Thank you for talking the trouble to help me. I do appreciate it


When you wrote this post, my hubby and I had just come back from a glorious weekend in Wensleydale and Swaledale. We had beautiful weather for once and climbed some hills.

We have a new plastic greenhouse too, which is full of fuchsias that over wintered in the garage. They are sprouting nicely now with new growth which is pleasing. And like you, I have dumped my tumble dryer for cheaper and fresh smelling garden dried clean clothes.

Life will be much better if you enjoy simple things <3

so looking forward to cycling over your way next week. Do hope the rain abates though as I hate putting the tent( me made) up in the rain.

Lovely post. I always drool over greenhouses other people have, but in the middle of a hot Australian summer, not sure I need one, but I could get lots started in our cooler months. Hmmm! Your lunch certainly looked yummy. Ah....walking at Bolton Abbey brings back memories of last year on holiday in UK & as for your millionaires shortbread (we call it choc/caramel slice) I make it, & cut into much smaller slices than you see in Cafes, so not too bad on the waistline. Look forward to hearing "allotment" news. Take care.


Summer is on it's way to Canada too... I'm loving the warm sun and full days outside. Fresh air and green smells as everything is blooming and turning green.

Thanks for sharing your pretty green pictures Lucy!

The allotment & crochet are my favourite ways to relax. I too have a plastic greenhouse and it's brilliant - it has lasted years (you can buy replacement covers if it perishes in the sun). No need for fancy expensive gimmicks. All good simple pleasures. I can recommend potato varieties: "Colleen" and "Nicola" - good yield and nice texture. Good luck!


Smashed avo also works extremely well with griddled halloumi in place of goats cheese :)

Loved your post. Simple things make life Grand!


Mmmmm, goats cheese and avocado....one of my favourite combos! Looking forward to hearing all about the allotment adventures :)


The simple things we enjoy in life are usually the best things xx

Please tell me more about millionaire's shortbread. I never heard of it. Do you make it? Sounds very tasty.


My greenhouse blew away in wind lol


I have a little greenhouse like that too, SO useful, although it always ends up crammed to bursting. Maybe I need two... So excited that you have an allotment, I shall look forward to hearing all about it. Glad you had a good weekend, lunch outside looks particularly excellent. CJ xx

Those all sound fab!!!I too cannot wait for (me) pollen season to be through so I can peg the laundry out, soon now. Roses are blooming here and we're waiting for it to dry up again to finish setting plants out in the garden. Good luck with your allotment!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


You know what, join the other half of this world with being size 16 and bigger. Enjoy that shortbread and avocado sandwich, life's to short to hope and work on a body that's not going to be yours.Keep it healthy is all I ever advice, your walks in the woods sure makes it healthy enough.Find something colourful to wear and be happy for the bride. <3


I am excited about the allotment. I love gardening and that will be so fun for you.

Jenny Smith

We have a "greenhouse" like that too. It's lasted for years (touch wood) and it's doing us proud. I can't resist millionaires shortbread either and my kids aged 40 and 36 still ask me to make it x
