It's Mums birthday tomorrow so I went into Middleton today on the hunt for a present. She can be a difficult customer to buy for but I found something eventually.
I also spotted this handbag while I was sat having a brew with Mark and Tom. It was staring at me from the shop window opposite the cafe. I spent the whole 'coffee break' deciding whether to buy it or not with my birthday money. I think it's a bit of a love it or hate it accessory. As you can see I decided to love it. It's a little bit lighter in real life. I do love lemon, it's my favourite colour.
The final job in the garden was completed today. I planted up 3 hanging baskets with impatiens. Now it's time to just sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour.
We went to see Joan tonight. She's in fine fettle and never happier than when we are feeding her her beloved chocolate eclairs.
Thomas gets a bit fidgety after 10 minutes of visiting so me and him nipped across the road and went on an elderflower hunt down the lane opposite the home. We came back empty handed. Heaton Park is off the agenda this weekend as well as it's the Parklife Festival. I might just have to admit defeat.
Only a little bit of jigsaw done today. I've started on the lady pushing a bike but I'm having trouble with these faces as I can't find hers either.
Maybe things will look clearer after a glass or two of this.
