What else is a girl to do!
Got up this morning after two days of glorious sunshine, geared up to head for a car boot and return with oodles of goodies and.....Its raining.....Raining in my heart! Well not quite but certainly putting a damper on the day in more ways than one!
Ok, new plan. Garden centre at place where car boot is supposed to be so head that way and take it from there.
But before I tell you how our day turned out let me take you back to Friday.
Sun blazing down, windows open, birds singing. I am in the garden with lovely book, glass in hand..... stop right there! No I am up to my elbows in suds, cleaning, washing windows, changing beds. I think I got it wrong somehow. DH is busy repainting the summerhouse and it looks great but more about that another time.
I am in the garden with lovely book, glass in hand... No this time I am shopping and painting furniture in the back garden!
So Sunday, today, its raining. Why do we women not take our own advise and forget the work when the sun shines!! Will we ever learn, I don't think so.
Well we arrived at the garden centre, the rain was just easing by now, but needless to say the car booters hadnt stayed. You cant blame them. So into the centre to see what else I can spend my money on.
An all wood kitchen at what I can only describe as a ridiculous price! If only!! If you have seen my earlier posts you will see that my kitchen is of the freestanding variety and I dont normally hanker after a 'fitted' kitchen...but this was so lovely, I'm working on it..
Anyway I digress. we eventually landed up here..
We saw lots of these..
Some rather formal bits....
And some lovely natural bits..
We were a day or two early for the full display!
Some exciting nature finds
and I must confess to kitchen garden envy...
There were lots of these....
and even these...
It was definitely not one to be saved for a rainy day....but the sun came out as we emerged from the tour of the house and kept shining until we left. Of course all this walking, taking in nature and history makes one very hungry so we had to stop off here on the way home..
and my only purchases today..
and yes that is DH in the background doing washing up.. He obviously wants fresh home made bread and lemon curd tomorrow...Wonder if I can broach the subject of that kitchen now.....?
Hope you enjoyed our little tour,
Time to let the camera cool down a little
PS A very kind lady did a post the other day with a Wiggly bag photo tutorial and I forgot to note her name/blog. If you are she or you know who it may have been, can you please email me. Details on my profile.
