The New Digs!

Today i moved out of a shared property and into a flat on my own. i'm back in a road i used to live in, but this time at the entrance rather than the very end of the road. this time my home only has 2 numbers in it, whereas before it was in the 300's!. i walked out to the supermarket once all my ''treasures'' were inside, and it tool 3 minutes of painful walking!. and thats to the supermarket across the road. there is also one on this side of the road, that my living room window overlooks....well its carpark and trees!. that 3 mins was a painful waddle after all the box lugging i did!. i had come home yesterday on the new journey route and it took 45mins!, it used to take my 1.5hrs!. havent done the morning trip yet, so dont know if its also 45mins, or a bit longer....tuesday i will find out. i wont put up any photos just yet, as it currently looks like a storage facility!. i've got a week off before the Jubilee weekend, and i'll play house then and make it all pretty and homely!. so, new digs, new chapter!. looking forward to it!.

more crazy cat lady pics!.

the other day i shared this pic i found on pinterest
it makes me giggle everytime i look at can see who the trouble makers are going to be!. now this evening i have found the next installment -
again, via pinterest!.

End of an era.

This evening i gave away all my remaining gardening equipment and berry canes to a well deserved schoold gardening project. While i feel excited about moving and the relief it will bring me, i feel very sad to say goodbye to that stuff. My beloved boysenberry that i brought even before i had the keys to the allotment and to me is a little reminder of home as we love boysenberry flavoured things - esp ice cream!. i couldnt keep them as i have no outdoor space where i am moving to, so its silly to be sad!. i have kept the blueberry and will see if it will produce berries for me on a sunny windowsill....i just have to make sure the bees can get to it to pollinate it!. this morning i took a few snaps to remind me of them!.
all 6 pots - the 4 raspberries on the right, the blackcurrent at the front left and the boysenberry behind it. all if them have thrived well in the pots and several have begun to set flowers, so i hope the children look after them!. oh well!, onwards and upwards as they say.

I'm going ''home''........

No Ms Bright, you do not need to inform Border Control, i am not leaving the country, rather, i am moving back into the road i used to live in for 3 yrs!. I'm giddy with excitement!!. by the 26th of May i will be out of here, in there and so much weight will be lifted off my shoulders....i cant wait!. I can, however, wait for the packing of the crap!. Boy!!, i have to sort my 'treasures' out!.
