Anyway these will be really useful for the summer, they took quite a lot of filling and I have to say that buying soil is not fun. The rest of the garden was given a wash down and a weed and now it is looking much better, I hope we haven't scared away the rest of the sunshine now.
I didn't feel much like being indoors sewing while the weather was glorious as you never know how long it will last, we also had a trip to Castleton and a bit of a walk around there. The rest of the time was just spent in the garden . I
Now that the evenings are lighter I have felt much more productive and various ways, I am sticking to practising my guitar every night, doing 20-30 minutes of pilates and I have started a Norwegian course that I have been doing for just over a week. So that I don't forget anything I made myself a little tick calendar.
I managed to repair three pairs of jeans and turn another pair into shorts, I did a few tops and alterations for people I know and I completely reshaped a jacket I made a while ago but forgot the before and after photos.
I have been getting more books read, this is in part due to being more strict with my online reading. I do love to read online but I have a tendency to jump through the links on a topic when I am interested. This can be good for learning but also bad for concentration so I am trying to limit my use of online articles or read them alongside a book where I can. I will share more on this another day as it is a topic all on it's own really.
On Saturday we visited a fabric shop in Barnsley as I needed a zip, only to find a closing down sale! This is sad as the shop has been there for years however the last we visited it had new owners/managers or whatever and the boss was clearly humiliating a member of staff in front of all the customers, we were embarrassed for her. So maybe there is a reason it is closing if that was a reflection of life for staff at the shop on a regular basis. I did manage to bag a £1.50 remnant while I was there, it is not very big but enough for a small skirt, I will share another day. I'm off to work on my to do list :)
