Busy Saturday

We've had a very busy and productive day. Early this morning DH and I decided to take down the small fence in our garden. It was quite a task but without it the garden looks much bigger. Whilst DH was taking it down I cleared away all the dead leaves and trimmed the shrubs. But I had quite a surprise - I thought as I was working a leaf blew about - it wasn't a leaf but a toad moving around and it certainly made me jump. DS was very good, he knew to wet his hands (all thanks to his veterinary nurse training at college) and carefully put the toad in a large bucket and took it off to the brook where hopefully now has settled in to it's new environment.

Later on we walked into town to get some bits and bobs and enjoyed lunch at Wetherspoons. The bits and bobs turned out to be fours bags of shopping and a new tyre for DS's bike. The walk back seemed very long and we both wished we'd taken the car.

This afternoon I have been working on my Just Nan - I'm quite pleased with how it's growing, all the white is done now so the next bit is the inner wording border. The picture isn't very good as if I use the flash I just get whiteout because it's all white.

We have a quiet day tomorrow although we may be meeting some friends for coffee. Monday I'm off to Stratford Upon Avon with the Year 7 students. We're going to visit Shakespeare's birthplace and take part in a workshop based on A Midsummers Night's Dream, I'm really looking forward to it.


  1. Aww, Mr. Toad is cute! As long as he doesn't attract frogs to your house!

    Have a good time in Stratford-upon-Avon; it's such a pretty area.

  2. Love the JN. DD wants to come with you to Stratford. She has done the Shakespeare trip with school, and loved it.

  3. Your DS has learned well. :0) Must have been something in the sir - we were conifer chopping on Saturday. LOL
    JN is looking lovely - can't wait to see your next update.
    Enjoy the Year 7 trip. :0)

  4. The JN looks lovely.
    Gardening must be the in thing - my Dh has been giving the lawnmower a run round the garden and doing other little jobs too.
    Have fun on the trip.
