Good things

Well hello what a lovely crisp frost today. My sweetpea seedlings that I planted in the Autumn are baring up in the greenhouse. I usually plant them in the Spring but thought this time I would give it a go earlier for a head start. I also planted lettuce seeds about the same time but they are very tiny so I gave them to the chickens, they gobbled them up super quick and must of thought what a treat.
I have today marzipaned my sons wedding cake and plan to ice it very soon as he is getting married in a few weeks time.
We are all very excited as our daughter and son-in-law are arriving tomorrow from Australia, we havent seen her for 3 years and we are meeting our grand-daughter for the 1st time and will be seeing our little grandson again.
I have started knitting a little striped hooded jacket for my other lovely grandson who was born on Christmas day. I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in the pale blue and cream.
Well I am just starting to get used to my way around the blog thankyou for popping by.


  1. Hi Sarah. I've just seen that you are my newest follower so I thought I'd look you up. You sound as though you have a busy time ahead with your son's wedding and your family visiting from Australia. Enjoy this time and have fun with your new grandchildren.

  2. Hi Patricia
    Many thanks for your message and being the first to leave a comment. Blogging is new to me so I have alot to learn. It is great to see all the family again.The next few weeks will be very precious.

  3. I am excited to see you have a greenhouse. I got one last year. It was a fun experience.

  4. I am hoping to get out in the greenhouse this weekend to sow a few more veggies. The last few nights I have had to put a night light in to warm it up a bit.Cant wait to get started though.


It would lovely to receive your comments, hear about what you do and where you live. Thank you for visiting me here in the Orchard, I will reply as soon as I can. Do visit again. Many happy times.
