Thank you xx

Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post, I am yet to reply to them all & am woefully behind on reading your blogs too. My dad was released from hospital back into his care home on Friday so for now we are back to a bit of normality.

Yesterday was the first time in a while that I felt like going into the garden so a few photographs were taken. Also a quick peek into the greenhouse saw more seedlings popping through so all is good. The weather was glorious yesterday, it was so warm & sunny it was impossible not to feel happy.

I should have weeded yesterday & planted my potatoes in the sunshine but put that off for today as of course yesterday was Mothers day. No nice lunch for me though as the only Sunday Mike works in a year happened to fall on Mothers day. However Harry appeared in my room yesterday morning with some presents including chocolates , nice wool & some rather squashed daffs which he had hidden in his room.


Right I need to shift myself as I need to walk to the bank & pay a cheque in for Mike who I am pretty sure is away for the week & then I have lots of gardening jobs to catch up with.  Once again Thank you xx

Enjoy your day

  12. It's no fun getting calls from the care homes, but I guess the timing couldn't have been better for you to be able to drive to the hospital with your dad. I'm glad he's well enough to return to the home. You sound crazy busy, and I hope things settle down for you. I had to laugh when you said your husband is taking you compost shopping ... isn't that just as good as a Mother's Day outing?! Enjoy your week! Wendy x

  15. Hello Joanne! I'm sorry I've been a bit lax catching up on blogs lately, but glad that your Dad's back from hospital and hopefully things will be looking up from now on. You did very well on Mother's Day, what a lovely lot of presents! The weather is a bit on the sad side today, but hopefully will pick up soon ... thanks for popping over to Thriftwood, you're always welcome, sweetie!

    Love Claire xx

  16. Hello Joanne,

    We were drawn in by the thought of a fellow Gin and Tonic drinker with a penchant for the old and sparkly. That could easily be us, although we do not grow our own food and have given up all hope of being able to knit or sew.

    We are sorry that you have had such a worrying time lately. These things do tend to come along in packages and rather overwhelm one in the process. However, the cheery daffodils surely must have brightened your day and there will be light at the end of the tunnel.

    We are your latest followers!

  18. What wonderful gifts, lucky you. The wool looks fantastic. Lots of gardening jobs to do here as well. All of a sudden it is full steam ahead. Off now to plant out broad beans. So glad your dad is back in his care home and that things are a little more normal for you. Hope you enjoy the rest of the week.
