This was me outside in my nightie, waving goodbye to hubby and T! See the low mist I just love it when its like this. I must admit I think autumn is one of my most favourite times of year, more so if its a dryish autumn. Shame its so short!
I have been blog hopping, and only just realised I passed my 10,000! I still haven't sent out my peg doll to Ex Shammickite how bad am I, I do hope she'll understand. My hubby phoned the surgeon and has moved the op forward to the 19th! Thats how bad it is!
Have you ever hung washing out in your greenhouse?
As you can see, I have! Well I never said there was any glass in it!!!
Well not dieing as in the end of my life, but dyeing as in adding colour to ones life!!! Well not exactly my life more like K's life! She had bought some lovely cotton throws from IKEA to put over the sofa's in their lounge,they where cotton colour, you know cream!!! Then someone had an accident with some bolognaise sauce, they washed them straight away but as you know bolognaise and cream don't mix, so they are now being rescued by me!
1 Lovely Mummy! 1 washing machine 2 stained cotton throws 2 packs of machine wash dye 500g salt
Pre wash the throws so they are damp. Weigh out the salt.
Add dye to the drum, cover with the salt add damp throws and wash on a 40C programme. Remembering not to look in the washing machine while the wash is in progress as it will make you worry about all future washes that may come out 'PURPLE'!!!!!!
I said 'DON'T LOOK IN THE WASHING MACHINE!!!!!!!!' ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
Fortunately the finished result is I think pretty good!
and I washed some tea towels after and they are not purple!!
Well we had made a decision about what to do, and whixch way the greenhouse should face..............
The major disadvantage to both ways is the amount of space it takes up. But if you get a big greenhouse as reasonably as we did, then you don't look a gift horse in the mouth!!!
So its deciding which is the lesser of two evils!!!
This way.... it comes further up the garden, plus I will have to allow for access through the doors which will take more room. Add a new path and the doors will be facing north! Plus we will have to redo the ground work!
This way, you seem to see more of it, the path is already there and the doors will not need any more space for access, plus the ground work is done!!
So yes you've guessed it we stuck with the original plan (2nd pic), but sadly rain stopped play, so it remains unfinished. Next weekend the rugby is on so I doubt much will be done then either!!!!
So what did the specialist say? Well I am going in for a Laparoscopy click to find out more! He has had a look up, now he will have a look around inside to see if he can see anything that is causing the pain!! So that is another general anisthetic, so more brain cells lost!!!! I did ask if he could do a 'nip & tuck' as well as I was being so kind in allowing him to do all this to me, the least he could do was do this for me. I think thats fair don't you?? Sadly he said no!!!!
I am a stay at home mum, due to a daughter with Neurological Diversity! I am too busy to get bored and how people fit in work I'll never know! I craft, sewing, knitting and anything else that takes my fancy. I garden and have dug up part of my garden for veg patches! I now have two greenhouses both heated! Plus a new jungle bed which I started 2007! This has really captured my imagination to the extent that I now own 30 Brugmansia Bushes/Trees and many other beautiful Exotic Plants, so join me and see what mischief I get up to whilst home alone!!!
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick the flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sausages at a go Or only bread and pickle for a week And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry And pay our rent and not swear in the street And set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple. by Jenny Joseph found here http://www.tonya.me.uk/fun/warning.asp
