I just wanted to pop on and apologise for why I haven't had anything to share for a couple of weeks.
As I mentioned in a previous post I've recently started a new job, after working in retail for so many years I decided it was time for a change and find something with better hours. Working a mix of either 6a-2pm or 1:30pm-9:30pm each week with never more than 1 day off in a row was taking it's toll on myself and my home life. I'm now working as a Receptionist in a Doctor's Surgery and whilst it's a little overwhelming at times with how much you need to know I am thoroughly enjoying it. Plus I get weekends off which is a strange sensation!
Over the last few weekends all my time has been taken up by the garden, some of you may already know I'm an avid gardener! After moving into a New Build last year we've finally been able to get started on the garden and started putting plants into the ground. After renting for almost 10 years the majority of my plants were in pots and it feels so good planting some of those 'babies' I've had for years into a permanent home.
So far we've put some Hawthorn whips in to form a hedge over the coming years infront of the fence, created a little patio area and most recently we dug up some of the turf, worked in some well rotted manure and created a large border. There's a sneaky peek below. It's still a work in progress as I still need to pop in some Foxgloves that I've grown from seed and the spent Spring bulbs that I've had on display. Once the plants have established themselves and spread it should look a lot better!
We're planning on doing something similar on the opposite side as it seems such a waste just leaving all the space to turf! lol
So as you can see I've been a bit limited for time to craft but next week I'm planning on getting something made, so don't worry I'l be back with something soon.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekends!
