What will today bring ?

Every day bring us a new challange in one way or another even if we dont relize it each day i try to be posative, helpfull and not moan as much as the prevoius day but working with the public can put a lot of strain on this theory so try to do to others what you can expect of them and it might just all work out nicely .if not just count to 10...........or in my case a 110 !!!

martys pond
Well as the sun seamed to be out for awhile i have enjoyed sitting in the garden doing my knitting ......a few year ago Marty bought me a lovely swinging chair and i have used it to death and it was looking a little worse for wear so as the garden was beginning to become alive with colour i decided to smarten up my chair .

Marty got some spray metal paint from work and i traipsed round all the places i could think of to get material i tackled the job in hand .

I am very proud of the results it looks just  as new if not better than the original very Laura Ashley my sister quoted
