A Pretty Good Day...

Well, despite being rather badly sunburnt and having an incipient headache, I feel rather darn good today - it's been a nice one. To start with, when I get up in the mornings I'm faced with these two cuties...
...Jasper the ancient mutt and.....
....Clovis who looks so elegant and aloof but in actual fact spent half his walk this morning rolling in a large heap of grass cuttings with his legs in the air. Who can resist these faces?

Then I had to go and collect a parcel from the Post Office depot and upon ripping it open in the car park (patient is not a word in my vocabulary!) I discovered the beautiful bracelet I commissioned Sybille at Magpie Magic to make for my sister's birthday - isn't it gorgeous? (Don't worry, my sister has an aversion to computers, there is no way she will see this before the day!)

But not only that, Sybille had popped in a little surprise for me, a matching ring! I absolutely adore it and have been waving my hand about and admiring it all day!

And in the garden I discovered that my nasturtiums have started to grow.....

......my vegetables are looking almost good enough to eat....

...that's the first time I have thwarted the snails and managed to grow a lettuce beyond three leaves - yay!

Finally, I sat for 4 hours in the blazing sun at a school fair and made very little money but it is still a profit and hopefully my sunburn will turn to a lovely shade of brown by tomorrow without peeling! Thank you to those few who did buy from me, as always it is much appreciated!

As the day will end with some yummy Moroccan chicken and the first sweetcorn of the season in front of the tv and Dr. Who, with the prospect of doing absolutely NOTHING tomorrow except maybe sauntering round the garden centre, I'm feeling not bad at all...
