From my seat

Late afternoon with the sun shining and time for a sit - or rather a snooze! The doors of the garden room are open but pusscats don't want to go for a walk, preferring a warm knee. To my right is DH zzzedding - it was a hard morning walking round the Car Boot Sale.

I'm busy crocheting a pusscat blanket for DD's new kitten.

In front of me is one of the purchases from the CB - a Britannia pub table, minus top. It will soon be painted green to match the other garden furniture and DH will make a new top. (Not today!)

To my left there is a recipe in a magazine for marinaded chops with rice that I fancy making for tea.

Looking up there is the collection of stones and a pusscat hiding basket. They can't fit in underneath now so DH can have the basket if she wants for the new kitten.

To my left is a view of the old school table again with my Singer hand sewing machine proudly on display. My 2012 blue blanket is on the sofa.

Above are the orchids in baskets and pots.


PS The tea was awful. I'll be making up my own concoctions in future!


  1. What a shame about the tea, it looked lovely in the magazine. I hope we're going to get a glimpse of DD's new kitten.

  2. Lovely garden room. What a lucky kitten getting that nice new blanket and a double storey basket!

  3. Lovely pictures. It was a lovely afternoon for a relax

  4. Bliss day except for the tea, I'm a throw things in the pan type of cook.

  5. Hi Mum - good news: you've won the 'Knitting for Tommy' book. Can you email me your address please (my address is on my 'Contact' tab) and I'll post it off to you a.s.a.p. xxx

  6. Isn't it funny how sometimes the photo of a recipe looks good, but when you actually try it at home, it's not at all what you thought? Hello, Mum, I haven't visiting for awhile, but I am back. xxoo
