The Sun is Back

After days of rain it has been beautiful and sunny here today so I got a chance to wander around the garden after work.  Although I was glad of the rain because my veggies really needed it.  The grass that has gone from brown and dying, which I was sad about, to lush and green, which makes me very happy.  The fact that it's now over a foot high is not that great, I don't know how I'll get the mower through it.......maybe I should hire some sheep!  Which, incidentally, is what the vicar did at the local parish church when funds wouldn't run to a gardener!

I had a lovely, lazy day on Sunday (after I'd done all of the housework and ironing) and I managed to do a layout based on last week's Shimelle's sketch:
 Maddie's first school picture when she joined nursery.  I loved the jumper she was wearing, in fact I loved it so much that I used to force it over her head, with much protesting from her, because it looked snug and cosy and it was a great colour.......the things us mums do!
I managed to use lots of scraps and bits and pieces that I'd had lying around for ages.

This week is turning into a busy one for me, a crop on Thursday and down to see Paul at the weekend, can't wait.

I hope your week is going well
