Birds

Today is another sunny day and I have been working in our garden, you can follow that tale on my second blog here. Now I am back inside I went looking for signs of spring in my mini world.



The small boat is found near my beach house, and there are always seagulls around, I often see them on the boat, we have a couple of resident ducks, they move around alot, but these two are always together.

Under the eves on the beach hut there is a nest. there was nothing at my bird feeder today, you can see it at the back of this picture, it hangs on the other side of the beach house.

In the back yard of my kitchen there are a couple or Robins, one is on the fence and the other is by the nest in the old boot. I think I should spend time here cleaning up the yard, all the flowers are dead!

Making Plans

I have had my operation and have spent the week at home, I have limited use of my left arm, so I have not done very much, watched all your blogs and surfed the net. I have found another rug to stitch, I love the pattern and of course it's green my favorite colour.


I have started planning for my Attic space of the house. In my first ever blog, I showed how the house was to look if I followed the plans, the roof space would not be used, but my plan was always to dispose of their roofing and create my own. I love everything Georgian and this week I have been on Google looking at roof tops, plus reading all the books I have. I want to create something like the house below.

With three attic windows, and two chimneys at the back. I have already got items for the maids room, and I want some space to be for attic with broken furniture and other things stored there, I even have my spiders ready to live up there. The third room I think should be for children, I don't want a school room so I am thinking of a day bed and a cot, but I am reserving my decision until I know what space I will have. I also want to check out how the rafters would have looked from the inside.

Spring time


With spring in the air, I thought it was time to place my spring plants, I have brought each at local shows, Its the big show at Lyndhurst next weekend, and I won't be able to get there.
So I am saving my pocket money for later in the year.

I will pop to Hobby craft later in the week, I have to make Joshua a pair of black trousers with a red stripe up each leg, he is going to a show in Southampton, and wants to go as
Murray Wiggle.
You should search out the Wiggles, they are great fun.
