Saturday 4th August

Husband went out this morning on a mission. I did suggest reading my book on how to construct a pond but he waved that off. He obviously knows best! I was going to mark out the hole using garden canes and the hose, but he came back with a tin of spray paint! Anybody want a bundle of bamboo and some rubber….listing now on EBay lol

Am absolutely loving small container pond which now has little wriggly bits in it. So have decided to bite the bullet and install proper pond (well…not me personally). Have lovely vision of ambient evenings with dragonflies sparkling in late summer sun, a cold glass of wine in hand and the soft plop and gulp of the goldfish! 7 yo would love it, 10 yo will fall in it. Husband is absolutely thrilled with the prospect of digging big hole in the back garden……

My new vintage purchase arrived today that I had ordered from Etsy.   Had seen them being advertised for a while and took the plunge and ordered them.  They are the biggest pair of tennis knickers I have ever seen!   The description said Medium to Large – these are extra large Lol.  They are 1970’s and have “Let’s Cheat” and “Smart Ass” embroidered on the bum.  Wonder if I can take them into the local dry cleaners to get them altered…
