There's still more work to be done at the end of the garden- probably another tonne of topsoil to fill the border (and the tree stump hole) before I can finish planting up the border. My last remaining raspberries can finally move from their containers on the patio to join the rest of the raspberry bushes at the end wall. I'm hoping for enough to make a batch of home grown raspberry jelly this year.
Knitting wise, I have done very little as my time has been devoted to the garden. I still have to finish Harry Hill's knitted character for Moira and sew up my Woolsack cushion so it can be posted off. Only then will I start a new project...strangely it will most likely be a hot water bottle cover for the flower show in July! I have just bought some lovely material to make Jubilee bunting which will hopefully be a fairly simple and quick project to make. Once it's done, it will be coming out for every occasion and celebration we have!
Even my reading has been pretty quiet as I recover from the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trilogy. I'm still poldding with 'Mrs Dalloway' although I am beginning to lose the will to live with it, so am reading another chick lit by Trisha Ashley 'Wedding Tiers' before I get stuck into 'The Report' by Jessica Francis Kane.
Finally, it was Chris' birthday last weekend, so I gave him the day off from gardening to celebrate. We went to Cheddar and had a lovely pub lunch.
