Need I explain!
They finally found the leak ! Now I have to see if we still have some spare tiles to cover the ones they broke otherwise the whole wall will have to be tiled again!
The wait now begins to see when they are coming back to fix this mess and put the tiles back...sigh!
Looking on the bright side of things this sweet little chap joined the family on 6th April 2021,which is coincidentally my father's birthday too. My father who would have been his great great grandfather. Dad would have loved to have seen another boy in the family. He always said he was inundated with women, after having 7 girls I am inclined to think he was right 😀
My great nephew Cole David Julian says hello!👶
I thought the hat I sent him would be too small but it looks as if it will last him a couple of months. Mind you these babes grow so quick!
Here you have Cole all cuddled up in the blanket I made for him which I displayed to you here at the end of that post.
Cherie from North Yorkshire Craft Guru blog and I have been having an improvised goodies swap. I received my parcel last Monday from Cherie and as Cherie has received my parcel to her as well I can now show you what I received.
Lots of eye candy and with loads of pretty sparkly bits! Unfortunately the photo doesn't pick up the glitter,such a shame.
Opening the parcel was really delightful as all this spilled out and I didn't know what to look at first. Pretty pretty ribbons, golden and silver cords and lacy fabric. Fabulous!
I just love buttons and these are gorgeous. Difficult to say which I like best but I'll just say all of them because they all are so cute!
For me these are tops! These dainty fairy antennas are perfect for my flower fairies. I didn't know you could buy them. This is so much easier than making them as I have had to do up to now,as you can see in this photo of a previous Flower fairy RAOCK that I made.
In a recent email Cherie wrote "I hope you have fun making something with the contents." You can be sure of that Cherie! It wont be straight away but I have plans already. Thank you so much Cherie,everything will be used!
Our Palm trees have had a hair cut
The Yellow blob you can see half way down the Palm tree is the man from the gardens dept in the local council who has just given that Palm tree its haircut. They used to do it by shinning up the palm tree with just a belt I see they use a traditional ladder now 😊
I have the egg shells all mulched up ready to use on my indoor plants. I am still hesitant about sprinkling it on the orchids so will ask google for more info. I have read green tea is good for indoor plants too. As it is I have one orchid that is determined to flower for spring and here you can see she is all about doing that.
My St Valentines gift is also doing well. Amazing how long the flowers last.
