Mud, Mud Glorious Mud 

Oh my it's  muddy around here !!  We haven't had much heavy rainfall, it just seems to have been drizzling constantly for the last few days.  Thankfully last week was drier and brighter than we had expected and we managed to get some work done in the garden.  I don't think we will get much done outside this week as the drizzle is here to stay, but maybe I will get a bit of painting done indoors.  I hope the sun shines wherever you are this week xx

The weather outside is::::

Wet, wet, wet ........ drizzly, dull and chilly .......

As I look outside my window::::

The blossom has arrived ~ at last.

Right now I am::::

Sitting with a cup of hot chocolate at the end of a long day.  I don't think I will finish this post today, my bed is calling, I am very tired.

My simple pleasures::::

Pinterest !!

As I look around the house::::

Washing drying in the dinning room.  Muddy foot and paw prints all over the floors.  Rain streaked windows. Untidy bedrooms....... :o(

On this week's to do list::::

Painting the landing (I didn't start last week, as the weather was drier than expected I spent as much time as I could in the garden)
Sow parsnips and plant peas (we really want to get this done, but can't start until we have sorted out the chicken that live in the garden, they have already started scratching up anything growing in the veg beds)
Eat lots of chocolate.

What's happening in the garden and on the farm this week::::

Last week the weather was better than we expected.  We managed to clear most of the weeds and brambles from around the vegetable patch.  I also cleared our over grown raspberry patch (this needs a lot more work, we need to move and rearrange the raspberry canes).
