Good morning blog chums. Hope you are well.
We have had a lovely few days in this neck of the woods. Had a trip round some lovely gardens on an NGS open gardens event with Nesta again yesterday in glorious weather.
It was a bit parky early on so I had put a short sleeved jumper on but then regretted it half way around the gardens when I was sweating more than a turkey at Christmas.
One of the houses also makes excellent homemade cakes so we go there first, reserve our cakes and then return there at the end to have the goodies. The coffee and walnut cake was delicious.
I am still waiting for my exotic tomatoes to arrive, I did chase it up with the grower but there's been a delay due, apparently, to the "Beast from the East". I'm really not sure how Delia Smith can affect tomato growth.
Now, we are back to John's samples and this time the Bee Balm Frame.
Cream, black and purple card
JND Bee Balm Frame die
JND Ribbon Threader die
Purple satin ribbon
As you can see, the frame can be extended by slotting the die in further along your piece of card.
Had a lovely catch up last week with Davey (the hairy Judith Chalmers) who had returned from a trip to Taiwan and Borneo. He had been to see the Orang Utans at Sepilok and thankfully, they let him back out again lol!!!
We re-bonded over my hot tacos and his crispy churros,
Also met up with another friend, Andy, who used to volunteer for me at Barnardos and we have kept in touch. We met up at a Morrison's cafe (very impressive decaff cappucino) and I ended up coming away with 2 beautiful orchids to add to my collection, otherwise known as two more things for the kittens to knock off the window ledge!!!
They are both twin stemmed an only £5 each...................bargain!!!
And as its been a while since I showed some gratuitous kitty shots, here are our little minxes...................................in quieter moments.
Hope this week is kind to you all.
