In between the rain drops, our view has changed, now we can see the huge building our neighbours have built, it is not an issue, at a glance it looks like a high fence, in the summer the plants on the back fence will hide most of it. I am pleased it is wooden, bricks would not have the soft natural finish.
This is the only colour inside, these are all silk and many years old, in an older jug from hubby's family, I look at these rather than out the kitchen window.
My amaryllis is doing well, I am pleased to see a second bud, I now only purchase these from garden centres, I pay more, but the plant is stronger, having said that I have not as yet got a bulb to bloom a second time, any tips?
A friend suggested I try this author, he writes crime novels all set locally, just outside of Portsmouth, I am happy to try any new author.
I am keeping a food diary, something I have never done, I am rather pleased as it does read well, so far I have just stopped snacking and eating less, we both eat healthy and cook from scratch, but I have lost a few pounds.
Friday, I did some sorting in the office, it was a sunny for a couple of hours in the morning and the office was bright, I sorted my bottom craft drawer, and got rid of more magazines and cross stitch books, I now have spare space, later I read and watched some TV.
Saturday we did walk to the village, but the rest of the day was inside, we had to clear one half of our kitchen, moving everything from our tall food cupboard, and the counters, later I read whilst hubby watched TV.
Yesterday, we finished emptying the kitchen, we are having our new gas boiler fitter this morning, plus a pipe renewed, which has caused us to clear out so much giving space for the engineer. We did manage a small walk before the rain started, afternoon we were both inside we are both book worms, so time passes quickly, and we are very comfortable together.
Will is due today, I think I will take him out to lunch, he does like to walk to Darcy's, I don't expect to be able to get into our kitchen until later.
