I hope you have all had a nice weekend?
We had a pretty quiet one (as usual!!) on Friday I had to give in and go into Portsmouth (I hate going into Portsmouth!!) to get my eyebrows threaded as I was beginning to look like Dennis Healey!!
There is a lovely Indian lady in Debenhams who does it and she is fabulous, the only person who can ever make my pale caterpillars look like beautiful arches worthy of any celeb!!
Whilst I was there I naturally had to pop into Fabricland and I made a couple of purchases:
The red t-shirting is to make another maxi-dress and I also got these to make skirts:
You'd think at 38 I'd be past ice-cream and skull prints wouldn't you? But I'm not. I still wear my hair in pigtails too....
On Saturday we went to Petersfield and had a mooch around the charity shops and the "Smelly Book Shop" - this book shop is a rabbit warren of floor to ceiling bookcases with all manner of "smelly books". I was delighted to come around a corner and find my boys:
I had to take a picture with my phone as I was so pleased to find them as absorbed as I was - in fact it was Hubby who decided he'd had enough first!!
We had dinner with old friends on Saturday night which is always really good fun and then I spent much of Sunday sewing as Hubby was out racing his radio controlled cars.
Today I had a little mooch around the garden.
The clematis is starting to flower:
Isn't it a gorgeous colour? Mother-In-Law bought it for us last year, she also got us this aquilegia:
Which has self-seeded and produced two of these:
Isn't that amazing? I love "free" plants.
This one was a cutting from MIL as well, not sure what it is (I'm rubbish) but it's pretty AND pink:
As you can see we go for the wildlife look in our flowerbed - plant it and let it do-it's-thing - I'm not one for trimmed and formal which is just as well with Hubby's attitude to lawnmowing!!:
What did you get up to this weekend?
PS Don't forget the giveaway - there are only a few entries so far which is a bit disappointing for me but good for you as you have a good chance of winning!!
