I have wanted to join in with the lovely Amy's Five on Friday for a while now, but I'm never ready in time! Here I am at last! For more details please link to Amy via the button on the right of the screen.
How was your week? We've had a funny couple of weeks as we have had a team of bathroom renovators, including a decorator, plasterer, tiler and carpenter working here over the last fortnight, removing our old bath, sink, toilet and the wall which had separated them and constructing a wonderful new shower room. It's all going extremely well but it's impossible to do anything else when part of the house is out of bounds!
We are so pleased we had the forethought to purchase and install a chemical camping loo in our garden shed, as it would have been exceedingly difficult without it. It has been so convenient for our use during the day, as we both enjoy drinking lots of tea. The builders are good enough to ensure we have an indoor working loo every evening, albeit we have to use a bucket and a standpipe to flush it.
However, enough of that, here are a few pictures I have been wanting to show you but haven't been able to spend time uploading them onto our computer as it was sitting at the computer which bought on my last bout of back trouble.
1. Not one of mine, dh took this at 4.30am when our cat decided someone else should be awake in addition to her! Bless, she means well.
2. We like to think we have a wild life garden (although some people would say it looks unkempt and overgrown) and here are a few of our simple country style flowers which dh took for me when I was unable to walk into the garden recently.
|If you look carefully you will find there are a couple of bees gathering|
nectar from the flowers in this photo.
|Erysimum, these are related to wallflowers|
|The birthday rose my mum bought me a couple of years ago.|
This is the best bloom it has had to date!
4. And its been a good year for the roses, which are looking so pretty.
|The birthday rose again.|
5. I just had to show you our wild strawberries, they are growing very well again this year and despite being tiny they are so very tasty!
Well, that's my first Five on Friday! Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you again.
I trust you have had a lovely week and wish you an enjoyable weekend. Bye for now, and next time there will definitely be crafting here, I promise!
