A Hel of a time in the garden!
Well hello all I’m pretty sure that in no time at all you will all come to know me quite well. I love nothing better than working away in the garden knee pads on, fleece zipped up tightly or at least on the cooler days and my loyal buddy my MP3 player!
I have to warn you I’m a bit of a looney tune but in a nice way of course after all it’s only one life we get so why not enjoy it!
We moved into our present home in May 2006 after being in our other home since we married way back in darkest 1983 it was sad to leave our garden as we all spent many a merry time in it over the years.
When our two boys came along (quite quickly I might add) we always made sure that our garden was for all of us and if some plants got trod on then no fuss was made after all they would always grow back.
Having our boys enjoying the garden with us was very fun and it’s really amazing how one can successfully adapt a garden round children.Bob my husband (very handy DIY wise) made the boys a HUGE sandpit so huge in fact that it was about 4ftx 10ft thank goodness for tarpaulins otherwise the local cats would have had a field day!
After the boys grew out of building sandcastles and car roads the pit was turned into a stunning Alpine bed.
Although our boys are still at home and show no hurry to move on both Bob and I intend to have our new gardens (lucky us we live on a corner and have front, side and a back gardens) to be child friendly as most of us knows a garden takes years to get there but children can pop up at anytime! Hel.xxx.
