A Good Ol' Catch Up!

Hello there!
Wow! Its been two months since my last post! I just don't know where the time went!

So, what's been happening?

We are now the proud owners of 2 blackcurrant bushes, a tayberry bush and a loganberry bush, i've planted them and so far they seem to be surviving haha, fingers crossed!

We have a "new to us" rug, which covers almost the whole living room, so no more cold floorboards! Woohoo! Thanks to lovely Jayne for helping to cart it back for me :)
Also, thanks again to Jayne, we have a wee hoover called James :)

The Bearded Wonder and i have been making the most of the lovely weather and have been exploring on the bikes 

That day was sooo hot!

I've been getting crafty and made a matching seat cover and bar bag for my bike out of an old backpack , and a face cover/neckwarmer for the cold weather from the bottom of an old t-shirt, though i have a feeling i may need to make a thicker one!

Angus is getting so big now! He's 9 months old already.
He loves to climb my curtains and thinks he is ever so clever!

A fortnight ago we took him to the vets for The Snip, and he has only just started to speak to me again! Whoops! 

Giving me The Glare

I made some new pantry shelves out of some old drawers bolted together, as our kitchen is so tiny we need all the storage space we can get!
I drew out some labels so i remember what's in each jar 

In very happy news i won a giveaway on Instagram! A rather gorgeous looking cycling jacket, which is 100% waterproof and windproof , which is perfect for our village, being so windy and cold! 

Last week a friend gave me some surplus apples from her tree so yesterday i made some apple chutney, which the apples were quite small and a bugger to peel and now the kitchen stinks of vinegar haha

She will get a jar back as part of her Christmas present, as it should be mature by then :)

The jars look so pretty sitting on the shelf :D
