A lovely couple of days..

The last few day's have been lovely..

My Nan came to stay for 2 days and helped me with the garden. When we first moved here, the garden was a complete mess and because I didn't really know much about gardening.. Nan helped me to weed the whole thing and get it planted up with bulbs and some nice plants.

But seeing as I've been looking after Rose for the last few months, the garden had gotten a little unruly since spring began. I have been out there quite often doing little bits and bobs but I hadn't kept on top of the weeding.. this mayyy have had something to do with the fact I couldn't tell which plants were weeds and which were my lovely plants.. I thought that all the weeds were about to bloom with gorgeous flowers! Oops!

Well, anyway.. she came armed with her gardening gloves and clothes and we spent two day's sorting it all out. It's looking so so nice now, when the weathers a little better I will take some photo's to show you all.. And I should be able to keep on top of it a little more now, seeing as I've learnt what a few of the weeds look like..!

But here she is, hard at work.. chopping away at my Rose's!

                             I had a lovely surprise in the post today... some lovely magazines! : )

I have a subscription to Country Homes & Interiors and I always look forward to getting it every month in the post. It's always full of such lovely photographs and this month was no exception! I also love reading the 'At home with..' sections, the homes of these people are always incredible and well... a girl can always dream can't she..!?

The Cath Kidston magazine also came through my letter box and there are sooo many lovely things inside, I just want it all..! I know... greedy me...!

See! Such gorgeous pictures inside.. a treat for the eye's.. I love all the CK picnic bowls and cutlery, so scrummy..!

Rose has been a very happy girl today, she was a little grizzly the other day as we had to go and have her third set of jabs.. poor little girl has got some sore looking hard bumps where she's bruised from the injections. Ouch..! I don't mind needles at all, but seeing them go into her little legs is very difficult. The cries she let out were just horrible.. But looking on the bright side, at least she doesn't have to have any more injections until she's a year old now.

Got to head off to bed now as we are off to a wedding tomorrow, really looking forward to it. Although a little worried that Rose might be a bit of a handful towards the evening time.. the last wedding we went to, Rose was only tiny and just slept through most of the day..! It should be a lovely day though, I will let you know how it goes..

Oh and I almost forgot to say... hello to all my new followers! I can't believe it.. 23 followers! To be honest, I didn't really think that Anyone would be interested in reading my blog. But I'm so enjoying writing it, so I'm glad a few people are enjoying reading it too..!

(I'm having a bit of  problem though, the 'followers' section on my blog is blank and when I click on where it says I have 23 followers, that page is also blank. Is anyone else having the same problem? O do you have any advice on how to sort it out..? Thanks!)
