Lovely Lawn!

It's done - hooray!!  I have a new lawn.  The saga of the VT lawn started years ago when the conservatory builders accidentally tipped a whole wheelbarrow of cement over it!  No amount of grass seed could ever  sort that!  The weeds grew and gradually took over and what little grass there was became suffocated by a carpet of moss!  But now after a day of toil (Mum and Dad you are stars!), skimming, raking (I've discovered muscles that I did not existed!) trips to the tip (thank you Mitch) - a gorgeous green lawn.  I'm now going to start reading those boxes of weed and feed.... ;-)

Getting Organised....

I'm finally sorting out this blogging lark and I've created a new one purely for my writing -  Please visit if you fancy a read of ongoing projects, items published or about to be submitted. Don't visit too quickly though - it's pretty bare at the moment! ;-)

A Trip to London

On our quest to find more elephants, the boys and I spent Saturday in London - we managed to find lots more as we travelled around King's Cross, Oxford Circus, Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and more!  Exhausting but brilliant fun :-)

This is Panda-Elephant near Marble Arch - becoming a real favourite.

And... Mitchell sporting his new hat and relaxing in Hyde Park.

I'm not moaning really but I have the smallest kitchen imaginable and this is where my son chooses to sit and serenade me!  Actually it's lovely and I know one day he will no longer want to sit on my worktop and play me the latest songs he has learned so I thought I would capture him on film - I can feel a scrapbooking page coming on.... :-)

Elephant Madness!

I fear this could be something of an addiction - I ventured out again in my lunch hour today, just beyond Monument and found these two!

Thursday 6 May 2010


The elephants have arrived in London and they are stunning. I work in the City so armed with my camera I rushed out of the office at lunchtime and joined the tourists at More London (the new swanky bit of London Bridge!) and snapped away. Here are just a few. There are approximately 250 in all - I'm hoping to get a picture of each one - including the one at Heathrow Terminal 5 (thank you Angus travelling to Kiev!)

Sketch Challenge

As part of my ongoing untreatable addiction to scrapbooking - here is a page I've produced for Sarah's Cards monthly sketch challenge
I never seem to tire of taking photos of daffodils! Spring is definitely the most beautiful season :-)

A Strange Variety of Garden Plant!

Take one window box, plant ivy to the middle section allowing it to trail profusely, purchase half a dozen or so Winter Pansies, make sure they are sturdy looking plants to withstand the chilly night air. Plant three each side of the ivy and within a short time you'll have a nice balanced attractive window box.... alternatively... plant six and three will be flattened by the cat who thinks a window box is a mighty fine place to spend the day!!!
