- The planned trip to the falconry centre etc didn't go as planned as the boy was violently sick on the Bank Holiday Monday, so Mark and Jemma went by themselves leaving me and Tom to have a duvet day...
- The craft room finally has it's green wall, as I painted this week :) Also the Expedit my friend brought me from Glasgow Ikea has finally been put together and looks fab in the craft room :)
- Mark's Aunt and Uncle came to visit from Liverpool. We took them on a tour round the Glenfiddich Distillery, and the Speyside Cooperage, both of which have radically changed since we last did the tour about 15 years ago!
- The vegetable growing is going well, I have lettuce in a trough outside, along with a trough of peas. The strawberry plants I transplanted from another part of the garden are doing well in their new spot - I spied some flowers the other day :) I also found some raspberry plants too, which I moved to a sunnier spot. I also got a rhubarb crown - absolutely love rhubarb - so the "Good Life" experiment is going well :) We planted more seeds with the kids when Mum was up, and the carrots are just coming through, but the beans and courgettes have gone great guns, so will need to plant them out in the next few weeks! This is showing Mark that a raised bed is definitely something that we will need for next year!
I have been crafting as well, making some cards (that I forgot to photograph before I posted them) and also doing this layout for a blog challenge on Sarah's Cards Ltd blog. It was a sketch challenge (how could I resist?) and the sketch was provided by Rachel Ward, one of their design team.
