What a Week this has been

THE MESS WE HAVE TO TACKLE










THE TANGERINE TREE BEFORE.


THE TANGERINE TREE AFTER
OK So my week started with a visit to the hospital to finally pick up my test results after the op i had last month to remove cancer cervical cells…the results are……………the lump removed was grade 1 cervical cancer the results after removing the lump are now CANCER FREE, so what a total relief....back to the hospital in 3 months to continue check up and other items that at the moment can't be sorted til the hormones are back to normal. This was Monday.
Tuesday night Olive my dog decided to go searching again for hedgehogs !!! luckily enough we managed to get her back but had to prize the fence up, so we then decided that my garden needs a major make over, and where the fence is all round the back of my garden place flower beds to deter the horrid dog from getting out.
Wednesday i was working and started shopping at the garden centres for suitable plants that will grow into trees and bushes.

THE BACK WHERE THE DOG WAS GETTING OUT, NOW PLANTED WITH LAVANDER AND ROSEMARY AND A LITTLE WOODEN FENCING.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and today Sunday has been spent trying to turn my 1000 m2 garden into something that looks like a garden, starting from 9 am til 4pm everyday with not only me but my mum her man and even neighbours kids helping out. we are no where near finished but it's looking better...upon which i also sacked my gardener realising that the lazy man hasn't done anything on my land but cut the grass ever few months...well with the economy as it is I'm sure i will not have any problem finding a cheap and reliable gardener, once i have finished doing everything that needs doing. I have taken lots of before and as we get on photos for you also done my pots on my terrace. we are having beautiful spring weather which really makes you smile and you do enjoy doing things like this. I also planted a delightful peach tree...and thinking about starting a veggie garden. At this moment in time my body doesn't belong to me....lol...

MY PEACH TREE

THE BACK GARDEN WHERE I'VE PLANTED FLOWERS
I will be continuing throughout next week and my friend is coming over to help cut the big tall trees down with a chain saw...also my kids are on half term for a week, so hopefully the weather will stay nice and the fresh air will do them good.

MY TERRACE
As for my SAL yes after all the above i have managed to keep on top of that too....have a few major issues with it as i had added extra stitches on the door so had a lot of unpicking to do and i also did not like the back stitch colour around the shop door so had to redo all that in a darker colour. but really pleased with what i have achieved.
