My Charity Donations

I have been busy setting up my charity page, it’s not the usual donation type page, it is just me raising money to give to our two local care homes.

The money that is raised doesn’t go towards a cure because I think these people need a good time now and that’s the intent of my donations, to give them days out, things that will keep them occupied like:

  1. flower arranging
  2. days out
  3. money for a Christmas party for them
  4. any other special occasion

Sometimes they go out on little visits to other care homes and have ice cream and cake, there are lots of things that they can do.

So have a look at my charity page where you can read all about what I am doing, you can find it along the top menu or just click right here…

Summer In the Garden

What a lovely day, the sun is shining and there is a gentle breeze, it is glorious.

I am sitting in the garden crocheting a blanket for my mum and I thought I would share my lovely perfumed roses with you.

The plants in the tub are tomatoes, love Tom’s straight from the Bush they taste so good.

Here is the shaded area, there is a fountain right in the corner and the hanging tree is around 30ft high and its branches all sway in the breeze, beautiful.

I am so glad summer is here at last, it felt like we had a long winter.

My Lovely Birthday

Today is my birthday and I have had such a lovely time, my whole family met at my mum’s and we did her garden, it was what I wanted to do.

Mum was laying around on her bed as she had a fall yesterday and her back was aching, so we all took care of her, we left her in bed all snuggy.

We cut the grass and came across a hedgehog hiding under a load of leaves, he had the cutest little face, KJ picked him up and moved him across the garden and he trotted off behind the bushes and the shed.

We cut all the bushes back and trimmed the edges, it looked right nice when we were finished.

I got 2 birthday cakes, a white chocolate cake and a milk chocolate cake, mmm very yummy, I got lots of money, so I will buy myself a little present on my next holiday, looking forward to that.

We were planning our next holiday, four of us will be going and we want to go to Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and New York, there are a lot of places we want to visit in USA, but it takes a while to save up for those holidays, but looking forward to it.

That’s my day it was lovely to be with my whole family, I love them dearly, my birthday is nearly over now, another year older and another year wiser so they say…

Today Was A Burn Out

Well I gave my mum the twiddle muff today and she really liked it and it bought a little smile to her face.

She thought it would look good on her feet as they are always very cold, so on her foot it went and her little toes had the bobble wrapped around it lol.

So these were my aims today:

  • twiddle muff – great success, mum loved it and all of it’s bits and pieces, so that was well worth making and I enjoyed making it so much
  • grass – my jobs today were in the garden, mum’s gardener had health problems and he isn’t coming back so I cut the grass today using a flymo. It was a lovely bright sunny day today, a bit windy but that’s ok, I mowed the back lawn then used the strimmer on the edges all was going well. I started mowing the front lawn then all of a sudden the lawnmower caught fire OMG, there was thick smoke coming from it, so I quickly pulled the plug out and eventually it stopped smoking, we have to buy a new one now.

So apart from the burn out, I really enjoyed today it was lovely…
