Feeling Better!

Its amazing how quickly you improve when you remember to take your tablets!!!! I was put on the 'black dog' tablets a while back and guess who forgot to take them whilst she had been ill!!! So I took one about midnight the night before last, when I worked out what was wrong with me, and by the morning the jumpyness had stopped, so I need to wean myself off them, not just stop dead!!!!!!!
I have done alot of knitting and finished my first ever pair of socks, really chuffed

Been contacted by my Great Grandfathers, brother's, grandson, much to the delight of my mother and me of course. GGrandpa James Lee had 2 brothers and a sister and there appears to be a grandson from his brother Thomas, my mum, grand daughter from James and a grand daughter from Hannah, the sister. So we will try and get them all together!! Exciting hey!

Are you fed up with the rain yet!! I think its the only thing thats been keeping me good, if it had been glorious I would have tried to get out in the garden before now!!

So what has been going on in the garden.....

well the patio is a tip, covered in the dismantled greenhouse, which K very kindly helped hubby to dismantle, the only problem is I'm not sure Hubby will remember how it all fits back together, so we may have to put it up before K goes back to Uni, she has a memory like an elephant, so if I get stuck ????????????????????????

The jungle garden is really growing well now, in all honesty it is probably all a bit close together but I think the effect will be fabulous!!!

This is my brugmansia, the one I have had 3 years, it has been well and truely battered the last few days but still it flowered and the scent is beautiful.

Just look what one of my hens laid

over 3 inches long and weighs 4oz. Makes your eyes water to just think about it!!!!

and look at this lovely lady, according to my book she is a Scarlet Tiger (Callimorpha dominula) I have never seen one before, she is quite beautiful. How do I know its a lady well look


she has a visitor!!!!!

I have not blogged for a while as I have been rather poorly. I took myself to the docs today as I though being ill since a week ago Sunday a bit much! Of course its a virus! The difficulty apart from the throat infection, is, everything inside my head 'jumps', very dis-orientating (sp)! Of course it didn't happen whilst I was with the Doc! I have another appointment for next week!!!
Sadly for me my 'M.E.' has reared its ugly head, so it will be a slow climb back to my old self! I am totally washed out and can't even manage a toddle to the bottom of the garden and back.
K has bought the First Season of 'Prison Break' on DVD, so I have been watching this, quite riveting. Plus all my favourite classics, Jane Eyre, Pride & Predjudice, Mansfield Park etc, you get the idea!
Anyway hope you are all well, back as soon as I can. x
