Discovering a Victorian Patio Underneath the Weeds last Saturday was a wonderful find! Freddy’s Mum and Dad popped around to see us, which was so lovely as I hadn’t seen them for a while, they bought all their tools for the Garden…to get cracking on with the work to bring it back to life!
So we all got to work, weeding the garden…well you know what gardening is like…very hard work…and Fred’s dad, pictured above and below was such a great help, we couldn’t of done it without him, he really got stuck into the job in hand and put me to shame with the speed and ease that he was getting those weeds out!….Thanks so much Big Fred xx
Now also home for Easter was our darling son Daz, he came home from University, and seemed to be in the same pattern as he is at Uni, he is up all night on the computer! insisting that he is NOT playing WOW (World of Warcraft!!!) (how many of you have kids and hubby’s addicted to war games? then you can sympathsize!) and then slept all day…being in a totally grouchy mood, when you tried to speak to him!!…..RIGHT!! PAYBACK TIME!
This is him lying in bed, while Fred’s Mum and Dad – both in their 60’s and Me in my 40’s, got to work….clearing the garden of debri and digging the bricks with our trowels…Fred’s Dad, also called Fred, we’ll call him Big Fred, was marvelous, he was an expert at it and also found behind the trees in the garden a lovely old picket fence…which at the moment, he is making some fence posts for us, so that we can section off this lovely victorian patio…
Here I am…working hard and collecting dead wood from the borders….
Meanwhile, Daz slept on….and on….and on…..!
He has always been one of those children, that takes forever putting his shoes on to help you get the shopping in and then by the time you have finished the job, he is ready to start…and then of course it is too late…..! The only time he did appear….is when we all sat down knackered to have something to eat and drink!! Typical!! LOL!
Heres a few pictures of the lovely blossom and daisies appearing in the garden…I am so proud of my little garden….its such a treat to be out there and especially now the weather is getting better!
…And this is the finished patio area…we call this our Nook, it was so worth the effort, and looks so lovely…I’ll keep you posted, as to how the new picket fence looks…and a big Thank you to Bridget and Big Fred…I really do not know what I would of done without them, so a big XkissX to you both.
Speak to you all soon chicks….I hope you are having a lovely weekend xx
