Friday Smiles

Hi's been a topsy turvy week for me - but plenty to make me happy. First off I was thinking that as hubby was away working I would get to spend some time in the craftavan - I did, result just one card (not counting the one I made late yesterday - post following).
 I did play in my garden though - I like the early mornings about 6am, everything is fresh and the soil easy to dig... so I finished this side fence garden, hubby had got me a trailer load of garden soil last weekend, and topped that with some sugar cane mulch. So with that all in place I reaped the excess from other overgrown parts of the garden - that purple and green plant makes great borders, then divided my bromeliads and spaced them. The crotons will come along now with some care and water and provide nice shade for these as the sun takes a more overhead path.
I'm really smiling with the finished bed AND all the lilies along the back fence are beginning to make a lovely show
Here's little miss Sophie - I unexpectedly spent the day helping DD with emptying her cupboards as the pest man was in to give the place a treatment and they only gave them 2 hours notice that they needed access to the cupboards.......SO we had a huge empty, tidy out and cleaning day - but we're grateful it's all done now as DD has less than 8 weeks till no 2 baby is due.  Sophie was helping here while we re-stacked the linen cupboard - nice pillow and blanket to take a rest on the lounge floor.
That's all for this week, I'm off to spend the day with my friend Vikki to do some serious stamping - and to hear all about their wonderful holiday in Europe. Pop over to Annies blog and join in with your happy moments.  Enjoy your weekend
