A lot more gardening that's for sure. Now that the sun has decided to show itself it has made a huge difference to my garden! Mind you we have had some rain this week. By day I potter in the garden (weekends and evenings) and by night I crochet in front of the TV! I'm now working on a granny stripe blanket as shown on Attic 24. I just couldn't resist anymore and I had to crochet one for myself. I've almost given up on blanket no.1 and I'm now thinking about unpicking it and starting again. Maybe but not decided yet as its a lot of work to start it all over again!
The new veg patch is in - yeah! My hubby (Ian) and son (Jack) started it on Sunday with my help although I did cut my finger on a nail when they told me specifically not to attempt to remove the old raised beds whilst they went out to collect the screws from Wickes. Like any woman I ignored them and promptly made a lovely neat split in my thumb, ouch! I then spent half hour nursing my cut with various sizes of plasters, cup of tea and chocolate biscuits. Lesson no.1 listen to instructions and you won't get injured!
Who said a garden is never finished... Alan Titchmarsh I think!
And here is my lovely birthday cake that Jack had made for me on the 25 May .....

I'll post some more photos of the new veg patch at the weekend. Two new raised beds 9 x 3 each!
