I'm back for 12 whole days now, what a treat. I am full of a cold which is lucky that it coincides with time off in a way. Lots happening here. My table has been made and, god willing I am collecting it on Saturday (as long as it fits in my sisters large car which she is currently measuring). I am so excited to finally have a proper dining table and can't wait to have people over to enjoy it with me. Also work is starting in my garden next week for the decking/trellis work so I will gain back my privacy and also gain a lot of space. I am going to build out the deck over the slope which gives me way more flat garden area for pots and things. Really looking forward to that.
I arrived home last night (after a hideous day of 13 hours travelling) to find that my beautiful climbing rose Zepherine Drouhin) in the front has finally come into flower! It is not tall yet, but I can just imagine what it will be like when it grows up the full length of the house, every year it is going to get bigger and better now! I want more climbing roses and maybe this week I will find some. It was supposed to be red, but it is more of a lovely dark pink colour, looks gorgeous.
Now it is time for me to get organised and start planning meals again, shopping wisely and creating things in the kitchen. I have been pretty good with not spending much, even though I have been away, as all my meals are provided when I am on tour, but I have spent a fortune on petrol and trains! How annoying.
Rest and relaxation for a few days first though because, quite honestly I can't be bothered to do much except enjoy home and sunshine while it lasts.
