Well another busy weekend has been and gone and I am already gearing up for the coming weekend which I have two craft fairs one on Friday and one on Sunday, it is Ben's birthday on Friday and he is wanting a sleepover and on Saturday we have a baby naming ceremony to attend for little Lola.
So lets get back to the weekend just gone, as has been the norm these past few weeks there was no gardening. On Saturday the weather was not that great and I also had to take Ben back up the hospital as his leg had swollen quite a bit and also was a funny looking colour and was quite hot to the touch. However once we had been up there a while waiting to see someone his colouring had returned to normal it was no longer hot however it was still swollen. Once we were finally seen we were advised that this was in fact quite normal and that he still needed to elevate his leg and also he must do exercises and also continue using the crutches for about a week. All of which we were not told when the cast came off and we saw the specialist. So that wasted three hours on Saturday.
The welsh dresser is coming along, it has been sanded, had two coats of primer and three coats of my chosen colour. It needs one more coat and then will need a couple of coats of protective varnish. I'm hoping to have it all done by Thursday evening at the latest. I will post the photos once it has all been finished so you can see the project from start to finish.
I have also been busy crafting and making new items for my stall. I have made some bookmarks and also some fridge magnets and some new bags too. I will have to post photos next time as I seemed to have mislaid my camera cable, the house is in a right pickle at the moment with furniture stacked everywhere as the plasterer arrived today and will be here again tomorrow so we are living in a higgledy piggledy mess!
I cleaned out the coop yesterday and the girls had some time roaming and rummaging around the garden. The raised beds have had a good digging and Octavia likes to get behind the summerhouse where it is not very easy to get her to come out from. They have spent this afternoon huddled up under the coop as it has been wet and miserable, luckily I walked the dogs earlier before the rain came.
I really need to plant out the garlic, hopefully I will get that done this week, and I have forgot the name again I will have to check that and get back to you. I have some wooden crates up on the decking and I am going to plant the garlic in these. As I have mentioned before I really need to get out in the front garden, hopefully I will be able to do that on Wednesday, even if it is raining I will get the job done.
Well that is it from me for today, I need to go and finish off the pie we are having for dinner tonight, minced beef and onion pie with lashing of gravy, mash and peas.
Finally I would like to say a big hello and welcome to my new follower, I hope you enjoy your visits. Until next time x
