However, she is totally not bothered and is quite happy that she has "a condition" that has such a cool name, I think she can't wait to tell the kids at school that she must stay out of the sun, (like a vampire) but is glad that she doesn't glisten like that bloke out of Twilight..
So, apart from Charlotte's Vampireism, the garden is looking better and last month, along with the sand/vegetable pit, I ordered a parasol, gazebo (for the rabbits) and a few other odds and ends for the garden. This area is just outside the back door and it's nice to sit here under the shade. We have a south facing garden and little shade so the parasol is lovely and makes such a difference.
Here are some of the sweet peas and dahlias that have grown, next to this pot is the sweet peppers and chillies.
And finally, the council have been recycling more and are now taking plastic and food waste. We are able to recycle food waste, cans and tins, paper, cardboard, glass, garden waste and now plastic. I collect the food waste in a pot and at the end of the day wrap it in a piece of newspaper and put it into the brown wheelie bin. We have gone from having 7 or 8 bags of rubbish a week to just 2, how good is that?
I know this is gross but I wanted to share with you my food castle....Yuck...
