I thought it was about time I introduced myself properly after all I have whiled away many hours peering into others lives. I would like to thank Hensteethart for being my inspiration, a little beacon of light actually since I met her at Flair Fair back in June. I have followed her blog over the last few months and so here it is now I dip my own tootsies into the pool of inspiration!! Hurrrah.
So WHY have I not been manically blogging since my last post.... I will fill you in however you may require liquid refreshment as you may be here a little while.
Carboot sales, one mans junk is anothers treasure, well at least I hope that someone will want to find some treasure in my little pile of goodies. As pictured here. I have had big sort out this summer whilst being away from school and I thought that here is no better way of acquiring a few funds than a carboot sale. Heres the conundrum.......the weather. I do love Britain but the weather is another thing entirely and so I wait with baited breath for the chance to sell my goodies. According to the good old BBC weather I may be in with chance tommorrow.
Which brings me nicely to today. I was so pleased to see that the sun was out today that I decided it was only right to record the momentous ocassion. So here are a few shots from my garden.
Sean loves sunflowers. So we have a number of them round the garden. Anyway on a trip round to the compost bin one of the days something caught my eye, lo and behold four little apples sat nestled in the tree above. I didn't even realise that it was a fruit tree but hey presto. I feel very proud of our four fruits! Not sure exactly what variety they are but I think they are edible.
After watching Jimmy Doherty this week on 'Jimmy and the wild honey hunters' BBC. I found out that the humble bumble bee is dying out and without these little fellas our beautiful flowers will not be pollinated. Its very sad so I was very excited to see this humble bumble hard at work today.
Finally .... Welsh dresser Wednesday. I spent the day Wednesday stripping varnish and sanding, then fixing a little Welsh dresser which now sits proudly in the kitchen. I was so excited to find my grandad had this in his garage gathering dust. It was rescued by myself and the mother and I gave it bit of TLC this week. Mum was a bit teary eyed when I showed her as it had been her moms when she was still with us.
