..How does your garden grow???..

Well apparently ... quite well!! The rain has helped keep everything ticking along, and my garden with it's "no shade" policy is trapping every bit of sun that we do get.... so everything is coming along beautifully!

In all honesty that's about all I have to show you for now, it's been raining almost incessantly all week so I've been busy tidying up some stuff here before starting work on Monday..... now all I have to do is some ironing (I can hear my mother laughing from here!!).
We're having the most amazing thunder storm here at the moment...... they make my head hurt so much, but I love them....... there's hardly anything better than a summer storm!

Apparently, I have a job!!

I start on Monday for three mornings a week!!!

I wasn't looking for a job (well come on that's not a surprise is it?) but an old friend phoned me saying that a local company were looking for someone to do their books and admin work and were basically struggling to keep up with all the office paperwork..... well that's what I'm good at!!!! so a few phone calls were made and there you have it - I'm employed!!

To be honest I'm not sure how I feel about it (how ungrateful is that!!) It's been a long time since I've had to fit in with the discipline of an office..... and I'll miss Spot loads!! But I think it'll be good for me for a while, and it's only for a three month trial, so I don't suppose it'll kill me!!!

Mind you I have now realised I have no decent clothes (can you turn up for your first day at work wearing what you walked the dog in last week??) and no shoes... thank God for eBay is all I can say!!!!! I have a bid on just about every size 10 blouse that is listed at the moment!!!! LOL! Going back to work is going to cost me a fortune!

Onto other things:- Lookie what I have finished....

Not a great photo as I had to turn off the flash to take the picture in the mirror, and then I couldn't hold the camera still enough. But you get the gist!!! It's not properly blocked, because I finished it, and then put it on and it hasn't come off since - it's a lovely colour, and just the right kind of cardi for this slight breeze we seem to still have in the air (I'm not complaining, I'd much rather a chill than hot and sultry any day)

In other news, the veggies are going great guns, and I had my first helping of runner beans at the weekend (with lamb chops and jersey royal potatoes, perfect) they were delicious. The corn has also started sprouting cobs (so sweet to look at) and something is eating my strawberries as soon as they ripen (I did catch Spot with one, but I don't think she's responsible for all of them disappearing!) There will be courgettes at the weekend too, just need a couple more days!

Well that's us all caught up folks. Have a good week.
