Hello lovely people..
Hello everyone , how are you?
As you can tell i have been a non blogger for a while. I feel like i lost my blogging mojo for a while but now its coming back a little so here goes.
Here at Flowertot Mansion life has been good. We have had some expensive bits to sort out like a new pond pump and filter and a new electric bike for my husband. Our old one was literally starting to fall apart, a new noise and bit needed fixing every other day..so we invested in a brand new one and have been slowly doing up the old one so we have a spare. Both expensive items to purchase but not a whimsical purchase either of them, both we definitely needed. O and then our bloody tv went kaput..couldn't believe it. It was less than 2 years old and just black and nothing. We did buy a new one and i have taken out insurance on this one. Probably not very frugal but i am grateful to be able to replace it.
I have been doing little make over projects in the house and here is the first one.
Having been successful with the first clock i then decided to do the dining room one.
I personally think that this looks much better.
It stands out against the fireplace and looks new.
The back garden is a little hive of activity from dawn til dusk here and i never get bored of looking out the window as there is always something going on or flitting about.
I have been experimenting with my camera and took some pics of a gorgeous bunch of roses i received for my birthday.
I love the close up ones..so pretty.
My husband cut my hair and coloured it..yes this time it stayed the correct colour and not some bright bloody dandelion.
I had a reply from the National Trust and it was a lovely email..i now understand why they feel they had to close the gates at Belton, however due to public pressure the gates will be re-opened next month with a booth to take details and card memebership details so if they are abused again by members of the public they have at least a name.I honestly didn't know that it was going on up there..disgraceful that people abused members of staff for being asked to follow the rules.
There is probably lots more to tell you all but i can' think of it right now.
So there you are all up to date..
Take care everyone and stay safe.
