Garden makeover!

Big thanks to all the helpers of the saturday gardening/makeover club!

What could have taken a slow year took one afternoon, including weeding, planting, sorting, heaving pots, painting of sheds etc

Food, music, friends, warm climate and earthy hands – what could be better?

Before and after pics coming soon, but here’s some action shots!

Please note the second generation raspberry/pistachio cheesecake (double the measurements!)

Just keep swimming

 

For the first in such a long time I went swimming!

I completed about 20 lengths non stop, not much – I know, but a good start!

There will be no photo accompanying of me in my bathers (functional speedo one piece – yawn) I’m afraid. You think i’m nuts!?

But here’s one of my glorious papa as any trip to the baths always reminds me of his taking me and sister lucy to the local swimming pool.

Even though he can’t swim himself, bless him, he still took us and waded in the shallow end, encouraging and calling us on.

So everytime I swim I think of those trips, generally wallow in the weightlessness of being and then hard pound all my anger out in to the strokes. Nothing beats out the frustrations you have like some kick arse exercise. Also nothing feels as great as the hot shower after.

 

old skooool convo

Staying at my folks place last saturday night, as I had a wee outing with the girls and the club was around the corner.

mum: what time are you going out?

me: about 9.30

mum: WHAT! THAT’S THE TIME YOU SHOULD BE GOING TO BED!!!!

to be fair, i didn’t help the situ by rolling in past 2, very worse for wear.

karma bit my arse back…..with an enormous hangover.

notes to note:

new top – saino’s – bargainous at £18

new nail colour – ‘Diva coral’, max factor and lippy to match ‘pink brandy’

Hula hoop – benefit (bought with b’day vouch) has somehow managed to make me look as orange as! even though she promised it had no orange pigment in it. Apparently you can layer the powder on to build the desired ‘natural brown tan’ effect. Effing liar! #blameitonthecamera

delicish signature nancy drew cocktail – Lychee martini.
