Day 27 - Sunday 27th January

"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?" - Dirty Harry

Are you feeling lucky today?

Today we woke up to blue skies and a lovely frosty ground. This is just the best type of weather – it really cheers me up. We had quite a lot to do today. We are taking some Leylandii trees out on the boundary between us and our neighbours. They were planted more than 20 years ago and are about 8ft high and have just got out of control. James and Will (the neighbour) have been chopping and sawing for most of the day and now they only have about 5 stumps left to get out. The garden looks so much bigger without them. Once they are down we will put a fence up. I think we are lucky to have such good neighbours – to help get the trees out and to share the cost of the fences.
Whilst they were doing this, I managed to get some crafting done and made a card for my Mum’s birthday and glittered a butterfly for an anniversary card. I also did the weekly food shop.
After that we went shopping to Dunelm Mill which is a furnishing shop. I managed to convince James that we needed some new bedding and being the lucky wife that I am, we now have some rather lovely burgundy embroidered silky sheets with matching cushions.
And he decided that he needed a big leather bean bag for the lounge so he can watch football on it with a beer!
He’ll be lucky – ZoĆ« has already decided that it is hers!!!
