My little bit of this big World

Lost week

Tulips for the pot by my back door
 Reduced seeds, 
I counted their cost to over £18 at full price.
 I got the little glass container for my nice stones and gems
freeing the larger one for another use
My new one cost just £2.50
 Two more library books read
I had to pop to town on Wednesday, so I went to Wilko's, at this time of year I can't keep away, as expected their gardening section was much smaller and loads on sale. I spent £12.05,  on bulbs (not in sale), seeds, a pack of 3 gardening gloves, and the lovely little glass thingy. I have added it to my spend for this month. There were loads of things I could have got so very cheap, but I resisted.
I have been home the rest of the week, doing loads of reading. Monster in the Closet, had a good plot, but for me far too many characters, all related to each other, I thought it got unnecessary messy at one point.
The Little Teashop of Lost and Found, I really enjoyed, normally a bit light for me, but it did have a good story line, one twist I did not see coming,  I even enjoyed the very predictable ending.  
We were on the ferry coming home from France for 8 hours last Saturday, and loads of people around us had colds and coughing, Will had a bit of a sniffle, but as he was teething (now has 2 teeth), we did not think much of it. Poor Will has had his first cold and by Monday I was unwell, I thought just a cold, but it went onto my chest, first one in ages, I am slowly feeling better, the coughing is now not so uncomfortable, but my sides are aching.
So a lazy weekend at home here, we are due out at friends tonight, they live across the road, so I will come home early after enjoying a lovely takeaway together. Sunday I require hubby to dig a couple of holes to move a couple of shrubs, and I am hoping for some time in our garden in the sunshine. 


  1. Oh no! I suppose that a ferry could be a breeding ground for germs. Hope you can shift it with some good British Autumn sunshine. I do love Wilko. Sadly I don't live anywhere near one so if out and about and I see one,I' m in there! Their gardening section never disappoints.

  2. I hope both Will and yourself will be feeling better soon. Lily has been full of cold the last two days so our original plans for the weekend have had to be put on hold. X

  3. I hope you're feeling better soon. Those are fancy tulips, they'll look lovely by your back door.

  4. Hope you are feeling much better.
    I really enjoyed The Littlest Tea Shop too, a good easy read.
