Time Flies..........

Wow, its been a while since i last posted, but then i was getting used to being back at work! I'm still loving it, even more so when i received my first pay check.. I brought myself a bike to get to and from work as its a bit of a walk, it pink and has a wicker basket at the front, love it!

Here the weather feels more like Autumn then late summer, which is fine by me cause i love that time of year.. Iv noticed the trees are beginning to change a little and some apple trees are full of fruit. Made a lovely apple and blackberry crumble the other day, didn't last long in my house that's for sure.

The sun seem to be out today and i have a million things to be getting on with, so have a wonderful weekend and if your lucky enougth to have good weather, enjoy it..

Working girl!

Wow, what a week! The teas cooking and the gardens watered and had a tidy up. Hair is washed, nails need painting later and uniform needs an iron.. Work has been tiring but iv really enjoyed my first week in the Bookstore..There is much to keep you busy and my feet and legs throb at the end of the day, but they Will get used to it once again.One thing i will do is buy a push bike its a bit of a walk and I don't fancy coming home in the dark once the winter months draw in.. Brought Sage a bike today, ready for when he goes back to school, so i will get mine next month..

New Job and Goodies...

First things first, i got a job! The interview i had yesterday at the Bookstore, that's the one, and i start next week, bring it on!

Brought this sewing box after my interview yesterday, had my eye on it for a while now and it was in the sale so i paid even less for it.. I brought the cushion a while back now both from Past Times. See the material its on, that's what i brought from Hobby craft to make my lampshades with and theres plenty there to make a tablecloth with as well

This my kitchen window and the plant that's growing around the frame is the Wisteria i brought back in May, can' wait to see how it blooms next Spring. The sweetpeas are also from the garden...

The First Harvest

Home made chutney

All to celebrate the first harvest or Lammas as some like to call it

I'm hoping that the seeds i have planted in the spring will bring me a bountiful harvest within my life over the next few weeks, fingers crossed for i have another interview Wednesday at a local bookshop....
