It was a combination of having treated to myself to a few new bits and bobs (including an owl stamp and a swiss dot embossing folder), and needing a couple of cards for different things.
First it was the in-laws wedding anniversary......the stickers look strange colours in the pic!! they liked the card anyway and that's the main thing lol.....
Have I mentioned that we are getting chickens in a few weeks?! C.R.A.Z.Y. Well the coop has been erected and fox-proofed, so now we're working on the rest of the garden. Two sides are protected by brambles, so we thought that would be fine - until Lee watched a fox crawling through them yesterday stalking, and catching, a bird for his dinner! So we need to rethink that one. We see loads of foxes in the field at the side of the house, and I guess we can not completely keep them out, so vigilance is going to be the key me thinks.
We're also having another go at growing our own stuff this year haha! The green house is up, beds have been planted and the south-facing windowsills of the house are crammed with various seedling trays and things sprouting up in 3" pots. Ah the good life!! Sop fingers crossed for good weather. Well actually, I am leaving it to his highness - I'll stick to making the window boxes, patio and hanging baskets look pretty thank you!!!
