This week I am celebrating:
My husband sorting out and booking our summer holiday. This usually falls to me and is often a bit of a seat of the pants affair as I tend to book villas or cottages privately owned so you're never too sure what to expect (they've actually always been brilliant but you still feel really nervous until you actually arrive and see it for yourself). We are going to Lisbon for the first time and both of the children are able to come too which is truly wonderful now they are this age and No. 1 son is in his first job. So there is a LOT to celebrate!!
Delivery of supplies to build garden planters. We need to get the courtyard looking much nicer than it is and the cost of enough large wooden planters would be exorbitant so we decided to bite the bullet and have a go at making some using decking. Sourcing what we need for the best price has not been easy but today it has finally all arrived! The lorry was too big to come down the drive so I had to help carry it all down to our courtyard with the delivery driver and then store it away in the garage after he left - boy am I glad I have been working my arm muscles recently - 2.4m planks of decking are heavy when you're lifting three at a time and the concrete blocks needed as well literally weigh a tonne (altogether).
Kitten learning to climb DOWN trees. Itty Bitty Kitty (IBK) has recently learnt how to climb up trees but the ladder has had to be brought into active service along with my taller husband to get her down when she gets stuck! Today it seems she has got the hang of coming down - although I wish she'd come down backwards like bears do rather than nose first!
I've had a lovely week with many moments worth celebrating as I hope you have also - let me know what's been happening in your neck of the woods - where are you going on holiday? What are you doing in your garden? What new skills have been learnt by who this week? Go on - you know I'd love to know :)
