Making progress.

We have been in our ‘new’ house for about a year now, well it will be a year on the 13th of November! We still have lots to do. We started with the laundry room (still not finished). We’ve had the new boiler put in, new windows and doors but we’ve not really made it much further. I have a huge list of what we need to do, we’ve ticked off around 9 of the 40. I know there’s no rush, I just don’t want to get to the end of the list to find we have to then start again.

Anyway here’s a picture of what our garden used to look like…


And here it is now… it’s still no where near finished but it’s a huge improvement…

I think the sunshine helps too 🙂

The plan is to have a vegetable patch on the area in front of the shed and a small lawn area to the side. The top slope, behind the shed, is where Chris and Pants are going to set up their shooting range…

The top tier will be a herb garden, the next two tiers will have dinosaur plants and other assorted ferns and the bottom tier is our pet cemetery 😦 RIP Tywin and Mr White

We spent this glorious Sunday afternoon moseying around Homebase disagreeing about what things we are going to put in the garden and as always I pointed out things that we need and as always Chris pointed that we don’t need them yet, all in all a productive day.

However I did end up purchasing a rather cute little herb pot, which now sits proudly on my kitchen window-sill 🙂 I can safely say that I have not felt the need to cook with parsley or basil at any point in my life, so I will either be scrambling for said herb cooking ideas or setting up shop in the front garden.


Next Saturday I’ve decided I should get on with the laundry room…that should be interesting, I’ve never wallpapered anything before in my life! Now that I’ve told you guys I can’t back out of it neither, I can already feel the migraine creeping in…


Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. 

Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, 

next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
