A productive weekend.

Saturday was a very successful day in the sense that I washed my car, dug up the sweetcorn from my raised bed and managed a 3.5 mile walk and a quick cuppa with Yvonne, all the things I wanted to achieve so very happy.

 My car before and after - the mud is due to the farmers dropping large amounts of mud on the road and not cleaning it up, then the rain comes down and the roads are like mud baths making them very dangerous at the moment.

 My raised bed before and after - the sweetcorn was from a packet named baby sweetcorn, mine was not baby!!!
Sprouts and leeks left in - need to decide what to put in next.

Last link of the week to Lucky Snapping.  As most of you know I turned 50 in May and decided that I would do something every month for a year to celebrate the year.  Not always something big but just something that I have either been putting off or would normally say no to.  So May saw me completing the London Moonwalk, June Mick and I went to France to visit family war graves, July, Mick and I spent a couple of days walking along the west coast down Lands End way,  August we went to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta, September I had a weekend away with Yvonne, crafting, October Mick and I went to Westonbirt Arboretum, November I am going to stay with Bernadette and have a shopping spree and go to see the Wildlife Photographer of the year exhibition, December I am going to finally treat myself to a pedicure and manicure, January - not sure yet, February I am hoping Mick and I will get our act together and go to Iceland for a few days to see the Northern Lights but not sure if I have convinced him on that one yet!! March - not sure, April going to see Fiddler on the Roof with Paul Michael Glaser (from Starsky and Hutch days) and that will bring me back to May.


  1. My car isn't quite as dirty as yours was, so it will be easier for you to clean, if you'd like to just pop round please :-)
    A celebration each month sounds brilliant, wish I'd thought of that, still, only another four and a half years to wait (and save up) for the next big one. Joy x x

  2. Your weekend was more productive that mine. Spent most of the time taking the velux shutter to pieces and putting it back again because the spring had sprung. It still does not work!! Have a good week Diane

  3. Snap - I'm trying to get tickets to see the same production of Fiddler on the Roof in Salisbury in December.

  4. Karen, that is a great list of things planned and things to do. I find planning even little things make life most enjoyable, then life is not drifting along.

  5. Karen can you believe we have looked at N lights on Marco Polo for Feb buy 1 get one free but Peter is not sure either lol!

  6. Very shiny - how long will that last??

    Our raised beds are at the other end of the growth cycle - plants just coming out from the pea-straw mulch.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  7. A good way to celebrate your special birthday, why not continue with monthly treats once the year is up, you deserve them . :)

  8. i like the idea of doing something every month for a year...yours has been a productive one for sure x
