Towing the line

Hello! I hope those of you with small members of your family have had a great half term, we did! I took some pics of our break on t'other camera which means I will have to sneak onto Simon's computer to download them and post them here, which I will try to do in the very near future. Meanwhile my City and Guilds course has seen my first unit of work passed through internal verification - what a relief. I enjoyed making lots of lovely collages= worth renewing Simon's National Geographic subscription just so I can cut them up! I enjoyed producing the odd sketch with which I was relatively happy.
I enjoyed less the annotating, labelling, titling, indexing. I don't know why, I am a fairly ordered person generally but for me somehow creating and ordering don't mix. Anyway, like I say, signed off-done!

Also signed off and done is our little garden. We are so pleased with it and when the planting takes hold it will be perfect. I made lots of lists of plants I wanted whilst watching Chelsea, but we will have to add them season by season as some are a bit special.
Here the water feature is turned off as it needs a tiny bit of sealing and needs to be dry, but it forms a sheet of water into the pond which I hope will be home to some fish in the not too distant. There is lighting along the wall for evening sitting out, plenty of seating for said sitting. I have a herb garden and a couple of spots for some Dorset sculptures. All in all well worth the mess and disruption- a bit like the kids!!

Gorgeous garden... all that titling, indexing and such... you needed a curator to do that!
