog out of all three who loves to sunbathe!)
Frankie or Frankenstein as he is also known was a little demon and had to be chased around the garden with the hosepipe!
(Frankie with dumbbell and toilet roll tube in his mouth so the girls can’t have them, looking like butter wouldn’t melt!)
