Post-holiday Blues

I was in beautiful, truly beautiful Amsterdam with my hubby for a few days there and it was, well beautiful :D We didn't indulge in any of the 'herb' chill out remedy let me put that out there right now! We love Pugs not Drugs (not my drawing; the genius is Gemma Correll). But the beer and wine is oh so fine!

There wasn't a single in bloom Tulip to be seen but it was enjoyable, cold, very damp but lovely. I even saw some (out of season, naturally, but rather tidy) allotments from the train just on the outskirts of the city - yay!!

But I had the flu the whole time and felt so ill - poor me. Today my temperature was all over the place and Andrew went to the Allotment without me! However he has done incredible things to our shed and tomorrow I am going, so yes I AM :D I have seen blurry phone photos of the amazing DIY construction he has achieved and you are going to be so impressed.

Yes, I wrote this short post just to tell you that.

Our shed is going to be the most a cosy hideaway ever (on an alloment).


  1. Oooh, Amsterdam! Will you get to revisit when tulips are in bloom? Must be a gorgeous sight. And I can't wait to see what all Andrew's accomplished here in the dead of winter!

  2. You'll have to go again when you're feeling better and the tulips are in bloom!
    I look forward to seeing your cosy hideaway.
    Take care, Flighty xx

  3. Looking forward to the shed warming post reminds me that ours needs tidying,

  4. glad you'll have somewhere cosy to sit with Maggie and supervise work in progress.


I love to have visitors but LOVE it even more when they leave a little nugget of happiness behind in the form of a comment. I thank you for taking the time to send a little joy my way xx
