This week, for the first time this year, I ventured out into the garden to attempt a bit of a sort out. Walking out of my door to be greeted by a gale-force wind, I was pleased to be able to remove my hat and scarf because it actually wasn't that cold (!) and the sun shone the whole day long. Daring to climb the steep bank next to our house to feast my eyes on a whole host of dancing snowdrops, I decided to try and capture their beauty, but photographs never seem to do them justice. I even attempted a video but I need to work on my skills before sharing on here. We also took delivery of our new DSLR camera, and I am so excited to get started!
Over the weekend I managed to clean the polytunnel and give the garden a spruce to prepare for the planting season. There's nothing better than that satisfying feeling of being ready and poised to begin. I also bought some new herbs for the hanging basket next to our front door - I'll be able to swing out and grab a handful now whenever I'm cooking.
Mr CC and I took Bella for a walk with her favourite toy, and spent a happy time running (yes, I know!) through the fields, chasing the wind home for our reward of sausage sandwiches.
I also received some positive news from work this week; regardless of what (if anything) will result from it, it's always nice to hear that you're seen as a valued employee and that people recognise the hard work you put in on a daily basis. Mr CC and I went to the local pub for dinner to finish off the successful day and consumed some local cider before heading home for relaxation, then blogging for me and hammering away making bee hives for him: perfect!
