Another quick blog from me, which I’m writing as I head into my weekend off – and it’s raining! So annoying but hey, it will be good for the garden, won’t it? As I’ve mentioned more than once I’ve been working on the garden since we moved house more than two years ago and it’s really taking shape now. We’ve had some great days in it with friends over the past little while, including a lovely celebration when my new book The Happy Family was released two weeks ago. (Spoiler – it’s another psychological thriller and they are actually NOT very happy for long…!)
The garden was a big square of nothing when we moved in – just a mass of overgrown shrubs and not a single flower or border. We now have a lovely curved border along one side so I thought I’d share a little “before and after” video. There’s more work still to do, but at least we have plenty of colour now!
The sun seems to have vanished temporarily, but it will be back, and while it was still shining I took this photo for the Kipling fans out there. The brand has a Today’s Special Value offer coming up on Thursday 24th; it’s the cute little Trista crossbody bag and, staying with the garden theme, I couldn’t decide if I preferred the Flower Art or Bright Palm print so I wore both! There are three other colour choices too, and this one has the Kipling furry monkey keyring which is now only available at QVC. The bag is a neat little size but with lots of compartments as you’d expect from the brand, so perfect for summer days out. And of course it will be at a great price for one day only.
That’s it for now – see you soon!
