Have you all had a good Bank Holiday? I hope so.
Life in the "House of Hearts" as been productive .. .. .. but sadly not all of it was in the craft department .. .. .. hence the lack of a post yesterday. The only crafting I have done has been for orders which I cannot share (sorry).
The garden has taken up a good deal of our time but we have made some good headway. The area I started to clear at the beginning of last week is finally finished and we have planted our runner beans and courgette plant.
We also tracked down some "sensibly priced" plants for the hanging baskets and pots and these are all planted up and watered in now too.
The lawns are cut and the greenhouse is half decent. I have been given a cucumber plant so now need to learn about looking after this.
Still lots more to do in the garden but at least we can see where we have been .. .. .. and judging by our aching knees and backs it has been a pretty good "work out" for us too.
I just "had" to make a card today though as I was starting to get withdrawal symptoms but whilst gardening I kept looking at my hands and wondering how I would ever be able to handle wedding stationery ever again!!!! But ten minutes of scrubbing with a nail brush sorted them out eventually LOL!!!

So that is me for today. A quick bit of work on an order and then we are rounding the break of with a Chinese takeaway tonight .. .. .. yummy!!!!!
Thank you for calling by - have a good evening and see you again tomorrow with the launch of a new Get Funky! Challenge.
