Riots, Bamboo and a wedding

Time for an update....I have to say first and foremost that I've been consumed by the events of rioting and looting since Friday and have busied myself with tasks trying my hardest to not feel frightened, sad or let down by the thuggery that has taken hold of a vast majority of our cities here in the UK. It felt only right just to say a little something here. I have my own opinions and thought of the events but I wont voice them here. I don't wish to get into any political debate about it, I just hope its been brought to an end now.

Thursday we travelled up north to watch my nephew get married on Friday, which was a beautiful day. Saturday through to yesterday we were working in the garden, trying to get it to a 'tidy' stage and planted 6 huge bamboo trees in hope it will screen off the garden a little. So far its working a treat :) I have been doing a little sewing and patiently waiting for some fabric and purse frames to arrive (please Mr.Post Man deliver them tomorrow). After having been given a huge bag of red peppers we have been experimenting with different ways of fitting them into our meals. Our favourite so far being stuffed peppers with choriso :D yum!!

Speaking of vegetables.....I might just be turning into Margo from The Good Life. Last week I planted a whole load of seeds and they are just starting to pop up. Hopefully we will be having, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, parsnips, onions, lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, courgettes and cabbage. Grow little seedlings grow!!


  1. I LOVED The Good Life, well not when it was originally on, of course, but when they started the repeats on BBC1 in the 1990's. Oooh, sounds like fun.

    I'm super glad the weather stayed nice for the wedding.

    Also, the riots have been awful...I have family in London, but thankfully not near to where the riots have been, although my brother in law got caught up at work at one point, but all is good. It's truly shocking, and makes you wonder what the parents are doing and thinking at this stage, I mean it's not hard to figure out where little *whoever* has been seeing as he has turned up with loads of new things. I hope they all get themselves sorted VERY soon. xx

  2. Oooh Margo! I love Margo! Nice to hear from you hun!
