Having completely industrially cleaned my living room and hallway yesterday, re-arranged the whole place, and then helped Peter start our MASSIVE garden project, we decided we needed a day off 🙂
The house is looking much better, the garden has been transformed, we had a huge bonfire & got rid of loads and loads of junk & weeds & brambles. We fixed the fence between our house and the soon to be re-occupied council house next door. (when we moved her we had amazing neighbours, Dorris aged 78 & Gordon aged 80. Gordon died earlier this year at the ripe old age of 92 & Dorris’s family have put her in a home. She was very sad and lonely without Gordon, so hopefully she will be happier there. They were married during the war aged 18 & 22, and had been together since Dorris was 14!! Will find a photo & tell what I know of their story on here sometime soon. They have a nice 3 bed house with a garden, so we are expecting a young family. Maybe some babysitting for the girls? Who knows.
Today summer has finally arrived! We have come down to our boat which was moored on a buoy in Langstone Sailing Club, and we have moved her to Emsworth Marina, probably for the rest of the summer so we can have more access.
Sitting on deck, sunbathing, listening to the tinkle of masts & the birds & ducks all around us. About to set off for a long walk back to Langstone Bridge shortly to collect the car along the foreshore 🙂 Just wish I could find my camera!! Oh well, if there is anything amazing to photograph I will have to have a go with my phone.
