Just going to get this bit of a moan over and done with !
I am bored of these digestive problems it has been going on since mid February! I have had no end of allergy & intolerance tests and nothing has come to light. Now it seems of all things it could be the thyroid medicine I take that is the cause of all my tummy problems. It is the only medicine I take at present. The dose has been lowered and I go back to my doctor next Tuesday. My GP is actually totally baffled as to what is the cause of it. I despair! ... sniff!
My balcony garden revisited
After seeing this wonderfully illustrated post from Katie on I live,I love,I craft,I am me blog I thought about adding some small garden ornaments to my balcony garden. Further inspiration came from Katie in her reply to the comment I left on that post,"I have a few in my garden and you have to look hard for them so when you see them it is a surprise", I very much like that idea.
I have made a start! I have pushed the majority of the pots into the corner where I only had the rubber tree plant and bunched them all up together.
I have also dotted around some little garden features which I will probably change around a bit when I sit down and have a good look at it.
Can you see them? There were a few more
ornaments but I thought it was getting too fussy so I got rid of them.
I am planning to buy something like this to put against the wall under the green wall pot, mostly for the cacti.
I have also been looking at a mini solar powered fountain online. It might be a bit ambition that but we'll see. 🌳 I would like to put a few more pots on the wall but I have to catch Sr P in the right mood for that. I also want more flowering plants and a exuberant hanging plant to go in the green pot on the wall. I need some more colourful pots so a trip to Agost the pottery village is on my list too. There is no hurry of course but now I have made my mind up about the balcony and its mini garden I would like to get it done. I can use the balcony all year round as we installed hermetic sliding windows some years ago so we could enjoy that extra space in all weathers although when we were both working we rarely used it.
A little Hug-Babe RAOCK
I had some yarn leftovers from the jumper I made,mentioned in my last post , so I made this little Hug-Babe from those leftovers for little Arabella to carrying in her pocket.
The basic pattern comes from Nic Thompson a fellow RAOC member and she calls them little hugs. I tweaked it a little bit and gave her a bonnet and a dress. I had to embroidery the face because it is for a little one. I am not impressed with the result as usual. I am useless embroidering faces.
Just the right size for a little pocket!
A little GD time
Cookie baby (GD) has been spending the day with us today and she is meeting up with some friends this afternoon at the pool here. It is the best place to be in this heat.
She brought me one of her home baked Country Crusty loaves of bread. She knows just how much I like home baked bread!
I asked to take her photo which she wasn't keen on so I said I would just photograph her curls.
Lucky girl she has beautifully thick curly hair. I so wish she would grow it again it used to reach her waist. I understand though it is so hot having long hair in this heat.
