Luna ready for summer

Luna is starting to sort her summer wardrobe and modelled her new sunnies for us today.
Then the sun disappeared. BOO HOO.
Sooooo she went upstairs to make sure Tom was ok after he came in at 3 this morning...he was thrilled. Kate x

Auroras progress

Well I am good at DESTRUCTION. let's hope the CONSTRUCTION goes as well. Having put off tackling this myself for a year I am really enjoying the challenge. As they say necessity is the mother of invention and I may have to open a coachworks.
I had to include this picture of Flash our cockerel watching his 'life partner' Floss dusting herself in a plant pot!

Aurora the Caravan

Such a lovely week decided to start the most difficult part of the caravan restoration for me as a novice. Today bought hardwood, battening and metal snips to tackle this mess. Wish me luck! Kate

Why I am a gadfly

I am hopeless at sticking to one task which frustrates me and others.
I love The Comforts of Home which tells me why this is bad and gives me a label for my problem. It is a beautiful, inspiring book.
Yesterday I
1 Started painting caravan exterior
2 Recovered some of the interior furnishing for caravan
3 Potted up plants
And all this between 5 lifts for children but it is not impressive as I did not finish any of them! Now I have an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings maybe I can use it to 'get stuff finished'. (Fat chance). Kate

May in the sink!!

May must have been jealous of my post of Fred in the bathroom sink, she is doing a rerun in the garden today.
I have found out today I am a gadfly! Which is a relief as O just says I cannot finish anything I start. I will explain in my next post WHY I AM A GADFLY. Back out to the garden with my sewing machine-I love the sunshine.

My O and boys are great but it took my lovely girl to find these in Tesco. They all know I love pale pink roses but these are beauts! Kate x

Happy Mothers Day

This is my little collection for today. I treated myself to the candle holder at Homesense. The lovely rose is from a bouquet of long stemmed baby pink roses (my favs) from the children, and Tilly made me the lovely hot choccy which we are drinking in the sunny garden. Hope you all have a wonderful day. Simple things make today special.

Spring has sprung...?

3 glorious days and another promised today and it was flippin' chilly so instead of being outside again I got out a tapestry I want to finish from the lovely Stitch by Cath Kidston.
