Diamond encrusted hearts

I love summer holidays!
Its a pleasure baking with the girls, we made butter biscuits then covered them in icing and gems (I think I will eat the plain ones and leave the iced biccys to Millie and Co')

I am VIOLET too...


You surround yourself with art and music and are constantly driven to express yourself. You often daydream. You prefer honesty in your relationships and believe strongly in your personal morals.

Although my favourite colour is really green

Garden delight

Ventured into the garden this morning and didnt get back in till 4.30pm, I had forgotten how much I love the garden. I miss my home grown veggies and apple trees from our old place, We can grow some bits next year, They say that the tax is going up and groceries will get more expensive if thats possible ???
So will be watching the garden this year for where the sunny spots are and where the shade is so I can fit the right plants and veggies in the right positions.
So I got my UV rays I needed, the girls loved the fresh air and went to bed early and feel really positive about next year.
