Hope you are all keeping warm it is certainly getting colder here, I don't think we were far off the first frost here last night.

Yesterday was wet and miserable and I had a very lazy day, I caught up with the baking Masterclass and then I watched back to back, Nigella Express and Nigella Bites and then did some reading. I felt very lazy but I enjoyed having a relaxing day.

Today is a much nicer day. We have been to the carboot and spent a bit of time in the garden.

My produce seems to be doing well.




I really love this micro salad, so tasty.



Lovely Lettuce



Beetroot


 Rocket coming through, one thing I will be growing lots of is Salad produce, I just love it.


Radishes just coming through now.


 Nice to have a little colour in the garden we probably won't do any more to it in the Winter.












 Hubby was brutal with the butterfly bush, but it was just so big it was taking over the garden.


Before


 After. As you can see it still has some shoots and will still grow again and I also took some cuttings which seem to be doing well.



Fruit bushes along the back.




 Still no birds on the bird table, but this little chap comes in every morning.

This morning I also saw a Dunnock hopping around on the garden, so that's a start I suppose.








 At the carboot we found a brand new curtain strip for £2.00 which we will use for the new curtains be got from the bootsale last week for the patio doors. Hubby got some more cheap timber so he was happy. I spent a grand total of £1.90



I just love the mug, it is fine bone china, I love the shape, I have have been looking out for a new one for ages, the one I have is getting a bit worn and has chips along the base but then I have had it for about 10 years.




I do enjoy my tea in a nice mug.


Also today, we got a mower for free from Freecycle, hubby cleaned it up and it runs fine, our landlord left us a petrol one but now at least we have our own for when we need one in the future.
