Out of the loft!

A couple of months ago I decided to sort through my loft and get rid of all the unwanted and forgotten about bits and pieces stored there. It needs re-lagging so that will be easier to do too. I didn’t realise that it would take so long or how much was up there. It is now all sorted, it was fun to find some toys (tiny lead cat and kittens set!) from my childhood and also some things that I have sold on Ebay very successfully. Lots of rubbish has gone to the tip and lots more to the village jumble sale being held next week. Now I can get back to normal and, weather permitting, out into the garden a bit more. I did have a couple of days in Suffolk at the end of March and really enjoyed seeing the House in the Clouds….

I have popped in to GoY from time to time with limbs aching from climbing up and down the loft ladder and found myself falling asleep over the computer. Fresh air and good weather is what I need now :)

What a very pretty garden Gee.Very many congratulations for sorting the loft. I think it would take months t sort ours...

Gee, well done on sorting your loft, something I shall never be able to do due to my feeling so claustrophobic in one! I can get to the top of the ladder and peer around, then wait for OH to pass me anything we need. Pathetic really, but there you are.

The House in the Clouds are fabulous, not seen anything like that before.

Your garden is looking lovely, hope you didn't get the torrential rain that we had today. So bad that the lawn had a big puddle in one area :o(

Lovely insight into what is growing in your garden well impressed with the layout.

Oh those bluebells, one of my favourite sights to see.
Your garden is full of treasures and is looking lovely. Let's hope for a nice spell of settled, dry, warm weather to get us all out there!

Thank you all. I am a bit wobbly on the loft ladder especially when carrying something, Shirley, but OK when I'm up there. We did get the awful rain yesterday and more today, like you I have a puddle in the lawn. Going to Brighton tomorrow to see my twin daughters in the marathon, so hope it's dry there.

Will you watch them start off at Preston Park? You could do that and then cross the road to the Rock Gardens while they're running their 26 miles! Forecast is for dry, sunny weather, but wrap up well as it's chilly down here on the coast! Please let me know how they got on ... :o))

Good blog, thanks - love the layout and style in the paved garden, presumably its your back garden... clever use of space.

Not sure where we will be, Shirley, but unlikely that we will see the start. We usually try to be there for them at the end. Just heard that eldest daughter has sciatica so cannot run but younger one will be doing her thing :)

Thanks, Bamboo, the paving has worked out well and I don't regret getting rid of the lawn from the back garden.

Ouch, I know how painful Sciatica is! Beautiful weather for the marathon .....

Congratulations on clearing out your loft, Gee! :-)) Fortunately living in a flat we don't have lofts! Nevertheless we do have several cupboards that get filled to overflowing with things - one especially I had to remove lots of games & puzzles, we'd bought for our grandkids, from a few days ago as they were falling out & I was getting fed up with it. I was looking for something I wanted there - can't remember what! - now they are all on top of a clothes cupboard in our bedroom! At least there they won't be falling out!

Very nice blog.
Don't the bluebells look lovely? We must get out to the woods and see them before they finish.Last year, being busy as we'd not long moved here, we didn't get a chance but I do love to see them .

The garden looks lovely, you have lots of colour, not the bright summer colours, but more subtle and without the bright ones, you have time to look closely and appreciate these instead.
The Blackbirds certainly look busy, we have had a nest, but I think the Rook's took the babies as there was a frantic Blackbird flying at a Rook which looked like it had something in it's beak. Nature can be cruel.
The bluebell woods are lovely, like Paul must get out to see them before they go over.
Your cloud pruning looks good even if it is a 'work in progress'. I am going to have a go at this myself as well as bit of topiary - you can only try, can't you?
I too use eBay to sell unwanted stuff, it gives me some 'mad money' to spend on plants - what else?

Lovely blog Gee. The bluebell woods are a real joy to behold. Hope your blackbirds manage to rear their chicks. Your garden is amazing since you reorganised it a while back. It looks so different. You were busy in your loft in March and I was busy trying to reorganize the house end of the herbaceous border between the rainy bits. Gone grassy butwhether that is a wise move is debateable. I hope to do a blog now that the garden is colourful. Trying to contend with some entrepreneur wanting to build on a tiny plot at the bottom of our garden. Never get any peace these days from the next crisis.

Had a lovely time in Brighton, chasing across the route to cheer on my daughter. I was exhausted by the time we returned home last night so I cannpt imagine how all the runners feel, especially those in fancy dress.

Went in the woods this morning to see more bluebells and came a cropper on one slippery slope. Sat down hard in a very muddy area (can't bear to think about the impression I must have left in the mud!) so think I will not venture so far until terra firma has firmed up!

Dorjac, they seem to build anywhere nowadays or built up and out wherever. Soon there will be no smaller homes in our village as all the bungalows are being bought up and extended dramatically. No where for youngers who want to start off either. Very sad and it makes me cross. Sorry, didn't mean to moan. Sounds like you're doing the opposite of me and making more grassy areas. Hope it works out.

You're right Gee. there was an attractive small bungalow at the top of our lane and its been bought and extended into a small palace - lost all its character.

Gee, I browsed through the photos from Sunday on-line from the local newspaper and laughed my head off at some of the costumes the runners wore! One or two must have been really heavy too. Glad you enjoyed the day. :o)
