Growing Sweet Peas

Sweet Peas are my absolute favourite! They are so pretty and the fact that the more you pick them the more they grow is even better. A woman I used to work with used to put jam jars filled with sweet peas on my desk, and it was the most perfect way to start a working day! I have wanted to grow my own for a while but without a greenhouse thought I wasn't able too. Until that is, I spoke to a friendly guy on a flower stall at the weekend who said I could grow them on the kitchen windowsill, and then plant them out in April/May.

So, here are my sweet pea plants growing on the kitchen windowsill:

Crafting for Charity

A while back, I told you I go to a Knit, Stitch & Bitch group at my local pub every fortnight. We are always trying out different projects so that we all get to try out a variety of crafts.

Last year we knitted this huge patchwork blanket which we donated to the East Cheshire Hospice.

Garden Incinerator

After spending a few very boring hours sorting and filing all our paperwork/bills, I was not looking forward to the task of shredding the huge pile of old bills. So, my Partner suggested buying a garden incinerator - what is it with men and fires???
