Things I love about being home
My pile of books by the bedside - have added a few new titles picked up on holiday
Homemade vegetable soup - who has time for soup making on holiday?
Washing the new "old" fabrics that arrived before we went away - more fun than the holiday washing
Picking the first runner beans I've grown in over 20 years, and harvesting loads of french beans
seeing some colour in the garden
finding a second flush of flowers out on this lovely white scented rose
Discovering that Logan is getting very possessive over "his" chair in the kitchen - he whines and tries to push you off with his paws - we can't have that now!
Displaying the three little vintage pyrex bowls I picked up in a Pembroke CS for £1.75
It's mine, all mine!
sweet peas from the garden
Finding the only hanging basket I got around to planting up this year still thriving - and I had such plans for loads this year!
seeing the ripening grapes
finding the third batch of coriander and basil I sowed this year still alive
admiring the scarlet geraniums that never got planted in the basket they're sitting on - but there's still time....
Oh, and joy of joys, yesterday finally getting a dresser for the kitchen off eBay for a reasonable price - yay!!!!
Is solid oak, probably from the 1980s judging by the style, but by the time its painted.....
It was a "Buy it Now" , and as I was umming and ahhing over it somebody put in a Best Offer so that pushed me - I just went for it.........and two hours later it was in our kitchen - brilliant!
I should add here that I have been looking on and off, and unsuccessfully bidding, for about a year now!
They usually end up going way over my budget - this was reasonably priced I think at £75 and is solid and in very good condition - and I'm so happy about it!
more courgettes and cucumbers
being reminded that I have other projects to finish before starting painting the dresser......
sitting in my favourite reading spot with a new book and a cup of coffee in my new mug
