Afternoon all
Well what a day. Planned to head off to Home Pierpoint the National Watersports Centre to have a good wander and blow away the cobwebs, but opened the curtains to see everything white. Now that's not normally enough to put us off but the sight of a 4 x 4 sliding sideways round the roundabout outside our house is! So in the end its chilling and sewing (and the glass of wine). What a tough life I lead. The sewing is partly for the lovely flower themed swap being organised by Sew Scrumptious. Cant wait to find out who I will be sending my goodies to.
Told my daughter that I was starting this blog and she reminded me of lots of the really stupid things I've done in the past and so I've decided to note them down and tell a few tales when my blog inspiration falters.
In the meantime I've added a few pictures from my garden this morning. My 'retreat' doesn't seem to conjure up balmy days in the sun here, but it is pretty, especially viewed from the warmth of my snug. Just off to have toasted teacakes yummm!

Bye for now
