Tropical Connections, Getting Wet & Sheds
I've just started reading Susie Vereker's book, Tropical Connections and as I suspected I'm loving it.
I love Susie's books. Having travelled the world first as an army officer's daugher and then as the wife of a diplomat, she's experienced many different cultures and fascinating places, which we can enjoy through her wonderful novels. I don't care how busy I am this weekend, I'll definitely be making time for this book.
I've just spent an hour watering my parched garden, as well as the dog who seems to think that the hose pipe is there solely to entertain him. So he's soaking wet and a little muddy now too and only two days after being bathed. So typical.
It's time to vote for your favourite Shed of the Year 2010. I had such fun entering my shed into the 2009 competition and couldn't believe it when I ended up being a category winner. (I'm not in it this year so please don't worry about voting for me). I was even a guest blogger for the International Shed Women's Week in March this year, and to think that until a couple of years ago, I though sheds were simply cobweb-filled places where you store old bicycles and garden tools.
Have a great weekend.
