Mocking birds,mice,men and ...then there's Duffy!!!! ;-)


It's a bit of a manic time for me at the moment! Very manic!

Not only have I had an awful lot of (you'll understand if you have GCSEs going on in your house right now) Mocking Birds, Mice ... and Men... like Seamus Heaney and Simon Armitage...plus those famous women Gillian Clarke and Carol Ann Duffy ...(..ah 'Duffy'...now there's a name we won't forget in a hurry!! LOL! ), I've been beavering like mad to get ready for the incredible, amazing, fantastic...drum roll please...

V&H Fair!

Saturday, Chipping Sodbury Town Hall...Please come
and say hello to me!

***

All of this has meant that something has had to give. Well, two things really!

Firstly, my garden, which I hope to give more time to next week, although I did manage to get into the greenhouse and sow some seeds on Sunday.
Secondly, my blogging..to be more accurate, visiting all the wondeful blogs I love to visit !
I have been sadly lacking just lately.
I apologise. I simply have not had the time .


However, I did take my iphone for a quick walk around
my Mum and Dad's garden this morning.

Their garden is beautiful at this time of the
year!
So much colour!

So here goes , just for you!














I'll be back on Sunday, hopefully with loads of fab photos from the weekend.
Tomorrow, we are travelling to Chipping Sodbury via one or two rather gorgeous places, so there will be plenty for me to tell you about, next week.

Hope you have a lovely long weekend, whatever you do!

What a garden, Sal, how I wish ours was like that rather than an untamed jungle! Thanks so much for the good wishes whilst we were "stranded". I've had an awfully busy week, I'm at the "pretend stall" stage now and still making things in between. nearly there. ahhh.
Look forward to seeing you both on saturday.

Hae a wonderful time at the Fair, Sal, and I hope all the old s*ds from Chipping S*dbury put their hands in their pockets and buy all your goodies!
I wonder what gorgeous places you are visiting?
And what a delightful garden ...
Re 'Duffy' ... I now refer to him as Gordon the Gaffe-r!

Hi Sal.. probably too late to wish you bon voyage.. but there will be every opportunity to speak to you tomorrow as we are next door to each other. Enjoy your rural rambles today and hope you can follow the sun.
Your parent's garden looks beautiful.. must be that wonderful Devon soil.. and green fingers of course.

Can't make this fair, but I shall think of you! :O) Hope you sell loads!

Lace hearts said...

I hope the fair goes brilliantly for you. I so wish I could make it. One day... it's just a little bit too far for me. I bet your stuff looks fabulous. Can't wait for pictures.

Recycling, I did Seamus Heaney, and To kill a mockigbird amongst others for my "O"levels - not telling you when though!!! I didn't know they were on the syllabus as when I ask my GCSE angel he only ever replies "can't remember"!
Oh well it will all be over in a few weeks, I wonder when mine will start to revise?
Have a lovely day at V&H,
Tracey
