Looking back...

I was having a little peek through all my old photos today and came across
the file that holds all the pic's of my old house...
Its funny how looking back at old photos can trigger certain emotions,
and I felt quite sad thinking of how happy we were in the old cottage.
Of course I am so pleased to finally be on the property ladder,
but while our new house is in such a mess
(holes still in ceilings, walls missing etc)
and it doesn't seem to be getting any better in a hurry,
it is very difficult to imagine it ever actually being a real 'home'.

Anyway enough of that sillyness!
The central heating is being started this weekend
(fingers & toes crossed!)
and then Clive can start putting our little home back together...
And before long I can start choosing paint colours and wallpaper,
I cant wait for that bit!!!

I thought you might like a little reminder of my old house so
I'll share a few pictures with you...
...of course it was always this tidy and organized!lol!

I hope your having a good week so far, isn't this weather we've been having just lovely,
it wont be long and the sunny evenings will be here...Yippee!!!

Love Jennifer x

Spring in my step...

A couple of weeks ago Clive and I went to a local flea market,
whilst driving through the stalls to park the van,
something caught my eye...
It was the most beautiful vintage french wire work plant stand.
Of course I assumed it was going to be incredibly expensive,
but wanting to put my mind at rest I sent
Clive over to ask the price,
I was more than surprised when Clive informed
me of the very fair asking price...
So, with the last of my birthday money clutched tight in my hand,
I dashed across the field to buy it
before someone else got there first,
(I must add, that 'dashing' is not an easy task whilst
wearing my 'designer' wellies!)...
luckily I got there in time and I eagerly
passed the money over to
the stall holder whilst squealing with delight, It was mine!...
This Sunday turned out to be the most beautiful day,
so I set up the potting table in my new garden
(well more of a jungle at the moment!)
and got to work potting up some primroses and
daffodils into the Victorian terracotta pots
I have 'borrowed' from my grandma's garden.

I'm very pleased with the end result, the spring flowers look so pretty, I cant wait to add to it over the next few weeks...

I hope your all having a good week so far...
