Just look at the lovely valentine l received from my darling daughter. Love the address on the handmade envelope - To Mum, In the kitchen – says it all really!
Did a wee bit of thrifty shopping this weekend. Just look at my lovely 'new' kettle. While l do like my jolly red kettle which beats like the heart of the kitchen, this old copper job is just gorgeous. Took me ages to clean it up. Being small it boils quickly, makes no noise as base sits well on aga, and it pours like a dream. So thrilled with it. Red kettle now desiding in pantry until l need to make lots of tea or coffee then it will be welcomed back into the kitchen again.
You know my passion for old books, well l scored this lovely old book on British birds. The colour plates are just beautiful and to be honest, it reads far better than the modern counterparts. I am going to keep it on the dresser in the kitchen for handy reference on anything unusual that gets past the buzzard and makes it into the garden.
So those are nice things for the weekend. Now for the nasty – come on, this is me, you just knewe it couldn't all be perfect in the garden…..
Now speaking of gardens. The snow has melted (apart from some wierd half corpses of snowmen littered around) and in its place………………………………………………
molehills 50 bloody molehills all in a space of approx 20 square feet!!!
Okay there have been moles before. In fact l have been using one of those sonic mole repeller things for a while. Just th odd mole hill here and there. Bad enough but not a deadly business. This on the other hand looks like the damn thing has been trying to plough the lawn. You know l might as well just dig about in the 6-10" between each molehill and make a new bed for plants. I have never seen anything like it. What a complete mess.
This makes me think of the old Jasper Carrot sketch when he sits on a revolving stool with a shotgun trying the shoot the little monsters. Boy am l close to that.
What is it with me and wildlife, first the mice and now this. They are conspiring against me this furry army.
So come on, any ideas for getting rid of moles, help, help, help!
Now must remind you about the '10 things you love giveaway', remember it ends on Thursday when l will draw a lucky winner for the gorgeous herb filled heart pillow. Have had some fab comments. So many things l wish l had added to my list, but then l would have a top 100 and it would all go on and on and on……….
