Last week when I was telling you all that my daffodils were starting to flower I had several comments to say that yours were still in bud. Well apparently here in Lincolnshire it is now official (as in all the flower growers have said it) that all the daffodils here are opening at least two weeks earlier than normal which is causing the flower growers some concern.
So what else has happened at The Willows and the wider family in the month of February. We have had a further two birthdays with number two turning 23 and daughter turning 20 so for the time being I don't have any teenagers. As you will all know by now young master Rufus has joined our doggie family and so far he appears to be settling in very well. He is a real cutie and an absolute cuddle bum.... He has been to meet Dr. Sue at the Vet's this morning, who is totally in love with Romeo as she did all his surgery last year, and she thinks he's a lovely little dog and quite happy to be his vet whilst Monty and Buster are under Dr. Nigel.
So how did the challenges turn out this month.
My film of the month was The Three faces of Eve which starred Joanne Woodward.
My book from school was my nemesis 'Lord of the Flies'.
|Challenge 3 & 4|
I now have a total of 25 little hats for the Innocence campaign
a further four Poppies completed bringing my total to 12.
Things We Never Say - Sheila O'Flanagan
When it Happens to You - Molly Ringwald
Reconstructing Amelia - Kimberley McCreight - Fiction
and I have managed to complete a further three books from the bookshelf bringing my total to 6 which means I have 7 left to complete by the end of June.
And in between times we have been decorating number 3's bedroom which has been quite undertaking for such a small room as the orange paint that he picked as his accent wall took some getting and then took some getting on the wall. Thankfully 3 coats later it now looks pretty good and I am even more thankful that he has picked a completely different colour and brand of paint to put on the other three walls.
So guess what I will be doing this weekend..................
Hope you all have a great weekend whatever you may be getting up to....
