A lovely day

We had a lovely day yesterday. The girls went over to hubs' mom's house in the afternoon to make clay pots and play with their foster children. Whilst they were there hubs and I went out for lunch together (something we never do) and then on to our local garden centre. It was nice and relaxing.

Here's what we got:

All these lovely Spring flowers really cheer me up.

My pink watering can certainly cheers me up! :)

Afterwards I finally made a start on cleaning my kitchen cupboards. I scrubbed the tops and doors and then cleaned out the inside of one.

This is just one half of the cupboard I cleaned out. I know it's not that interesting but I'm so pleased I've made a start! :)

I have the Spring cleaning feeling.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.


  1. Well, one would know you are in England just looking at your store of Marmite, peanut butter and syrup! All things that we have to hunt for, or bring back from UK, here.

  2. Life without Marmite or golden syrup would not be great! :)

  3. Your Spring flowers are lovely.
    My kitchen cupboards need a good sorting out too. All the house needs decluttering, the spring cleaning bug hasn't arrived here yet, all inspiration welcome!

  4. With snow in the forecast and freezing temperatures it is a nice sight - spring flowers.

  5. I love all the things you got, so spring-y and cheery.

    And good for you for getting started. A little at a time will get you done in no time!

    I'll have to Google 'Marmite' because I don't know what it is. (o:

  6. Jan - It's not quite Spring really, but I couldn't resist the pots. I only went in to get some Hyacinths! :) So technically Spring cleaning can wait a while.

    Joyce - I hope it's not too frosty here, I wouldn't want my plants damaged!

    Michele - Lol, Marmite is an acquired taste. You either love it or hate it. It's spreadable yeast extract.
