Plan? What plan??



If you're a long time reader you'll know since I started this blog I've had many plans.  Over the years they've had to change and adapt to stuff totally outwith my control.  Once again I've had to make some life changes and the plan going forward is that I won't be selling this house after all.  I'll be living here indefinitely.  That's no hardship, as I've really grown to love this house and it's location.  With OH's help I can turn the house into a home that really reflects me and my personality 😊


I've spent some time tidying up my garden,  The chickens have had total free range but I've put up a barrier so they're now confined to free ranging in one main area.  I put some netting over the old polytunnel frame to make a fruit garden inside.  I have raspberries (red and yellow ones), gooseberries, red currants, blackcurrants and rhubarb.  I've moved my 2 cordon apple trees and have planted up some pots with a few veggies.  There's also a pear tree right next to the tunnel.


This area was completely trashed by the chickens.  Can you see what it should be??


It's a water feature!  The previous owners installed it but I've never used it.  I tidied it and to my surprise it still works!


My purple hair is now fading into pink/lilac/blue and silver.  One of my kids said I had unicorn hair!! 😄  I rather like that description!

Oh, and I'm giving up making plans.  I'm just going to go with the flow.

  1. Don't know if you are religious, but a favorite saying of mine is, "If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans." Sounds like you're moving forward and going to be successful at whatever comes your way.

    1. Thanks. Not religious but I do like the sentiment in that saying :-)

  2. I make lots of plans but very few come to fruition - usually because they involve a big investment.

    1. I think making a plan makes me feel I'm in control. But there are some things we have no control over especially if they involve other people. Lesson learned!

    1. Thanks! I get loads of people asking me how I achieve the look but it's just the way my weird hair reacts! xxx

  4. You've definitely got the right attitude here, and I also like that kid and his or her description, your colors are very nice.

  5. I love a plan, but in my garden I love to see how I feel on the day and see what the results are.

    1. I remember when I moved in here I had a definite plan for the front and back gardens. But the garden had it's own plans!! Lol!

  6. Plans rarely work for me too. I hope the reason you're not moving is not too upsetting but I think now that you've done all your work in the house you'll probably enjoying staying there a bit longer anyway. Your garden is coming along and will certainly keep you busy. 7 year olds - you canny whack them lol!!

    1. Thank you for reading between the lines :-) Not too upsetting, just OH and I have decided we rather like our lives the way they are just now. It's unconventional but works for us!

      And yep, 7yos keep you grounded!!
