Garden Centre and Enjoying the Sunshine...

Hi everyone I hope you are all well and I want to say thank you for all your sweet comments on the driving test and my hair! I think ill keep it like this from now on.
We have been enjoying some wonderful warm weather these past few weeks, so much in fact we made the most of it and visited our local garden centre, I love to visit this place there is so much eye candy to drool over, mum and I went last week, not to really buy anything just to browse and enjoy the day out........

Its only 15 Min's from where we live, it has a nice range of gifts for the home, candles, bath products and accessories.

Isn't this display so cute? I was very tempted with the hat boxes, I have been looking around at a few lately.

I just had to take a photo of this display! There were so many things I could of brought home with me...... Mum treated herself to some candles from just around the corner from this display they were not Yankee Candles! Which is our first choice, but from the 'colonial' range, mum bought Mango.

They also sell gorgeous homemade jams and curds, which we have enjoyed in the past! I just love the little jars. We love the fact they also sell old fashioned boiled sweets like rhubarb and custard, pear drops, and humbugs!

We took a wonder around the 'garden' section too, mum was looking for a garden hoe and I was after a good broom, an early (Halloween Witches Broom) we didn't get either, but I came away with some 'baby bear' pumpkin seeds, (I am getting into Halloween early!) and scrumptious fudge, mum also bought some pansies for her garden.

I also bought some long needed paint brushes from the craft section, as I am hoping to paint something soon, they were even on offer how could I resist! another thing added to my 'to do' list.

We came home had a cup of tea and talked of our plans for the garden, the home, projects and ideas............. such a wonderful day.

I hope you enjoyed a visit around our garden centre and our time there, have a lovely week

Bye for now

I am back! With lots of changes....

Hello wonderful blogging friends! Oh how I have missed you..........
Lots has happened in my time away, I am now a proud owner of a laptop! Hurray, I have wanted one for such a long time, technology changes so fast I was never sure when to jump in. I spent many hours trying to decide the best one for my needs, then I saw an offer at comet with everything I wanted................So now I have one and couldn't be happier, no more aching back or uncomfortable chairs! and hello favourite sofa! And its faster than the PC so I can visit you all quicker! ha,ha
its an acer Aspire 5920G
Now onto more good news................. I passed my driving test! On the 29th April. After many years of lessons then stopping, changing driver instructors, swapping from a manual to a automatic car, life getting in the way and two cancelled tests(they cancelled them) and 3 failed ones, I finally passed! I am now sharing my mums Toyota surf land rover type vehicle..........a bit of a change in size from the learners tiny corsa! But loving every minute........................... Soon I will be off round those car boots and antique shops, now I just need a map!

'Change is as good as a rest'

Who might this be? Me...... Yes I have had a hair cut, I used to wear my hair like this till I just let it grow and didn't notice how un-styled it was. So back to the cut I like and I hope suits are a few pics of me, I was playing with the camera, click click click, you know how it goes...................... or is that just me?

'Ray of Sunshine'

On the day of the driving test I was so nervous, but look what arrived in the post that very morning! A present for me, from my dear blogging friend Linda at 'Somewhere in Time'. I can not express how nice it was to receive this on that morning, a little ray of sunshine......... I can not wait to start on it and the subject matter is perfect, (the seeds are growing, ill update later). Thank you again my sweet friend xxxxx

Ill leave you now, as I go off and get a nice cup of tea and enjoy the lovely sunshine we are having here in the uk at the moment, I am currently listening to the soundtrack from the movie Practical magic, has anyone seen it? I saw it many year ago and recently re watched it........ the songs are wonderful and perfect for warm days like these...............
Bye for now,
