Sunday. It was bright but blustery day today. As part of much-needed Emma-therapy I took her up breakfas in bed of cereal, white tea, and buttered hot cross buns and then settled down to a leisurely breakfast myself. Then I headed out into the garden to clean out the animals but got distracted by giving the grass a first cut of the Spring which led to trimming the hedge (something which I somehow failed to do all of last year)…

Then, I finally ended up cleaning out the animals, to take me up until lunch. In the afternoon, Emma-therapy continued with a Sunday afternoon drive out in search of fields of  woolly baaa lambs. En route, we ended up at Bunker’s Hill Nursery, to buy a new barrel to pot up our Magnolia Stellata. Whilst there I found three lavender plants going cheap on the graveyard stand to extend our newly formed hot bed in the front garden.

All in all, today, I’ve had a lot of fresh air and exercise, rounded off with a new Slimming World recipe of Jamaican Beef Pepperpot Stew which was deliciously spicy.
