Whatever you do keep your whites off the grass


Dear Myself.
Maybe you shouldn't wear white plimsoles to do the gardening in, because it results in such a terrible mess and a white wash is really not ideal for you as we know. Also buying your gloves from poundland may come across as a wise idea, but the thistles have the last laugh when the gloves pack up after 5 minutes of being worn. I know you loved your sweeping this weekend, so stick to that instead of frappe making. Although hiding it under cream and butterscotch sauce was a good shout.
Give Littlebum and Schmidtbum there manly time together, and although they miss you still, they're super excited for you to return and I reckon they're preparing themselves for your floral overload. They've had many chats about this already.
And finally, light a candle more often, because it really did make you an excited little soul to see it lit whilst in the shower. It's the simple things that please you as we've established from receiving the plant pot. And they're the best kind.
Look forward to your weekend. Your first real BBQ awaits you.
Yours forever (literally), myself.

P.s - We know people may be fooled by the floral gloves/hairy leg situation. But what's worse, them thinking  you're gross and the legs are yours? Or the fact your boyfriends wore floral gloves without a fight?

  1. Those gloves are insaane especially paired with those hairy legs ;) I'm sure Schmidt and Littlebum are eagerly plotting your return lady!

  6. I'm glad you address the floral gloves/hairy legs situation - I did have a double take! ;) Littlebum loves your florals I see - you'll have no problem covering the house in them. :) Those frappes look great too, something I've always wanted to try at home! What went wrong?! x

    1. Haha, yes yes thought it needed to be brought to people's attention ;)
      it didn't really go toooooooo wrong, it could have just been thicker. I added ice, and ice cream but apparently you should use condensed milk (i used normal!) xx

  13. I fear I may begin to look like some weird stalker because I seem to have commented on most of your posts recently haha, but since I stumbled across your blog I am in loveee with it! haha (: Your pictures are so cute! And I really think that although those poundland gloves may have been attacked by many thorns they are definitely worth that pound since they beat any old gardening gloves in the style stakes! (: xx

    1. oh lady you are most certainly not looking like a stalker. it's so lovely to hear things like this, and i really appreciate it.
      of course, besides the thorn poking.. poundland gloves all the way, means i get to buy more of them too!x

  20. Gardening and relaxing showers/baths are two of my main loves in life! I think when you get your own house, especially with a lovely boy, you realise what the important things are; cuddles with hammies, decorating your nest with lovely things, planting pretty things in the garden, barbecues, candles... Enjoy them all! X
