Another lovely day here at Number 38. It was even warm enough for me to sit outside for lunch. I was very good and had a huge salad with feta cheese.
I bought a fuchsia bush from Lidl which I've already planted up - I wasn't going to make the same mistake as last week and it went straight into the trolley this time.
We've decided as we're not going abroad this year we'll spend some time and money on the garden.
The first job will be to get the fencing done and we're just waiting on a quote for that.
Then there'll be some tidying up to do, old pots to throw away, patio to clean, shed to paint etc.
I've ordered some outside lights to hang on the shed to give us that 'abroad' feeling when we're sat in the garden drinking our zinfandel on those warm summer nights (she writes dreamily!).
And Mark also likes the idea of having artificial grass laid. I can hear the sharp intakes of breath from all you gardeners out there, but my sister and friend have it and it looks OK. We've had proper grass in the past but we've come to the conclusion over the past few years that although we like a nice garden we're not gardeners and we don't like doing any of the manual work that comes with it, especially mowing the lawn.
All sounds quite simple when it's written down doesn't it. We'll see just how much does get achieved over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, one pictureless post down and four to go before the camera arrives.
