Hi guys :)
What a wonderful day i had yesterday!
It was mine and The Bearded Wonders 5th anniversary of being together, through thick and thin.
5 years! The poor git, having to put up with me :P
You think i'm joking? He has put up with my many and varied hobbies, successes and failures, my disappointment when things go wrong, cheering me on when things go right. My many, many hair colours and styles. My spontaneity, of pancakes at midnight, my wild ideas, our long discussions (read- arguments) My ability to sneak things into the shopping trolley when he isn't looking
(oh, he knows about it, he is just lovely enough to buy it anyway, bless him)
All of this and more.
And for which i am eternally grateful. I am grateful for his never ending support, his romantic side (which is better than mine, i am terrible at being romantic) he leaves little notes, writes poems to me, buys a book because he knew i would like it, or a surprise of a DVD in the post, recording a T.V programme because he knew it would interest me.
What a sweetie he is.
Woah... i got rather soppy there didn't i? Quite good for someone who is rubbish at being romantic!
We had a lovely day out in the nearest own, we had coffee and scones at a lovely cafe, where the sweetest old man was sat playing such lovely music on an old keyboard. I think we were the only ones listening.
I came home with a few bargains, a lawn edging roll for £2, which may end up being used for raised beds for the time being, until i can get some wood. They actually had some raised bed sets in B & Q but i wasn't paying £18 for them! (maybe they'll read this and offer some? I live in hope :P )
A Shiny new trowel for £1.50, and some carrot seeds and Thyme for 50p each.
I sowed the carrots in an egg carton, then, when they have sprouted shall be moved to bigger pots and eventually transplanted outside.
My Parsley has finally started to grow! So it has been moved onto the living room window with the Chives and Basil, where it can get the full benefit of the sun . They are all growing nicely :)
I made a sign for the pantry door because...well, why not?
I also found a large tin of strawberries for only 50p! The plan is to drain off the syrup and use them for jam. No where near as nice as fresh strawberries but they shall be good as a backup until i can grow my own.
How has your weekend been so far? What have you been up to?
