Hen night part one

Saturday night we went out in the city centre for part one of my hen night. 

My friend thought it compulsory to dress me up in all the hen night stuff she could find, knowing she isn't intending to get married so I won't be able to get her back!

I had a great night, and didn't get home till 3 apparently.

Part two will be a sit down meal in June, I just wanted to get the drinking part out of the way early.

I'm still here

Hello everyone. I'm still here, just got carried away with things and neglected my blog a little too long. 

Spring has most definitely sprung where I am. In the pattern of the last few years it seems like April showers don't exist any more as we've had a lot of sunshine so far. I've already been wearing my sun cream as I'm pretty much a vampire and I go crispy surprisingly fast. The dogs overheat quickly too, and I'm able to get some lovely dopey photos of them in the sun:

This is a photo of the lawn:

It looks a lot more like a desert at the moment. The dogs have killed most of the grass and it's been so dry it's all cracked. Sam is quite happy with it now, as he absolutely hates mowing, but I'm thinking of sowing some grass seeds and trying to keep the dogs (and the birds!) off it for a while.

I've been busy making wedding plans so I'm behind on planting this year. I've planted some seeds today, tomatoes, broad beans, peas, mixed salad, basil, and beetroot. I need to get some potatoes ready too. I don't know how many will germinate as the seeds are all pretty old now, but I'd rather use them up before I buy new ones.

What have you got growing at the moment?
