I was so lucky to win a prize for commenting on A Trip Down Memory Lane on the recent bloghop on UKS. I was amazed to see my name as one of the winners! It arrived this morning and it's full of beautiful papers from BoBunny and Websters, plus ribbons and stickers. The papers have lovely delicate designs.
The other delicate thing around is the blue lobelia in all the hanging baskets. It is doing amazingly well this year due to all the rain!!! This is one of the red, white and blue baskets that didn't quite make it in time for the Jubilee!
The worst broken thing in our house is the kitchen ceiling. A portion had to be taken down to allow access to the damage done by the old bathroom suite. It's been like this for a lot longer than it should have been- but we've had more pressing emergencies including having to replace the car last year. The ceiling isn't one of those exciting jobs that you ooh and ahh over- so unfortunately it keeps finding itself moving the wrong way on the very long TBR list. It is now one of our 'urgent' items on the list. Only thing is once it's done - the kitchen makeover can't be ignored!
Past it's Prime- the hydrangea is definately past it's prime now- it was a blue one when we bought it. We used the wrong soil- so it's now a pink one!!!!!! Poor thing has had a complete transformation.
The Olympic tickets arrived this morning- thankfully. I was envisioning seeing us having to travel down from Cornwall in order to collect the tickets on the way to London! I don't think we are going to have time to go up the Orbit tower that I have tickets before - as it sounds as though the airport security is going to take quite a long time to go through and the venue is at least a 15 minute walk from the closest station.
