Today........

It is hot.......like....... t shirts and shorts hot.......I'm not wearing shorts......on Tuesday I still needed a jacket.....how would I know that by today I should have got my shorts down from in the roof??!! And ....sadly....I wouldn't look like this in them either!!

I used my brand new....best ever Mothers Day present........a potting table

 and planted my sweet pea seeds in their little toilet roll holders.........and my sunflower seeds......a garden needs sunflowers
I met my DDs in town for lunch......it's rare we all have the same day off work.......we ate at Cafe des Artes......a delightful cafe/restaurant/art gallery  which is a Social Enterprise with the aim of  providing people with autism an opportunity to undertake work-based learning and to showcase and sell their art work.....and the food is delicious.

   
 I bought 4 Body Shop shower gels for £6.......they normally cost this much  each.......which is why I hardly ever buy them....even though I love them.The question now is......do I put them in the bathroom and share......or tuck them away 'just for me'??????
Today has been a lovely day........I hope yours has too.

Hey, you didn't ask before featuring a picture of me today! LOL!
It does sound like a lovely day. We thought about planting last weekend but will probably wait until the end of the month. We don't germinate - simply buy small plants instead.

Sounds like it WAS a lovely day Jacky...funnily enough I just bought a bunch of sunflowers for the house today-I DO like sunflowers!

Sweet peas and daisies are my favorite flowers, but I never thought to use a toilet paper roll for the seeds. Thanks!

Wow, such a clever idea to use a toilet roll for the seeds - biodegradable too.

What a lovely lot of things to do in a day! The cafe looks very smart - hope you felt cherished and energised!

So glad you had a lovely day. The sun shone here and I bought some shorts but after trying them on decided to wait a while before venturing out in them!

I'm so envious of your gorgeous potting table. Are those the sunflowers and sweet peas that came with Gardener's World Magazine Jackie. I put mine in toilet roll pots today too. Great minds think alike eh. It does sound like you had a lovely day. Lx

I vote for saving the bath products all to yourself! I totally get the limited opportunities and desire to be a teeny bit selfish!

Donna said...

I love that potting table!

Amy said...

I dunno Jacky, I can picture you in a cute little pair of hotpants! If Rinda doesn't get to them first that is! ;-)

Glad you had the opportunity to luch out with the girls - sounds like a great place!
