This week we had some time alone whilst the children were visiting relatives. We decided that we would have a trip to the City of Durham, it is so close to us but I cant remember the last time we went together it is usually the children and I that go. We had a nice lunch in a small restaurant that overlooks the river (forgot to get a picture) and then had a look around some of the shops looking for a birthday present for a certain little boy! The present issue was quickly resolved and we had a walk up to the Cathedral, this is somewhere I have visited since childhood and a place that remains of great interest to me. It is a shame that the weather was poor, the rain seemed to last all day.
They say that time flies when you are having fun and the end of the day seemed to come around all to quickly, but here are some pictures for you to have a look at.


I cant believe it was April when I posted my last post !!! The last month has been a total blur and I dont know where the time went.
I guess that the main event here over the last few weeks has been the development of our (small) vegetable patch in the garden. We have spent alot of time clearing the area and removing hundreds of weeds, but they say that "If a job is worth doing then it is worth doing well". We now have, Leeks, onions, potatoes, courgette, Beetroot, Tomatoes, Peppers, Chilli, Carrots, Parsnips, Turnips and Strawberrys growing in our own little spot. I have waited for years for the day when I was growing our own, we also have a selection of herbs growing. I cant wait for the first veggies to be ready !!!!
These are the pictures before the planting, I will have to take some pictures of what we have planted soon..
