So…what did I learn yesterday?
After complaining about the briefness of our Summer here in the UK, lamenting the passing of warm days & the onset of almost Monsoon conditions (without the humidity obviously!!) I pulled up the blinds yesterday morning to brilliant, gorgeous, fabulous, energy giving sunshine!
The sky was blue with fluffy white clouds, my rambling rose producing new, tiny pink buds & the temperature was warm enough to warrant slipping on a sundress!
And I got so much done!!! I washed down paintwork, weeded the borders, hung out numerous loads of washing, each one dry by the time the next was hung out! What is it about sunny weather that just supercharges my energy levels?!!
I sat a while, just soaking up the sunshine & snapped a few shots of my (still) nice & tidy garden…I’m so pleased that I’ve managed to keep on top of it all this year!!
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…Thanks Anna, for sending me the roots in the post back in Spring!
Someone told me recently that they are actually a weed, but I love them! I must admit that I planted them in a container though, because like Mint & Bindweed, planted in the ground they’d take over, & I have enough to contend with, with the Brambles from the fields next door!!!
Finally…today the boys went back to school!! (Did I say Yay!!) I guess you could say that I learned to appreciate how quiet the house CAN be!!!
Nathan was sporting his new ‘Justin Beiber’ haircut, which I had to help blow-dry this morning!! He is such a poser!!! But I think it’s quite nice that he cares about his appearance!
Of course, for Alex, he was returning for his second year & to his new timetable of selected exam subjects, so he was quite nervous. But both boys cam home smiling, having enjoyed their days.
Nathan had earned his first ‘Personal Achievement’ point (what were called ‘House Points’ in my day), so he was pleased with himself!!
But what will I be documenting as my lesson learned for today? There are a few to choose from, so I’ll share that with you tomorrow, when I’ve had a chance to decide & scrap!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend…just hope the sun keeps shining!!!! :)
