Alas this was not to be as the snow came on Friday and didn't show any signs of stopping.
This is how my garden looked when I threw back the curtains Saturday morning.
Oh well I thought - no matter at least I have have next week off work so I can get out in the garden then.
NO CHANCE, it's now Tuesday and the garden is still covered in a thick blanket of the white stuff......Grrrrrrr!!!
So back to the weekend, we did manage to pop out late on Saturday afternoon in search of Eastery decorations and paint. Again things didn't go quite to plan as there were no decorations to be had and we ended up having to order the paint.
Determined not to return home empty handed and with spring in mind (despite the snow) these little beauties were bundled into the boot, along with a little glass jar, a new washing up bowl, a rosemary plant and a few chocolatey treats.
Armed with my new cloths and rubber gloves Sunday saw me set to work on the kitchen (not before time) No stone was left unturned as I scrubbed and polished EVERY nook and cranny.
and my reward for all this hard work..................
The very lovely Mr. Kitchen
I feel the weekend didn't turn out too badly after all!
