Roses are done. Woo Hoo.
G'day. I feel as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders now that all the roses have been pruned. I finished the last of them yesterday, all I can say is Yippee!!! Today, there is a bit of weeding to be done and just a general tidy up. Hubby was on the ride on mower yesterday, a job that used to be mine, but he has for some strange reason, over the last few months taking a liking to doing it. After all the years we have been here and all the mowing I have done with it, hubby now wants to steal my thunder. Though to be honest, I will not fight him for the mower, it takes a couple of hours to do all the mowing here and there are plenty of other things that need my attention at the moment. I just hope that that he will do the whipper snipping as well, that was another of my duties and one that I preferred to do as hubby never managed to get it quite right and yes, that's being picky, but I don't care, this is my blog and I get to choose what I write :)
The carpet in our new home goes in this coming Thursday, so we will be eager to see what it looks like, we are also arranging to meet with a couple of drape and curtain companies over a few days next week to have a look at some samples and hopefully get that all organized as well, so it's all happening here.
The bear in the picture is Niamh. I finished her yesterday afternoon. She is only nine inches high and is one of my favourite bears. This one is for me to keep and I will find a special place for her in our new home.I have made a few as gifts and she always proves to be popular. I think it's the nappie and singlet that add to her charm. Of course, hubby said "not another bear, haven't you made enough of them and where is this one going to go? I hope your giving it away ?" I just smiled and reminded him about a certain classic car we picked up the other weekend and asked him was he going to give that away. That shut him up, lol. Take care. Liz...
