I couldn't really justify buying a set so opted for some bulbs instead. I picked crocus and hyacinth and tomorrow will buy a small bag of compost and plant them up. I bought the bowl over 20 years ago and it's one of those things I won't get rid of because every so often it comes in handy for something or other.
The tickets for the Royal Yacht Britannia arrived in the post today. It's cost us £40 for a family ticket and we could have taken another child for this price. Over the next few weeks I will be instructing the family on how to hold their little pinkies up for when we 'take tea' in the Royal Deck Tea Room.
I've made a start on the birdhouse and am thoroughly enjoying myself. There's something about getting absorbed in a craft project isn't there.
It's a very simple project, the only fiddly bit was cutting out the slots, although if I'd had a craft knife it would have been much easier.
The paper is sticky backed so after cutting out the shapes it was just a case of peeling and sticking.
And then slotting it all together to make the house.
