8th September; We have this bay tree growing outside our kitchen and every year Ken hacks it back and every year it grows madly until my kitchen is really dingy! So today he hacked it back again and completely filled the composting dustbin; it was so huge he had to use the hedge trimmers!
9th September; Hmmm remember this fabric map that we made at the local village fun day? Well I am still sewing the houses on! Jess helped me tonight and we managed 23. Still lots to go...
10th September; I decided what I wanted to buy with a bit of my birthday money. This book was advertised in a magazine I read in America and I loved the quilt it is all about. I am very tempted to hand-make each and every one of the 225 squares and triangles and challenge Burn and Linda to join me! Well girls?
12th September; I am still doing the 5:2 diet where you fast for 2 out of the 7 days of the week and only eat 500cal on those days. It is going well; I have lost about 1 1/2 stone so far and this was my very low calorie pizza that I had for tea today.
14th September; a trip to Bath for another Uni day and we had a very long-winded route that included 5 trains and 3 tube trains! I was very excited to visit Baker Street tube where I took this shot. It was really easy to imagine well-dressed gentlemen strolling about in top hats with ladies wearing gowns!
15th September; and finally my sweet peas are flowering! Better late than never but they do smell divine!
