…. So here follows my series of 12 photographs taken throughout today, the 12th of June, 2011….
Gosh-I cannot believe that it is exactly a whole year since my Brother’s wedding to the lovely Dr Sarah. You can track back to that wonderful day and weekend, here.
This past month since May 12th has been warm, dry and exciting in the garden. All our veggies are doing really well with many of them now formed and the rest are in flower. All the roses are in bloom, and as we have not yet had the predicted hose pipe ban, I am still able to run the irrigation and water the lawns. Anna-Bell continues to flourish and brings us more love than we could ever comprehend. She is now 10 months old! Half term came and went and I am now 6 weeks away from the summer break. The long upwards slog!
It’s nice that with today being a Sunday, I am able to go to visit my Parents with AB-sadly Julian is working a late shift, so it’ll just be the two of us driving over to Elbury. I’m having tea there so am taking her dinner with me! However, annoyingly, it is pouring with rain!
Anyway, enjoy my day!
1 ) 6.45am AB and I went out to a cloudy morning spitting with rain. Our lawn is long, the gardener was due at 5pm yesterday but it rained in our slot so he didn’t come!
2 ) 8am I made AB her breakfast. Chicken, rice and kibble and we tried her with some mushy peas for the first time.
3 ) 8.20am I went through the two heavy bags of yesterday’s newspapers. J brings them home from work. I am something of a newspaper-a-holic–always have been. We get them all, every day and have a lot of recycling at the end of the week!
4 ) 10.30am I had to do some mending. AB dismembered the legs off Ducky, an arm and a leg off Teddy and ripped through Donkey’s neck with her piranha teeth!
5 ) 11am Sadly no walk today-pouring rain across the south of England……((and AB has now chewed the eyes off her Ducky so out comes the mending basket again!))
6 ) 1.00pm Packed up Julian’s dinner for his evening shift at work-I made us fish and chips today! And we found out doglet likes those mushy peas!
7 ) 3.15pm Arrived at Elbury to visit my Parents. Mum made me GF scones with lime curd and a lovely cup of Lady Grey tea.
8 ) 4.00pm Doglet was quite happy playing inside, and settled in with one of her new raw hide chews, on the warm rug.
9 ) 4.45pm Took AB round the garden before tea and took a few photos whilst we were out there in the wet…..
10 ) Mum’s little wildlife pond-complete with Newts and water lilies.
11 ) The Elbury garden.
12 ) 5.30pm My high tea. Smoked trout. Yummy!
((8.35pm: AB and I are home now-the Canadian Grand Prix is still waiting to be restarted))
Hope you’ve enjoyed my diary day, 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month.
