Happy post

I had a nice lay in this morning after a rotten day yesterday (hayfever overload) finally after three antihistamine tablets around 10pm I felt better! I didn't have a glass of wine just in case I fell into a coma , I've never taken 3 tablets so close together and was a bit worried. It was foggy all day yesterday but being near so much rape seed it must have been trapped in the air all day. I left for work with make up on and washed blow dried hair but by mid morning I looked puffy and had a nice red shiny nose, not a good look I can tell you.

Happy post
So onto this mornings post. I was sitting with my granny blanket having some quiet hooky time in front of the TV watching James Martin when the post popped onto the mat. The latest Simply Crochet magazine (issue eighteen) and my BBC Countryfile packet of wild flower seeds, yeah. Makes a welcome change from bills and junk mail. I'm going to scatter the seeds next to my veg patch tomorrow for some colour and to attract the bees later in the summer.
I told you I received my Chelsea Flower Show ticket (not bragging honestly) well I've also got free tickets for the Kent Garden Show at Detling on May 24th (its about a five minute drive from my house). I'm helping out a friend to man (woman!) her table for the scarecrow competition. I did it in 2012 when it was a wash out after days of heavy rain but it was such good fun talking to people and we did get some bargains. I'm taking my sister Danielle again so we can find some more plant bargains and have a picnic lunch. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Amanda x

I am so jealous you are going to the flower show! I'm sure you will have an amazing time!

Good to hear that you have had a better day, hayfever is horrid.

I do feel for you with that horrid hayfever. I suffered terribly as a child, even being admitted to hospital on two occasions for desensitisation treatment (which didn't work). It hasn't been anywhere near as bad for a number of years, but I've noticed over the last one or two years that I'm starting to get a bit worse again. I do hope it doesn't come back as bad as it was. Lucky you with the show tickets, you'll have a fab time and I can't wait to hear all about them.
