Poppy Patchwork

My little bit of this big World

Ummm Sunshine

All tidy again, with loads of things left out
including stitching and photo's on the wall 
 I am loving the dark wood floor
We spend most of the weekend sorting, which meant another load of stuff to our local charity shop, we always take our unwanted things to Save the Children. I did not sort all my drawers, the job seamed just to daunting, the stuff can stay where it is for now. I did decide not to put back 3 shelves on the wall, they attract so much clutter!
My car has been back to the garage on my recent service they found an oil leak in the gearbox, it's now repaired with a new clutch, all under warranty and it's had another clean, it is positively shining almost glowing on our drive. Oh well a couple journeys to work will bring it back to it's normal state.
I have had the past two days off, this cough is keeping me awake at night. On the positive side I do feel better today, so the hope is I will go back to work tomorrow.
The garden is coming to life, we have snowdrops in our front plot along with daffodil growth, lovely green leaves everywhere. In the pots along the side of the house are crocus leaves, and more daffodils leaves in my side garden. I have primroses in the pots along side my greenhouse. My Magnolia tree has loads of buds, the flowers always form before the leaves. Blueberry and blackcurrant bushes have tiny buds forming, plus the start of new growth on my strawberry plants, which are raised in tubs.
February is such a month of promise, but spring waits until March has done it's final winter fling. If we are to have snow it often falls in March.
Still daughter is waiting as we all our for the arrival of grandson.
Now I am going to do some crafting.


  1. It feels so good to get a room back in order. We had 8 inches of snow yesterday, spring seems very far away!

  2. I hope that you're feeling better today. Some of my family have had this cold/cough and have felt rough for quite some time. Jx

  3. I hope you are soon improved and able to enjoy a good nights sleep, this cough virus is awful.

  4. Hope you're feeling better soon. We had a smattering of snow this morning and there's more forecast later on today and over the next couple of days. Spring can't come fast enough for me.

  5. Oh that cough...my Shug had it for a month. It just hung on. I'm glad you are getting over it but be careful, it seems to come back with a vengeance. Spring will be here before we know it. I am ready!
