Been busy..

Hello all,how are you today?
Welcome to new follower on Bloglovin..Wellycladgirl..Hello and welcome.

Sorry i haven't  posted for a few days..we have been busy here at Flowertot Mansion.
Whilst the weather is nice or at least not freezing and chucking it down with rain, we disappear outside to do jobs and the girls go off to play.
We made our own sweet snacks..we don't  have chcocolate or sweets in the house..they are what we consider a real treat so its only now and again i actually buy them. The girls mostly have fruit,raisins or nuts .
We had a few bananas left so we made Peanut-butter and chocolate bananas.
I had Iris as a kitchen helper and Fern as photographer.

Cut up bananas and get everything ready

Put a lollipop stick in the bottom

Cover in crunchy peanut butter

Melt some chocolate

 Dip in the melted chocolate..and as Fern aptly described them..turds on sticks..

 Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes until chocolate is set..they may have looked like turds on sticks..but they ate them all..
This is my latest cost me a bag of baby toys in a straight swap..isn't it wonderful..

I am going to polish it up with my homemade furniture polish..and have it in my living room.
I have a little restoration project on the mum gave me my grans old iron..its covered in rust and very heavy..i am slowly but surely getting the rust off with a hard wire brush..once its mostly gone i am going to paint it in Black Hammerite  and have in on display in my kitchen..

 It might take a while but i will get there
 I also washed my Make up brushes..they are good quality ones and i don't want them to ruin..and they started to smell a bit rather than use a dirty smelly one i cleaned them.They smell clean and look all fluffy again.
 Hubby has put his plants outside to harden off..the Pumpkins have gone crazy and so have the Courgettes..the Grapevine has started to get tendrils for grabbing..
 All the Tomatoes are going well..
The new potted on Lobelia and Geraniums are also doing well..

The girls and i sowed Cress in little egg cups .
I have baked and cleaned and got all my laundry dry on the line.
I have sold 4 more items on Ebay and listed a few more too.
I have cleaned the windows inside and all doors and frames..hubby did the windows outside.
I sorted the bookcases out and moved a lot of books about..i do this now and again so that i can actually see what i have and also i like to read one i haven't for a while.
I moved some plants around again..i gave the Wandering Jew back to hubby for cuttings and i moved the Fern into the living room on the mantel piece .
I have bought the girls some Canvas shoes for the summer and also 2 skirts for a swimsuit..all were last minute bargains and 1 skirt only cost 75p..
I also bought us our very own copy of The Velveteen Rabbit..its a lovely story and i am reading a chapter each day as part of our reading list.
I am bidding as i type on a lovely coat for Iris for this Winter..yes i know its not even Summer yet but i like to shop 6 months in advance so i am not scrabbling about at the last minute.

I actually managed to get through to Sky last week and was on the phone for 2 minutes tops..all i wanted to know was when is my contract up..i found that out and before the chap could start his speel about this that and the other..i politely thanked him and hung up..probably not very polite on my behalf but i got my answer and that was it..we are going to get rid of it.I couldn't before as i was in a contract with them and now its coming to an end and i will be so much better off.We will be going elsewhere for our internet as ours is a tad slow at times..i won't be having a house phone..i can't remember the last time ours rang to be honest.As for the tv well we will just have freeview channels  and we invested in a Firestick..its bloody brilliant..and well worth the money. Having the Sky go will save us a tremendous amount each month.

Can i ask you all something,is your Chemist as useless as ours is.
My hubbys prescription is never ready and always has stuff missing..they blame the doctors for not sending it..bull***t..i am getting fed up with them. Yesterday was awful..i was waiting almost 45 minutes and i was on the verge of passing was so hot in there..just because they are not doing anything and swanning around in t-shirts..what about the customer..god i felt so ill my legs were about to give out on me..thank god they did it in the end and i got out of there into the cool fresh air..sad thing is i have to go back in a month and i can guarantee it will be the same.
Well the weather is not going to last is it..we are forecast very heavy rain tomorrow. The garden will be packed up again and stuff put away..until the sun comes out again.
What have you all been up to ladies/gent.
