Sunny day


Today has been gorgeous here in sunny Derbyshire


I have got lots done ... yes i was up at 6.54 this morning
by 7.15 i was making flapjack and then tuna pasta for the kidlets lunch
with everyone off to school / climbing i headed off to do some sewing ,
i haven't had chance to take photo's of what i did sew but this drawstring bag is from Mondays sewing . It came out so nicely that i just had to show you !!



By 10am i decided to take a break from the machine and go outside
for a minute , this turned into a good hours worth of digging and clearing
and planting out the last few pansies left over from filling the window box




See here i cleared all this myself and it is going to be covered in slate chips so i have a nice dry area to put my tomato gro bags on
just behind the blue tub is my salad bed
already dug and waiting lettuce and spring onions
to see us through the summer and funnily enough these are the only times my boys eat salad
when it is fresh from the garden



here is some of my fave plants starting to emerge
its a brilliant blue Delphinium and behind is lemon balm !!


now don't get me wrong it hasn't all be so calm and nice
i have had to rush around as well with meetings and plays at school
plus DD's sport and himself wondering in all climbed out 15mins before we were due to go out
but that's what life is like here ..... hectic !!

Hope everyone had a good day

i am just about to wonder off again to get a bit more sewing done now the little peeps are in bed
hopefully i will get chance to catch up again tomorrow x x

Ooooh don't forget to have a peek at my things on ebay

You are far too organised and efficient! And to think you manage all this with children as well. You put me to shame!
