Not much to post about.

I haven't done any crafting 'cos I've been busy in the garden. It really needed a good tidy. Cleared up some leaves..lots more to come...and deadheaded a few things and cut some other things back. The lawns need cutting but they will have to wait a few more days. Most of this week has seen me shifting soil. My neighbours are digging out a flower bed and paving it and were going to take all the soil to the tip.   Dot (my neighbour) asked if I would like it instead. Yes please! she spent a long time sifting and adding bags of compost to that flower bed a few years ago so I knew it would be good for my front garden. Mine is very stony and very shallow ...can't dig down very deep because of the tree roots...which by the way has been cut down. Well her hubby dug out all the soil and wheelbarrowed it all onto mine. I just had to shovel it onto my very meagre and sorry looking borders. My front garden is starting to look like a garden now. They even gave me a lot of the plants so have been planting those as well. It has tired me out though. Just have to catch up with the housework now...although my sons have played their part doing the essentials and cooking. I'm hoping to have a few days crafting. I really need to think about making a start on Christmas cards if I don't want to be rushing at the last minute. I did manage to finish a piece of cross-stitching that I started for one of my grand-daughters..just needs pressing and framing.

"I am a woman of many moods and they all require chocolate".....this is so me!
