I love Spring!

Thank you so much for your kind messages of congratulations on our bit of news, it's still sinking in, time seems to have frozen and is now dragging on very slowly, but trying to find ways of distracting myself from over analysing every last twinge and ache. I'm feeling extremely rough, exhausted and nauseous, so hoping that's a good sign all is growing nicely.

I am off from work today yet the sun isn't shining so am taking it is an ideal day to get cracking on with potty training, yes I must be mad!

As you can see the sunflowers are growing nicely, we have a couple on this plantpot which is GS's own little pot he is tending to with a little help, and we have tray also which is overflowing, it must have at least 20 seedlings in! I think i'll give them a bit longer yet before planting them out just in case the frosts keep coming.

The garden is gradually taking shape, we've bought a few more plants including a varigated Hebe, a honeysuckle for my trellis, some black grass and summer heathers. I also got several spring bulbs for the garden from GS (& Mr G.T) for Mothering Sunday including hyacinths, tulips and daffodils, so my pots are bountiful with Spring goodies! Sadly the money we were putting to one side to get the decking started had to be spent when the oven suddenly went pop, but hopefully if we knuckle down we can get the savings started up again.


  1. Oh the thought of potty training when ill just urgggg is all I can say.

    I suffered with HyperEmysis though both pregnancies so know how you feel

  2. Good luck with the potty training. That was one life experience we didn't have to deal with!
    So glad to hear all is well, apart from the sickness!

  3. Glad you are well - sickness is supposed to be a good sign, I believe. There has to be something good about it!

  4. A big congratlualtions! Hope the sickness is not to bad, but it is a good thing - I found sea sickness bands, lemon in hot water and preggie pops helped. The sunflower seeds are going well, we only planted ours yesterday? x
