March Challenge - Day 13



First of all apologies to Debbie and Rachel I deleted your comments on yesterday's post by accident, and also to Barbara who has let me know her comments aren't coming through? I shall be more careful.

Tonight's tea is easy, I cooked extra roast yesterday, so it will just need to be warmed up for a few minutes.




Today is a no spend day.

March spend so far - £61.59




Today has been a beautiful day, warm enough to go in the garden without a coat.







I planted some begonias, and some lillies and then couldn't do any more planting as we have run out of compost, so we will get some more on Wednesday (B & Q discount day). So I did a little more weeding and tidying.





Lovely to see splashes of colour every where.

  1. That pale blue pansy is absolutely gorgeous, I do love pansies (in fact I have a tattoo of a purple one). You do have a lot of colour in your garden.....inevitably, our puppy Betty is eating/trampling on a lot of our plants!

  2. See, back on track with your spending! Yay!
    Lots of lovely flowers in your garden.
    Now, about what I said on my blog, yesterday, guess what? My {insert bleep here} back pulled this morning when I was brushing my teeth, of all things! So, here I sit confined to quarters until it heals again! See what I mean about not getting a fair crack at the garden? Piffle.

    1. That's awful Deborah when the the slightest thing sets it off, I have been out on our inversion table this morning, I have had a soak in the bath as well, and now have a lavender and wheat bag resting on the bottom of my spine now and I will have to get the Ibuprofen out again later. I do hope yours and mine problems ease soon, it is not nice at all x

    2. Why are we both like this when there is so much to do, especially in the garden? Yes, wishes for both of us to be up and at'em very soon!

  3. You are doing very well with your No Spend, Marlene! I shelled out on the AA car breakdown renewal today - that's a saga in itself.
    Lovely plants in your garden, what lovely spring colour! We have spent some time in the garden today, just tidying up, and I was outside with just a light jumper and jeans on, but it's gone much chillier tonight.

    1. It is a blow when we have to shell out isn't it, but these things must be done to save getting in a pickle. Lovely for you to get out as well, it still a bit nippy in the evenings as you say. Warmer days are on the way though.

  12. It's so lovely to get out into the garden at last and, unsurprisingly given how you look after it, yours is looking especially beautiful. X
