    Mine is definitely still a WIP but I'm closer than I was a few months ago :j Who knows, by the end of the year I might have it within reach *crosses fingers*

    I didn't mean it to be all doom and gloom. We all know that sometimes there are rough patches - it's those that make us appreciate the good times! I can try and change it if everyone thinks it should be a more upbeat title?

    We all say the nightmare thing sometimes. Me especially. :o But then, sometimes it is. :(

    Maybe something like".....Not All Roses Round The Door." might convey the same sort of message, but in a less full-on way. :)

    So am I :D, I feel so lucky to have been part of this group and adventure from the very beginning!

    CTC Those piglets are gorgeous!

    The rain is teeming down today and our front lawn appears to be turning into a bit of a wildflower meadow :o I had hoped to cut it today however it will have to be lush and tall for a bit longer.

    Last week we went to my favourite local gardens, it is quite a small area however they have divided it beautifully into different sections with very varied planting that all seems to tie together. They do a number of talks throughout the year and I think I will try to pop along to some to get some inspiration.

    I have made a small start on the savings fund and am determined to keep on track. We have earmarked a few pieces to sell and I am hugely cutting back the food bills which should help. Limited time means exploring other things is unlikely we will just have to make what we already have work harder for us ;) Not sure if it is just me but I always find the summer a good time to save so I am hoping to make good head way between now and Oct.

    Due to have a bit more time soon and I am determined to get the garden sorted (where have we heard that one before :rotfl:)

    Do we get a telegram from the Queen when we reach 30,000 posts? Or Martin Lewis?!

    Nothing but wind and rain here at the moment.

    My twins are "performing" in Puss in Boots at Theatr Mwldan tonight for the local dance troupe. That should be interesting...

    Hehe, I really must change my avatar.....
