Sweet peas and succulents

Our house is a total tip this week. Our fridge/freezer broke down last week and we had a new one delivered today. I can’t believe how much mess sorting it out has generated. We had to defrost the freezer, dispose of the ancient contents and deal with four year’s worth of dirt and dust. Maybe there are some virtuous people who clean behind their fridges every year – sadly, I’m not one of them. As soon as you start having to use all your time on extra chores, the rest of the house slips into complete squalor surprisingly quicky.

Oh well. I’m not on top of the mess yet, but I have been enjoying some pretty things amidst the chaos. The heady scent of freshly picked sweetpeas from my mum’s garden…

My sweetpeas aren’t quite ready yet, but they’re almost there…

These sweetpeas are waiting to be moved to a better spot when the new fence goes up. On which note, we finally recieved a special delivery today…

Weather permitting, fence-building should be happening this weekend. I’d like to get it painted at some point, but I think we’ll save this job for the Autumn when there’s less growing. I can’t wait to have a decent fence again without massive holes in it!

Heading back indoors, come and say hello to my first succulent…

Hopefully we’ll be ship-shape again soon!
