Summer Holidays

Well what a busy few weeks I have had its the Summer Holidays here in Devon and the weather has not been too bad! Jake and I have been spending alot of time together.

We are both off to The South of France on Saturday as my parents live there Jake goes there on his holidays every  Summer but I have decided to stay for 10 Days which will be nice and relaxing.

So expect some pictures of France very soon.

I went out in my garden this week and gave it a bit of a tidy up and I discovered my first Chilli growing was so excited.
Also I have been Cross Stitching my Cousin and his partner had a baby Boy a couple weeks ago so decided to cross stitch a present for him here it is I am going to put it in a frame for him so they can keep it in his Nursery!

Jakes Sunflower Results

Hi there everybody, unfortunately Jake did not win his Sunflower Competition he came 5th which was really good, but the Competition was a little unfair as not every child bought there Sunflowers in to be judged just there table! But not to worry my little man was given a little pressie from me.

I have not been in the garden much this weekend but did go out and have a look to see how things are growing as the weather has not been brilliant. But now the kids are on Summer Holidays hopefully be able to get out there but  here are some snaps from the garden and some of Mitsey playing with the bugs lol!

The first one is a Palm tree I rescued from a plant shop which cost me £1 it was pretty much dead until I gave it alot of attention and love

Right well hope you enjoyed the pictures I am off now to do some more cross stitching!!!!
