It's Mr G's 40th birthday next week so we are feeling a bit old at the moment!! It really is quite scary how as you get older the time seems to go quicker and quicker.
I haven't really got a whole lot to report, been doing a bit of this and that. Went out with my Sis, had a day at a friends and what not.
I am still enjoying my dahlias (I am shamelessly copying Vanessa over at one of my fave blogs Coco Rose Diaries and using the fab Hipstamatic iPhone app for the pics):
It has been my first time growing dahlias and the bulbs (tubers?) cost £1 each from Wilkinsons - I started them on the windowsill and they went out following the last frost and the four plants have given me a jam jar of flowers constantly from July until now!! All for £4!!
So my sweet peas may have let me down this year but my dahlias have made me smile for weeks and weeks.
Another thing that has made me smile is that I managed to persuade Mr G to buy me a fancy schmancy new sewing machine for Christmas, so I am chuffed - although I couldn't persuade him to let me have it early!!
What's been making you smile?
