Back after a break (or not!)

We were so insanely busy through September, that neither the garden nor plot had much attention. We had three weekend trips away- Croydon, (to visit in-laws) Richmond to see The Police play Twickenham and visit the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.

Then it was back to London for the day on my birthday, to the Museum of Gardening History and lunch at Konstam at The Prince Albert in Kings Cross.

The next weekend we hosted a family BBQ for 15 and spent the next day clearing up and recovering! I took my sisters, mum and nieces over to my plot to see where the sweetcorn they’d just eaten was grown.

The builder started on levelling the patio last week. (pictures of the transformation will follow) We left him to it and headed to Swanage in Dorset for 4 days for a well derserved break!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Tuesday 11th September was my XXth birthday.
He Who Doesn't Dig made me a wicked Barbapapa cake!

Its a very good likeness of the one he bought me in Brussels on our 1st anniversary back in July.
