Poppy Patchwork

My little bit of this big World

Sunday 16 May 2010

A very English giveaway

We have had another very busy week, Kev is now much better, he had food poisoning, and was very ill for a week, he is going back to work on Monday. I got my results from the hospital, and the news was not as good as we hoped, June is going to be a tough month for me, but with my darling hubby, my lovely supportive daughters and wonderful friends, I will work through it all.
Below Josh has grown some courgette plants for my garden, I have them in my little greenhouse waiting for the weather to get a bit warmer.

Yesterday was sunny, Fliss Steve and Josh came for lunch, we had a great time after they went to Port Solent to have a drink of coke and look at the yacht's, there are some beautiful ones docked there. Su popped in for a while and Gav spent the day at Wembely watching his beloved Portsmouth playing Chelsea in the cup final. Portsmouth lost, but it was great to see them in the final, Portsmouth is our local football team.

Last week I had a bright idea, I really wanted a vegetable patch in our garden I had planted up a large bag, but it was not what I wanted, so yesterday late afternoon, Kev started work for me.

Kev lifted 10 of the decking planks which ran up the side of the garden fence, this area was narrower than the main decking and I had been using the area for pots for herbs and veg, he left the frame of the decking in place, cut one piece for an edging. We popped to our local garden centre, where I cheated and brought young plants and here you see our results, I am so pleased, Kev has battered and bruised hands, the decking was nailed into place and hard to lift. I brought a rustic fence and put the herb pot's at the end of the decking area. The tree is at the other end of the veg plot. Our lawn is just a patch of earth, but we are on holiday soon so it will have to wait until we are home to look after it once we lay the turf.
Now to my title, I have been blogging on this site for over a year, and with almost 8000 hits, and I love everything about blogging, I love to be able to keep a record of every thing I do, I also print off my blogs and keep it as a diary. But most of all I love reading your blogs.
So here is my give away, this is a counted cross stitch kit, complete with 16 BPI aider, threads (Floss). A perfect English cottage, and copied on the Periwinkle cottage. I am happy to send this to anywhere in the world, all I would like you to do is place a message on this post, but with a bit of a twist, I would like you to tell me of your favorite blog site, good luck. I will ask Josh to help me by picking a random name out.
Closing date will be Sunday 30th, after we return from our break in France.
Good Luck
