Hello - welcome to my blog

24th April 2010 - 4.00 pm - Cup of tetley in the garden with some home magazines.

Finally it's warm again, spring did feel as if it had arrived a few weeks ago, but it really was a trick to make us hope that the worst winter we've ever had was over. On Tuesday this week, my husband was taking a group of P5's (9 year olds) on a environmental/geology fieldtrip and of course, it snowed on them! Still everyone came prepared and braved the 2oC to have a great day, complete with spotting adders.

Just come back from a shopping trip with my teen daughter, just us this weekend as the boys (husband, teen son and younger son) are off on a scout camp.

So finally I get to sit out in the garden with my tea. Plans for the garden this year include; putting up our polytunnel - (which arrived in about a million boxes yesterday); transforming the derelict railway goods wagon half way up our field into a summerhouse (would love one like MsMarmitelovers!); and perhaps putting in a pond.

Great dreams, but we'll see how we get on.

Now I'm off outside to muck out our paddocks - one of the major benefits of keeping horses at home is the easy supply of well rotted manure for our garden.


  1. A summerhouse out of an old railway wagon - that sounds absolutely wonderful!! I do hope it becomes a reality for you. I'm loving Alice & Bella :0)

  2. I love this! Keep blogging. I will need it when I go. I will also need to sit in the new summerhouse when i return with a glass of chilled white wine on a beautiful summer eve. :) x
