Decorations down - back to normal (ish)

Hello everyone, yes the decorations have been taken down and put in their respective boxes.  I had to buy a new box this year just for the decorations that I've made and the table linen, so who is an organised girl, just so long as I don't forget where I have put them!

My computer seems to playing silly devils with me today, I can't put any photos on my blog, I will have to check with my DS.  It will be just words today.

This morning whilst lying in bed realised a luxury, now I am retired, and the weather is lousy I can lie in bed with a delicious cup of tea and listen to the wind howling and the rain pouring down and know I don't have to go out in it.  Lucky lucky me.  Apologies to all you working girls, your turn will come.

I have started sewing with a vengeance again, after the Christmas break.  I was intending to show you photos of what I am up to, next time - hopefully. 

All the bulbs in the garden are poking their heads above the soil, let's hope they don't change their minds and turn around and snuggle back into the soil.  I really want to get out into the garden and prune my roses and generally tidy up, but the ground is absolutely sodden.  I reckon if we get much more rain our island will just float away down the English Channel.  Just been watching about the awful fires in Australia, it must be terrifying for the people, they reckon it's the hottest weather they have had in living memory, and knowing how hot it was around the Med and US last year it makes you wonder about global warming.

Only 16 more days until June and I go off on our expedition to another craft show, I am really looking forward to it.  I will start writing my list of things to look out for.

I hope you like the new header photo, managed to get out in the garden and pick these flowers, there's Winter Flowering Jasmin, Primroses and Winter Sweet now that has quite an insignificant flower but the perfume is delicious, I even found my Honeysuckle in bud.

Bye for now girls, be back with you soon, hopefully with photos.  Take care.


  1. I too had a problem with posting pics Janet when i did my last post, then suddenly it worked again.
    It's so lovely to have some colour in the garden even on the dullest of days, your little posy of garden flowers is lovely. Our bulbs have their noses out of the soil although i cant see a thing today, we've got some real nasty fog.

  2. I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with the photos. Michelle at Michelle's StitchCraft Place had the same problem and said she was given a solution? Maybe you could check with her.
    I do love the flowers! Beautiful.

  3. Your flowers are certainly a bright spot! I am looking forward to hearing about your adventures with June at the craft fair!

  4. Nice flowers. Wish I didn't have to go out in the 'stinky' rain. Have fun with June at the craft show.

  5. Great flowers, looking forward to our show soon. hugs.

  6. Hi there and thank you for visiting my blog! Sorry to hear that you are having problems uploading your photos - fortunately I have not had any problems, but you can check with Michelle over at StitchCraft Place ( - she had some photo problems and managed to sort them out. Hope this helps and that we can see your pics soon :)

  7. It does sound lovely to be retired. :) Seems to be quite a few people having problems posting pictures - maybe it's just a Blogger glitch. Can't wait to hear about your trip to the craft show. :)
