Charting the progress on my allotment in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Sunday, 15 April 2012
I hope everyone's thoroughly enjoyed the Easter break, I know I have. The schools are back tomorrow, so we're a hive of activity in our house getting bags packed and uniforms at the ready.
I was hoping to get lots of things done at the allotment and in the garden over Easter, but as there was lots of DIY activity indoors, this didn't really happen. I've managed to catch up with a few things today, but I'll tell you about those later.
My giveaway for the third anniversary of my blog has come to an end today, so a winner's name has been drawn at random. I'm very happy to say that the first name out of the hat is Anna. Congratulations, Anna. Please let me have the address to send your prize to and I'll get it out as soon as possible. If you haven't yet visited Anna's blog, you'll find it at Green Tapestry. Anna has an allotment as well as growing a wide variety of plants in her garden and photographing visiting birds. Do pay her a visit, you won't be disappointed.
I'd like to thank everyone who took part in my giveaway, and also for all the wonderful (and very flattering) comments you left on my last post. I know that my blog would not be what it's become today without all the comments you leave and support you give so thank you all very much.
I'm a forty eight year old mum of two and I live on the outskirts of Leeds in West Yorkshire. I've been married to Mick for twenty six years and we have a son, Daniel, who's twenty two and a daughter, Eleanor, who's eighteen. I gave up work in 2010 and now have more time to indulge in my hobbies of knitting, crochet and gardening. I hope you enjoy reading and will follow along with my adventures.
