Days go by so quickly………..

My days are filled with dog walking and gardening with of a bit of housework in between and we’ve only 2 days left before the long haul of the summer holidays  its seems to have crept up on me like a bite on the bum  ouch !!
The garden is producing plenty of vegetables, today we had our first dwarf cucumber and between me and my eldest  son have eated it all.  The tomatoes are growing well just looking forward to them all ripening up now, the poor sweetcorn took a bit of a bashing the last few days in the wind so we’ve tied them all loosely to canes for just a little support, but they are coming on fantastically and we now have several little tufts of fluff, where the ears of corn are growing.
When we started our project of turning the back garden into an allotment, i really didn’t realise how much fun and pleasure we would get aswell as the sore aching joints and blisters but its all been worth it.  Along the way we’ve made mistakes but have learnt and thrive to do bigger and better next year.  We have plans already to build at least another 3 raised beds, a greenhouse and a corner raised rockery with water feature ( this will actually help dispose of a massive pile of rubble).  At the same time the top fencing on all 3 sides needs replacing, we’ll build areas for composting and install a water butt at the side of the green house.   Omg that sounds like loads still to do… but theres no rush we’re still be here tomorow.
Only a few days ago i was sadly reminded that there was ONLY 160days till christmas ……   aaaahhhh panic i’ve not a penny saved  so as of today i’m going to put away £4 a day and fingers crossed there’ll be enough in the pot for all of christmas.  At the same time to help support putting money away we’re going to try and shop and cook more wisely and an action plan is in the planning
Today has been a good day

Amelia’s 1st birthday

This sunday just gone, we had a family gathering at Amelia’s 1st birthday.  It was great spending some time with the family just chilling and of course a great photo opportunity.

Over this last month i’ve had several photography opportunities, formal gatherings, casual get togethers and then our scenic walks.  I do love taking photos but feel the most enjoyable are the scenic stuff, but want to practice more on people photos.


Still working on putting together a picture album celebrating my nephews christening, but with over 500 plus photos to sieve through it make take some time
