Thankfully, it wasn't raining this morning and although it was still damp it meant the new patio doors we'd ordered could be fitted.
I left Mark to deal with this and went into Middleton with Mum. Top of the list of things to buy was glue for Betty's head but the stuff I bought didn't work so I'll have to buy some more. I also bought some new pillows and Amy and Thomas' Easter eggs. Minstrels for Amy and Maltesers for Thomas.
I'm afraid my tulips were beyond rescue and even the iced water Sadie suggested didn't help although if I'd known to try it straight away it might have made a difference. They're definitely a bit of a poor show this week.
And the hyacinths aren't much better. I've no idea whey they're so spindly. I thought there were supposed to be loads of flowers all crammed together.
I've been flicking through the music book which I thought would have some little tunes in for me to play but it's all theory so I'm going to have to buckle down and get to grips with notes and beats etc. I'll definitely need some help from my niece with this side of things.
Thomas has to dress as a Greek next week and take a foam pizza base in for some project or other they're doing. I think World Book Day is looming as well and then there's the Easter Egg competition, so it's a busy few weeks making this and that.
And I've booked our break away in Avebury. We're going on my birthday which falls during spring half term so that will be a nice treat. We're doing our usual Premier Inn routine and will stay in Chippenham for a couple of nights and travel over to Avebury for the day.
I've recorded Vera so I'll be settling down with a brew very soon to watch it. But right now I'm going to have a look at some blogs to see what you've all been up to.
